Our Whitley Park after school club is now in its fourth year. We have been running a breakfast club since January 2020. Our clubs run out of the dining room hall/canteen. Drop off and collections are at the Dining Room hall/canteen door. We have full access to the playground and field. We can also use the school hall for indoor play and sports. Our after school club is run by our supervisors Louise Holloway and Clare Sheppard with regular playworkers, Bethany and Naomi. We have access to a small kitchen which enables us to provide hot food for those children staying for the full session.
Covid Arrangements for staggered starts and finishes:
Our Breakfast Club opens at 7.30am and Jordan Edwards will continue to supervise the children. You are welcome to bring your car into the car park and drop your children but please try and arrive before 8am to avoid any of the other parents or staff on site. We have a list of your child’s year group start time and Jordan will drop your child at the classroom door for those times.
After School Club
Children in Year 1,2, 4 and 6 finishing school at 2.45-3pm – School staff will take the children to the school office where they will wait in a safe area. We will come and collect the children at 3pm once our staff have arrived and we have set up the room. There will be no additional cost for the extra time.
Children in Reception and Years 3 and 5 finishing at school at 3.15pm will join us at the normal club time of 3.15pm. Reception children will be brought to us by a member of staff.
Nursery children will start with us at 3pm and be brought across by a member of school staff.
Parents will be able to collect their children from our door as the car park gates will be open from 4.30pm. If you arrive earlier, you will need to park outside the school and walk in to collect your child.
The entrance and exit to our room is at the canteen door just past the science block. Please note that this door will be locked for most of the time for security and safety so you may need to phone the club mobile in order to let us know you have arrived especially if we are playing outside. The number will also be displayed on the door.
Please be aware, during this current climate that parents/carers will not be allowed into the actual breakfast club/after-school club room, so please bear with us and your child while we get their belongings together at home time. Please wait socially distanced from other parents.
To help us to better understand your child, please do complete the All about Me form and feel free to add any other information that you think would help us to ensure your child settles and enjoys their time in our care. You can email this back, or ask the school to pass on to us ready for when they come to after school club.

It may be helpful to let the teachers know if your child is attending after school club when you drop off too, while everyone is new, it helps them and us to get the children smoothly to the correct place in the early weeks.
