In addition to the wrap-around care (from 7.30am - 5.30pm) provided by Premier Sport we usually offer a range of other extra curricular activities both within the school day (lunchtime/break time) and after school. Some of these activities may be impacted by the current situation (COVID 19) but it is our intention to run as many as we can and to re-establish others as soon as we are able.
We have a very successful key stage 2 (years 3-6) choir who have attended the Young Voices concerts for the last three years; they also sang with Derby Rock Choir at Christmas as part of a fund raising event for Rainbows Hospice held at Repton Church. We will keep you updated as to when we are able to safely resume choir activities. We also have various music lessons available from Midlands Music Company (see details below).
Forest Rangers is an after school club which provides fun and exciting activities in our Forest Schools area. The club is run by our qualified forest school's staff and usually gives children from years 1-6 a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors. Initially, from September 2020 we will be inviting a small number of children to Forest Rangers but we will keep you informed when we are able to open this up the larger groups.
At lunchtimes, children usually have the opportunity to enjoy our very popular knitting club run by one of our amazing team of volunteers. Members of the club make the wonderful Weston attachment bears for our new Reception starters. Children can also practise their times tables with Mr Stephens and make junk models with Mrs Gardiner. The junk model club was suggested by pupils. We will keep pupils informed as to which clubs are running and when they will take place.
Skipping is an activity enjoyed by lots of pupils and staff at Weston. We had an amazing workshop in school and it has been great to see the progress the children have made with their skills. In additions to skipping, staff also support children at break times with activities such as juggling, netball and football skills.
Children from Weston have enjoyed taking part in sporting competitions against other local schools including archery and dodgeball.
