There are 3 terms in the academic year and therefore 3 different after school club sessions. After school clubs begin on the second week of each term and finish on the second last week before the December, April and June holidays. One free after school club each term is offered and clubs start at 15.15 and end at 16.15 daily. After school clubs are designed to extend the teaching and learning which takes place during the normal school program. Clubs offered may range from specific academic areas to art and craft activities or from social opportunities and skills to specialised hobbies and interests. Due to the different developmental stage of children certain clubs are designed and run for different aged children. Typical examples of after school clubs offered can be found at the end of this information.
There are two stages to the organisation of our after school clubs:
Stage 1 – Each parent is emailed the complete list of clubs available and asked to choose clubs which they would like their child to attend without any additional cost. Every attempt is made to ensure that each pupil receives their 1st choice of club, although some clubs are extremely popular and therefore unfortunately this is not always possible.
Stage 2 – Once free clubs have been allocated parents are emailed again with the club choices where there are available spaces. There is an additional charge levied for these clubs and more detailed information about this can be obtained from the school’s office.
