At Heaton St Barnabas’ we have increased our provision of extra-curricular activities and clubs this year. The majority of these are at lunchtimes to give all children the opportunity to attend and some are provided after school.
A member of the Senior Leadership Team is on duty on the playground at lunchtime each day. We also ensure that a sporting activity is run by an adult each day that all children are able to participate in.
In addition, there is a wide-range of lunchtime activities run indoors. Many of these have been provided in response to the children’s ideas.
This is what our children say they like about lunchtimes:
“Golden Table” – Y1
“Teachers playing games outside.” – Y2
