To help us keep clubs running and offer the best possible childcare Early Birds and On Your Marks will be working together as one club over the next few months.
Clubs will run much like in school with pupils only able to mix in their Year Group bubbles (listed below) They will have the opportunity to take part in different activities including sports, arts, crafts, and games.
Morning clubs are available to all children however there are limited spaces, so we ask that you only sign up if you are in need of childcare. The children will work and play in their year groups bubbles and all children will get the opportunity to take part in sports throughout the week in 30-minute sessions. They will return to their Early Birds leader after their sports session.
After School Clubs
Children are welcome to attend evening sports clubs as usual but will be split into Year groups clusters. Each group will spend 45 minutes with Mr B participating in the sports listed below and 45 minutes doing games with an Night Owls Leader. All sports clubs will finish at 5.00pm (If your child has signed up to Night Owls they will return to their leader after this time). If you wish to collect your child from Sports Clubs before 5.00pm you are welcome to do so but you will need to let us know via email/phone call to School on the morning of the Club at the latest.
If your child is attending Night Owls, they will still be collected from the normal club door. If they are only attending after school sports clubs, they will need to be collected from the KS2 entrance to help you and us to adhere to social distancing rules. Please follow the one-way system when moving around the School site. Please note you will not be able to pick your child up from the main School Entrance.
If you have signed up to Early Birds you will continue to pay the advertised price of £5 per hour and sports will be included in this. If your child is attending After school sports clubs the price is £3 for the 90 minutes to be paid in advance of each session.
Although children are welcome to sign up to any club you must complete the consent form which will cover all sports clubs (in case your child wishes to attend more than one). If you have already signed up to Early Birds/Night Owls you will not need to fill in a form.
Below is a revised schedule for afternoon clubs. Your child is welcome to attend any clubs that apply to their age range. Children will have the opportunity to take part in all sessions listed.
We offer a range of different before school and after school activity clubs, which provide options for childcare.

The School is also able to offer wrap around care through a private provider- Mrs Mary Moran who has run Early Birds (8 - 9.00 a.m.) and Night Owls (3.30- 5.30 p.m.) within the School for many years and holds a 'Good' rating from Ofsted.
