Wraparound Care

Payments for wraparound care can be booked and paid on our Childcare Online Booking page which enables parents to manage bookings for their children’s wraparound and after school club care and to make bookings and cancellations (in line with our terms and conditions). 


Our breakfast club operates from 7.30am each weekday morning. Children are given a healthy, nutritious breakfast which is served until 8:20am. There are a variety of activities available each day to entertain the children before the start of the school day. Children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are escorted to their classes. Other children go directly to their classroom from the school hall. 


The After-School Club operates after school, Monday to Friday from the end of the school day until 6.00pm (5.30pm on Fridays). Physical, creative and outdoor activities are available daily. During the session, at approximately 5.00pm, a healthy and nutritious snack is provided.


Wraparound care, can be paid for via childcare vouchers.  If you want to pay by voucher, you will need to add wraparound bookings only into your basket and process these in a separate transaction to any activity bookings.


If you are paying by card you can pay for Activity Clubs and Wraparound Care at the same time with one basket transaction.

Please note that there is a need to limit the numbers of children attending each club. This may mean that your child will not automatically gain a space in a popular club session.  You can book a session at any time prior to the session as long as there is availability showing online for the club.

What is Out of Hours Learning?


The DfE defines it as:

‘Learning activity outside normal lessons which young people take part in voluntarily. Study is … an inclusive term, embracing many activities, with many names and guises. Its purpose is to improve young people’s motivation, build their self-esteem and help them become more effective learners. Above all it aims to raise achievement.’

Our aims and objectives:


  • To enable children to extend their out of hours learning beyond the range of the normal curriculum
  • To ensure that children take pride in their school and view it as a part of their community
  • To enable children to have further experiences with topics and activities that they enjoy or are good at
  • To help all children to enjoy a positive experience of school life
  • To raise the general level of achievement and build on the work undertaken in school time
  • To enable families and the wider community to have a place in our school


Out-of-hours activities can provide our pupils with opportunities to:


  • Increase their participation in physical activity and improve fitness levels
  • Extend and further their knowledge, understanding and skills developed within curriculum time
  • Experience activities not included within the curriculum that may highlight strengths and build confidence and self-esteem
  • Begin to specialise in specific activities
  • Make independent choices and decisions about their participation
  • Take part in activities for a variety of different reasons (e.g. for recreation, fun, competition, social)
  • Socialise with pupils from different classes/year groups and make new friends
