St Margaret’s wraparound care is available from Monday to Friday and takes place in the fondly named 'Maggots' Club. Breakfast Club starts at 7.30am and finishes at 8.15am when children will be taken to their respective classes. Our After-school Club is bookable in hourly sessions from 4.00pm - 6.00pm. Maggots Club provision is housed in a spacious, purpose-built room situated within the main school with easy access to outdoor space.
Children attending Breakfast Club are given a drink, cereal and toast during their session and members of staff will ensure that they are safely taken to their classrooms for the start of the shool day. The After-school Club commences at 4.00pm and continues on an hourly basis until 6.00pm. Some children attend the first session only, whereas some children who choose to do an extra-curricular club after school will join the second session at 5.00pm. Fruit and water is available freely throughout the sessions and children are given a hot meal at 4.45pm. A wide range of activities are on offer including art, craft and modelling, construction toys, dressing up, outdoor activities, computer games, puzzles and jigsaws, cooking and home corner.
Between the hours of 5.00pm - 6.00pm, the children in Prep (Years 3-6) move to the Library to complete supervised homework and the younger children remain in Maggots Club to do spelling and reading. Please note that children in Bluebird Nursery attend After-school Club within the Nursery and not in Maggots Club.
We also offer a Holiday Club for most of the school holidays which is open from 8.00am - 6.00pm (full details below).
