School Clubs

We aim to provide our pupils with a well-rounded and stimulated learning experience throughout their time at Willington Primary School. There are a range of enrichment activities on offer before, during and after school. In addition, there are many educational visits and events as well as opportunities to participate in sport and music.

‘The school provides many exciting opportunities for pupils to broaden their spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness’.

MTL Coaching
Our coaching after school club runs at least once every half term (£10 for a three-week block). Within these sessions, the children get to experience a broad range of sports including, basketball, handball, dodgeball and football, as well as having access to our on-site PE apparatus. It is an excellent way to get children enthused about sports, and supports their skills that are learnt within the PE curriculum. We aim to promote a healthy lifestyle within these sessions, so a healthy snack and drink is provided at no extra cost. The children are presented with t-shirts and medals at the end of their coaching journey (annually), as a great incentive to stay active!

The residential gives children the opportunity to develop team skills and encourage independence as well as having lots of fun! More details will be released for 2023 in the Spring Term.

Educational Visits
Educational visits enhance and develop learning throughout the curriculum. Educational visits are designed to enliven the curriculum, giving learning a real context to provide extra motivation and greater understanding for pupils. Visits take place on a regular basis and destinations may include visits to a local farm, museum, nature reserve, forest, local amenity etc. The Pupil Premium (additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement) continues to allow us to either fully fund or subsidise these visits in 22/23. For further information on charging please view our Charging Policy which is located in our School Policies section of our website.

Instrumental Tuition
Durham County Council music support service provides musical opportunities for pupils in school.

The ability to play an instrument is something that will stay with your child for the rest of their lives. Playing and singing will not only increase their understanding and enjoyment of music, it can also:

  • help social skills
  • build teamwork
  • increase self-confidence
  • give opportunities to perform
  • be a fulfilling hobby that can open up new opportunities

Playing an instrument or singing takes commitment. Pupils need to bring their instrument to every lesson and will need to play or sing regularly at home. They will need support and encouragement and there may be times when they find it difficult. Remember that they will not be able to play tunes straight away and that the early stages may not sound wonderful.

There are charges for lessons and for the hire of an instrument.  Charges do not apply if your child receives, or could receive, free school meals (evidence must be supplied). For further information please click here.
