This facility provides a fun, friendly environment, with a whole host of activities and equipment for children to enjoy at the end of the school day. We operate from 3:15pm until 5:45pm on each day, helping to meet the needs of parents or carers with work or other commitments.
From September 2017, session costs will start at £0.90 for 15 minutes, with half an hour costing £1.80 and an hour costing £3.50. The price include a snack and a drink, and covers the cost of materials for any additional activities.

All bookings need to be made on a Friday by 1pm – we cannot guarantee places after this time.
The booking system is operated on a first come-first served basis.
Booking forms needs to be placed in an envelope with the child’s name, class, days and times you require with the correct money. Cheques need to be made payable to Worcestershire County Council, alternatively you can pay by Payment4schools online. (Please make sure that the completed booking form is sent in with amount paid, date and receipt number on).
Credit will only be given if your child is absent due to sickness or a 48-hour cancellation notice. If you decide to not send your child to after school care with less than 48 hours notice, we will not be able to give credit.
Some families may be eligible for Working Tax Credits. To find out more about this, either call the Tax Credits Helpline on 0845 300 3900 or visit https://www.gov.uk/working-tax-credit/overview.
If you are also eligible for 30 hours funded childcare, you may be able to use this at one of our care clubs. Please speak to the headteacher for further information.
Please ensure that fees are paid promptly. Non-payment for more than two weeks may result in future bookings being declined.
Children will be registered at the start of the session.
If you will not be collecting your child at the end of the session, you will be required to complete details of another nominated person on the registration form. For security reasons, children will only be permitted to leave with yourself and the nominated person and not by anyone under the age of 18 years old. As an additional security measure we ask parents to name a ‘password’ (any word chosen by parents/guardians) which the person/people collecting will have to give to a member of staff.
If for any reason you may be late, please notify us as soon as possible.
If you are late collecting, there will be an additional charge of £5.00 per 15 minutes. If your child remains uncollected after 6.30pm, 45 minutes after the club closes, and you have not warned us that you will be delayed/we have been unable to reach you or any of your emergency contacts, we will follow school policy and contact Children’s Services.
On departure it is a requirement that you sign your child out.
