Before and After School Care

We run a breakfast club every week day morning from 7.15am - 8.45am. A healthy and varied breakfast of cereal, fruit and toast is available from 7.15am-8.15am.

Our welcoming team are experienced and well trained. We offer a range of structured and unstructured activities in a free choice environment to suit individual children and their diverse needs.

You are responsible for signing your child in to club on the register at the time of arrival but please note you will be charged the full session regardless of what time you drop off.

Children will be delivered to their individual classrooms by our staff team. The club operates in a classroom and has access to the secure playground.

Cost

£5.00 per session

Charged and invoiced a half term in advance.  [Payable by 2nd week of each half term via Parentpay only.]

Please complete the booking form attached to secure your place.

Adhoc last minute bookings will be accommodated where we have spaces and you will be invoiced accordingly.

Our After School Club is run by our Manager, Laura Jones, with her team of staff. The team are highly experienced and trained to provide your child with stimulating and fun after school care.  Laura has planned a programme of activities which regularly includes risky play, painting, modelling, arts and crafts, dressing up, role play toys, board games, jigsaws and organised games and challenges. We have access to our secure playground to encourage plenty of outdoor learning on our play equipment.

There is a quiet cushioned area to relax, listen to music, have a chat or possibly read a book.

Laura and her team will provide a snack meal for early leavers and a hot meal for the childern who are here until 6.30pm.  The children will sit together to eat at the beginning of the session. They will share their day’s news with their friends and it provides a warm friendly welcome to the club.

Location

The club operates in the Stay & Play classroom with secure access to the playground. Your child will be picked up from their classroom by one of our staff. At the end of the day, at collection, the parent/carer is responsible for ensuring their child is collected on time and that they are signed out upon leaving.

Booking

We ask that all correspondence including booking forms, adhoc requests and necessary communications go through our dedicated email address wraparoundbookings@harpendenacademy.co.uk

The school office will be unable to pass on any messages during the school day and our After School Manager, Miss Laura Jones, will reply to all correspondence to this address. 

Our Finance Team will invoice you a half term in advance.  Payment is due the 2nd week of each half term via ParentPay.

Times, Costs & T&Cs

The club runs from 3.20pm-6.30pm, Monday to Thursday and 3.20pm-5.15pm on Fridays (a later Friday session will be considered if there is the demand)

Session 1: 3.20pm-5.15pm is £12.00
Session 2: 3.20pm-6.30pm is £16.50

There is a 10% discount for siblings and a 10% discount for children who attend both breakfast club and Stay & Play every day.
