Out Of School Club
The extended club offers places for breakfast and after school. We provide an open door policy enabling parents to bring their children at short notice, should a last minute emergency occur.
Children are supervised by experienced qualified staff, with a child-adult ration of 9 to 1. Each session has a minimum of two staff at any one time.
We have a fantastic purpose built unit within the school grounds, which includes an ICT/X-Box Suite, a TV room (The quiet room) and of course we utilise our impressive outdoor area wherever possible.
Parent and Child Quotes
“The staff running the Out of School Club are so friendly and always stop for a chat. I know they look after my boys fantastically, keep them safe and make sure they have fun!”
“My sons both love Out of School Club – in fact before Daniel joined school, he used to talk about it all the time- it was the think he was most looking forward to! I like the fact there’s lots of different things to do and on nice days they get plenty of fresh air and exercise. They mix with people from all year groups too which is a definite bonus.”
“I like playing with my friends. I like having my tea” Amelia
“I enjoy the Out of School Club because we get to play football outside, play on the computers and the staff and first aid is really good.” Jacob
A Safe and Stimulating Environment
We pride ourselves in offering a safe and stimulating environment where parents/carers feel confident leaving their children to play and participate in activities. All the club’s staff work within the school so the children are familiar and comfortable during each session. Our older pupils in Key Stage two embrace the youngest members of the group forming solid friendships and encouraging their confidence as they develop.

OFSTED comments November 2011
‘The out-of-school provision makes a very strong contribution to the well-being of pupils who attend. Pupils comment that the breakfasts prepare them well for the start of the day and they enjoy playing outside at the end of the day.’
Terms and Conditions
We require a booking in form to be completed on a weekly basis, stating the session required for your child/ren for the following week.
Payment to be made in advance at the time of booking, if a session is cancelled by yourselves this must still be paid for and no refunds will be given.
Forms can be obtained from School Club staff or outside the main office.
Completed forms and payment should be passed to a member of staff or directly into the office.
As with all day care providers if your child is not collected within the agreed hour then the next hour charges will apply. If your child attends an after school activity and will be attending the O.O.S.C after the activity then the first hour must be paid for as your child will be the responsibility of the O.O.S.C
The above procedures will ensure that a place is available as required for your children. Our school club is still available to use for last minute/emergency bookings, but these sessions must be paid for at the time of dropping off or on collection. Please inform staff at the Out of School Club or at the main office.
As part of our safe-guarding policy all children are to be collected by a known adult unless prior arrangements have been made with a member of staff. In the instance that children are to be collected by a responsible minor then a collection authority slip is required to be signed in advance by the child’s Parent /Carer.
