As part of the school’s Extended Services provision, some lunchtime activities and after-school clubs are offered. These change on a termly basis. The clubs might include: newspaper club, choir, bell ringing, cookery, football, multi skills, science, art, maths, film, drama, bhangra dancing and many more. Details of all after-school clubs are published via letters home to the relevant classes at the beginning of each term and then children are allocated their places on a first-come-first-served basis with a waiting list when clubs become oversubscribed. All clubs are linked to Children’s University, which we are part of.
The underlying principle of the Children’s University is to ensure that children, between the ages of 7 – 14 years, can choose to take part in ‘quality’ out of school hours learning. Providers of out of school hours learning can undergo Children’s University ‘validation’ which guarantees the quality of the activities they make available. All clubs for children at KS2 age at Salisbury Primary School are validated through Children’s University.
The Children’s University Wolverhampton acts as a broker, validating activities which build up towards certificates at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels. To achieve these you must bank up hours completed in clubs.
Activities may be programmes of learning based in schools or events hosted in the community. When the children have gained sufficient hours to reach a certificate level they are invited, with family members, to take part in a graduation ceremony at Wolverhampton University.
Magic Breakfast is a charity registered in England (no. 1102510) and Scotland (no. SC048202) ensuring that no child is too hungry to learn through the provision of healthy breakfast food and expert support to schools. A hungry child cannot concentrate so will miss out on half a day of lessons, every day, if not given anything to eat.
Over half a million children in the UK arrive at school each day too hungry to learn. Salisbury Primary School have teamed up with the people at Magic Breakfast, to ensure that all our children start the day with a nutritious breakfast.
