Following the Easter holiday, the before care club will be available from 7.30am Monday – Friday and the aftercare club will be available up until 5.45pm Monday to Friday.

This trial period will commence on Monday 9th April and last for the whole of the Summer term.



Before/Aftercare Bills

Bills are issued via email to the number one contact on our database.

Before & Aftercare

Contact Number for before care and aftercare is 01706 642 469.  

Before care is open at 7.45 a.m. each morning

We open school at 7.45 am and will supervise your child/ren until 8.30 am when the school day begins.  Please note :- when dropping off or picking up your child from before or after school care can you please use the double doors only near the Year 2 classrooms, (at the top of the steps). You will no longer be able to take a short cut through the main doors.  It will probably be easier for you to use the church car park to park your car as the entrance/exit doors for before/aftercare are now on that side of the school.  Please could we ask you to advise the school office/staff if someone is not allowed to collect your child from aftercare. 

Thank you for your cooperation.  


Morning care Charges

For the morning care service we charge £2.00 for the supervision, then £1.50 per additional child from the same family. 

Please do not leave your children unattended on the premises in the morning before 7.45 a.m.


Aftercare is open until 5.45 p.m. each evening.

Open each evening from 3.15 p.m. to 5.45 p.m. usually in the area outside Year 2 & 3 classrooms and the computer suite; and sometimes in the Hall or in the playground if the weather permits. 

After Care Supervision is provided by a class teacher or lead teaching assistant and two classroom assistants.

A drink and some fruit are provided for your child at approximately 4.00 p.m. If you have any objections to your child receiving these, please inform school.




Aftercare Charges

£1.50 per child per ½ hour (or portion of ½ hour) for the first child, then £1.00 per additional child from the same family per ½ hour (or portion of ½ hour).

Families on a low income or single parents can reclaim part or all of the charges from the DWP, by completing their appropriate forms.

Childcare Vouchers

Please note Childcare Vouchers can only be used for Before & Aftercare and Holiday Care.



If your child is unwell we will try to contact you. You must sign a parental consent form, before your child attends; giving us permission to take your child to hospital, in case s/he requires emergency medical treatment.


Allocation of Places

There is no need to pre-book a place. Simply inform your child’s teacher or (in the case of an emergency) phone the school office and we will ensure that your child is sent to after care. After Care can be used on a casual basis, whenever required. This service is open to children from the local community.



The same high standard of behaviour that is expected in school is also expected in our After Care Club. Although the children are able to choose which activities they participate in, they are expected to behave. If you are consistently late or your child misbehaves, then use of the service maybe withdrawn.
