Before & After School - Infant
At HTPD, we pride ourselves on providing high quality, flexible breakfast and after school clubs providing wrap around care from 8.00am to 6.00pm. We are very fortunate to have so many dedicated teachers generously offering their free time to run free after school clubs most, but not all, weeks of the term.
Breakfast Club at the Infant site runs from 8.00am and includes breakfast. The cost for this is £4.00 and pre-booking is preferred. Early drop off is available from 8.25am and costs £1.00 per session.
PUPS - After School Club
PUPS after school club is a play setting that is based on the sector’s playwork principles. We create a happy and secure environment for all the children to play and develop with the opportunity to play outside every day. We operate from the school hall Monday to Friday from 3.00pm to 6.00 pm during term-time. We occasionally register in Willow class if the hall is being used by a teacher led club. Planning of activities and day to day running of the club are handled by our excellent team of childcare professionals. We can accommodate up to 32 children per session and over half of the Infant children use PUPS.
Pre-booking for PUPS is essential as places are limited each day. Please email Sam Andrews on email@example.com to register your child and book sessions. You can pre-book sessions for the full week, once a week or occasionally just when you need us. Places for any given day are subject to availability.
If you find that you no longer need to use booked session (e.g. change in arrangements or illness), please let Sam know as soon as possible. If you do this with more than 24 hours notice, you won’t be charged for the session. If we do not have 24 hours notice or any notice, you will be charged unless we are able to fill the space on the day.
There are 2 sessions per afternoon. The first sessions runs from 3.00–4.30pm and costs £5.50 per day which includes a healthy snack. The second session runs from 4.30pm to 6.00pm and costs £4.50. Please note that if your child is going to a teacher lead or external club which finishes at 4.00pm, you need to book in for both sessions so that we can ensure that there is adequate staffing for the afternoon. Parents are requested to collect their children by 6.00pm. In the event of an unexpected delay, e.g. traffic, please do contact Sam on 07742 292 097 as soon as possible so that arrangements can be made for cover. Late collections are charged at £10 per 30 minutes.
The best way to contact us is by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by telephone 07742 292 097 between 3.00 and 6.00pm, or by leaving a message in the Pups communication book.
Childcare at Breakfast Club and Clubs Plus is charged as this is unsubsidised and staff are paid. Parents are invoiced monthly in arrears for attendance at Breakfast Club and PUPS. We accept cheques, cash and childcare vouchers. Should you have any queries, please contact Bev Reed on email@example.com. Please pay your invoices promptly and if you are experiencing any difficulties, please contact the School Business Manager, Bev Reed, in confidence.
Teacher Led Clubs
Teacher led clubs start at 3.00pm and end at 4.00. At the Infant Site, children in year 1 and 2 are invited to apply for 1 teacher-club (free) a week and they usually start in the 3rd week of the term and finish 2 weeks before the end of the term.
There is always a wide choice on offer, and children will be able to choose from a list. The range changes each term depending on the season and what staff are able to offer. There is no charge for teacher-led clubs.
There are also clubs run by external people on the Infant site and there is normally a charge for these. Please liaise with the individual club organiser for all administrative details.
