Before/After School Clubs - wrap around childcare

Danesholme Infant and Junior Academy’s Breakfast & After School Club is committed to working in partnership with parents and carers to provide safe, stimulating and enjoyable childcare for children who attend the Danesholme Academies. 

At present, Breakfast and After School Club is only available to children in Reception to Year 6.

The club is run by suitably qualified staff who are employed by the Greenwood Academies Trust. Overall management of the club is by the Executive Principal of the Academy.

Breakfast and After School Club is held in the School Hall at Danesholme Junior Academy. The club also has access to the Academy’s facilities, such as the playground, field, and ICT suite.

The registration form must be completed before you can use the provision, It also acts as an agreement to our terms and conditions (see below).  Payment will also need to be paid via our online Parent Pay portal.

If we cannot offer a space we can place your child to a waiting list.

Breakfast club is from 8:00am to 8:30am. Breakfast is served between 8:00am and 8:15am. Children are taken to their classes at 8:30am.

After School club runs from 3:10pm to 6:00pm.  Infant Academy children will be collected from their classrooms and walked to the juniors. A snack is served to the children at about 4:00pm.

Afterschool Club – £6.00 till 5pm or £8.00 till 6pm (inc snack)

Sessions are loaded onto ParentPay for you to pay at your convenience. However failure to keep up with payments will mean that your child’s place may be withdrawn with immediate effect until your account is brought up to date.

Once you have booked sessions full fees are payable even if your child is absent due to illness etc. No refunds will be given for cancellations other than in exceptional circumstance and by agreement with the Principal.

Any alterations to bookings will need to be advised in writing at least a month in advance.

After School Club revised hours from April 2022 

After the Easter holidays the club will now close at 5:30pm each day instead of 6pm.

Currently, we very rarely have any children staying beyond 5:30pm, but we are still paying staff and covering other overheads until 6pm.

There will also be a change to the pricing as a result.

Sessions paid until 5pm each day will still be charged at £6 per session

Sessions paid until 5:30pm each day will be charged at £7 per session

These changes will be made for bookings after Easter. Thankyou - Mrs Lamond
