After School Clubs

We offer three different types of clubs at Pearson Primary School that closely align with our core values and key curriculum drivers.

Tier 1 – Clubs for excellence

These clubs are a commitment to practice; and they provide weekly expert tuition so that children can excel in a range of areas, for example through sport and music.

Tier 2 – Clubs for development

These clubs are designed to enhance children’s opportunities for personal development within a less formal learning environment. Through a range of activities, these clubs focus on language development or social and emotional development, often utilising the principles of programmes used in the school.

Tier 3 – Clubs for experience

These clubs change and rotate more rapidly term by term and aim to provide children with opportunities to try activities that they may not have the chance to do in their personal lives. This broadens their life experiences and allows for adults to spot hidden talents so that children’s potential can be identified, nurtured and, where necessary, further opportunities signposted.

We make every effort to signpost children to clubs that we believe will benefit them and their development.

At Pearson we value providing wider opportunities for the children and are constantly reviewing the after-school offer that we provide.

Some clubs go on to form part of the legacy of the school, for example, our strong history of outstanding footballers. Others are more like a pick and mix, giving children opportunities to try their hand at something new and broaden their horizons.

Our clubs this term all finish at 4.15pm, except Martial Arts and Yr 4 to 6 football which both finish at 4.30pm.

I have full faith in Mrs Clarkson and her wonderful team. They have bent over backwards over the past year to make sure my daughter has an education and I know they will continue to do so. They are amazing and I am so great full for their support for my child throughout the lockdowns. They have exceeded my expectations as they always go the extra mile.

I have had a lovely afternoon hearing the Year 1 children read so thank you. I was so impressed with the calmness and maturity of the children.

I would like to express my gratitude to the extent the school supports the festival of Eid Ul Adha. Not only by allowing the children a day to celebrate with their families but also by celebrating these events in the school as well.

Pearson Primary School has gone above and beyond the realms of every day teaching and learning in this challenging year. Thank you to the wonderful staff for all they do, both seen and unseen. Our child is happy, inspired, challenged, supported and making progress – what more could we ask for?
