Out of School Club
Welcome to the St John’s Out of School Club
We have our own Out of School club on site, managed by the school and led by qualified and experienced staff. St John’s Out of School Club is a not-for-profit registered charity. This enables us to support parents and carers by providing high quality childcare at affordable prices. Our objectives for the Out of School Club are:
to create and maintain a safe, caring and supportive environment for our pupils outside of normal school hours
to be flexible in accommodating the needs of parents
to operate on a sound financial basis to ensure the continued success and viability of the Club
The Out of School Club is open from 7.30am to the start of school (8.45am) and from the end of school (3.15pm) until 6.00pm. The Club also operates a holiday club during the first week of the school summer holidays. We look after children from the age of three to 12 years old. Please note during the pandemic we are offering after school care until 5.00pm in order to keep to class bubbles.
The club is located in a designated room within St John’s Primary School which is set up to offer a range of activities for the children to enjoy, including:
Arts and crafts
Games and puzzles
Opportunities to catch up on homework
“Chill time” – time to have a break with friends, chat, read and relax!
Weather permitting, the children have the choice of staying indoors or going outdoors to play. Technology time on the iPads and Wii is timetabled so that the children have the opportunity to enjoy other activities. The children are provided with a healthy breakfast and a range of afternoon snacks.
