Our before and after school clubs are really popular with parents and children. Our Nursery and Reception children are together in the Rainbow Room. Years 1 to 6 use the Lower School Hall, IT Suite, Studio as well as the playground and field.
From September 2020 the children will be in their own year group 'bubbles' for before and after school. This is part of our mission to ensure your children and our staff team stay safe. We may be spread out further across school but will ensure you are informed of the collection points for your child/ren.
Before School Club
Our before school and breakfast club is open to all children from 07:45. All children have the option of having breakfast with us too. There is a choice of cereals available each day including corn flakes, rice crispies, shreddies and weetabix.
When it’s time for the children to go to their classes, they are escorted to their classrooms or the appropriate playground depending upon their age.
After School Club
After school club begins at the end of the school day for the children. This is different depending upon which year group a child is currently in:
Please note that After School will be closed at 5.45pm from September 2020 until further notice. All families are kindly asked to have vacated the premises by this time. Thank you.
Younger children are collected from their classrooms by the Greyhounds team while older children are trusted to walk down the corridor to the club. All children are signed in so we know they are safe.
Everyone is offered snack. Here is a list of the typical foods we serve at snack time. If your child has any allergies or children would like something which we currently do not serve please speak to us. Please also ensure all allergies and intolerances are on IPAL and backed up with a email to us at Greyhounds.
From September 2020 snacks will be given in a 'snack pack' as part of our revised working due to the current situation. this means the food will have had minimal human contact and is part of our mission to keep your children and our staff team safe.
After snack children have some free play time before being given a choice of ‘mini clubs’ which then run until the end of the club. Clubs we run include sports, ipads, colouring, arts & crafts, play dough, den building, scooter hockey, painting, junk modelling, quizzes, word searches and board games. We also have access at all times to the outdoor area for children who just want to spend time outside after their day at school.
If any of our children or families have any ideas on activities and clubs they would like us to try at Greyhounds please contact us and where practical we’ll give it a try!
