Parent of Year 4 pupil.
Upton is open from 7:50am until 6:15pm Monday – Friday. The extended school day provides flexibility for working parents. Breakfast Club (7:45am - 8:45am) and ‘Upton Ship After School Club’ (3:15 – 6:15pm) have been set up to provide regular, consistent childcare provision for the parents of Upton. We accept Childcare vouchers.
In addition to the full extended day, we are in a fortunate position in that we provide a wealth of extra-curricular opportunities for the children of Upton.
Clubs are run before, during and after school. A Clubs Newsletter is produced termly detailing the host of activities available.
Club Information and Organisation
All clubs will start straight after school at 3:15pm. Children follow usual ‘end of the day’ routines and meet the ‘Club Leader’ on the playground. All clubs dismiss their children on to the playground at the end of the session. Finishing times vary, please refer to individual club letter and Upton Clubs Newsletter.
Where possible, clubs are not cancelled; they will go ahead regardless of the weather.
The office will send out club reminders and notifications. Please contact the office for enquiries.
Safety & Security
A register is taken at the beginning of each club and every child ‘checks out’ with the Club leader before departing.
If a child signs up for a club we ask that they commit for one term (approx. 6 weeks). If a child is unable to attend on any occasion we ask you inform the school office or Club Leader as soon as possible.
Children may apply for as many clubs as they want, five days a week if they wish! We do our best to accommodate everyone; in the event of a club being oversubscribed, children are placed on a waiting list or offered an alternative.
