Extra Curricular Activities

At Joy Lane Primary School an extensive programme of extra- curricular activities is offered every two terms, therefore a brand new timetable goes out each September, January and April during the academic year. We try to ensure that every child who wishes to attend a club is able to and endeavour to do our utmost to accommodate this. However, there may be the odd occasion where a club exceeds the appropriate adult/child ratio so we may have to limit the number in each club and would therefore advise you accordingly.

All clubs will start straight after school at 3:15pm.  Children follow usual ‘end of the day’ routines and meet the ‘Club Leader’ at a designated pick up point. 

All pupils should be collected from the School office at the finish time of 4.15pm.  If a club finishes at a different time you would be advised accordingly. 

Where possible, clubs are not cancelled; they will go ahead regardless of the weather. The office will send out club reminders and notifications.  Please contact the office for enquiries.

Safety and Security

A register is taken at the beginning of each club and every child ‘checks out’ with the Club leader before departing. If a child signs up for a club we ask that they commit to it and if for any reason they withdraw we would appreciate written confirmation of this please. If a child is unable to attend on any occasion we ask you inform the School office or Club Leader as soon as possible.
