We value community and meeting the needs of the families of Haigh Road Academy. After establishing there is a need for a ‘wrap-around’ childcare service, the school is proud to be able to offer a breakfast and after school club within a safe and secure environment, offering a range of activities based on the children’s interests. This wrap-around care provision is for the current children of Haigh Road before school and children of Haigh Road and Victoria Junior School after school term time only.
The clubs will be child centred, purposeful, playful and fun. You can find out about these clubs when they are released at the start of each term or click on the website links.
Our breakfast club, for Year One and Year Two children only, runs from 7.45am to 8.40am, Monday to Friday. The club will be fully supervised, providing a safe and fun start to the day which includes indoor activities, games and reading. There will be a choice of breakfast cereals, toast and fruit for your child/children to enjoy plus a drink each day.
After School Care
Our Key Stage One/Key Stage Two after school club runs from 3.10pm to 6pm, Monday to Friday.
The club will be fully supervised and the children will be encouraged to have fun through play based activities. Haigh Road children may attend curricular after school clubs and then the wraparound provision. We are not able to collect Victoria children from after school clubs.
The Early Years after school club runs from 3.10 to 5.30pm Monday to Friday. Miss Naylor and Mrs Hall both hold EYFS level 3 qualifications and work in the early years at Haigh Road during the school day. They are responsible for the day to day care of the children after school, under the guidance of Mrs Padgett. Staff plan and facilitate open ended experiences and learning and play opportunities that the children will enjoy and that are in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage statutory requirements. For assessment, they will report back to the Nursery and reception class teachers and this will help to form individual targets.
The after school club is lucky enough to be able to take full advantage of the whole school environment, including the playground, field and trim trail. The children are free to choose from a selection of both planned and unplanned activities which enhances their learning, and resources will be readily available.
We recognise the importance of healthy eating; the children will sit down to a healthy snack around 5pm. A variety of sandwiches, crumpets, tea cakes, rice cakes, yoghurts, fruit and raw vegetables will be provided at this time. Baked beans on toast and soup will also be included on our menu at certain times.
