We provide a wide variety of clubs and activities for the children before school, at lunchtime and after school and they are chosen based on interest expressed by the children and parents. The majority of our clubs run free of charge so that all of the children can participate if they wish. Clubs are usually offered to children in blocks of six weeks unless otherwise stated. Where there are more applications then spaces we run a waiting list for most clubs and take these as a priority for the next block of sessions. We ensure a good range of fitness and sport related clubs are run to help support healthy lifestyles. Some clubs give children the opportunity to represent the school such as at Music and Dance festivals and at sporting competitions. Some clubs are by invitation to meet specific needs or abilities.
Daily Breakfast Club and After School Club
Our ‘Munchies’ Breakfast Club, run by Mrs Soane and her 'Breakfast Team', operates daily from 7.45am from the school hall. There is a small charge of £3.00 daily and includes a varied breakfast menu offering the children as much as they want to eat as well as supervision from 7.45am until the children are escorted to their classrooms for the start of the school day. There is no need to book, just pay in cash on the day.
Our Daily Extended After School Club, held in our Nursery building, operates daily from 3.10pm to 6.00pm. Children in Hamstel School and children in Hamstel Nursery are able to attend our After School Club. Sessions for the club must be booked and paid for in advance using ParentMail. After School Club is only available for families where the school office has received a signed copy of the Terms and Conditions.
