Extra Curricular Activities

Extra curricular activities run throughout the year. The main clubs are aimed at KS2 however we do provide some clubs for KS1 as well. Our clubs are aimed at further developing the children's knowledge and understanding and some of the clubs are fun based as well as learning.


We are members of the Rochdale Borough School Games Partnership. This gives us lots of opportunities to compete against other schools in a wide range of tournaments  and one off competitions. In the past we have taken part in

Tri Golf             Cricket                   Cross Country      

Athletic            Rugby                      Dodgeball

Football            Swimming            Outdoor Adventurous Activities

Basketball       Boccia                     and much more...........


These competitions and events also allow us to progress to the regional finals and the winter and summer games.

In the autumn term, we were nominated for the Rochdale Boroughwide Sports and Performing Arts Award for School Commitment to Sports and PE.  We were shortlisted and eventually won!  This is a huge achievement for our school and testament to the great dedication and commitment from Mr McKenna, our School Sports Leaders.

Initiatives-

Walk to school- We have teamed up with 'Living Street' who are an organisation who promote  walking to school and hope to encourage millions of people all to enjoy walking across the nation. At Holy Family we have decided that we also want to promote more of our children and parents to walk to school. Every Wednesday we encourage our children to walk or park on our church car park and walk across to school. If our children manage to walk for 3 put of 4 weeks then they are rewarded with a special badge. This continues throughout the year so that our children can collect a different themed badge each month. This is our second year of promoting this and we have already see big progress and hope we can add another day.

Healthy Tuck Shop- Our sports ambassadors have successfully run a Fruit Friday at lunchtime in the past and we now intend on taking this one step further. We hope to offer a wider range of healthy snacks and on a more frequent occasion. Watch this space................. 

Breakfast Club 

Breakfast Club is available every day for children who wish to make use of the service.  It is run in the school hall and costs £1.50 per day per child.  This cost covers the price of breakfast and supervision.  Children are supervised from 7.45am until the start of school. 

We have recently bought some fabulous new equipment for our breakfast club, so please make the most of them.

Mr McKenna leads team games each morning during breakfast club.

If parents wish to make use of this service, please make arrangements with the school office before sending your children to the Breakfast Club.

 

Lunch Time

At lunchtime our lunchtime organisers provide a wide range of sports for our KS2 children with the help from our sports ambassadors and our playground leaders from year 5 provide lunchtime games for our KS1 children.

Physical Education

Here at Holy Family PE plays a big role in our children's school life. Each Class are provided with 2 hours of high quality PE each week. Our PE lessons cover all aspects of the National Curriculum. This ensures our children develop a range of skills in gymnastics, invasion games, striking and fielding games, athletics, dance and net/wall games. PE is taught by Me McKenna, however we also try additional or specific coaching from specialist outside coaches from the Rochdale School Games Partnership and Link4Life.  In fact, we are so devoted to providing good quality sports provision both within and outside of the curriculum that we have been awarded the 'School Commitment to PE & Sport Award' in the 2016/17 Rochdale Borough Sports and Culture Awards.  A high accolade indeed!  We are also the recipients of the Gold School Sports Award for the 4th consecutive year in 2018.
