Best Friends After School Club aims to promote learning through play and acquiring new skills and interests while providing a fun and relaxing environment. The Best Friends After School Club currently caters for Reception children only but as the school grows so too will the age groups and the range of activities available. The Best Friends Club operates from Monday to Friday 4.00-6.30pm term time only.
The Best Friends After School Club will be based primarily in the Reception classes area. This location allows easy access to the playground and field for outdoor activities and collection by parents or carers. The available spaces enable children to choose from a variety of different activities including outdoor sports and games, arts and crafts and quieter activities.
During their time at Best Friends After School Club the children will be offered a range of snacks such as sandwiches, toasties or toast with options such as cheese, chicken or jam. Fruit and vegetables will also be available for the children. Low sugar drinks and water will be freely accessible. Once again please let any special dietary requirements known on the registration documents.
In addition to Best Friends After School Club the teachers from the Samuel Ryder Academy will also be running a wide range of activities from the end of the school day until 4.00pm. At 4.00pm parents will have the choice to collect their children or to enrol them in Best Friends After School Club.
