AFTER SCHOOL CLUB

Our After School Club is based in it's own room and offers care for children in both Key Stage 1 and 2. All the children who attend Dots n Spots are also able to use our Wellbeing room and resources.  Within our Club room we offer a wide range of activities; a games area comprising of sofas and beanbags with a television, DVD player and games consoles, allowing children time to relax and re-energise after their day at school. The homework and construction/table top area encourages children to complete any necessary homework, should the children wish to do so. The arts and crafts area enables children to express their creative side and work on long term projects of their choice.

We have a well-equipped outdoor play space, this includes a range of activities such as; water and messy play trays, sandpit, bikes, wooden climbing frame, digging are and much more, allowing children to let off any 'reserved energy'.
