Woodpeckers After-school Childcare

Welcome to the Woodpeckers After- School childcare page

Woodpeckers After-School Club offers childcare from 3 – 6pm, Monday to Thursday, throughout the school term. It has three members of staff on duty. Children can be collected any time before 6 pm.



The club meets in King's Hall, accessed for pick-up via the astro-turf gate.   From here the children have direct access to the playing field at the rear of the school, as well as various toys and outside play equipment,


Parents are encouraged to provide a snack, or if preferred, a packed tea - particularly for children staying until 6pm. Water bottles can be re-filled.                   



We recognise the importance of relaxing after a busy day at school.   The sessions are largely unstructured and child-led.  There is access to the library, use of the school’s computers, a stock of board games, craft-based activities and access to the outdoors with plenty of space to run around and use PE and ‘Huff and Puff’ equipment.



From 3.05 – 4pm - £5

From 3.05 – 5pm - £10

From 3.05 – 6pm - £15 


Payment for clubs are made in advance via our on-line system. We are able to accept child-care vouchers.



Bookings can be made for the whole academic year or term by term.   We can also accept bookings on an ad hoc basis if there are spaces available on the day.


If a child is collected more than 5 minutes after the scheduled closing time of after-school club (6pm) this will be discussed with the parent/carer and assurances gained about non-recurrence. School will not accept bookings from parents who persistently collect children late.



Our cancellation policy states:


  • bookings can be cancelled, without penalty, up to 1 calendar month in advance – so, for example, to cancel a place booked for 1 June we need notification by 1 May;
  • for cancellations received a full week in advance, (eg cancelling a Monday session must be received by the previous Monday) 50% of the full session fee may be charged;
  • un-cancelled places or sessions cancelled with less than one week’s notice will be charged at the full price.
