School holidays and INSET days can be a real juggling act for working parents.  The Holiday Club can offer a safe and relaxed environment for children of primary school age and is also available to families whose children attend other schools. Children can be dropped off and collected any time within the opening hours.  Although we operate on the school premises, it is not like being at school.  We offer a good variety of activities, games and toys, and whenever possible the children are encouraged to play outside and make new friendships.  Specialised days are organised, including picnics, barbecues, crafts and other activities.  We do serve a snack but parents are asked to provide a packed lunch.


Breakfast Club starts at 7.30 a.m. and children can be dropped off at any time from then.  On arrival children can have breakfast consisting of a choice of cereals, toast and a drink. This is an ideal way to start the day for busy working families and avoid the morning rush.  The children have a more relaxed start to the day and they are supervised in a caring environment until it is time for school.  Junior School children leave in time for the start of school and Infant School children are taken to their classrooms by members of staff.


A snack of toast, fresh fruit and a drink is prepared for when the children arrive at the club.  Junior children make their own way to the club, whilst the Infant children are collected from their classrooms. The attendance register is checked and then the children participate in sharing news with each other. Afterwards, whenever possible, the children are encouraged to play outside.  The club has a wide range of games, toys and activities suitable for all age groups.  Facilities are also available for children to do homework if they wish.  There is always plenty to do and the children enjoy each others company. Both younger and older children integrate well.  Children can be collected at any time up to 6pm.
