Before & After
The school operates a before and after school club
Breakfast School Care: 7:45am-8:45am
After School Care: 3:15/3:20pm-5.45pm
There is a smooth transition and handover between Before & After School Care staff and teaching staff.
The Before and After School Care have been set up to meet the demands for high quality wrap around care for children attending St John’s Stonefold CE Primary, and children of staff at the school.
The club caters for children from reception class to the age of 11 years.
A place will be allocated by the staff of wrap around on completion of the admissions form.
Parents/Carers will be offered core or flexible places according to their requirements.
The child and parents will be offered a visit to see the club and meet staff. Any child who continues to be disruptive would be asked to leave the club.
Location & Activities
Before and After School Care is based in the school hall. This is a warm and secure area, with free access to the toilets based in the Infant Department. Occasionally, if there is a school club/parents evening or similar event running in the hall, the club is relocated to a classroom.
There are a range of activities and games on offer, or alternatively, children can just relax and do something quiet. There is also the opportunity to play outside on the secure playground.
Snacks & Drinks
There are a range of snacks on offer before and after school including cereal, toast, crackers, spaghetti, beans, milk, juice etc. Staff make every effort to get to know each child to find out their preferences. As the club is part of the school, medical and allergy information is transferred to staff.
Collection of children
After school, there is a separate bell in the Main Entrance which alerts staff you are there. All children must be signed out of the club by an adult.
It is our policy to fine parents who are repeatedly late. The system will be
- (after 3 instances) a written warning letter detailing the times when you’re child has been picked up late and notification of changes which will be applied
- Charges of £20 per 15 minutes per child (this is to cover 2 members of staff remaining behind with your child.)
- Late charges must be paid before your child can continue to use the club.
Breakfast School Care: £5 per session per child
After School Care: £8 per session per child
Places can be booked on a regular basis, or ‘ad-hoc’ as needed.
Accounts must be kept up to date, and we request you to pay in advance, ideally using the online system. All places booked can be credited if cancelled. Fees may increase as is thought necessary to maintain the service
Difficulty to pay
Families who find themselves in difficult situations will have arrangements made to help them through that period. If this occurs please contact Miss Riley in the school office. We will not allow children to use the care if bills have not been settled after 4 weeks.
Before or After School Clubs/ Activities
If your child wishes to attend any after school clubs on their Before and After School Care days, time they will be collected from the club/activity by Before and After School Care staff. In this case, Before and After School Care will be charged full price as a normal session.
Payment can be made via our Online Payment System. If you do not have internet access or a computer, please contact the school office and they will be happy to assist.
We are able to receive Child Care Vouchers as payment.
