Fun Activities Snacks Time to do homework Club
St Luke’s before and after club service operates for it’s pupils, and only St Luke’s children can attend. Here your child can play and learn in purpose built facilities with health and safety of the children is a priority. Security is thorough but unobtrusive with entrance doors being locked at all times and no child being allowed home with anyone other than a parent or other nominated person and by prior arrangement with the staff. The car park will be open for only parents using the care club to drop off and pick up. Gates will be open at 7.30am and close at 8.20am and be open again at 4.30pm until 5.45pm.
To give peace of mind the service is a Governor led facility and falls under the same Ofsted regime as the school so you can be safe in the knowledge that rigorous fair selection and recruitment, safeguarding and health and safety policies are in place and checked and updated regularly.
The club will provide structured play and activities to educate whilst entertaining the children. Although the emphasis is on fun, Ofsted do require evidence that there is planned activity and that the children’s needs are met. Regular consultations with children and parents on how they see their time with us being spent are carried out half termly.
There is a quiet area to do homework and children also have access to the KS1 play area as well as IT equipment.
The added benefit of the extended care service is that the children are able to participate in the after school clubs and sports events as well as “hanging” with their school friends.
Overall, our aim is to provide a mix of learning and fun to encourage development in a way that is both relevant to the children and relaxed.
There will be breakfast in the form of toast or cereal and a drink in the morning from 7.45 until 8.30 am.
In the afternoon a snack consisting of a sandwich, a drink and a piece of fruit will be provided. The food in the afternoon is provided only as a snack and is not intended to replace an evening meal. This will be served from 3.45pm until 4.45pm (for those who are participating in the after school activities).
