Enrichment Activities

(Gardening club)

Staff at Lakefield show their commitment to children's enrichment beyond the classroom by volunteering to run clubs each term. In exchange, we ask children to stick with their chosen activity for the full 6 weeks that the club runs.


We offer music tuition in recorder, violin, cello, flute, clarinet, saxophone (from year 6), trumpet, cornet and horn. All children in year 3 and above have the chance to learn an instrument, and we offer bursaries and subsidies to families whose circumstances might make this difficult. Currently over a third of our pupils learn an instrument in school at Key Stage 2. Our school band meets regularly and performs at concerts and to the school. Special parts are written to ensure that as many children as possible participate. Children are entered for Associated Board music examinations when their music teachers deem them to be ready. 

On the sports field, we take part in local leagues and tournaments, as well as friendly matches. During the past 12 months, children have taken part in athletics events, rounders, cricket, netball, football, hockey, rugby, swimming, bowls and tennis fixtures.

Children take part in the annual dance festival, and we have a tradition of high standards in dance for all pupils (boys and girls). We have links with many local clubs, and medals and trophies for sport feature in most of our Friday celebration assemblies.
