Extra Curricular Activities

At The Shrubbery School, we offer a wide range of organised extra-curricular activities, clubs and lessons to help our pupils from age 3-11 develop as individuals. We encourage every pupil to try and a range of these, which can lead on to life-long hobbies and passions.

The aims of the extra-curricular activities programme is to extend and enrich the work being done during curriculum PE and to provide some pupils with opportunities to enable them to develop the skills they need to access curriculum PE. The programme should also inform any assessment of pupils. The programme will reinforce the importance of keeping physically active in order to lead a healthy lifestyle. An extra-curricular activities programme is provided both before and after school, and at lunchtime allowing all children to access the programmes on offer. All out of school learning opportunities are developed in consultation with pupils with the utilisation of pupil voice and the programme will:

  • Provide a balance of competitive and non-competitive activities through intra and inter school events.
  • Provide specific movement / general physical activity clubs / which develop fitness and fundamental movement skills (FMS) – (Change 4 Life Clubs)

To ensure the quality and sustainability of the extra-curricular activities programme, the school will:

  • Employ a range of auxiliary qualified and experienced coaching staff and implement quality assurance through the link teacher/subject leader involved in the SSP programme.
  • Ensure that the subject leader takes responsibility for forging strong local community club links (club coaches visit school / pupils attend club taster days / clubs advertised on notice-board)
  • Inform pupils and parents of the range of extra-curricular activities available.
