We run before school and after school clubs.
Early Morning Club is an optional club open to children from Nursery to Year 3. Nursery and Reception children should go to the EYFS classes from 8.00 am and Years 1 – 3 may arrive at the Dining Room from 8.00am where they will be supervised until 8.30 when they will go to their classroom. Older children are supervised in the playground areas.
Little Owls is an after school club available for children in Nursery to Year 2 from 3.30pm-4.00pm. After 4.00pm children then go onto the main Late Club. There is no charge for Little Owls.
Late Club is available to parents of children in Nursery upwards who would like their children to remain at school in a bespoke after-school club between 4.00pm and 6.00pm on weekdays during term time.
The charge is £6.50 per hour with high tea provided at 5.10pm. The supervisory staff are fully trained and qualified and provide an interesting and varied programme of activities for the children. To book a place in Late Club parents should fill in the Late club form and send it to the School Office. All costs will be charged in arrears.
