After School Care

After School Care runs from 3.30pm to 6.00pm Monday to Friday during term time. It costs £6.50 per child per day and is booked via Parent Pay (up until 2pm on the day). Need to book after 2pm? No problem, just give the office a call.

There is a different theme every day with activities based around that topic. The themes are loosely based around the curriculum to support learning across school but in a more relaxed way with lots of games, crafts and home-made play dough.

Our timetable for the next term is below but please note that we may need to swap things around occasionally due to weather etc!

After school care timetable for next half term

Food and Dietary Requirements

The children will be helped to make a snack each day after they finish school. Dietary requirements will all be catered for by school as usual. Snacks will change to fit with our themes, for example we’ll enjoy croissants and hot chocolate when we’re talking about France or unusual fruits when we’re exploring the jungle.

The foods we regularly have are raisin bagels, fruit salad, hummus and veg sticks, beans on toast, porridge, rice crackers and jam. On Thursdays we generally bake and on Fridays we have milkshakes and everyone gets a lollipop to take home!

Friday night wind down with The Chill Out Zone and D.I.S.C.O.

On Fridays we will do things a bit different and take time to come together and discuss our week, write about it in our journals, sit as a group and do crafts like knitting and make smoothies and milkshakes to relax with. We will do some yoga and mindfulness to get ready to go home and enjoy the weekend with our families and friends. And once a half term we’ll shake it all out on the dance floor with face painting and games!

Who can attend?

Everyone can attend, no matter whether your child is in nursery or Year 6. We’ll be catering for everyone. Plus, if your child is at one of our after school clubs, we can then collect them from there at 4.30pm.

Make do and mend!

Our crafting activities will be based around the principles of reduce, reuse, recycle so please do collect useful things like shoeboxes, old magazines and newspaper for us and bring them into school. Plus, the children can win Dojo points for their artwork (and other things like helping to tidy up, trying new foods or making new friends.)
