Before and After-School Care

At Long Knowle Primary we currently offer a Breakfast Club. At the moment after-school provision can be accessed at another local school, Wood End Primary School. We are able to provide transport to Wood End at the end of the school day if required. 

Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club opens at 8:10am and provides pupils with breakfast which ensures that children are ready to start the school day. Children are cared for by qualified members of staff in a safe and welcoming environment. In addition, the pupils that attend breakfast club have the opportunity to participate in activities supervised by the staff. Breakfast club ends at 8:40am when children join the rest of the pupils as they enter school.

Breakfast Club places need to be booked in a week in advance at the School Office. While this facility is subsidised by the school, there is a small daily charge, currently £2 per day, payable in advance or on arrival by Parent Pay.

WoodEs After School Club

WoodE’s After School Club provides childcare from the end of the school day until 5:45 pm. Children are able to undertake facilitated activities (e.g. model-making) and supervised play. The after school club utilises the School’s facilities and benefits from qualified childcare professionals.

In addition, children are provided with nutritious snacks. WoodEs will be open on each day that Wood End Primary School is open to pupils for normal school, except on the last day of each term when After School Club will not be open.

WoodE’s aims to:

  • Provide a happy, safe, warm and stimulating environment for all children to play learn and develop freely

  • Help children to develop responsibility for themselves and their actions and to become competent, confident, independent and co-operative individuals

  • Encourage children to have a positive attitude and respect for both themselves and other people

  • Promote a positive relationship with parents/carers and work in partnership with them to provide high quality play and care for their children 

If you wish your child to go to WoodE’s, you need to arrange this directly with Wood End School. They can be contacted on 01902 558940.

If you wish your child to be escorted from Long Knowle to WoodE’s, this needs to booked in advance with Long Knowle.

Children may walk to WoodE’s or be transported in a member of staff’s car – the member of staff has appropriate insurance.
