'Funstorm' (After School Club) operates on Tues/Weds/Thurs from 3.15-5.30pm.

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, Funstorm sessions are currently postponed. 
We will keep parents updated via Parentmail and Facebook.

Our latest flyers are available to view below:

TUESDAYS: KIDS' CHOICE CLUB

The first night of the week is Kids' Choice Club. One the first week back we enjoy a sensory/craft activity and use visual supports to vote from a choice of two activities for each week for what we want our programme to look like for the term. Children not attending the first session of the term will still get a voice. Choices include food related activities, sensory activities and outings. 

WEDNESDAYS: COOKING CLUB & CREATIVE ARTS CLUB  

The first half of the term sees Wednesdays become Cooking Club - making a variety of sweet and savoury dishes from around the world from scratch using specialised equipment for all students to be able to participate. We often see students who are sometimes reluctant to try things eating a broader range of dishes at cooking club as being involved in the process and seeing and exploring the individual ingredients helps reduce anxiety around food textures and smells. 

After the half term we turn to Creative Arts Club - a mixture of themed craft nights, music and movement sessions and singing and signing. 

THURSDAYS: SPLASH & ACTIVE CLUB

Thursdays are designed to get your child burning off energy with the weekend looming. Students will split into departmental groups and take it in turns to access the school hydro pool for a swim one week, and a range of sports and games as well as enjoying time on the school trampoline for some rebound therapy on the other weeks.

  

Cost & Accessibility

Funstorm sessions cost £12. Some students may be entitled to free sessions through pupil premium funding (students in years R - 11 only). If you are unsure of your entitlement then please speak to Emma in the school office. Our staff are trained and experienced in managing challenging behaviour and supporting those with high medical and/or physical support needs. If you have any queries please contact Rob on the phone, through the home/school diary or via email (rob.broughton@portesbery.surrey.sch.uk).

Please be aware that due to rising student numbers and a general increase in demand from existing students, we are facing unprecedented levels of requests for spaces at Funstorm. While we are still facing ongoing challenges with our level of funding it is currently the case that we can only offer a maximum of one session per week to any student, with some students getting less than this for some very over-demanded nights. We would still urge you to apply for as many spaces as you would be interested in as we are now running a waiting list for each session so that if a confirmed booking is cancelled or another student is poorly then we can offer the space out to someone else.
