Extra-Curricular Activities and Extended Clubs
Two Mile Ash School offers a comprehensive extra-curricular programme for all pupils who wish to participate. Extra-curricular activities are after school from 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm.
Extra-curricular clubs vary from term to term, and timetables are given to parents at the beginning of each term giving full details of all clubs available including times and levels of supervision. Information is also provided on how to sign up for the club of your child’s choice via our online booking system.
A small charge of £10 per term is made for administrating extra-curricular clubs.
We also have an extensive sport and music programme, weekend and holiday trips and other activities are arranged during the school lunch break and after school. These include activities such as chess, choir, orchestra, craft, drama, art, computing, gardening, eco-schools and language clubs.
There is a charge for music lessons, trips and day visits (individual information will be provided).
Children can also sign up to our Extended Clubs Programme. Clubs this year ranged from golf at Abbey Hill Golf Club, special ops at Caldecotte, skiing at the Xscape and horse-riding at Loughton.
There are additional fees for these clubs and parents are responsible for getting their child to and from the club.
Dismissal After Clubs
At the end of each school based club (4:30 pm), the teacher will take the children onto the slope where they will wait for parental collection. May we remind you that prompt collection from clubs is expected. Children who are not collected on time will be placed in After School Care Club where a charge will be incurred. For clubs which are carried out by peripatetic teachers (i.e. music where payment has been made), children can be collected from the front Reception.
We provide a full range of educational visits and place a high importance on out of the classroom learning, particularly residential visits for which we have a visit available for every year group. Our residential programme will include a Year 3 overnight visit, Year 4 activity centre visit to Whitemoor Lakes, Staffordshire, Year 5 visit to the Isle of Wight, Year 6 visit to Belgium and our Year 5/6 Ski visit to the European Alps (see Year Group tabs on the website for more details regarding individual year group trips).
In addition, we run two camping residential visits as part of the extra provision for our children.
Parents are given full notification of all trips well in advance, but in the event of a parent not wishing their child to take part in a curriculum term time trip, arrangements will be made to accommodate their child in school.
Parents are asked to note that governors have made a bursary available to the Headteacher to assist parents who may wish their child to take part in certain visits, but who may be experiencing difficulties in making a financial contribution. Please inform the Headteacher if you require any assistance.
All visits conform to very precise safety procedures as detailed in the school’s comprehensive Educational Visits Policy, which is available upon request, for inspection by parents. Visits are reviewed and updated at the end of every academic year.
