COVID -19 UPDATE: While we might not have been able to offer our typical after school provision, we are very excited about re-establishing our strong extracurricular provisions for year group clubs. We are also excited to offer virtual experiences/clubs, which will be linked to our skills challenges and wider curriculum activities.
At Bothal Primary School, we recognise the value and opportunity that after school clubs add for our pupils.
We aim to 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. Pupils will have the opportunity to refine, develop and explore new skills that will be transferable across our curriculum.
Opportunities to take part in accredited courses as part of our after school provision will be available throughout the year.
We are also working closely with our School Sports Partnership and our community, to ensure our pupils have an opportunity to take part in competition, festivals and workshops.
Over the course of the year, all pupils will have the opportunity to attend a range of clubs that will develop and enhance their skills. Please use the link below to sign up to Spring term 1 clubs, which will commence after half term. Each club will run for a half term duration. Pupils must sign up by Friday 10th December as clubs will start on the first week back (after the Christmas break)
Important information Pupils must have appropriate sports clothing to take part in PE clubs - this includes suitable weather protection. Shin pads must be worn for any football clubs.
If a pupil’s behaviour at a club is not at the expected standard, then they may be asked to not return to that club for safeguarding reasons. Lower site clubs finish at 4.15pm and upper site clubs finish at 4.30pm. Pupils will be dismissed from the main entrance of each site. If your child is in Year 5 or 6, then please indicate whether they can walk home. Pupils in Year 3 and 4 MUST be collected.
For the safety of the pupils, parents are NOT allowed to park in the school car park to collect children unless they have a blue disability badge or permission from the Headteacher.
