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.
Maths and Reading Boosters are during the Spring Term 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.
