Here at Croft Community School we believe that After School clubs can have a
hugely positive effect on our children.
Mixing with existing friends in a new environment helps children learn to share and
appreciate each other’s talents and abilities.
Engaging with new friends and being in a productive environment helps strengthen
confidence and independence. When they all have something in common (a passion
for gymnastics, art, outdoor crafts), children have a head-start on forming new
friendships. Getting to know children outside their existing group encourages their
sense of independence.
Realising they’re good at something boosts a child’s enthusiasm and confidence in
the classroom. Even if an after-school activity is not directly related to classwork, it
can give children a renewed enthusiasm for a subject in more subtle ways.
Discovering that they have a talent for or just enjoy performing in a drama club, for
example, can do wonders for confidence in speaking up in class, or could inspire
their creative writing.
We are hoping to run after school clubs during Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
nights after the half term and are going to consult parents and carers about the sorts
of clubs their children would be interested in.
