We provide a variety of extra-curricular activities which are run voluntarily by school staff, parents and other organisations. These are held either within school hours or after-school, either on school premises or elsewhere.
Cookery – the club was originally set up with funding from ‘Let’s Get Cooking’ which lasted for three years to 2013. Through the cookery club, pupils have learnt a very wide range of techniques which they have used to demonstrate new-found skills to members of the public our parents and governors who were invited to sample recipes.
Craft– run on a rota basis with the cookery club
Sports– Biggin has always been a sporting village: the local football teams are very successful in tournaments and as a school we have been immensely successful in tournaments run through Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School in Ashbourne. Derby County Football Club provides a sports coach who runs a variety of sporting tuitions which, you will not be surprised to learn, includes football. For one of Derbyshire’s smallest schools we have achieved many sporting accolades, beating much larger primary schools in netball and football. At this moment in time we have few older children; therefore we have joined up with Hartington Primary and formed BiggHarts to compete with other feeder primary schools at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School in Ashbourne. The children are currently participating in hockey, netball, basketball, multi-skills, gymnastics and dance. A governor teaches the children netball skills on a Friday after-school during all but the darkest, wettest weeks. Coaches from Derby County in the Community teach the children a multitude of sporting skills after-school on Thursdays outside on our playing field/ground.
Music - all Year 3 pupils have a weekly violin lesson with a local teacher. This is funded by the school and takes place in school hours. There is also a Music Club open to all pupils from Y4 - 6. The children are given the opportunity to play a variety of instruments and learn about music from different eras, different countries, different styles.
