Homework club: Most clubs run between 4:00pm and 5:00pm. Children may also elect to stay for supervised homework club. If a child has not been picked up by 4pm they will automatically be taken to Homework Club and at 5pm children who are yet to be picked up will be transferred to Late Club.

Late Club: Between 5:00pm and 5:30pm, children returning from after school activities and those finishing homework will be transferred to Late Club. Late Club allows children to rest and enjoy some ‘downtime’ before being picked up by parents. We request that parents try pick up their children no later than 5.30pm, but a member of staff will always remain with a child until parents arrive. There will be further additional care until 6:00pm for a fixed cost per fifteen minutes from September 2016.
