Spring Clubs 2023
In order to book your child on to one of the clubs being offered during the Spring Term, please complete the relevant Microsoft Form (links below). You will need to complete a separate form for each club you would like your child to attend. Spaces at these clubs are limited, so please book early. Clubs can be booked using the links below until 3pm on Tuesday 6th December.
When attending clubs, children will be available to be collected at 4:15 at the front of the school. On a day when your child is attending a club they should wear their school uniform and bring their PE kit, or other appropriate sports clothes for the activity they are taking part in, to school that day. The exception to this is the Year 5 netball club taking place on a Wednesday lunchtime, where children may wear PE kit all day.
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.
ALL school run Clubs will begin on week commencing Monday 16th January 2023 and will finish during the week commencing Monday 20th March 2023.
All clubs are organised to offer an opportunity for children to learn about and improve within the sport or subject area being coached or taught. 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 or subject area being coached or taught, or their behaviour stops others from enjoying the club, they will lose their position and it will be offered to another child.
Other clubs being run by external providers are responsible for organising their own admin, which we support by passing on information where we can. If you have any questions about an external club please contact them direct. Please note the dates and times external clubs are run may differ from clubs offered by staff at Heathlands. If you need to contact any of the external club providers who come into Heathlands please find their details below.

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 children in KS2, especially those in Year 5 and 6, we would anticipate the child telling the teacher running the club why they are not attending. With younger children we understand that parents would do this and ask that you email the school office. 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 permission. You are able to do this on the Microsoft form if your child is attending a Year 5/6 club (we would not anticipate children in Year 1, 2, 3 or 4 walking home on their own). The adult(s) running the club will wait with your child to be collected after the club has finished and we would 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).
