Before & After School Care
The extended schools provision at Curwen is fully embedded into the whole school ethos of TEAM and RESPECT and is an integral part of the school’s future direction.
Our extended schools objectives are:
- To increase our children’s feeling of wellbeing leading to improved attendance, motivation, attitude and attainment.
- To improve our parents engagement with their children’s learning and with our school.
- To increase personalised learning to meet the needs of our children and their families thus allowing our entire community to have more opportunities to achieve personal goals.
Over the past five years we have developed from having one year six football club a week to now having over thirty weekly clubs including before and after school sessions, lunchtime groups and family learning sessions. The children are given the choice of breakfast club, sports clubs, performing arts groups, study support sessions and family groups where the entire family are welcome to attend together. Along with this expansion we have witnessed a significant improvement in our end of Key Stage 2 results, a decrease in incidents of unacceptable behaviour (within the classroom and in the playground) and an increase in parental involvement within our school.
We also provide a successful Breakfast Club which runs from 8 o’clock. The charge is 60p, and for this your child can have a choice of cereal, toast with jam or beans, fruit. This is supported with the help of funding from outside providers.
We are continuing to monitor our extended schools provision to ensure it fully meets the needs of our whole school learning community.
6 O’CLOCK CLUB
The school has an after school club that is run by members of our staff. This runs from 3:15 to 6pm and offers a wide range of activities for your child to take part in and includes a snack.
If you would like more information, please ask for a leaflet at the office. You can also register your child by speaking to Mrs Miles or Mr Teodor Ion.
Places for 6 O’Clock Club are allocated each week on a Friday afternoon. Would all parents please note that if places have not been booked through the school office by Friday or Monday morning, your child will not have a place for the following week. This rule will be strictly adhered to at all times.
