Wraparound Childcare at The Lodge
We operate a before and after school club every day on the school site. This facility is run by school staff and managed by one of our experienced teaching assistants, Miss Braham. The Lodge provides the children with a safe, fun environment at both the start and the end of the school day. The Lodge is a specifically designed space to allow the children access to a wide range of toys, games and activities and also allow them the time and space to relax before or after a busy day.
Breakfast sessions: 7:30 – 8:45am
Each morning breakfast is served until around 8:15 and consists of a selection of cereals, crumpets, croissants, toast, yogurts and fresh fruit. The children are offered milk or water to drink.The children have a range of indoor games and activities available to them and will access the playground under supervision (weather permitting!). At 8:45am the infant children are taken to their classrooms and the junior children are able to join their friends on the lower playground.
Each session costs £4.00
After school sessions: 3:20pm – 5:30pm or 6pm (please state which finish time you require)
Each evening the children are served a light snack from 3.30pm. (Those children attending after school clubs are offered their snack when they arrive at the Lodge at 4.20pm) The current menu is displayed below.

I like after school club because you can go outside and you have toys to play with. There are hula hoops and skipping ropes, footballs and tennis equipment.
Evie, Year 6
I like coming to after school club because they have lots of exciting games including Monopoly, Frustration and lots more. You can colour fun pictures and play with Lego. In the summer and when it is sunny you can run free on the playground and play with skipping ropes, footballs and tennis balls. Then there is tea - bagels, mac and cheese and pasta. It is a great place to come and play so come along and join the fun!
Jack, Year 5
I like breakfast club because it is fun and it has lots of toys and the ladies are kind.
Harrison, regular attendee, Year 2
I like breakfast club and after school club because it provides good food. My favourites are sandwiches, sausage rolls, toasted bagels, toast and croissants. I also like Breakfast Club and Tea Timers because of the large supply of toys and games, including outside toys.

Places can be filled quickly and so it is always advisable to allow at least 24 hours notice of your desire to book a place for your child. Please don't let this put you off asking at any time however - there may be places at any time! In the same light, please ensure you give us as much notice as possible if you need to cancel your child's place - this could really help out another parent in need of a place! If you cancel your child's place within 24hrs of the intended session you may still be charged.
