Please take a look at this video to meet some of the students and staff who make our clubs so great!

We provide an extra-curricular programme which meets the needs and interests of the children.  Our after school clubs offer a breadth and depth of relevant activities and are especially geared towards the promotion of an active and healthy lifestyle.

 

Our current after-school programme incorporates clubs for dance, football, cooking, cycling, sensory play (for primary students) and walking.

 

All clubs run from 3.15 - 4pm including the first and last week of term.

 

We have previously organised a range of clubs including: boccia, art, drama and fitness. 

We are currently running the following clubs:

 

Monday:

 

Football

Here, pupils work on key football skills as well as play small matches with the group.

 

Dance

This club is a great way for our children to express themselves creatively through the medium of music whilst allowing them to gain access to exercise within a supported group setting.

 

Tuesday:

 

Cooking

Pupils will get the opportunity to suggest what they want to cook each week. Pupils are then supported with cooking these recipes. 

 

Wednesday:

 

Sensory/messy play

This after school club is aimed at primary pupils who may struggle with engagement or who just enjoy messy play. Staff arrange a variety of sensory/messy play activities including: water beads, water, sand and shaving foam. The club is generally focussed on activities that these pupils like to do during the school day and is personalised to the group of pupils that attend the club. 

 

Cycling

One of the key life skills Longcause aims to equip it's pupils with during their time with us is the ability to cycle independently.  Our cycling aims to help both novices and more competent cyclists develop their ability to ride a bike with confidence. 

 

Thursday:

 

Walking 

Pupils will be taken by staff for a walk within the local area. This supports pupils to become more independent whilst improving their road safety skills.

 

Participation

 

Our clubs are growing in popularity with our students and are well supported with a high level of staff involvement.
