SPORTS AND ACTIVITY CLUBS

Clubs

Each academic year clubs are allocated from scratch to start in September (usually the 2nd or 3rd week back). The information on each club will be on the website. You will be sent a google form to complete at the end of the previous term which will give you the choices for your child's year group. Please fill in this form and submit it. Any choices submitted after the submission date won't be considered in the first allocation but you will get a space if one is available. If you are allocated a space on a club then you will keep this space for the year for most clubs.  Some clubs only run for a term (e.g. cricket) and you will be sent information at the relevant time in the year.  Do let us know if you no longer want your space as this can be given to another child.  

Any allocated club will be added to your SCOPAY account. If you have not paid for the club by the time of the first session it will be assumed that you do not want the space. Children in receipt of Pupil Premium receive one free club. 

Staff run clubs will run for 10 weeks each term (split over 2 half terms). External clubs will run the full set of sessions or provide a refund/make up a class for any that need to be cancelled.  Staff run clubs may not run every week if the member of staff is not available and we cannot cover the session. The £5 payment for staff run clubs is an administration fee. 

Clubs spaces are allocated blind each year, meaning if you had a space in a club last year you are no more or less likely to get one this year. We do our very best to ensure children are allocated at least one club but in the current situation we are unable to run as many as usual. There is no limit to the number of clubs your child can attend if there are spaces.

If your child would like to be added to a club part way through a year then do email as there may be a space or they can be added to the waiting list.
