After School Childcare
After having consulted Goverment guidance with regards to the reopening of schools, we have decided that we are able to once again offer after-school childcare in September.
After-school childcare will begin again on Monday 7th September.
In September we will be able to offer after-school childcare to:
- A limited number of children.
- Only those children whose parents have already returned the survey/questionnaire (July 2020).
From September after-school childcare sessions must be booked by midday on Friday of the previous week via ParentPay. It is solely a parent’s/carer’s responsibly to book their child into after-school childcare before the set deadline. Sessions are paid for at the time of booking.
Office staff will consult the ParentPay system when drawing up registers for the coming week each Friday after the deadline.
No refunds will be given for unused sessions.
Our wonderful after school kids club started in September 2015. It runs every night until 6 o'clock. Kids Club is based in the Children's Centre right next to our school car park.
The club run by Mrs Lawson, Mrs Hunter, Mrs Patterson and Mrs Linn offers welcoming, caring, safe, engaging and quality childcare. We encourage the children to take part in many activities ranging from art, board games, reading, physical activity, themed projects, construction and collaborative tasks. Children even go on hot chocolate picnics in our school grounds.
Within our charges children will be provided with a healthy snack. Our older children are encouraged to help in the preparation of snacks to encourage important social skills and values.
Charges are based upon the amount of time your child will spend in Kids Club. From 6th April 2019, there is a minimum charge of £5 for the first hour and then £2.50 is charged for each subsequent 1/2 hour block. There are no charges for any materials used during Kids Club.
If you require any further information please contact Mrs Hunt or Mrs Topping in the school office who will be happy to answer any queries and provide you with an information pack. Places can be booked via the school office.
If children also wish to attend after school clubs Mrs Hunt will ensure that your child is taken to Kids Club at the end of any after school club.
