Belong, Believe, Achieve
We believe that children benefit from the provision of wide -ranging, varied learning opportunities, both in and out of the classroom. Therefore, we aim to provide children with enjoyable, rewarding and challenging experiences which stimulate their interests and help to forge a lifelong positive attitude to their learning.
The children have the opportunity to participate in various extra-curricular activities. These include sports such as football, netball, and also homework and choir club some children are learning how to play a range of musical instruments and are members of our School Council.
At present we run After School Clubs for Reception - Year Six
Many clubs are disbanded during the second half of the Autumn Term to allow for additional performance rehearsals.
Three children each week have the opportunity to make a flower arrangement for display during the week.
Art Club. A different theme is on offer each half term: sketching, sewing, collage, painting, sculpture and outdoor art.
There are ten places available for each class. (Children attending the After, After School Club are automatically allocated a place).
Please collect children from the school office door.

Thursdays are reserved for choir practices when required. During the Autumn Term the time may be allocated for rehearsals.
Key Stage 2 Choir (3.15pm-4.15pm)
We have an excellent Key Stage 2 choir, often over 30, this does mean that sometimes we need to choose a smaller number to take. Over the last year the choir has been invited to sing at several events. The choir sang during the Morning Service in September and at the church Carol Service.
In February we sang in the National Festival hoping to get through to the next round in Birmingham. We were invited to sing in the fringe festival of National Music for Youth in Birmingham. Next year we plan on entering several music festivals again. We shall be singing in the Rochdale Festival of Youth Music, Dance and Drama. This will be late February. We hope to be selected to perform in the Regional Heats of the National Festival of Youth Music in March.
We have registered to take 45 children to sing at the Peace Proms again in Liverpool on 27th January 2017. Last year this was a new event for us. All those involved really enjoyed the day and asked to take part again.
