HALF TERM Sitwell Junior School will close at 3.10pm on Thursday 22nd October for half term. We will reopen on Monday 2nd November. If you need to contact the school during this time, please do so via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. All the staff hope you have a well earned break.
At Sitwell Junior School, we pride ourselves on the rich curriculum we provide for our children so that they have the opportunity to develop a wide range of interests and talents. An important part of this is provided through our Breakfast and after school clubs. Following an audit of clubs, we are pleased to inform you that an even wider range of clubs will be on offer from September, where many will be led by staff within school, ensuring that safeguarding remains our number one priority.
Please find listed below the extra curriculum opportunities on offer from January 2020 for the Spring Term. All clubs will commence week beginning Monday, 6th January.
This will run 5 days a week between 7.40am and 8.40am. Breakfast club is managed by Mr Cassell, Miss Bradbury, Miss Staveley and Mrs Fossey. We offer a range of sports and craft activities. Breakfast will also be available for all children attending. The cost per day will be £3.00. This covers staffing, materials and breakfast. Please note: there will be no adult supervision before the start time of 7.40am and, therefore, children should not arrive before this time.
All clubs will run from 3pm to 4pm. The cost of all clubs will be £2.50 per session, apart from one club per evening, which will be free of charge. This covers the cost of staffing and resources. If a club must be cancelled, we will endeavour to let you know as soon as possible or will reallocate your child to another club for that session. Please note: we do not run after school clubs in the last week of the Summer Term.
