At Hurst Knoll St. James’ we believe that school clubs play an important role in children’s development because they provide them with opportunities to undertake activities that they might not have access to. They also develop the children’s social and physical development progressing to team achievements therefore inspiring children to have higher aspirations.
We are therefore delighted to offer children a range of clubs which take place after school. All clubs take place on a Wednesday afternoon and finish at 4pm. Children are collected from the school playground at the end of their session. At the current time, the clubs we have available to children are:
Max. number of places
Coding / computer club
1 and 2
3 and 4
Mrs. Burke and Mrs. Shaw
3, 4, 5 and 6
5 and 6
Tameside Active Coach
Additionally, we believe that sports competitions are essential for children’s development as they help them to grow and learn through the essential sporting values:
During lunchtime we encourage the children to remain active. We provide the children in Upper Key Stage 2 with the training and leadership skills to be ’Young leaders’ in either being part of our 'Playmaker' leadership team working with Reception and Key Stage 1 or in our Change 4 life club team working with Year 2/3. This enables the children to develop their team building skills and work with younger children in a responsible role and encourage the school’s ethos in keeping active.
