After School Care

Our Lady & St Joseph Catholic Primary School provides After School Care provision for up to 60 children (Y1 – Y6) and up to 24 children (EYFS). This service is invaluable to our school community.

Collection Procedure

After School Care starts at 3:30pm and finishes at 6:00pm.

When you are ready to collect your child, please call 07761 325206 (Y1 – Y6) and 07743 570104 (EYFS), and a member of staff will bring them to the main gate for you to sign out and collect them.

If you have children in both EYFS & Y1 – Y6 clubs, please call either number and ask for all children you are collecting.

Payment Terms

After School Care costs £5.00 per session. We recommend that payment is made a minimum of 2 days in advance and a credit balance is maintained at all times.

You must make a payment by the SCOPay app, as we are a cashless school.

Payments are required for all days booked even if the child does not attend, the exceptions being when school is closed/ the child is ill or cancel at least 2 days in advance. You will not be able to cancel bookings on the day of attendance.

Should the child no longer require a place the parent/carer is to advise the School office at least one week in advance, otherwise the parent/carer is still liable for charges. Should the parent/carer fall into arrears, the club will withdraw the child’s place.


During After School Care our children have the opportunity to read, complete their homework, play games and enjoy various sporting activities, supported by a team of high quality trained staff.

Each child attending After School Care receives a healthy snack. This helps them to boost their energy levels and keep them full until they get home for dinner.

Snacks include:

  • A choice of  sandwiches
  • A selection of fruits
  • A dessert such as a flapjack or cake
