Below you will find School Clubs list for Spring 2020. Please note that this list also includes information relating to Independently run clubs. These MUST be booked direct with their Club Leaders and NOT through the School.
If your child has a place at a school club you will be informed to confirm this. If you receive no confirmation of their place at a club we regret it was already full and they will be added to the club waiting list.

Sports clubs are organised to offer an opportunity for children to learn about and improve within the sport being coached. All children that attend should have an interest in being there. The behaviour of children should reflect that interest and desire to learn. If children attending a club are not interested in participating in the sport being played, or their behaviour stops others from enjoying the club, they will lose their position and it will be offered to another child.
IMPORTANT HEALTH AND SAFETY NOTES Please read the following carefully before applying:
IN THE EVENT OF….
Due to circumstances beyond our control clubs may have to be cancelled from time to time and we appreciate your co-operation when this happens. We will send messages to parents via ParentMail and text messages to inform as many parents as possible. If you need to contact us, please contact the school as late as possible in the afternoon and you will be advised of the situation. If a club has to be cancelled and we are unable to contact you we will ensure your child is kept safely in school until you or a nominated person arrives to collect him or her.
ABSENCE FROM CLUBS
If your child will not be attending an after-school club session, please ensure the adult leading the club is aware of this absence. For KS1 children, send advance written notice (where possible) to the club leader, or leave a message with the school office staff. For KS2 children, the child should inform the club leader themselves as soon as possible. Once children have been allocated a place at a club it is anticipated that they attend every week unless they have a valid reason not to attend. If children are absent from clubs their position may be offered to another child on the waiting list.
SCHOOL POLICY ON COLLECTING CHILDREN AFTER CLUBS
Please stress this to your child - they should not walk home independently unless you have given your WRITTEN permission. Please tell your child to wait inside the school building to be collected after the club has finished and emphasise that on no account are they to accept lifts unless this has been arranged by you, the parents. Please could parents inform the school of any changes to their child’s pick-up arrangements.
EARRINGS and HAIRBANDS
Essex County Council safety regulations are also being enforced with regard to children and earrings in P.E. or games sessions. These state that NO earrings whatsoever may be worn for games and P.E., so children will have to remove their studs. Please would you send in a small named container to keep them in. The use of micropore tape is no longer permitted. If ears are newly pierced, you will need to provide a box of padded plasters for the six week healing period. It is recommended that if your child has their ears pierced this is done at the beginning of the summer holiday.
Long hair should be tied back using only soft hair bands or grips (i.e. no hard plastic items)
