Before School Care

Before School Care is offered for children from 8.00am onwards.

A continental style breakfast is available in our school library between 7.30am until 8.00am each morning. This is in addition to the usual cost of Before School Care.

Breakfast Menu


  • Fruit juice, milk or water
  • Non-sweetened cereal
  • Fruit based yogurt
  • Fresh fruit
After School Care

After School Care takes place in the EYFS area. In fine weather, children are able to take advantage of the fresh air and play outside in the playground. A variety of indoor activities are on offer, including board games, colouring and painting, story-reading or just relaxing.

After School Care runs from 3.00pm until 6.00pm on each school day, except on the last day of the term.

Light snacks and fruit are offered at 5.00pm every day. 

Both Before and After School Care can be used on a regular or ad-hoc basis, should parents find themselves unexpectedly unable to collect their child at the usual end-of-school time. Details relating to the cost of this service will be published at the beginning of the autumn term or can be obtained from the school office.
