Barclay Primary School Extended Services
The school is Ofsted registered to provide childcare for up to 45 children aged 4 to 11 years. It is open from 8am until 6pm during the school holidays. During term time, we run a Breakfast Club from 8am until the start of the school day and a Teatime Club from the end of the school day until 6pm.
We aim to promote the development of children in a safe, secure and happy environment. Our aim is to provide stimulating, challenging and enjoyable experiences for all the children.
The clubs are open to all children in full-time education. Priority is given to children of working parents and children of families in need. We also accept children from other schools in the surrounding area for the Holiday Club.
The Holiday Club is based in the Children’s Centre. While there the children are given a breakfast of cereal, toast and juice (parents need to provide a packed lunch). Teatime Club children are offered a healthy snack around 4pm such as beans on toast; pitta bread with salad and tuna etc; water is freely available at all times. The menu is displayed in the club and is available on request.
Snacks and drink are provided each day; however, this is not intended to substitute for a main evening meal that the child may receive at home. We promote independence by encouraging the children to prepare their own snacks and to clear away after themselves. We use fresh ingredients and follow statutory guidelines.
Individual dietary requirements and parental preferences are met wherever possible. We recognise the importance of healthy nutrition for children delivered in a calm, friendly setting.
After-School Activity Clubs
Letters are sent out at the start of each term with a list of all the clubs available to children. On this letter children indicate their first and second choice club and hand it in to their class teacher. We endeavour to provide children with their first choice of club.
Club Timetable: Autumn 1
KS1 - Site 1
Please choose your club carefully as we cannot make changes once a club has been assigned to your child.
Shine Saturday School
With support from the educational charity Support and Help in Education (Shine), Barclay runs a Saturday school for 60 children from Years 3, 4 and 5 to encourage improved achievement. Pupils who attend Shine@Barclay study literacy, maths and performing arts through exciting topics which often involve special trips or visiting professionals. Shine is extremely popular with pupils and is always heavily oversubscribed. This year, Shine will cost £5 per week which will need to be paid per term in advance.
