Together with some outside sporting agencies, our staff offers a number of enrichment opportunities for the children outside of the classroom and the school day.
The clubs on offer vary from term to term and over the past year have included: Badminton; Karate; Survival Skills; Mindfulness; Chess; Weaving; Art; Story-Boxing; Story telling; Construction; Film Critique; Football; Cricket; and Tennis.
Many of our staff have expertise in these areas and are committed to bringing a wide range of opportunities to our children. Some children have even suggested some of the clubs themselves and we do endeavour to accommodate requests such as these wherever possible. In addition to clubs run by our own staff we have a number of coaches that come in to run sessions in association with their own companies. In the last year these have been run by Performance Sport, Reading Rockets, Nick Adley Tennis, and Shotokan Karate as well as Natural Wildness who have run Survival Clubs in addition to supporting the provision of Forest School- style sessions in school during the day.
We also have a number of peripatetic teachers including one for piano, recorders, futsal and also gymnastics who have been working with children during the school day to enhance their skills and interests.
Our enrichment provision is varied, and works well for our school community, but our needs and interests are ever-changing so we are always open to new suggestions and making new contacts in order to support the development of our school and our community.
If you have any further comments or ideas about enrichment clubs please do not hesitate to contact our school office or Miss Blythe.
