Our Breakfast and Afterschool club is available to all children from reception to Year 6. We have been running since September 2008 and have gone from strength to strength due to our dedicated and enthusiastic manager, Kim. She is supported by her deputies Andreja & Sally and a wonderful team of Playworkers.
The club has its own base, located in two Portacabins on the junior playground and the children have really taken ownership - making it their own place to unwind, relax, create, learn, and play. They are involved in making decisions about the club through the Club Council. In addition to the Portacabins the children have access to the school hall, playground, field, MUGGA and ICT suite.
Staff encourage the children to be creative both inside and out, testing their skills and knowledge of the world by building dens in the woods, climbing trees in a supportive environment and encouraging other physical and cognitive activities. The setting is divided into Infants and Juniors ensuring that the play equipment and resources are tailored to their age and abilities. As well as free play, a daily adult led activity is provided which may be a cooking, craft, quizzes, or a sports activity.
Clubland is open Monday to Friday during term time, although Afterschool club is closed on the last day of each term.
Open from 07:15, we have two session prices:
Both sessions include breakfast, which is served until 08:15.
Running from the end of the school day (15.05) until 18:15, it costs £17.00.
This includes a light snack upon arrival (dietary/cultural preferences are considered).
Sibling discount: We offer a 10% discount on siblings who attend the same sessions.
Weekly discount: We offer a 5% discount for children who attend Breakfast or Afterschool Monday to Friday.
Late fee: A late fee of £1 per minute will be payable up to the first 15 minutes, £30 between 15- 30 minutes late, and £45 thereafter.
Deposit: A deposit of £25 will be taken for all installment plans at the time of booking and will be taken off the outstanding balance.
We take payment via Tax Free Childcare Vouchers (TFC), Company Childcare Vouchers (a full list can be found on our XXX page), or Credit and Debit cards.
All bookings spanning a period of less than 34 days must be paid in full at the time of booking. If your booking is over a period of more than 34 days (i.e. for a term) then you can create an installment plan and pay monthly across the period of your booking. A security deposit of £25 will be taken at the time of booking.
All parents are required to create an account on our online booking system, which is managed by magicbooking. This will allow you to manage your details, view availability and make, pay for and cancel bookings.
Permanent bookings can be booked for the entire academic year and are made online.
Please note that Parents are not allowed on site and therefore handover will take place at the school gate. You will be offered a selection of session times to choose from that coincide with a drop off or collection time. You have the option to choose different times throughout the week, however you will be required to complete a separate booking for each different session time. For example, create one booking for Tuesdays and Thursdays if collection is at 16:00 and a separate booking for Wednesday if collection is at 17:00. We do not offer discounted rates for shorter sessions as our costs still apply.
Ad hoc bookings are available a week in advance. Availability can be checked online but the booking must be made with Head Office over the phone. An invoice will be raised on the online system and require payment in order to secure the booking.
We require 6 weeks’ notice for cancellations to permanent bookings and any instalment plans will be adjusted to account for this.
No refunds will be given for cancellations to ad hoc bookings.
At our latest Ofsted inspection in 2017, the setting was rated as 'Good' and the inspector comments on how the children enjoy their time at Clubland and develop their skill sets through the activities we run and the routines we adopt. She also highlights the good relationships with have with both children and parents.
The full report is available online to download.
In line with school policy, we will hand your child over to teaching staff in the morning and Infant children are collected by our staff at the end of the school day. Junior children make their own way to Clubland and a register is taken.
When you drop off or collect your child/ren, you will be required to sign our daily register. If you are unknown to staff on collection you will be asked for the password that you nominated on your registration form as a means of identity.
All our Policies and Procedures are available online.
