We provide a rich selection of extra-curricular activities, including school visits and residential trips for our pupils.

We run a wide range of and extra-curricular activities, before school, during lunchtime and after school for children from Reception to Year 6. Different clubs run at different times of the year. We are fortunate that some of our clubs are staffed by specialists in sport and music. Your child will receive a letter from school detailing the time, place and frequency of the club if these are outside of normal school hours.

Inevitably, we are often oversubscribed, but we do have waiting lists, so please do not give up hope! With this in mind, please contact the school office as soon as possible if your child is no longer able to attend a club.

We believe it is important to offer our children a wide range of extra-curricular activities as it encourages them to become independent, confident and successful members of the community. Some of our clubs include:

  • Football
  • For the love of reading
  • Multi-Sports
  • Choir
  • Concert Band
  • Mandarin
  • Dance
  • Books for boys
  • Rounders

 

Educational Visits

School trips help to enrich children’s learning and broaden their horizons. Trips are usually linked to curriculum projects, assembly themes, or the children’s personal, social and health education. Throughout their time at our school, children will embark on many day trips e.g. to local museums, the theatre and cinema, farms, and local villages.

Children will spend a lot of time out and about in the local community, exploring the town they live in, visiting local places of worship, local history museums and of course the beach.

Children in Years 5 and 6 have the opportunity to go on residential visits which are designed to build team work, promote confidence and resilience.

All of these trips are designed to support the project work in the classrooms. In addition to visits, the school welcomes visitors from many different sectors of the community, including the local church, artists, storytellers, authors, poets, firemen and policemen to enrich in school learning opportunities.
 

STEM Sessions

Children across KS2 are given opportunities to attend STEM sessions at NCEAT’s Robert Stephenson Campus in Ashington. These sessions are delivered by specialist teachers and provide children with the opportunity to engage in hands-on learning and develop real-world skills.

STEM-based education teaches children far more than just science, technology, engineering and mathematical concepts. Through carefully planned projects, specialist teaching and access to well equipped specialist rooms it allows children to develop life-long skills including: curiosity, problem solving, communication, critical thinking, creativity and collaboration.

Sessions usually last a term and during this time children will have the opportunity to explore various learning areas including: Sewing, Cooking, Woodwork and Electronics.
