The number of children attending clubs has increased compared to the previous year. The Club attendance review highlighted a number of children who did not attend any clubs. When those children where asked why, the main reason for their lack of attendance were other clubs and sports activities provided outside of the school, such as swimming lessons.


We will be attending the SEND Red Tennis competition in June with children who are reluctant to take part in sports.


A questionnaire for pupils highlighted a number of clubs the children would like to have on offer. These will begin in Summer Term, and continue into the next academic year.
