School Clubs and Children's University
We try to offer lots of clubs outside normal lessons. these take place at lunchtime, after school and sometimes before school. The range varies from football to Computing Club, Christmas crafts to Little Voices, Musical Theatre to Judo.
Usually our clubs are free, but we do use some outside providers who charge for attendance. We try to keep these to a minimum.
Sefton’s Children's University
All of our clubs are linked to Sefton's Children's University. This accredits learning outside the classroom and pupils need to attend 30 hours of activities to graduate at the end of Year 2 at Edge Hill University. Pupils can also collect credits in their own Children's University Passport, which parents can purchase from the Infant School Office, so that they can gain credit for clubs outside school e.g swimming, Rainbows and Beavers. There are an increasing number of accredited places in our local area and these can be found on the Children's University website www.childrensuniversity.co.uk. Children can collect many credits in this way including visiting museums and art galleries, historical sites, the theatre and the zoo to name a few.
All children automatically take part in this scheme in school.
Credits that are collected in passports outside of school will be collected throughout the school year.
Final credits for Year 2 will be collected by the beginning of May in your child's final academic year.
Reception and Year 1 credits will be collected by the end of June.
