Clubs and Activities
The school aims to encourage pupils to take part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities.
Although each child is primarily encouraged to perfect his/her personal best with regards to the development of physical skills, we feel that it is also important that pupils learn how to cope with, and enjoy, a moderate level of competitive activities.
During weekly PPA time release for teachers (10% Planning, Preparation and Assessment time), Sports Coaches and the School Music service are employed (in addition to Teachers and Teaching Assistants) to work in Years 1 – 6.
On occasions, members of local professional/semi-professional teams also come into school to provide pupils with football, rugby, cricket and short tennis coaching sessions.
The school netball, football and cricket teams regularly take part in local league matches and tag-rugby and cricket.
The KS2 pupils also participate in an annual swimming gala at South Hunsley. A range of athletic activities are organised which culminate in our school sports days. The junior pupils also take part in the annual Haltemprice Sports competition and opportunities are also provided for Year 6 pupils to take part in cluster sports activities at Wolfreton School.
The school grounds are fairly extensive and are sometimes used by other local sporting groups, some of which involve our pupils and/or parents, out of school hours.
Further extracurricular activities are organised for pupils and take place either during lunchtime or after school.
The school does not charge for most activities taking place wholly, or mainly within school hours. However, parents are usually requested to make a voluntary contribution towards any expenses incurred, e.g. visits or workshops with artists.
Pupils from Year 3 onwards are given the opportunity to learn how to play a variety of string and woodwind instruments through the teaching of three peripatetic music teachers. Towards this, parents are asked to contribute £40 per term, payable in advance (this amount will be reviewed on an annual basis).
