After School Clubs

After School Clubs - Procedure

From time to time students may have the opportunity to participate in educational or recreational activities before and after school.

Where attendance is optional we will not notify parents of activities which take place between 8.00am and 8.50am or between 2.30pm and 4.30pm. Students will be expected to let their parents know in these cases. A register of attendance will be taken so that we will know who is on the school site. Where learning support is organised on a ‘drop in’ basis at these times, students will be required to sign in and out.

Parents will be notified in advance, and their consent sought: if the activity is compulsory, if it finishes after 4.30pm or starts before 8.00am, if it involves payment or activities which are not normally encountered in lessons. (Students participating in school sports fixtures are excluded from this provision and on some occasions may leave the care of school staff after 4.30pm.)

In all cases we expect parents to make the necessary arrangement for the safe return home of students following after school activities.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, places are currently limited at each club.  If students wish to participate in a club they need to speak to the member of staff to check if there is space for them to join.  This should be done at least 24 hours before attending the club as it may not be possible for students to simply turn up and join on the day.
