Windmill After School Club
The Windmill After School Club runs every day after school during term time and is managed by volunteer parents whose children attend the Club
Due to our popularity, OfSTED agreed to us expanding our Club in September 2011 to allow us to accommodate another 20 children.
We expanded yet again in November 2015 when the new building was completed and we now accommodate up to 90 children per day
Our Club 1 is run in it's own special secure room located near the Year 5/ 6 classrooms. Our Club 2 is run in the room opposite the school library and Club 3 is run in the gym.
The WASC was set up to provide high quality, hassle-free childcare for working Windmill parents as well as parents who are studying. However, although on school premises, the club remains independent of the school.
Our Club employs highly qualified, experienced play workers who are there to join in the fun and to make sure every child is happy and well looked after. Children can choose to create, draw, paint, stick, read or simply play with their friends.
Although we are not a 'homework' club, we encourage children to finish work set if they wish.
The Club offers:
- OfSTED registered and approved as 'Outstanding'
- Friendly, experienced, caring staff
- A 'key worker' for Early Years children
- Younger children collected from their classrooms
- Snacks, fruit and drinks provided in keeping with the school's healthy eating policy
