Out of School Club & Breakfast Club

Out of School 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. It is a place where your child can play with their friends in a safe and friendly environment.

It costs £3.00 per half hour, or part there of.  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 school office.

We 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 if your child is absent due to illness or goes home ill from school, the money will be carried forward to the next week.

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.

Please contact the School Office on the Friday of the week before to book Breakfast Club places.
