Summer Term After School Clubs

Dear Parents and Carers,

Summer Term After School Clubs 

Please see below a list of the clubs available to your child  next term. You can book your child’s space on a club via the payment section on Parent Mail (all clubs are free so will be priced at £0).

All clubs will run for ten weeks, starting the week commencing 25th April  2022 and ending the week commencing 4th July 2022. Once all our clubs have been filled we will send out a second letter with further details regarding the club your child is taking part in.

MONDAY

  • This is a fun and high energy club for girls in years 3, 4, 5 and 6. 
  • The aim of this club is for the girls  to take  part in lots of different sports in a relaxed atmosphere. 

Year 4, 5 & 6 Girls Netball (4:30-5:30pm, collect from St Matthew’s)

  • Our evening netball club is a new project led by the PE team, with support from past pupils and local netball  players. The aim of our evening netball club is to give girls with a real interest or love of netball the opportunity to play in a more structured setting. 
  • The club will work towards playing competitive matches against other schools as well as being a hub that children can access even after leaving St Matthew’s. We view this as a long term project bringing netball to the Hightown community.
  • Please be aware, if you’re signing your child up for both girls multi sports club and netball club you will not need to collect them between clubs, just pick them up at 5:30pm from school.

Year 4, 5 &6 Dance – (5:00-6:00pm collect from High Town Sports and Arts Centre)

Our dance clubs with NGYT have been very well attended over the first half of the year and we are now able to move dance to more of a community based club. We have been lucky enough to gain some funding alongside Active Luton to put this Dance and Theatre club on this term with the aim, much like our basketball club, for this to become a club children can attend long after leaving St Matthew’s. 

Please be aware, if you’re signing your child up for both racquet sports and dance club you will not need to collect them between clubs, just pick them up at 6pm from Hightown Sports and Arts Centre  

Please note that children must be collected from clubs at the correct time and finish location by a responsible person age 16 or over. If your child is in year 5 or 6 and you would like them to walk home alone after club, you will have the opportunity to let us know in the follow up letter. 

All children must be collected from our evening clubs on Monday and Thursday,  regardless of their year group.  We always encourage parents/carers to come and watch the final fifteen minutes of our evening clubs and will be working with Total Wellbeing Luton to create opportunities for the adults whilst they are waiting! 

All our clubs are free of charge, however we do have a limited number of spaces per year group, these will be allocated on a first come first served basis and repeated missed clubs will result in your child’s space being given to another. 

If you have any questions please feel free to call the school office  or speak to Mr Chaplen on the front gate each morning. We look forward to seeing lots of children back at our sports clubs in the Summer term!
