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.


The children can arrive at the club premises from 7.30am. (Please note that the club cannot take responsibility for any children until they have arrived inside the club premises and been signed in). Access is via the gate from The Downs leading onto the top playground.

The club is an ideal facility for working families, and the children can enjoy breakfast with some of their friends.

Breakfast consists of a choice of cereals, fruit, toast and drink.

The junior children are allowed to make their own way into class and all the Infant children are taken to their classrooms by play workers.


Junior children make their own way into the club straight from class or at the end of other clubs they are attending. Infant children are collected from their classrooms or at the end of any club they are attending by members of our staff.

The register is taken and the children are offered a snack of toast, fresh fruit and a drink before playtime/activities.

The children can be picked up at any time up to 6pm (please note the club cannot release any child unless a named adult has arrived and signed them out). Access is via the school car park (gates are open from 5pm) and the Junior pedestrian gate at the front of the school.
