As a school we are committed to our Community Inclusion Project. This provides a programme of after school clubs and holiday clubs that are open to all our young people. These clubs are a great opportunity for children to explore new activities and spend some quality time enjoying some of the facilities we have at the school.
We are immensely proud of our team of Community Inclusion Workers who help support the children. Every member of the team knows the children through their work at Fiveways School and their knowledge and experience is invaluable in delivering a fun and safe environment.
Inclusion is very important to us and at the beginning of each academic year we ask all our parents and carers whether their child will be able to attend any of our clubs. This helps us plan our resources to ensure we always have more than enough staff for our children. However, we welcome children who wish to join a club at any time and positively encourage their inclusion.
