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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We felt that it would be helpful to add some Frequently Asked Questions to help parents/carers and to reduce the number of the same queries regarding clubs coming into the school office.

1.       Clubs do not run on the first or last week of term.
2.       Please review the clubs list for the latest information regarding clubs. Contact details of all club providers are on the clubs list, please contact the club provider directly. If you are enquiring about an internal club please contact the school office.
3.       Home Learning Club is by invitation only – you will have received a letter if your child has been invited to it.
4.       Club providers manage their own registers, which are then shared with the school. Parents don’t need to advise the school about clubs that their child is attending as we will already be aware via the registers.
5.       If your child is attending Energy Kidz after a club, please inform Energy Kidz directly of this.
6.       Before-school clubs drop-off is at the main blue gates to the club provider who will be waiting there. Please don’t be late as the clubs start promptly.
