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 school day.
After-School Club commences at 4.00pm. We offer 3 sessions, finishing at 6.00pm. Those children who stay for Session 2 will leave after being fed - which makes life much easier after a busy day! Others will join just for Session 1 and some stay for the whole evening.
Fruit and water is available freely throughout the sessions and children are given thier 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 a home role-play corner.
During Session 3, between 5.15pm - 6.00pm, the children in Prep (Years 3-6) complete their homework and the younger children do their spelling and reading. Children in Bluebird Nursery are also very welcome to attend After-School Club.
We also offer a Holiday Club for most of the school holidays which is open from 8.00am - 6.00pm (full details below).
