Wrap-around Childcare: The Phoenix Club

‘Pupils who attend that Phoenix before and after school club benefit from healthy food and well organised activities, and socialise well together’

OfSTED Report, February 2014

Phoenix is the name of our Out-of-School club for 4-11 year olds. It is situated in a purpose built facility for wrap-around child care in the school grounds.

The club provides wrap-around care for up to 30 children from 7.45am—8.45am and 3.15pm—6pm each day during term time.

The aim of the club is to create a relaxed atmosphere before and after school focused on play and leisure. The children experience a change of environment whilst in the club, even though they are still in the school grounds. The club is managed by the school governors and run by a dedicated team of play leaders and supervisors who ensure that there is something of interest for all ages and preferences.

If you are interested in finding out more or would like to make a visit please telephone the school business manager, Sue Jordan on 01480 463398 or contact the Phoenix Play Leader, Marianne Brock on 07505556921

Holiday Childcare

Unfortunately the school is no longer able to provide childcare during school holidays as the number of places taken up does not cover the costs of running the provision safely in terms of staffing levels. Parents who need child care during the school holiday can find out more information about local child care services by visiting this link http://www4.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/site/custom_scripts/fid/fid_results.aspx?t=1  and narrowing the search to holiday clubs in Huntingdon area for children (childcare).
