After School Club
Children make their own way directly to the First Shared Area. We offer children a range of activities, games and entertainment, or just the chance to relax and unwind.  We have different craft and sports activities each day which are planned half-termly in advance to ensure a varied programme.  We have our own dedicated room with a fenced outdoor play area, games and puzzles for older children, team games, sports and free play outside as much as possible. There is a full range of toys and activities to cover all age groups from 4-11 years with a homework area available if required. 
 
All children are offered a range of activities and can choose to participate or engage in their own preferred activity. A healthy light bite is provided at 4.30pm such as beans on toast, wraps, pasta and sauce. Parents must sign their children out, stating the time of departure. All new children are observed during their first weeks to ensure they are happy, making friends and engaging with the activities. Children within the EYFS age group are regularly observed to ensure they are meeting their developmental goals.  For children within  the  EYFS  age  range,  we will display their work along with others on a display board during their  time at the club and this will be available to parents at any time.
