We recognise that many of you need affordable childcare to allow you to work. We offer a breakfast club and after school childcare. If you are interested in using this service, please book your child’s place using the online forms.
At Acorns, we want the children to have the chance to play, relax, socialise and possibly spend some time reading and using the learning software available in school. Your child's enjoyment, care and safety are our main concerns. Please note that all our staff are suitably trained and DBS checked. Acorns is based in the Wildflower building. We will ensure there are a range of activities on different days based on the interests and ages of the different children.
Parents should drop off and collect their children from the external door near the reading shed on the playground.
Food and Drink
Breakfast club - Breakfast will be provided: e.g. cereal, fruit, milk and squash until 8.15am.
After school childcare - A healthy finger food tea will be served at 4.30pm. This will be sufficient to keep the children going but we do not recommend that it replaces an evening meal.
Please note that all our staff are suitably trained and DBS checked.
7.30am – 8.30am £4 per session (£2 per session for FSM eligible children)
After School Childcare
After School Childcare 3.15-4.30pm £6.00 per session, including drink and a biscuit.
After School Childcare 3.15-5.30pm £10.00 per session, including a light tea.
Late Collections: A charge of £1 per minute will be incurred to cover the staff's overtime costs.
Places can be booked via the Google forms and payment will be invoiced via Arbor. All fees should be paid in advance including voucher and government payments. We ask that debt is not allowed to accrue as this is often difficult to pay off and may result in your child's place being withdrawn.
If your child attends the after school childcare they can attend any of the internal after school clubs free of charge if there is a space and the club is age appropriate. We will book them for you if they would like to go.
We do not provide wraparound childcare for children that attend nursery.
More than 4 weeks’ notice: No charge
Less than 4 weeks’ notice: Full fees will be charged
Sessions missed due to illness, sport club attendance, or other reasons will not be refunded.
If the school is forced to close e.g. due to snow or a power cut, the fee will be credited to you.
