Before & After School Club
Before & After School Club
Before & After School Club runs daily during term time; we provide wrap around care for children between the ages of 4-11 who attend Bishop Wilson CE Primary School. The fees are variable depending on number of days and length of time required (see below) - all payments must be made in advance via ParentPay. Please note that we are not able to offer credit. If debts are accrued, your child's place may be withdrawn until any outstanding monies are paid.
Timings: We are open at 7.30am and parents can choose to bring their children from 7.30am or 8am. Children will have a choice of breakfasts and activities, then we will take them to class in time for registration at the beginning of the school day.
We are delighted to now also be able to offer sessions in the afternoon as follows:
The afternoon club will follow a similar format; children will be given a drink and a small snack (e.g. biscuits, fruit) and a range of activities after school. If you would like your child to stay for the later session, a light teatime snack will be offered (see example menus).

Important Information for your Child
Please ensure you keep school up to date with any allergy, dietary or health care changes for your child.
Admission to Breakfast Club
The club is fully inclusive for all children. There are limited places available and are allocated on a first come, first serve basis. We do not currently have a waiting list but should the need arise, places will be allocated in the following order of priority:
- Siblings of children already attending the club
- Those requiring the greatest number of sessions/hours per week. You do need to pre-book sessions and can attend on the days they wish.
Booking and Payment Procedure
Before & After School Club fees are charged per child per session. All fees must be paid for in advance.
To attend Before & After School Club, parents must complete a registration form for each child. Once this form has been received, a child can attend the club the next school day. If a child attends a session without paying, the school will contact parents requesting the debt is settled before their child returns to the club. Failure to make payment may result in a child's place being withdrawn.
Temporary bookings: We will accept temporary or occasional bookings as long as there are places available.
Before & After School Club follows the School's Behaviour Policy to ensure consistency for children at the club. Consistently poor behaviour may result in a child's place being withdrawn.
Each child is encouraged to make their own choices regarding the activities they choose to participate in. In keeping with the Play Values, Before & After School Club offers structured adult-led activities as well as free choice.
