Croftlands Junior School Ulverston
Extended Services

Croftlands SchoolA variety of extended services is available on the Croftlands site. Breakfast and After school clubs are run by Little Acorns Pre-School & Nursery and they provide care for pupils aged 3 to 11 years. The Breakfast Club runs from 7.30am to 9.00am each day during term time and at the end of each session the children are taken to their designated school or nursery. The After School Club is open until 6.00pm and children are collected from school for each session. Little Acorns aim to be flexible in their arrangements and sessions can be booked on 01229 480018.

In addition, during the year a varied programme of activities is available to pupils at lunchtime and after school. Children with an interest in music can learn to play the recorder, join the guitar club, choir or, when we have sufficient brass players, the brass band. During the year, we run an art club, film club, Lego club, coding club, gardening club and a chess club, while sports such as football, netball, cricket, tennis, rugby, dance, rounders and athletics are available at different times of the year. Other activities and clubs are offered when the skills or the staff are available. In 2011, our Weekend Walking Group was started for children in Year 5 & 6 and various expeditions take place in the Lake District fells throughout the year.
