Art/Craft and Drama
This is run in Shinewater Community Centre from 6pm-7pm and is for Year 6 children only. There are various activities from pool, PS2, Giant Jenga, Graffiti wall, tournaments and competitions. There is a tuck shop available for penny sweets and drinks. The profit from this buys more tuck, trophies and equipment and is also used to subsidise a trip at the end of the year such as ten pin bowling.
. Each year the children register to join Crash Pad by filling in a form with personal information, parental contact details and which activities they would like to take part in. This form is then valid for the whole school year. Each half term children are selected to take part in one of their chosen activities for half a term. They then change to do something else the next half term. If they only choose one or two activities they may only do those for half a term and then not come next time. If they choose lots then they may get more than one activity per half term. Some activites are very popular like cooking and last year not all the children had the opportunity to take part as we have to limit numbers for safety reasons.
We try to run an activity group during the summer holidays subject to staffing and funding. These usually run for three mornings a week over three weeks. Each week has a different theme. Up to 20 children attended each day and we made lots of different things. Last year we took part in a pantomime with wheel chair users from Shinewater Court. We did two performances, one at Shinewater Court and one in the school. These were very successful and we hope to do further work with Shinewater Court in the future.
Providing your child is in school years 3-6 and goes to Shinewater Primary School, they may attend. There may be age and number restrictions on certain activities.
A register of staff and children is completed each session. Children can only attend once the registration form at the back of the registration booklet has been returned and you have been notified via the school that they have a place in one of the groups. You only need to fill in one form each year to register. All information is kept confidential.
. We promote equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice for all. We aim to meet all children′s requirements under our inclusion Policy and Health & Saftey. This policy ensures that we provide and maintain a safe play environment. Accidents are documented and parents informed of any incidents. There is a qualified first aider on the premises.
. We aim to create an environment that promotes positive behaviour. We have adopted the school rules as all children should be familiar with these. Staff and volunteers never use physical punishment or aggressive/abusive language. We have adopted a time out policy to manage behaviour issues. Parents/carers will be informed of persistent or significant poor behaviour. If bad behaviour persists then the child will not be allowed to attend further activities.
A strict Internet policy is adhered to and unsuitable web sites are blocked by the school as far as possible. An Internet agreement should be signed by all the children attending the club.
For further details and information about the activities please contact Flossie Hayllar, Children’s Activities Coordinator via the school or Shaftesbury Centre Office.
