We currently run Clubs for our pupils aged 8 and over on a Monday and Wednesday, after school, until 5 p.m. We aim to offer different experiences each half term and the activities we have covered over the last year are:
The Clubs are led by our experienced staff. Our aim is to include all pupils who want to participate in clubs; and the staff ratio depends entirely on the number attending and the support they need.
The Dance Club for students who needed additional support, was run in partnership with the local FE College and students from the performing arts course who supported our pupils. The benefits of this were two-fold – all students had at least 1:1 support and the FE College students gained valuable experience.
Parents and friends have also volunteered to help at various clubs which gives pupils an opportunity to work with different people.
As we know it is difficult for parents to collect their children after Club, we run transport home whenever possible for a small charge (maximum £5).
