Lunch time and after school clubs for KS1/KS2

Clubs are ran as weekly sessions over the school term, usually for around 10-12 sessions.    They run over lunch time or starting when the school finishes for 1 hr. Some schools choose to use pupil premium funds to support targeted children in the school. We can take up to 20 children per club.
