Please see the table below for the days, year groups, leaders, location and a short explanation of each one. All ELOs finish at 4.30pm and children should be collected from the door in the car park.
ELOs will, once again, be free for this term but you will need to book a place. This can be done through the Parentmail app or through pmx.parentmail.co.uk or you can follow the link on our website. Please go to Payments > Shop where you will be able to view any clubs available to you.
If you need any support using the online system, please call into school on a Wednesday morning or contact the office.
