Extended Services

Elms Bank offers a variety of activities that are additional to the school day. If you have any questions about our Extended Services you can contact the school and speak to Mark Foster or Yvonne Hall. The Extended Services at Elms Bank became a registered charity in 2011 and runs under the name of L8R@EB (Later at Elms Bank). It is the umbrella organisation for all our before and after school clubs, lunch time and school holiday activities. The aim is to have more pupils doing more things more often.

Breakfast Club

At Elms Bank we believe that eating breakfast is important as it gives pupils the best start to learning. Research shows that pupils who eat breakfast progress better than those who skip this meal. As a result of this research, Breakfast Club runs every school day from 8.45am to 9.15am and offers a variety of healthy and nutritious food to those pupils who have not had breakfast at home. There is a small charge for this (£2.50 a week). You can get more information about Breakfast Club by ringing the school.

Lunchtime Clubs

We offer a range of lunchtime clubs put on by staff for the enjoyment and engagement of pupils – attendance at lunchtime clubs is excellent and pupils gain wider skills such as team working and appropriate social interaction from them. We also have a member of staff who organises yard games and activities for those pupils who want to be outside at lunchtimes. Lunchtime clubs are added to and adapted throughout the year to include the interests of our pupils.

After School Clubs

At the beginning of the school year you will receive a booklet with information about the clubs that will be offered after school. We would ask you to discuss the activities with your child and encourage them to participate. Extra-curricular activities are a valuable way of pupils developing social skills and team work while learning new skills. There is a small charge for our clubs which allows us to keep the clubs going. If your child is interested in attending any of the clubs we will let you know the different ways in which you can pay. Information regarding the cost of clubs will be included in the After School Clubs booklet. Examples of After School Clubs are: Climbing, Trampolining, Art, Pamper, Youth Club, Football, iPad Club, Film, Basketball, Duke of Edinburgh scheme, and many more!

Other Extended Services

During school holidays L8R@EB run a variety of themed holiday camps. Activities include Play, Multi Sports, Arts and Crafts and run from 10.00am to 3.00pm for a small charge. Extended Services at Elms Bank are developing all the time and we are interested to hear about any ideas you may have for clubs and classes.
