Extra-Curricular Activities for Parents and Children
Here at Pikes Lane we are very proud to host a wealth of activities and extra-curricular clubs to help enhance the Pikes Lane Learning Journey.
We have a broad range of clubs for all ages and encourage pupils to get involved by taking part in the Children’s University Scheme. All clubs run before school at lunch times and after school so that pupils can access a club at a suitable time for them.
We have a good range of opportunities for parents to be involved. Please see our timetables below. If you have any ideas or questions, please pop into school or call and speak to Mrs Wallace, Extended Services Manager.
Family Homework Support
We are happy to support children and parents with homework. We have a support session for parents each Thursday from 2.30pm. This doesn't just have to be homework help, the support session is to help with anything, such as filling in forms or helping with managing behaviour at home. Homework help is available for all pupils on Mondays and Fridays in Breakfast Club.

"I like doing my homework with my Mum."
"I love watching the parents grow in confidence as they develop their own skills in order to support their children" Mrs Lowe
KS 2 Cookery Club
Cookery club is held every Monday and Thursday after school in the community room. The children learn to cook a variety of foods and learn about food hygiene and keeping safe in the kitchen. Cookery Club is run by Mrs Lowe. Look at our photos and comments below to learn more about our club.
"I like coming to cookery club. I like watching the food grow and bake"
"We have learned how to cook safely"
"I love showing the children a new skill and seeing the fun they have when they try something new for the first time. We always try to link to topics we are studying in school such as fractions or measuring. Its great to see the children growing in confidence and parents are always asking for the recipes."
