We provide a wide variety for extracurricular clubs at Werrington Primary School which are led by members of staff. A selection of clubs will be open to a number of year groups; others will be for particular year groups at particular times. A variety of our clubs run on a rotational basis throughout the year, as the year progresses please keep your eye out for further information.
We also are able to offer a wide variety of additional sporting activities that are organised and run by outside providers and there is a charge for each session or half term. All monies for these sessions MUST be given to the coaches at the sessions and not be sent into the school office. Additional information is distributed by the Coaches to pupils in the appropriate year groups at the beginning of each half term. Please contact the school office if you require more information.
We expect pupils who attend any club to be well behaved and to adhere to any safety advice or club rules. We also ask that parents collect their children promptly at the end of each after school club and that parents do not park their cars in our disabled parking spaces when collecting pupils unless they have a valid blue badge.
