COVID -19 UPDATE: While we might not be able to offer our typical after school provision, we are very excited about building experiences into our online classrooms. Watch out for virtual experiences linked to our skills challenges, live author visits and career events.
At Bothal Primary School, we recognise the value that after school clubs add for our pupils.
We provide a variety of clubs to ensure that our pupils are given every opportunity to experience a wide variety of extra-curricular activities that provide character education as well as equipping pupils with the knowledge, skills and cultural capital they need to succeed in life.
All of our after school clubs have been carefully planned linking aspects of character education, cultural capital, careers links and skills for life.
All year groups are given the opportunity to take part in accredited courses as part of our after school provision.
Bothal Primary School offers wraparound care at both school sites. The provision is reasonably priced and offers sessions both before and after school. Details of session times and booking arrangements can be found by clicking on the below document. If you have any queries regarding wraparound provision, please contact Mrs Miller at the upper site (01670 812360) who will be happy to help.
Listed below are some of the clubs that we have to offer. Parents will be notified by letter and social media when clubs are available with guidance on how to sign up.
For more information on the specific areas of cultural capital development for after school clubs and our curriculum offer, please see ‘Cultural Capital Mapping’ within the main Cultural Capital page located within the 'School Information' menu
