Before And After School Clubs

We run a variety of after school clubs for our children and a breakfast club that runs every morning from 7.45am - 8.45am.

Many of our after school clubs are run by outside providers and there is a limited number of spaces available in each. For more information on availability, prices and dates, please contact the club direct or pop into the School Office.

Because we need to keep the children who stay after school for our various clubs safe and secure, we will be locking the playground gates at 4pm.  We would appreciate your help in vacating the playground before this time and collecting your children at the end of their after school club from the main school entrance near the office.  Thank you.


Breakfast Club

Our Breakfast club is a wonderfully warm and relaxed way to start the day.  It's a chance for children to play, chat and have breakfast together.  Children are able to choose from bagels, croissants and toast with honey or butter. There's also juice, fruit, yoghurt and a variety of cereals.  There are puzzles and drawing, Lego and paper airplane making as well as games to play and other arts and crafts. 

Breakfast club runs every morning from 7.45am - 8.45am, Monday to Friday.  Each session costs £8 and you can book in advance with this link -  St James Primary Breakfast Club.

More than just kicking and scoring, Premier football sessions are designed so that each child will leave having improved a transferable skill.  For younger children, they use football as a fun way to build co-ordination, agility and ball control, without the worries of a competitive game. Plus, every child scores a goal!  For older children, they help them build on their skills and techniques at their own pace through a wide range of activities and exercises. Their coaches also build on transferable skills and knowledge for them to take into any other sport they enjoy. 



This is a school run club.  Led by Mrs Muggleston, children learn about plants and insects and take part a range of activities such as planting bulbs and seeds, creating insect houses and bird feeders and painting signs and wooden planters in our school playgrounds.
