Early Birds and Owls
From September 2020-21, as a result of Covid, we were unable to run the provision as detailed below. We ran instead provision for the same hours from the school hall with children in tents- one per year group, as they were for lunch- to ensure no mixing of year group bubbles. Provision was therefore necessarily more restricted to games, toys, colouring etc in the tent, with a light breakfast and after school snacks delivered to the tent 'door'.
Since September 2021 we have been able to remove the tents and the need for 'bubbles' and have been able to create greater flexiblilty and choice for children but still within the hall space.
Our usual provision:
Since September 2016 Early Birds and Owls has run successfully in school to provide before and after school care for children from nursery age to Year 6. The club operates from the school nursery class which gives children access to a wide range of activities and toys both inside and out. Supplementary activities are available for older children such as access to laptops, craft activities and board games. Cooking and seasonal crafts are regular features of the club, as is time for reading or homework so that parents and children have less to do when they get home.
Early Birds: 7.45-8.55am with a light, healthy breakfast
Early Sport: 7.45-8.55am on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, with a drink before school
Owls: 3.30-6.00pm with a light, healthy snack to keep children going until dinner at home
Parents sign their children up for sessions for one term at a time. Payment can be made weekly, monthly or termly, in advance, to the school office and we accept Childcare Vouchers.
