Morning and After School Care

Morning and After School Care Club

 

Leigh North Street Primary provide a very successful Morning and After School care club for 4 -11 year old children. Our clubs have a maximum of 50 places and a waiting list is kept. Ofsted reports have commented favourably in regards to our wrap-around child care. In addition to this local schools and the Southend Local Authority have visited us to witness good practise and seek advice. All of our staff have first aid and safeguarding training with the addition of key workers receiving food preparation and hygiene training.

 

       - This provision provides several benefits:

      - Reassures working parents that their children are in a safe/familiar environment

       - Enables parents wishing to return to the work force

       - Morning Club helps children who are anxious about school by preparing them for the day ahead as this is a fun way to start.

       - A level 3 Staff member is always on sight. 

       - Promotes interaction with children of differing ages.

       - Promotes healthy living as meals provided are in line with our Healthy Schools ethos.

        - Staff are employees during the school day at LNSPS.

 

All children have the opportunity to take part in activities such as art and craft, lego, movies (wet days), sports/playtime outside, homework, table tennis, drama, snooker and board games. Children are also given the opportunity to just ‘chill’.

Persistent Lateness

Persistent lateness at pick up time will incur a daily charge depending on the club attended. We do understand that on the odd occasion, ‘things happen’.

Pick Up Point

All children will be picked up before 5:45pm from the rear of the school hall on Cannonsleigh Crescent. There is a doorbell should you arrive to pick up early. Under no circumstances will children be released to an unknown adult unless pre-arranged or a password is given. Children will not be permitted to walk home on their own, including the summer months.

Please be considerate towards LNSPS neighbours. The school car park in often used by school and pool staff members.

                                                                           

                                                                             PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SCHOOL CAR PARK FOR DROP OFF OR PICK UP

No Show and Illness

Children who do not attend without informing the school office before midday will be charged for that day. In addition, if a child is off school due to illness, payment made will be carried forward to the next week.

We are happy to be able to provide care for your child and hope this will help with work/other commitments you may have.

Kind regards

The Morning and After School Care Team
