20th October - Due to the ongoing Covid restrictions we are reviewing our wrap around care provision for next term. I am pleased to announce that we are now able to offer this for all children from the beginning of Term 2. We need to ensure the children remain as safe as possible so will be keeping the children in ‘bubbles’. This does mean, however, that if you need your child to attend you will be required to book a place for the whole week. You will also need to pay, in advance, via school money (under ‘Trips’ section) for all sessions, regardless of whether your child attends.
We will be offering the following services:
Breakfast club will run from 7:45am-8:30am and will cost £10 for the week.
After school club will have two sessions. 3:15pm- 4:30pm, costing £20 for the week and 3:15pm- 6:00pm, costing £42.50 for the week.
Please complete the key survey form here by 9:00am on Friday 23rd October. We will notify you by Monday 2nd November if your child is not successful in gaining a place. If you do not hear from us, the provision will start from Tuesday 3rd November.
If you have already applied or your child is currently attending you will need to reapply to ensure your child has a space.
