                                 3.30pm to 6.00pm

We also offer afternoon Nursery care  12.30 - 3.30pm Monday to Friday        


Early Nics                      7.30—8.45am     £4.00 includes cereal or toast and a drink

Children who access 30 hour free government provision must also pay £4.00 per day (after their free hours entitlement is reached) to cover childcare between the 15 hour morning session and the 15 hour afternoon session.  These pupils may bring a packed lunch or pay £2.30 for a school dinner.



All parents / carers who wish to use the childcare facilities should first complete a registration form  in full with all details required.  Payment must be made via the child’s Parent Pay account online in advance in order to secure a place.

Signing in / out

Before and after school parents should enter through the rear hall doors or Nursery entrance as advised. All children must be signed in on arrival (Early Nics) and out again at the end of the session at the after school club. Any changes  to expected arrangements for attendance or collection must be communicated to the school office by 4pm on 01902 842998.

Wrap around children are signed in at the start of the morning session.

Late Collection

If you are late collecting your child after 6.00pm there will be a late payment charge of £5 per 15 minutes late.

If more than 5 mins late into the next time bracket e.g the parent has paid for care from 3.30-4.30pm  and arrives at 4.40pm to collect then they are eligible  for the next price bracket fee e.g £8.00 and would be charged the extra  £4.00 as a penalty.
