R. Starkey (Head Teacher), Dallas Road CP School

Activ8 has run self defence classes at Dallas Road for almost 7 years as an after school club for the children from Reception to year 6. The club is popular with children and caters well for individual needs and there are opportunities for children to progress through skill levels. The pupils involved are proud of their achievements and are confident in displaying their new skills for others. It is a good opening for children to the martial arts and self defence classes.

It is a well organised club and the administration of the club is done independently from the school creating no extra burden for the school office other than collecting initial interests.

All appropriate insurances are in place for a club of this nature and all staff have appropriate clearances to work with children.
