We offer sports and skills clubs provided by specialist external providers, and members of our staff team, plus a "Wrap Around" care club at Ark Byron. See below an overview of how after-school clubs work at Ark Byron and a snapshot of all club offerings with their key details. Children from low income families/those receiving benefits who are entitled to Pupil Premium will receive subsidy for the costs (currently one free club per term).
Allocation of places
We send out a list of after school clubs with details before the end of each term and you have the opportunity to request clubs, ranking them in terms of preference. We will inform you of the club/clubs your child has been allocated and then you can contact the provider for payment/with queries.
Children who receive Pupil Premium funding will have the subscription for one club paid for by the school, subsequent clubs will need to be paid for by parents.
Please note recurrent non-attendance may result in your child losing their place so it is important that parents think carefully before signing their child up for a club. If a child's behaviour in a club does not meet the school's high expectations for pupil behaviour, and disrupts other club members, they will lose their place in that club and the cost may not be refunded.
See below the pricing for each individual club. We endeavour to keep costs as reasonable as possible so that all children have the opportunity to enjoy at least one enrichment offering.
NB Clubs will break during the half-term holidays and do not take place on staff training days.
Any questions about clubs e.g. "What do children need to wear/bring/" etc should be addressed directly to the club provider. The links below will take you straight to the provider's email address and further contact details can be found on our school website.
*Children will be picked up from the main gates in the playground. Club providers will confirm pick up location with parents.
All children can be given a snack to eat at the start of their club.
