After School Clubs
From time to time students may have the opportunity to participate in educational or recreational activities before and after school.
Where attendance is optional we will not notify parents of activities which take place between 8.00 a.m. and 8.50 a.m. or between 2.30 p.m. and 4.30 p.m. Students will be expected to let their parents know in these cases. A register of attendance will be taken so that we will know who is on the school site. Where learning support is organised on a ‘drop in’ basis at these times, students will be required to sign in and out.
Parents will be notified in advance, and their consent sought: if the activity is compulsory, if it finishes after 4.30 or starts before 8.00, if it involves payment or activities which are not normally encountered in lessons. (Students participating in school sports fixtures are excluded from this provision and on some occasions may leave the care of school staff after 4.30.)
In all cases we expect parents to make the necessary arrangement for the safe return home of students following after school activities.
Students may choose to stay in the Public Library on the school site at the end of the school day. It is a public facility and they will not be under the supervision of school staff, although we do liaise with colleagues in the Library to ensure that students use it appropriately. We do not keep a record of students using the Library. The Library is open to the public during the times below;
