Extra Curricular Activities

 

At Highcliffe, we offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities and opportunities for all children.

Morning and Lunchtime Clubs

We run morning football clubs twice a week and lunch time clubs every day – football with the coaches outside, and volley ball and basketball inside. Choir and Times Tables Rockstars clubs also take place each week during lunch. We run a family Book and Breakfast each Friday.

After School Clubs

After school we run clubs five nights a week.

For Key Stage 1 we run a Book and a Biscuit club which encourages a love of stories and reading.  We also run a Busy Builders club to encourage budding young builders and engineers to practise their construction skills.

For Key Stage 2 children we run French, Maths, Hockey, Performing Arts, Cricket and Netball Clubs.

Educational Visits and Awareness Days

Educational day trips linked to curriculum content are taken throughout the year for every year group.  We have strong links with our local church and visit different places of worship to support the understanding of different faiths and cultures. The school also supports a wide range of charities across the year, as well as taking part in awareness days, to ensure that our children are fully inclusive of the differences represented in our school. They know that we are all different, but all equal and that we celebrate this.

Sporting Trips

The children have also had the opportunity to go on trips to football, ice hockey and basket ball matches at weekends, run by staff over the past year.

Residential Trips

We offer residential trips for children from Year 4 to Y6 to Whitby, Carlton Outdoor Centre and Edinburgh respectively.

Representing Highcliffe

The children have been invited regularly to represent Highcliffe in our choir and in sporting teams. Our performing arts children have taken part in a recent dance festival and have performed for our wider school community.

School Council work in the local community

Our school council are active members of the community, with regular litter picking sessions. Last year, they lined a nearby street with bird boxes.

Through our Eco Schools initiative, the children are being taught to appreciate and take responsibility for their local environment and a group of children enjoyed their bird watching session recently.
