AND AFTER SCHOOL CLUB
Crich Carr Church of England Primary School Breakfast and After School Club (known as Club) offers a variety of stimulating play led by the Club Supervisor and her two assistants. All are highly qualified and enthusiastic about their work.
Our aim is to provide a 'home from home' setting in our cosy school house which has been totally refurbished and resourced to provide an environment that is different to that of the classroom. In this homely setting we seek to ensure children feel happy and secure and are provided with motivational activities which stimulate their minds, improve their knowledge and develop their skills.
We also recognise the need for children to have time to relax and unwind and we aim to create a family atmosphere where good relationships between all children and staff are fostered.
Our Club team regularly plan and deliver a large range of activities, ensuring the children are offered lots of chances to engage in varied arts and craft sessions, imaginative fun, cookery nights, organised indoor and outdoor games. Wherever possible, proposals placed in the 'Suggestion Box' are incorporated. Children are always welcome to submit fresh ideas for activity themes or request a new healthy snack to try out. We run 'Fun Party Nights' throughout the year, celebrating events and festivals.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework, allowing us to support learning and promote the development of our Nursery and Reception children. Every EYFS child attending Club has their own photo folder displaying a range of pictures and staff comments about the activities they have enjoyed joining in.
The Club team are:-
Helen Tomlinson (Supervisor)
Anita Turtle (Assistant)
Elle-May Smith (Assistant)
Club is run through our school and not an outside provider. Therefore, being an extension of school, all relevant school policies apply to the Club setting.
Opening times and fees
Club is open throughout term time only and on Inset days we are open all day. Club is very flexible so children can join us for as little or as often as required.
If you wish to join Club then please complete the registration form which can be printed off here and return to School or Club.
"What's for snack?"
A cold snack will be provided at no extra charge.
Results of our Feedback Survey
Every year, we undertake a survey of all families who use Club to both highlight any potential issues and to help us identify how we can further improve what Club offers. The results of these surveys will be made available via this website.
In the last survey, 100% of parents who responded rated Club as excellent/good and would recommend it to others. All respondents rated Club’s safety procedures as either outstanding or good. Here are some of the comments we received from parents:
“This year I have noticed a huge improvement to the Club. The activities are fantastic – even in the cold winters they are out an about. The staff play with the children. It is absolutely fantastic. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to send the children to Crich Carr.”
Fantastic provision; our child feels happy, safe and valued – the excellent provision definitely helps to ease the guilt associate with being a working parent.”
“You’re doing a great job – can’t think of anything we would want you to change.”
“It’s a fantastic support network for a parent who doesn’t always get the chance to take their child to/from school during normal school hours. It’s great.”
“The provision is very good, especially when we have experienced other after-school provision (which our child disliked). As parents, we would like more of the same. The ‘family atmosphere’ is amazing and just what our child needs as she had a phase of lacking confidence.”
