Extra-curricular activities

We are particularly aware that each family has its own unique set of circumstances and through a range of additional programmes, we will aim to provide on-going support and extra services. 

The nature of these extended services are largely influenced by demand as it emerges.  We also offer a breakfast club from 8.00am and an extended extra-curricular programme at the end of the school day.

Our overriding aim is to provide a programme of activities which capture the aptitudes and interests of the children in our care.  With this in mind, the Trust makes provision for a range of booster and enrichment activities in the school holidays.  This is an opportunity for children to enrich their learning, try out new things, have fun and meet friends.



Please take a look at the Easter Activities Holiday Programme 2017 and sign up early by registering your child(ren) using the following link  http://q-r.to/EasterActivityProgramme2017 , or by scanning the QR code available from the letter/School News.  You can also complete the registration form on the back of the programme. Places are allocated on a first come - first serve basis.   It is important to note that some activities feature more than once and therefore, please be mindful that only one place per child will be allocated. 


Booster Classes will be taking place on Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th April 2017.  Please refer to the Literacy and Numeracy Activities Programme for further information and to reserve a place, please reply to School by Friday 3rd March.


In addition to the Booster Classes, the Trust has again put together an expansive programme of activities for its pupils from Reception age through to Year 6.  With a selection of activities ranging from sport and craft to adventure play and various trips, arrangements have been set in place from Monday 18th to Friday 22nd July, Monday 25th to Friday 29th July, and Monday 1st to Friday 5th August, respectively.  

Please take a look at the details as soon as possible to avoid disappointment and complete the necessary registration form, as follows: http://bit.do/rosedalehewensacademytrust-Summer2016


During the recent holidays, children from Rosedale Primary, Hewens Primary and Brookside Primary took part in another successful joint ‘Easter Extravaganza’. They told us that they enjoyed mixing with children from the other schools, at the various sessions. 

The holiday programmes always aim to use all three primary schools as venues and the specialist facilities of the secondary schools, across our Trust.  The children thoroughly enjoyed the range of activities. For example, students at Parkside Studio College provided two sessions involving exciting cookery and decorating activities. 

Our minibuses were used to transport the children to Willows Farm and Odds Farm. The children had great fun with the animals and the other attractions at the farms.

The local shops were visited by children who had to choose whether to ‘spend or save’! 

The children demonstrated skills of being responsible, resourceful and resilient.

As always, we welcome feedback from the parents about the ‘Easter Extravaganza’, especially as we are already thinking about new ideas for the 2016 Summer Activity Programme.

Summer Holiday Programme 2015

The Memorabilia Booklet is now available (see below) which it is hoped will serve as a lovely reminder of the Summer Activity Programme 2015. 

In addition to the Booster Classes, the Trust has an expansive programme of activities on offer from sport and crafts to adventure play, for example.  With a number of trips included in the programme, all pupils from Reception through to Year 6, have the opportunity to take part.  Further arrangements will be set in place - details to follow.
