Portesbery School - a happy school where every one matters

After School Club (and Summer Club)
ASC logo

After School Club runs three nights a week under the following headings.

TUESDAYS: KIDS’ CHOICE CLUB

In order to keep offering the same array of activities as we were under the previous four headings, we are moving Kids’ Choice Club to Tuesday. Within the choices that the students will vote on for each week, we will be incorporating activities from sensory and relaxation club and creative arts, as well as activities such as walks in the woods, café trips and much more. We will meet in the first week to do a little cooking and make our choices. Non-verbal pupils will get symbols to vote and pupils not present on the first Tuesday will still get their say for the sessions they are attending.

 

WEDNESDAYS: COOKING CLUB

The theme for the new term at cooking club is going to be ‘Autumn & Winter Warmers’.  Students will get to use symbolled recipes and specialised equipment to create their dishes as independently as possible. At the end of each half term we invite parents, carers and siblings to join us to share a selection of our favourite dishes we have made. This term we’ll be cooking things such as Pumpkin Pancakes, Wild Mushroom Tarts and Leek & Mackerel Pasta Bake. 

 

THURSDAYS: SPLASH & ACTIVE CLUB

Thursdays are designed to get your children burning off as much energy as possible with the weekend looming. The group splits into primary and secondary age groups, who take it in turns to access the school hydrotherapy pool or to take part in active sessions such as rebound therapy, walks in our local woods and Big Games (bowling, floor darts, frisbee golf and more). Any child attending a swim night must bring from home all the necessary swim kit, pads and flotation aids they require. If we do not feel they have the necessary items then your child will be included into the ‘active’ session for that week.

  

Cost & Accessibility

All ASC sessions cost £10 (note that from January 2018 the price will increase to £12 per session). Some students may be entitled to free sessions. If you are unsure of your entitlement then please speak to Emma in the school office. Our staff are trained and experienced in managing challenging behaviour and supporting those with high medical and/or physical support needs. If you have any queries please contact Rob on the phone, through the home/school diary or via email (rob.broughton@portesbery.surrey.sch.uk).

Please be aware that due to rising student numbers and a general increase in demand from existing students, we are facing unprecedented levels of requests for ASC spaces. While we are still facing ongoing challenges with our level of funding it is unlikely that we will be able to allocate any students more than two sessions per week. We would still urge you to apply for as many spaces as you would be interested in as we are now running a waiting list for each session so that if a confirmed booking is cancelled then we can offer the space out to someone else.
