Extended Services: Before and After School
Before and After School Care
Busy Badgers Breakfast Club and Badgerbrook After School Club are run for us by an external provider. The clubs are extremely popular and places are in demand. Children do not have to attend every day to secure a place and occasional attendance can be arranged, subject to availability. Breakfast Club is open from 7.30am and the After School Club operates until 6.oopm.

In past years a summer holiday play scheme has been held on our premises, organised by our After School Club. Parents have been able to book places for their child on a weekly or daily basis. The club opens from 9.00am until 4.00pm. We hope to be able to provide similar facilities in the future.
In addition, we regularly advertise holiday schemes at other local venues.
These services provide wraparound and holiday childcare. Parents wishing to request additional wraparound and holiday childcare are asked to put their request in writing to the Headteacher during the Summer Term of each academic year. The request should be signed and dated and include :
- The type of childcare requested
- Age range of children requiring the care
- When provision is most needed
The school will log the requests and when the threshold of 30 requests within the term is reached the leadership team will gauge the level of interest and the practicality of providing additional childcare.
The Leicestershire Family Information Directory provides up to date information about the availability of local childcare.
From time to time we offer short courses for parents. In the past these have included Supporting your child with Literacy, Supporting your child with Numeracy, Positive Parenting and Holiday Spanish. Generally, these take place during the school day. Details will be published in the school newsletter.
This is a relatively new initiative from the local authority via government funding and has proved to be very successful. So far we have held a Family Learning Day on a Saturday morning. Parents and their children were able to try a variety of activities together, including digital photography, Spanish cooking, cartoon drawing, balloon modelling etc. We have also held two, six week courses for parents and children on computing and cooking.
