Out of School

Breakfast Club, After School Club and Holiday Club


We provide a safe and caring environment for children, where they can play, meet friends, develop new skills and relax while school is closed. The children all have access to a varied assortment of resources, including arts & crafts, computers, games, puzzles, books and toys. There are also many opportunities for them to explore and play outdoors.


At all times children are encouraged to develop their independence and build on their own personal, social and emotional skills, including serving themselves healthy snacks and meals, taking responsibility for their own personal hygiene , understanding appropriate behaviour while playing in a group or alone and building confidence by taking on new challenges, including supervised risk taking.


All staff are DBS checked and trained to work in partnership with the children, parents/carers, schools and outside organisations to ensure the children feel safe, happy and comfortable within the setting. We are an inclusive setting and welcome children with additional needs and languages and support will always be offered to ensure all children have the opportunity to grow both physically and emotionally during their time with us. All our settings are directly responsible to Ofsted who check our provision to ensure our quality of care remains at the highest level.
