Please read the policy below for our Extended Schools provision.

There are several Key points outlined below:

  • Spaces are limited to 16 for Night Owls and 24 for Early Birds.
  • Please use the wooden side gate & bell.
  • There will always be two members of staff on duty.
  • You must book at least 4 days in advance of wanting a space- this is especially important for those wanting Monday care (weekends are included in these 4 days).
  • You must pay for spaces when you book.
  • We are unable to refund any money if you cancel a space (we have to ensure we have enough staff on duty and they need to be paid).
  • We will refund money if we need to cancel our provision due to lack of staff or a lockdown.
  • We will not be accepting children who turn up on the day without a booking.
  • We are unable to ‘pop’ children into Night Owls for 5 minutes if you are late collecting your child from school.
  • Parents will need to drop off and collect from the side entrance (wooden gate). Please ring the bell in the mornings and evenings. If the children are on the field in the evenings the staff will leave the walkie-talkie in the bird box next to the wooden gate, channel 4. 


If you need to contact Early Birds or Night Owls if you are going to be late or have a change in collection arrangements and the office is closed, please telephone 01284 735337 & select option when prompted.



Bookings and payments can be made online at School Gateway and must be made at least 4 days in advance (see link below) where the booking options and costs are displayed.

If you feel unable to pay the cost of an after-school club or other activity due to family hardship please contact the Headteacher. Each case will be dealt with in complete confidence and it may be possible to arrange a remission of charges in part or in full.
