CLUBS

At Orleans Primary we have worked hard to build up a wide variety of clubs for our pupils. These clubs either take place before school, at lunchtime or after school dependent upon the particular club and the space available at our school. The vast majority of our clubs are run by external providers, many of whom have worked with us over a period of several years. The clubs are popular and well-attended, we know that our pupils enjoy attending them. 
 
Our aim for the clubs which run at Orleans is to give our pupils opportunities to try new activities which may spark a lifelong love of a particular skill which they may which to continue to pursue outside of school. In addition to this joining a club is a superb way of pupils making new friends within either their class or another year group.
