Ofsted Registration No: EY332242 Based at Southwater Infant Academy this club serves the children and families at Southwater Infant and Junior Academies. Based here since 2006 we were delighted to be rated Outstanding by Ofsted in 2014. The club is run from the Infant Academy main school hall, with breakfast and snack served from the kitchen at the rear of the hall. Depending on the weather, we have use of the ballspace, playgrounds and field for outside play. We have an established and qualified staff team who are highly experienced in meeting the needs of school aged children and providing an ever changing programme of activities. For our youngest children we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage principles, offering play activities that help to meet their individual development needs. Being situated on the school grounds means children can attend other after school activities in either school and join us when they are finished.

Based at Holbrook Primary School our club has grown quickly since it opened in 2010. In 2016 we were thrilled that our Holbrook club was also recognised as outstanding by Ofsted. Located in a secure double mobile classroom the children have ample space to play with friends of all ages or in their separate infant and junior areas. The children can “free-flow” between indoor and outside activities and are actively encouraged to play outside on the playground or field whenever the weather permits. Infant children are taken to and collected from their classes, ensuring that messages can be shared between home and school. An established and qualified staff team plan fun and varied activities, and work closely with school and families to understand and meet the needs of all of the children. As at Southwater we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage principles for reception aged children, offering play activities that help to meet their individual development needs. Children can attend other after school activities and join us when they are finished.
This club opens from 7.45am until 8.40am and from 3.00pm until 6.00pm.
Our breakfast clubs open at 07.45am. As research shows that children perform better in school when they have had a good breakfast we encourage them to join us at the table for their first meal of the day. A typical breakfast will be a choice from a range of healthy cereals, toast and fruit juice. After breakfast the children are free to participate in quiet play. We aim to ensure that children are calm in preparation for their day of learning. Our children in Reception, Year 1 and 2 are then escorted to their classrooms for registration.
At the end of school our staff collect the younger children from their classrooms and escort them to club. Here they will be offered a range of weekly themed activities and free play opportunities both inside and out. Children can choose from arts and crafts, construction, imagination and role play toys as well as traditional and group games, puzzles and a quiet area. Children take turns to play on our electronic games which are time limited. Between 4.00 and 4.30pm children are invited to enjoy a healthy snack and drinks to keep them going until home time. This is a social time for sharing news and experiences, group games and quizzes. Our after school clubs close at 6 o’clock.
