                Saturday smash activities
Many schools claim a sense of togetherness but Moor Park is more than just a school: it is a community of people working together to create something very special...
Children, staff and parents all play their part to deliver a unique feeling of community. To enable more children to experience this comprehensive Saturday activity programme, it is offered to all children in the local area and known as ‘Saturday Smash’.
If you would like your child to get involved with kayaking, singing, rock climbing, drama or team building whilst developing other
life skills then this is the place for them. All of this and more is available through the Moor Park Saturday Smash programme. Children arrive at school by 8.45am and the morning comprises of three sessions, each with two options, one option may be chosen for each session. The children have a break and snack mid-morning and are collected at 12.15pm.
From dancing in a theatre group to making and cooking your own bread in bush-craft, the array of activities and opportunities for children to take part in and learn through is endless. Any necessary clothing or equipment required for an activity is made available to parents at the start of each term.
Saturday Smash runs during the Moor Park term only when school is in session on a Saturday. This is not every Saturday
   due to half term and other times when children are not in school. Details of all dates are published in advance. All activities are thoroughly risk assessed and led by suitably qualified and experienced adults.
Staff pride themselves on really knowing individual children and in providing a huge range of opportunities for them to discover the interests, skills and passions that are so crucial in building a rounded young person. Happy children are more likely to learn and develop so come along and enjoy the Moor Park fun at Saturday Smash. Places are charged at £10 / morning and can be booked termly in advance.
