Please note that our 'Active' After School Clubs sessions will, weather permitting, take place mostly outside. All in attendance are asked to dress accordingly e.g. have a coat on rainy days. Please wear normal full school uniform in on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and bring a pair of runners for the activities. On Wednesdays children will be in their PE Uniform as normal.

Each session will cost £2.00 and this is to be paid up front to ensure a place; sessions in this block will run for 7-8 weeks this term. In order to book your child’s place, please return the consent slip sent out by the school along with £12, to your child’s teacher ASAP (any cheques for Healthy Kidz Clubs are to be made payable to Healthy Kidz). Places are limited and in the event of over-subscription, names will be pulled from a hat.

Please note that in order to facilitate parents of P1-P3 children who are working and wish to only do one lift at 4pm if they pay an extra £1 in addition to their normal fee they will be able to stay to 4pm and be allowed to participate in the 3pm-4pm session.

(Please note that at the 3.00-4.00pm Clubs; for Health and Safety Reason and due to both older children being present and the type of activities used at the later session to suit the P4-P7 Age Group the younger children may just be supervised from time to time and therefore may not able to take part in all of the activities. Please ensure that if this applies to your child that they stay within the designated supervision area shown to them by the coach)
