After School Clubs
At Highfield Community Primary School, we set ourselves the ambitious target a few years ago to engage every child in Key Stage 2 in an after school club. We have worked with the children to help us to achieve this, discussing with them which clubs they would like to attend, what prevents them from attending clubs and what can we do to support them in this. I am delighted to report that this has been achieved. Every pupil in Key Stage 2 attended a club at some stage during the academic year. This is in part down to the range of sporting clubs that have been offered to the children and also through the running of the intra-leagues at a break and lunchtime.
The clubs that we have currently offered to pupils over the past academic year are:
Of course the challenge will not stop there, our target for this academic year is to achieve this with all pupils in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. More details of how we are getting on will follow later in the term. We have made an excellent start though with all children in Key Stage 1 signing up to take part in Mr Irving's Intra league and 55 children out of 58 joining in from Key Stage 2!!!
We are continuing our rugby coaching this term with Key Stage 2. Tom Capper of Newcastle Thunder has become almost our resident coach. The clubs allows children to develop their rugby skills, play small games and of course have some fun!!!
