Out of School Club & Breakfast Club

Our Out of School Club (OOSC) has been running very successfully since 2003 and has been appreciated by parents and children alike.

Please take a moment to read the information about the club, and look at the photographs of children in the club enjoying the kind of activities your child can take part in should they attend.

OOSC is not just available to working parents. If your child would like to try our facilities and play with their friends in a safe and friendly environment but aren’t sure whether they would like it, free taster sessions are available, please contact Mrs Bartley or Mrs Pritchard for more details.

It costs £4.00 per hour, or part there of in 15 min chunks.  A healthy snack is included in the price of attendance.

OOSC is open from 3.15pm - 5.45pm Monday to Friday (term time only).

If you qualify for working tax credit and/or child tax credit you may be eligible to claim up to 80% of your childcare costs.  In order to do this you will need to contact the Tax Credits Helpline, quoting our registration number: 3942099.

OOSC packs are available from the office, this includes a handbook giving information about the club and policies and procedures, contact/medical/ photograph permission forms and how our registration/fee collection system works.

We do require that you inform us on a Monday morning if your child is staying at the club for any day of that week and that payment should be made at that same time. Place the day, date and times along with payment in an envelope with the child’s name clearly labelled on the front.

However if for some reason you are unable to pay on the Monday you must still inform us if you require your child to attend that week.

Please note that unless your child is absent due to illness or goes home ill from school, refunds are not available.

In addition please only ring for a late booking in a genuine emergency, for example called in to work at short notice, illness, accident, car breakdown, if you are in a traffic jam or for any other genuine reason you are unable to collect your child from school, using your usual arrangements, at 3.15 p.m. This is to ensure that the safe guarding procedures we have in place are adhered to, in so far as the OOSC staff being aware that your child is registered to attend and therefore your child will be picked up safely from the classroom at 3.15.p.m.

Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club runs Monday to Friday during term time and costs £2.00 per day.

Times: 7:45-8:30am.
