The children have had lots of fun this term, in Before and After School Club. 

Themes and activities

The children have enjoyed the theme of ‘Space’ and have been working their way through our file of Dyson Challenges. The children have achieved their Bronze Award and are on the way to Silver!

They are now enjoying our Christmas crafts and activities. 

School Activities

Please remember to inform us if your child / children will be taking part in any of these. We work very closely with school staff at the end of the day to ensure all children get to where they are meant to be, but it can be a very hectic process for us and the school if we have to keep asking which children are in the clubs.

Please also remember to let us know if you are collecting your child from school on a day when they are booked into the After School Club.  

Registration Details

Please remember to update us with any changes to your child’s personal details e.g; change of address, health & dietry information etc and your contact numbers in case of an emergency. If you are not sure of the details we have for you and your child please ask a member of staff to show you your registration form. 

Holiday Club

We are running a Christmas and New Year Holiday Club in our childcare centre at Longsands. Please ask for further details if you need a place. We will be open 21/22/23 December and 3/4/5/6 January. 

Last Day of Term

Extra Curricular Activities

We respectfully ask that you inform us if your child/children will be taking part in any after school extra curricular activities. We work very closely with the school staff at the end of the day to ensure that all children get to where they are meant to be, but it can be a very hectic process for us and the school if have to keep asking which children are in the clubs.
