Inclusive After School Club

Our inclusive After-School Club is a fun and safe space for children to be creative, express themselves, socialise and unwind after a busy day at school.

We pride ourselves in being a child led organisation and every day we offer a variety of activities for your child to choose from.

We are OFSTED registered and all staff and volunteers are DBS checked.

Activities on offer vary from day-to-day. Every day (weather permitting) we include outdoor play for the children to get some fresh air and a runaround. We have a wide range of outdoor and circus skills equipment including parachutes, balls, stilts, diablos, spinning plates, poi and hula-hoops.

Activities on offer across different sites include:

  • outdoor camp
  • arts and crafts,
  • cooking,
  • garden and sensory play,
  • circus skills,
  • basic Makaton signing,
  • trips out,
  • football and outdoor sports,
  • drumming, drama, disco, fancy dress,
  • cinema or wii on special occasions,
  • table football,
  • table tennis,
