Out of School Clubs
At The Shade Primary School we recognise and understand the busy lifestyles of many of our families. As a means to assist these families we have developed extended 'wraparound' care out of school hours. The Breakfast and After-School Clubs are run term time only, by members of school staff.
We offer 8:00am - 8:50am Breakfast Club (including an 8:30am drop-off facility) and a 2:50pm - 6:00pm After-School Club provision.
We are a play based provision, our aim is to provide children with "freedom and time to play" as practitioners we believe that "Play is not a luxury, play is a necessity" (Kay Redfield Jamison).
We aim to create a homely environment so that children will want to attend, to have fun and freedom of play choices. We feel this is important, as a school based setting, for the children to be able to distinguish between the structure of the school day and After School Club. We celebrate achievements and promote self-confidence and independence. We encourage children to have caring, respectful and excited attitudes. We provide opportunities for children to learn life skills, and believe in the importance of risk taking play, in creating a holistic approach to a child's development. We build co-operative partnerships with parents to encourage positive relationships.
