'Funstorm' (After School Club) operates on Mon/Tues/Thurs from 3.15-5.30pm.

MONDAYS: CREATIVE ARTS CLUB

Monday nights are our Creative Arts Club. This will remain, as recently, an offer of music and movement sessions with our tutor Richard as funded by the Surrey Arts Council. Under our current covid-19 guidelines, these will be delivered remotely with Richard appearing on one of our interactive whiteboards. Rob and Sonia will then assist Richard in leading the sessions with school instruments. We will also be doing some Christmas themed activities in December.

TUESDAYS: CHILLED TUESDAYS CLUB

Tuesday nights used to be Kids’ Choice Club. As we are only booking half a term of sessions split across the two departments, allowing the standard first session for each department to make their choices would result in only two or three actual choices to be enjoyed. As such we have taken the decision to rebrand the Tuesday nights to ‘Chilled Tuesdays’ for the time being, and still offer the kind of activities that students have enjoyed on these nights before. We hope to then bring back the ‘kids’ choice’ element to club in some form in the future. Activities are all designed to bring a relaxed social/youth club feel to Funstorm and include themed activities around Fireworks Night and Christmas as well as other activities.

THURSDAYS: ACTIVE CLUB

Thursdays are designed to get your child burning off energy with the weekend looming. Students will access a range of sports and games as well as enjoying time on the school trampoline for some rebound therapy.

  

Cost & Accessibility

Funstorm sessions cost £12. Some students may be entitled to free sessions through pupil premium funding (students in years R - 11 only). 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 spaces at Funstorm. While we are still facing ongoing challenges with our level of funding it is currently the case that we can only offer a maximum of one session per week to any student, with some students getting less than this for some very over-demanded nights. 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 or another student is poorly then we can offer the space out to someone else.
