It is very important that you book your child/children into after-school club on a weekly basis, as the number of staff we have is reflected on the amount of children booked in. You need to book in or cancel by 1.00pm. If you do not cancel by 1.00pm you will still be charged.
We cannot stress enough that this is a safe guarding issue. If your child is not booked in with us, we cannot pick them up from school.
In after-school we have a snack at 4.15pm every night. This is only a snack meal, for example noodles, breadsticks and dips, hot dogs, sandwiches, chicken burgers, pasta and sauce and many more. If they don't like the snack on offer we will make them a sandwich of their choice.
There is fruit, milk and water accessible for the children throughout their time with us.
Things we do..
All our planning is done by the children. We ask them what they would like to do and this then becomes our weekly plan. Our staff also think of things they know the children would like and this also goes on the planning.
We do lots of crafting, painting, baking and colouring.
We have access to the outdoor playgrounds, football pitches and the field.
We also have lots of board games, for example Pie Face, Guess Who, BattleShips, Monopoly, Ker-Plunk.
We have face paint, nail polish and make-up, dressing up, lego, a pool and air hockey table.
We have a games with an Xbox, PS3 and Wii. We alternate which console we have on weekly.
We have a quiet room where the children can go to read a book, do their homework or just chill out.
We do a reward scheme where for any good behaviour the children get a raffle ticket. There is no limit on how many raffle tickets they can get! These then goes into a box and at the end of the week the person with the most tickets wins a prize. We also choose a lucky dip winner to win a prize every week.
We do many competitions which we display on our notice board, alongside what we have done that day, and our star of the day/week winners.
I hope you enjoy looking through what we have been getting up to!
After School staff.
