Extra-curricular Activities

We offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities, which operate during lunch times and after school.

These clubs are run, on a voluntary basis, by a member of staff, or by our sports coach. During the year children will have access to : Basketball, Football, Cricket, Netball, Cross Country, Hockey, Athletics, Recorder, Choir, Art, Let’s Get Cooking, Homework and Film Club.

Some of these activities are seasonal and are restricted to certain age groups.

As part of their P.E. lessons, pupils in Years 4, 5 and 6 swim on Wednesday mornings on a rota basis at the Deben Pool, Woodbridge. This is an integral part of the curriculum and takes place in school teaching time. Pupils are expected to swim unless they have a certificate from the doctor. Girls should wear a one-piece swimsuit and boys should wear trunks not shorts. Goggles are not permitted unless on doctor’s orders.

Children have the chance to participate in a range of educational visits during the year. These visits are closely linked to the curriculum. These may be within walking distance, to investigate the local area or may involve a coach or car journey to a local place of interest. Details of these visits are sent to parents in advance.

Pupils in Years 5 and 6 are offered the chance to take part in a four or five day residential visit. In the Summer Term 2013 the visit was to a PGL Centre in Lincolnshire where the children participated in outdoor and adventurous activities. In June 2014 we will be visiting Aylmerton Field Study Centre near Norwich in Norfolk where the children still study wildlife and natural features e.g. coastal erosion. The trip in Summer 2015 will be again to the PGL centre in Lincolshire.
