Opening hours: 7.45am – 6.00pm.
We provide “wrap around” care both before and after school: 7.45am to 8.45am and 3.15pm to 6.00pm.
The fees for OOSC are as follows:
Breakfast 7.45am – 8.45am (or any part thereof) £3.50
Early afternoon 3.15pm – 4.30pm (or any part thereof) £5.00
Full afternoon 3.15pm – any time after 4.30pm and up to 6.00pm £8.00
Light refreshments are provided at the afternoon session. As part of a new healthy food initiative fruit is served daily but alternative snacks are also available.
Art and craft activities are provided at all afternoon sessions and it is the child’s decision if they want to join in. Free play is also offered and there is a large supply of jigsaws, games, lego, dressing up/role play clothes. Alternatively there is a quiet corner, with books for reading, if your child wants to unwind after a long school day. There are two computers available in the club with a variety of games. In warm weather the children can play, under supervision, outdoors in the school grounds. Activities such as tennis, hockey, netball, rugby balls, skipping and a parachute can be organised for group play.
Sessions can be booked as a regular standing agreement, or a one off basis, but pre-booking is not always essential.
Initial contact may be made through the school office or call in at the club to have a look around and speak to the staff.
