At Colmers Farm, we believe that extra-curricular activities are vital for developing our pupils academically, socially and emotionally. Many of these activities also develop our pupils' levels of fitness and their feeling of emotional wellbeing.
To help us select which extra-curricular activities we offer, we utilise pupil voice by sending out letters to our pupils with options which are then voted on. This links with our one of our British Values - democracy.
Currently, we are offering the following extra curricular activities at Colmers Farm Primary School.

All extra-curricular activities finish at 4:30 (unless otherwise stated).
When new extra-curricular activities are announced, via letters home, it is important that these letters are completed and returned to school as soon as possible. If you were unsuccessful in your initial application or would like a space at one of these activities after places have been allocated, please contact the school office and they can add your child's name onto the waiting list.
Attendance at these extra-curricular activities is important, particularly due to the fact that demand for these is always high. If therefore a child is absent from a activity for two consecutive weeks, without a valid reason, they will lose their place at this activity and it will be reallocated to another child.
Please note that all children from Year 1 upwards (including Year 6s who may usually walk home alone) must be collected from club by somebody who is at least 16 years old. Any children in reception attending clubs must be collected by somebody aged 18 years or older.
