School Clubs

Extra-curricular Activities

Each year, a programme of extra-curricular activities is offered at Petersfield. This is an area we are always looking to develop further but examples of the clubs we have offered include Mathletics, Film club, Cooking club, Craft club, French club, Gardening club and Science club. Members of staff, parents or friends of the school take these classes and those children eligible are informed about the club. We also use good quality independent franchises to provide clubs. Whilst children are able to join in on an adhoc basis for many of the lunchtime clubs, information is sent home to parents at least termly regarding the lunchtime and after school clubs on offer.

We are part of the local sports partnership and Mrs Peachey continues to organise competitions and interschool events.

Bikeability (cycle safety) is offered to our older year groups.

We are delighted to welcome visitors into school and work with organisations and individuals such as National Trust volunteers.

We are proud to welcome visitors to our assemblies including local residents, our piano player and the GenR8 team.

Through out the year, our themed days focus on particular aspects such as E-safety, fundraising, Black History and drama.

School Visits

School visits include visitors who bring resources and workshops into school for the day and visits to local and more distant locations. All our activities are linked to our school curriculum. The children are given the opportunity to take part in many school visits, both local and further.

The Kingswood residential visit to Norfolk is the highlight of our Year 5 and 6 pupils' year. The opportunities for team building, social, emotional and curricular learning on this visit are huge.
