Extracurricular Clubs & Activities
Booking open for the autumn term!
We are delighted to offer three new clubs for the autumn term: Technokids Lego Robotics for Years 1 - 6 on Mondays, JA Sports Invasion Games for Years 3 - 6 on Tuesdays and Bake with Rana, also for Years 3 - 6, on Fridays. Unfortunately, Spartans Basketball club will not be running next term – we hope to see them back in the spring.
At Fern Hill, we offer a wide range of extracurricular clubs for children in Years 1 through to 6. These run after school and over lunchtime during the school day.
After School & Lunchtime Clubs for the Autumn Term 2022
Please see the attachment below for a downloadable copy of this schedule.
Clubs are available to children in Year 1 – 6 only.
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday clubs run for 12 weeks. Thursday and Friday clubs run for 11 weeks due to the two INSET days on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st October. Busy Lizzy Pottery, Bake with Rana, Spanish and French run for 10 weeks. All clubs start the week of Monday 12th September, except Bake with Rana which starts on Friday 23rd September.
The week of Monday 12th December will be catch-up week when any cancelled sessions will be made up. Please refer to this link for further information on the weeks that clubs run: Dates for Extracurricular Clubs.
All after school clubs run from 3:30 – 4:30 pm, except Bake with Rana which runs until 4:45 pm.
Clubs marked as a ‘lunchtime club’ run during the school day. If your child is attending a lunchtime club, you must provide them with a packed lunch from home on that day.
Clubs marked ‘apply directly’ are run by external providers. Bookings for these clubs are made directly with the providers and not school. For further information and contact details for these clubs, follow this link: External Club Providers.
All other clubs listed are school-run and you should apply and pay through ParentPay. Once a club is fully subscribed, you will not be able to select it through ParentPay. If this is the case, and you would like your child to be placed on the club’s waiting list, please email email@example.com
When booking through ParentPay, you will be asked to provide the details of any allergies and medical or other needs your child may have. You must also provide an emergency contact name and telephone number. These details are passed to your child’s club leader, and you should tick the consent box to allow us to share the information you have given. Please note that it is the parent or legal guardian’s responsibility to ensure the information given is always up-to-date.
In the interests of fairness to all families, if a school-run club is oversubscribed, priority on the waiting list will be given to children who are not already attending another after school club at Fern Hill. We recommend that children attend a maximum of three clubs a week, including those run by external providers. Clubs will only run if minimum numbers are reached.
Your ParentPay payment receipt acts as confirmation of the club you have booked. Sessions are non-refundable.
Children must wear shin pads and long socks in order to participate in the football clubs. If they arrive for a session without this equipment, they will not be able to play.
For information regarding where to collect your child when their club ends, please follow this link: Club Collection Points. Any changes in collection arrangements for your child, e.g., if they are going to be collected by another adult, must be notified in advance to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If your child is in Year 6 and you would like them to travel home alone after their club, you MUST inform the school office in writing before their first club session. This is the case for both school-run clubs and clubs run by external providers.
