Clavering Primary School

  1. Extra-curricular


'Pupils receive a range of enrichment activities, which supplement an effective curriculum.' (Ofsted)

'Parents and carers are overwhelmingly supportive of the school. They greatly appreciate the approachability of staff and value the many and varied activities available for their children.' (Ofsted)

Dear parents, carers, children and other interested parties,

In addition to our statutory curriculum, we offer a range of extra-curricular opportunities and programmes that enable our pupils to be active citizens, compete, work effectively with others, take on roles of responsibility and develop their leadership skills. Extra-curricular clubs include clubs linked to sport, clubs linked to The Arts and our ever-popular gardening club.

Throughout the school, there are excellent opportunities for pupils to engage in a range of additional activities and both our pupils and their families appreciate the opportunities to go on school visits and participate in the school's progressively challenging residentials in Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6. 

As part of our work as an Eco-School Green Flag school, we provide lots of opportunities throughout the school to be active conservationists which includes our nationally-recognised John Muir Award Programme in Year 6.

Through the multi-award-winning Clavering Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA) Programme, all pupils have the opportunity to be physically active on a daily basis and compete in intra-school competitions and inter-school competitions as well as participate in a range of extra-curricular PESSPA clubs and activities.

We also endeavour to give our pupils inspirational and memorable opportunities to watch live theatre and live sport.

We greatly value the importance of our extra-curricular opportunities and are grateful for the ongoing support of parents, carers and governors in delivering a range of exceptional experiences for our pupils.

Best wishes,

Mr N. C. McAvoy
