Where are we...
The St Andrew's After School Club operates from a building within the safe and secure confines of the school site, allowing the children to safely and easily transfer from the main school building to the Club. The school playground facilities are utilised and the security gates provide access to parents as usual.
Staff are onsite from 3.00pm to set up. The children transfer to the hut straight from school at 3.30pm where they are offered fruit on arrival and a larger snack at 4.30pm. The After School Club is open until 6.00pm. The fee is £8.50 for a permanent, invoiced session and £9.00 for an adhoc session, booked on the day, space permitting.
