School Clubs Information

  • Clubs Information

    Clubs Attendance:  If your child is in school for the day but is not attending the after school club that they are booked into please let Ms Charles at the office know.  You can go the window and speak to her, email her at admin@greendragon.hounslow.sch.uk  or give her a call on the school number.  For safe guarding reasons we must know if children are not attending clubs. 

    We hope that every child who wanted to attend a club has managed to book at least one.  We are very proud of the number of clubs that we offer to our children and that we have managed to keep them at such a low cost.  Our aim is that every child who wants to attend a club can and that our clubs extend and enhance children’s opportunities to develop new skills and to develop their confidence.  If you have any feedback or comments about clubs please let Ms. Buck know by emailing her at admin@greendragon.hounslow.sch.uk

    Please be aware that from September school clubs will cost £3 a week.  Judo, guitar and other external clubs will continue to be charged according to the providers’ rate.  

  • Behaviour before Clubs

    Before clubs start all the children go to the Junior Hall where they should eat their snack and get changed (if necessary). Children know that they must WALK in to the hall QUIETLY and then SIT and eat their snack and wait for their register to be called.

    Children who do not follow these health and safety rules will be served with a yellow card which is a first warning. If a second warning is needed within the same 1/2 term the child will be asked to miss club the following week. We really do not want this to happen so please remind your child about behaving sensibly and safely. Any snack not eaten by 3.30 will need to be packed up and taken home. Clubs start promptly at 3.30. Thank you for your support. 

    support their learning.

    Club kits and water bottles:  if your child attends an after school sports/dance club they must bring a separate kit to change into and a bottle of water from home.  The children cannot return to their classrooms after club and should not be wearing their PE kits home or bringing their school water bottles home.  Thank you

  • Clothing & Footwear

    Sports clubs usually run outdoors, in all weathers unless it is unsafe to do so.

    Children will need appropriate footwear such as trainers for sports clubs as well as clothes for doing sports outdoors.

    Children who attend clubs:  If your child attends a sports club (including Street Dance) they must have a change of clothes with them for this club.  Children must not use their PE kits.  This is because PE kits must stay in school all the time and the children wear their club clothes home with them.  If we build in time to get re-dressed in uniform after clubs then the children get less activity time.  Children must have suitable shoes to wear for sports.  Several children have been trying to take part in clubs in their school shoes and this is not safe. 

  • Snacks

    Club snacks:  As a school one of our aims is to ensure that children develop healthy life styles, this includes healthy eating habits.  Our rules for club snacks are a bottle of water or a carton of pure fruit juice and a piece of fruit or a cereal bar.    From Monday, club supervisors will not allow children to eat snacks unless they follow our healthy eating rules. 

    Please do not bring kit or snacks to the office during the day unless it is absolutely necessary.  Children should bring their things with them in the mornings.  Thank you.

    Children may bring a snack for after school clubs such as:

    • fruit juice
    • fruit
    • cereal bars
    • rice crackers

    Fizzy drinks, chocolate bars and packets of biscuits are not allowed.

     Hockey is one of the best cardiovascular games you can play.

    Since hockey is a team sport, children who play learn the value of working with others. They figure out how to rely on teammates and understand that cooperation is key to success. Play develops in seconds, and momentum can shift in the blink of an eye. A child who can learn how to operate in that sort of environment will improve his or her ability to make quick decisions and think on their feet. Concentration is also improved; being able to concentrate while playing will make it easier to concentrate while learning.

    What is coding? Coding is what makes it possible for us to create computer software, apps and websites. Your browser, your OS, the apps on your phone, and this website – they’re all made with code. Coding, in the simplest of terms, is telling a computer what you want it to do, which involves typing in step-by-step commands for the computer to follow.

    The benefits of learning coding at a young age are enormous and include the development of problem-solving skills, computational thinking, persistence, collaboration, and a deeper understanding of a range of mathematical concepts and language.

 

Booking a Club space

To book a place in a club you have to fill in a 'Clubs Booking Form'. These are usually sent home close to the end of each term so please check in your child's book bag.

As you can imagine spaces are very limited.

It is very important that completed forms are taken to The Front Office on the stated dates so that the Clubs Admin Staff can take your bookings. The dates can be found on the booking forms as well as our school diary. 

Please note that once a club is booked, we cannot offer a refund.

As confirmation, acknowledgements, with dates, will be sent home with the children.
