Learning Together, Growing Stronger.

Extra-Curricular School Clubs

Extra-curricular activities boost young people's confidence to interact socially with others; extend their social networks; and provide them with new skills and abilities. Above all, they offer an important space to have fun and relax away from the pressures of school work.  At Alwoodley Primary School we offer a range of clubs throughout the academic year and make sure that these are aimed at a range of age groups. Some of these are delivered by our staff whilst others are delivered by specialist companies that we source carefully.  Information about these clubs will be emailed out as they are introduced throughout the year.  



Our extra curricular intent.

We have planned clubs with external partners to match the needs of our learners. In KS1, which includes children aged 5 to 7, the focus in on developing fundamental movement skills and basic coordination. At this stage, children are in the early stages of physical development, and the emphasis is on laying a foundation for more complex activities later on. The goal is to help children build fundamental motor skills and social skills (including developing Habits of Mind).

In KS2, which includes children aged 7-11, pupils have typically developed more advanced motor skills and coordination.  At this stage, there is often a transition towards more structured sports activities.  Children may be introduced to specific sports and games, learning the rules and strategies associated with each







At Alwoodley, we are lucky enough to have a number of dedicated staff who offer to run clubs, free of charge, in their own time.  These include: Geography Club, Choir, Drawing Club, Alwoodley Wombles and Spanish Club.  These do change over the year and run for a minimum of 7 weeks.  Prior to these starting, the office will send out an expression of interest form. Once these have been received, places will be allocated. A number of these places will be reserved for those pupils who are entitled to Pupil Premium funding.  It is important you commit to the duration of the club as these are very popular and places are limited.
