"Owls" Wrap-Around Care



We recently updated our Owls wrap around care provision area, to create a welcoming, engaging environment for our pupils to enjoy their time in the before- and after- school club. 

This facility is open to all our pupils, from age 2-11.

Please phone the School Office or Sonia on 07749 005987 for further information. 


A Typical morning at OWLs:

Children are dropped off by parents after 7.30am and signed in. They play with their friends in the provision - this may include reading, table football, small world play, dressing up, drawing, colouring, craft, listening to music or in warmer months playing outside. 

Breakfast of toast, cereal and juice is provided at 8am for those who wish to have it. 

Children then play again until 8.45am, where they are walked to classes by the OWLs leaders. 


A Typical Evening at OWLs:

OWLs leaders collect children from classes at 3.15

Children play or take part in organised games or craft activities until it is tea-time. 

If they are staying for tea, they will be given a light tea

Parents collect and sign the children out at either 4.30pm or 6.00pm.

If a child attends an extra-curricular club in school, they will be collected by OWLs leaders from school when that finishes.



Mornings:  Children can access breakfast club from 7.30 onwards and the cost will be £5.50 this includes cereal, fruit and toast

Afternoons: Children can access the after school club up until 4.30 at a cost of £5.00

Alternatively they can stay until 6.00 at a cost of £9.00 which includes a light tea. Siblings can attend at a reduced price of £8.00 per session

If your child would like to include this facility in their offer of 30 hours for two-year-olds, please speak to Mrs Symes, our Early Years Lead,  through the School Office on 01924 325300 and we may be able to facilitate your request. 


Parents are invoiced for outstanding OWLs fees, and are requested to pay via ParentPay.
