At St Paul's we believe extra-curricular activities play a very important role in the life of the pupil and the school. We therefore offer a variety of clubs for our children to join and enjoy both at lunchtimes and after school. In addition, many of our children also learn a musical instrument.
We also run a Buddies Breakfast club (See below for more details) each morning from 8.00 – 8.40am. This club enables parents and guardians to get off to work knowing their child is having fun and keeping healthy.
Once the children have joined a club they are expected to attend regularly. If they wish to leave a club, then a written note from a parent/carer must be handed to the teacher in charge. Some of the clubs only run at certain times of the year. Please see the teacher in charge for more details.
For the autumn term we will be kindly asking for a voluntary contribution of £5 per pupil, also payable via ScoPay under Trips and Events. If costs are not covered we may need to start a permanent charge for after school clubs in the spring term, rather than a contribution.
Below is a sample of the type of clubs. Please see the office for the latest clubs on offer.
Buddies (After School Club)
The club has a wide range of games, toys and activities suitable for all age groups. Facilities are also available for children to do homework if they wish. There is always plenty to do and the children enjoy each other's company. Both younger and older children integrate well. Children can be collected up to 5:30pm from its own entrance to the right of the main entrance.

"I really like coming here because it is like coming home."
