For families requiring child care outside normal school hours we offer wraparound care and activities for children between 8am and 8.30am each morning and between 3.30pm and 6pm Monday to Thursday. Our own staff are the main carers in the Before and After School Care sessions. A variety of After School Clubs are also offered as part of our extra-curricular opportunities.
During the current pandemic we are not able to offer Before School Care because of the mixing of class bubbles and After School Care is available until 5pm. As soon as restrictions lift we will revert to the usual arrangements which are set out below.
Before School Care
Children should have had their breakfast before arriving at Before School Care from 8am. At 8.30am the children are taken to their class teachers ready for registration. This is available to all children in school.
After School Care
At 3.30pm, the children joining After School Care have a drink and a snack in the Dining Room before joining the session. The children follow a mixture of quiet activities including, crafts, drawing, games, jigsaws, painting and reading. The older children may begin their homework. We also make sure the children do some physical exercise using the playground as much as possible, weather permitting, and the school gymnasium if necessary. After School Care is available to all children in school.
We offer parents several options for care; a single session until 4.45pm or a double session until 6pm. Children can also take another extra-curricular activity until 4.45pm/5pm and then do the second After School Care session until 6pm. We aim to be as flexible as possible while caring for the children.
Fees for these care services are shown here.
