Heathcoat Primary extends child care services

Heathcoat Primary School after school club

Heathcoat Primary School is extending its wrap around care by offering an after school club to complement the already popular breakfast club.

After school club runs every weekday until 6pm, and provides parents with an alternative option for childcare. The club offers children the chance to get involved in a range of activities, including arts and crafts, outdoor sports and play, as well as the opportunity for older children to get help with homework and school learning.

Discussing the new club, Head of School Demelza Higginson said: “We understand that care options before and after school are sometimes a necessity for parents, so we are very pleased to be able to extend our services to provide options for any need.

“Each child gets a nutritious snack to keep them going to dinner time, and we ensure that a range of activities are available so that they can enjoy some fun and play after a busy day of learning.”

We also offer breakfast club to pupils, and holiday club to both pupils and non-pupils, with a range of different options for parents who need child care. These new care services mean that we have been able to extend our nursery provision over 48 weeks, from 7.45am to 6pm.
