Granby Primary School

EXTENDED LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES HAVE NOW FINISHED FOR AUTUMN TERM 2018

 

Please find below our programme of Extended Learning Opportunities for the Spring Term 2019. It will run from January 14th to February 7th and February 25th to April 4th 2019. It is a 10 week programme.

 

Please only send your child to a club if they wish to participate in the activity. Children who are sent when they really don't want to attend, may spoil the activity for the children who do want to join in. If a child tells us that they do not wish to attend, we will ask parents to withdraw their child so that the place can be taken by someone on the waiting list who does wish to participate.
