After School Clubs - 

There are Sports After School Clubs, Monday - Thursday, for which the relevant instructor charges a fee.  The clubs are run privately & not by school.  Each After School Club runs from 3.30 - 4.30 p.m. and a letter is sent out for children to sign up to them, as and when it is their Year Group's timetabled turn. 

If you are in receipt of benefits and receive free school meals, you will not need to pay.  The after school club fees are paid for out of the Pupil Premium Grant Fund allocated to school.

Our Monday - Thursday After School Clubs are run by Joe Ratcliffe, a qualified sports coach.
