Projects in the pipeline:
New for 2018, we have secured some funding and training to be able to deliver two exciting projects aimed at strengthening parental involvement in their children's play. Pilot Play Project (led by Ben Kingley Hughes) is centred on developing an awareness of the importance of play with your children and Curiosity and Creating in a Digital World is aimed at incorporating the use of technology alongside play. As Tracey Brown for more details if this lights your fire.
Little Apples after-school club, have limited availability for 1 hour ad-hoc sessions @ £4.00 per hour. To book in please contact Tracey on 07708408701.
‘Little Apples’ After School Club is a separate organisation to the school. It is led by Tracey Brown, who is assisted by Claire Lamley (who also works in the school's Reception Class). It was awarded the highest Food Hygiene rating of 5 (April 2016) and has recently been accredited by OFSTED. From September 2016 it will be open until the later time of 6pm.
Tracey has worked with children for 24 years and has run a local nursery including an after school club for the last 11 years. She was aware of the local areas need for high quality after school provision and was extremely pleased when Mr Jenkinson agreed to allow her to set up Little Apples at Highgate Primary School.
Due to the time it takes for Ofsted to register new settings (and the need for care to be set up quickly), Little Apples will run for 2 hours per day (maximum allowed for unregistered settings) from 11th April 2016 whilst awaiting Ofsted registration. Once this has happened we will go to 3 hours per day. We will notify parents as soon as this is done.
The hourly rate will be £4.00 per hour and the session will be 3.10-6pm (after Ofsted registration). This includes the collection, activities/care and light tea.
Activities have included a range of craft activities, den building, gardening and a special water extravaganza (including a water slide).
There will be some provision for ‘as and when’ care, but we would need to take preference for a permanent booking.
If you are interested please call Tracey Brown on 07708408701 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
While the school does not organise the after school care, we will be happy to pass on details to parents so you can organise this to suit your needs.
