Extra Curriculum

Extra-curricular activities

We provide a wealth of extra-curricular activities.

We have a regular programme of sporting activities including football, cricket, athletics, gymnastics, multi-sport, dodgeball, tri-golf, badminton, handball, basketball and orienteering.    Our Sports coach from Premier Sports runs the majority of the clubs for a fee of £1.50 per session but other providers are used such as David Campbell for Football and a Cricket Coach from Lancs CC.

We are keen to enter tournaments to let our children who show talent in these areas compete at borough level and where possible we try to link the clubs to times in the year when tournaments may be held.  Our own staff organise and run these teams and we have had lots of success in recent years.

We also offer a range of artisic clubs such as Craft club, Zumba, Cheerleading and a very active choir which performs at Young Voices, church events and other venues in our community.  Instrument tuition is available from the Schools Music Service and Rocksteady Music School.

Extra revision sessions for Y6 are held after school in the run up to SATs.

We are always on the lookout for other activities for our children to take part in so if you know of a club or activity group that we could host, please get in touch with the School Office.

See below for our latest list of clubs.  Each half term a list of clubs is sent out and bookings are made at these times (some external providers have their own systems for booking).

RockSteady!

Rock Steady Music School

 

In the film ‘School of Rock’, Jack Black teaches a group of school children to perform as a rock band! Here at Rock Seady Music School, we have developed a unique teaching methodology which teaches children to play songs they love in their own band, whilst building confidence, teamwork, resilience and listening skills. They get real gig experience too – performing in a concert at the end of each term.

  • Learn to play in a band

Learning an instrument should be fun. Your child can choose from the electric guitar, keyboard, drums or vocals and enjoy playing in a happy, supportive environment with their friends.

 
  • From first notes to favourite songs

The Rocksteady Primary Programme is for all children aged 4-11 and is proven to progress musicianship, confidence and teamwork skills with no prior experience necessary.

 
  • Lead by real musicians

Your child’s music teacher should also be their role model. Which is why all Rocksteady Band Leaders are carefully chosen, extensively trained musicians who know how to inspire a life-long love of playing music.

 
  • With regular live performances

Playing on stage is a huge confidence booster. With termly concerts at school assemblies, your child will be able to show off their progress to friends, teachers and parents with the rest of their band.

 
  • In school time

Lessons are 30 minutes long and take place in school time with all instruments provided, making it hassle-free for parents.

 
  • And happily affordable

Priced at just £31.25 per month, Rocksteady is one of the most hassle-free ways to learn an instrument on a rolling subscription that you can cancel at any time. It’s risk free too – cancel in the first month and you’ll get a full refund.

 

Rehearse At Home!

‘Rehearse at home’ is the exciting new Rocksteady distance learning programme available to all subscribers through the online learning portal. So whilst school lessons can’t take place, music can still be a regular part of your child’s week.

To start with there will be:

  • Weekly audio and video lessons at different levels to suit your child  across drums, keyboard, guitar and vocals
  • Guidance for parents, so that you can help your child get the best out of rehearsing at home
  • Lesson pathways for those with or without instruments so that nobody misses out
  • Bonus content including a range of fun, musical activities to suit all levels of learning.
