At Vicar’s Green we provide a range of specialist clubs, throughout the year, in order to enrich and enhance our school curriculum. While some of these clubs are run my members of our staff, others are run by specialist coaches who have experience of working with children.
In order to achieve consistency and continuity ,all clubs are run on the same day at the same time each term. Letters are sent home well in advance for parents to sign up their children. While most clubs are free for all children, a few clubs that are run by specialist coaches may involve a small fee.
Academic - Spring and Summer terms
Maths and Reading Boosters are during the Spring and Summer Terms for children who would benefit from a little bit of additional support in these areas. These clubs are all run by qualified and highly experienced teachers.
Maths Skills Mornings are an opportunity for children to consolidate their previous learning in real life scenarios, and to develop their skills of reasoning and problem solving.

During Multi Skills, children participate in sessions which help develop balance, hand-eye coordination and stamina. This club is conducted by external qualified coaches.
The main aim of the Team Games club increases children's fitness and provides them with the opportunity to participate in exciting games which help to develop their ability to work as a team.
