Our Breakfast and Afterschool club is available to all children from reception to Year 6. We have been running for over 17 years and have gone from strength to strength due to our dedicated and enthusiastic managers Sharon Perrin and Wendy Tyler. They are supported by an inspiring team of playworkers.
The club has its own base, located in the maple room and small hall. This enables the children to take 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, ICT suite, MUGGA and pirate ship.
Staff encourage the children to be creative both inside and out, testing their skills and knowledge of the world, and encouraging physical and cognitive activities. There is a vast selection of play equipment and resources and 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 £18.90
This includes a light snack upon arrival (dietary/cultural preferences are considered).
Sibling discount: We offer a 5% discount on siblings who attend the same sessions.
Weekly discount: We offer a 5% discount for children who attend five Breakfast or Afterschool sessions a week.
Late fee: A late fee of £1 per minute will be payable up to the first 15 minutes, which then increases to a flat £30 between 15- 30 minutes late, increasing to £45 when any later.
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 Payment Instructions), 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.
Bookings can be made for ad-hoc session or booked for the entire academic year, all are subject to availability.
We require 6 weeks’ notice for cancellations to bookings and any monthly instalment plans will be adjusted to account for this. If you have opted to pay by Childcare vouchers, you will have to manually adjust your monthly payments with your provider.
At our latest Ofsted inspection in 2018, the setting was rated as 'Good' and the inspector comments on how the children are happy and secure and have lots of interesting things to do and explore. She also highlights how happy our parents are with the provision.

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.
