After School Care
After School Care is available and can be booked by parents of pupils in Woodlands, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 who are unable to collect their children at the end of the normal School day. After School Care is particularly popular with parents who have older children in the Middle and Senior Departments (whose School days finish at a later time) and who may wish to dovetail pick-up or bus times.
Parents who require After School Care are asked to register their children in advance for regular days, although a limited number of places are also held for use by parents whose plans have unexpectedly changed and require a one-off collection time later than 3.15pm.
The After School Care facility is available every day and is run by an experienced team of (DBS) checked adults who will care for your child from the end of the Junior day. There are two options, 3.15pm to 4.45pm and 3.15pm to 5.30pm.
The After School sessions are more relaxed than the normal school day. The children are provided with a light tea and are then able to select from a variety of activities: board games, craft activities, outdoor play. The buzz of excited chatter is testament to the enjoyment of the children who attend.
A charge is made for this facility because of the number of staff required to maintain appropriate ratios of staff to children and to provide experienced care. Details of these charges are available here.
We were assured by the head that we would be 'blown away' by the wealth of space and facilities - the fabulous covered pool, the enchanting forest school and woodlands where pupils are allowed to run free at break times, vast grounds, brand new all-weather cricket nets and breathtaking buildings - we certainly couldn't fail to be The Good Schools Guide, 2017
