Out of School Clubs

Out of School Clubs

Brambles has well-established out of school clubs. We can take up to 40 children for each session before and after school.

Session times

7:45 am or 8:00 am to 8:45 am

3:00 pm to 5:00 pm (3:30pm – 5:00 pm from Sept 2024)

3:00 pm to 6:00 pm (3:30pm – 6:00 pm from Sept 2024)

Plans for each week are on display and these are topic based. If you would like more information, please see a member of staff.

If your child is coming before school, please bring everything they will need for school plus their lunch (if required). If you have a message for school, we are very happy to pass it on to a member of staff.

If your child is coming in after school, please ensure that you have provided your child with a snack. Staff members are available at school (during drop-off) to collect snack boxes.

If your child is unwell, please phone to let us know as soon as possible (01926 854 486). You will still be charged for unattended sessions. If your child has suffered sickness, diarrhoea, or a fever, please do not bring them to school for at least 48 hours. We run the same infection control policy as Thorns.

Daily Routine

Breakfast Club

The club opens its doors at 7:45 am to welcome children and their parents. We have a wide range of activities set up for the children to play with, including arts and crafts, games, puzzles, and role play. We also have a quiet area. We escort the children to school at 8:45 am, take them to their classroom, and pass on any messages from parents to the staff at Thorns.

After School Club

Brambles staff collect the children from Thorns at 3.00pm. Reception children are collected from their classroom. Years 1 and 2 are sent to meet us in the hall.

We take the register and talk to the children about their day whilst handing out any letters or art work. Children then go outside to the playground and play with a wide range of outdoor toys. We stay outside until around 4:00 pm (weather permitting) and then we have a snack. We ask parents to provide a small snack for their child, which is stored in the fridge.

After snack-time, we have a wide range of activities for the children to enjoy (including art and craft, games, puzzles, quiet area, role play, television, computers, and an adult directed activity). We also have a Nintendo Wii (usage is limited). We ask the children to get involved in our planning and use their ideas (when possible).

At 5.30 pm, the children are encouraged to help tidy up.
