We are pleased to see so many children taking an interest in extra-curricular clubs at Oakfield. There are a number of clubs led by teachers which change each term. Alongside these are clubs led by outside providers to increase the range that we can offer. The programme for Clubs is published on the school website each term.
With large numbers of pupils, there are limited spaces in our teacher led clubs and we are very grateful to staff who give freely of their time in order to lead these. The vast majority of clubs are in fact for Key Stage 2 pupils and, in addition to this, we train for sporting events too so teachers are very busy.
The Club sign up list is circulated, starting with Year 6 in Key Stage 2 and Year 2 in Key Stage 1 when children have the opportunity to have their name added for a club of their choice. The children are then selected from each class to make it fair. Children are notified by letter if they are successful in being selected for a club, sent out by Mrs Bower who manages this in the school office. At this stage, the children will be told that they have a letter to take home and that those without a letter were not successful. Children's names are then added to the waiting list for the club and notified if a place becomes available.
We hope that children will join in activities which they enjoy but also try something new during their time at Oakfield Primary.
Please speak directly to Mrs Bower in the school office for further information.
