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.
We also offer at Joy Lane privately run activities and clubs such as Young Voices Choir, Karate Kai and Oyster Bay Swim School. These activities require a fee and further information can be found by contacting the people below;
