Out of School Club

The main aim of the Out of School Club at Kings Priory School is to create a partnership between children, parents and staff which assists and encourages the development of the children within its care in a ‘home from home’ environment.

We aim to provide:

  • Outstanding childcare for children in an out of school setting. Children can feel at home in a secure environment that is safe, stimulating and friendly, where they can relax and enjoy a variety of activities.

  • We are committed to setting a good example by showing the children and each other respect, kindness and co-operation at all times.

  • We are committed to making sure that all children are treated fairly and equally, providing the same play and learning opportunities for everyone

The club is based within the First School. It is open weekdays during term time and we also offer holiday care during February, Easter (selected dates), May, Summer Holidays (selected dates), October and Inset Days.

  • Term time - 7:30am until 6:00pm

  • Holidays and Inset Days - 8:00am until 6:00pm

The club is available to all children who attend Kings Priory School from Reception to Year 8. We also welcome external pupils to our holiday clubs. Prices are reviewed annually.

Kings Priory Out of School Club employs ten staff. We liaise closely with the school in order to ensure continuity of care, and to maintain good communication links.

Communicating with Out of School Club

As part of our ongoing commitment to provide the best possible provision at Kings Priory School Out of School Club, I would like to take this opportunity to clarify a few procedures which should help to further improve communication between the Out of School Club (OOSC) and home.

 

Contact to OOSC via Email:

When trying to contact us regarding your child, please ensure that all emails are directed through the following email address and not sent directly to a member of staff, as detailed below:

Out of School Club:              oosc@kps.woodard.co.uk

This will enable all emails to be dealt with efficiently and in the absence of an individual member of staff ensure that your query is dealt with as swiftly as possible. Staff do not have constant access to emails due to the hours they work but if you require a last minute place however therefore, is the most efficient way to get a message to the OOSC.

 

Contact to OOSC via Telephone:

When telephoning the Out of School Club, the quickest way to reach the most appropriate person is through the number below NOT the school telephone line:

Out of School Club:

0191 2589155

Out of School Club Mobile: 07825 265700 (used during the holidays for emergency contact only)

 

Contact to OOSC via our Reception:

Parents are most welcome to call in at the OOSC reception to leave a message or discuss a brief item; however, meetings should be by appointment only. If a meeting is necessary after following all other lines of communication, an appointment will be provided by the OOSC. The OOSC will assign the most appropriate person to deal with your query; however, in the case of an absolute emergency please inform the OOSC staff of the concern and they will endeavour to contact the relevant member of staff.

 

Meetings in OOSC:

In the event that these lines of communication have not resolved your query or concern and you would like to meet with a member of staff in person, please let us know by using one of the above contact methods. Kings Priory School Out of School Club will endeavour to set up a meeting as soon as mutually convenient.

Members of staff aren’t often available during the course of a school day and therefore we are unable to guarantee that a meeting will happen on the first day of request, unless of course we consider that there is urgent need. In order for us to determine who is the most appropriate person for you to speak to regarding your query it will be necessary for you to convey some detail of your reason to meet OOSC staff.

The Out of School Club will decide who that member of staff would be and will advise you accordingly. It is important that we work through our staffing model, as detailed below, in order to address your needs and those of your son or daughter as well as the OOSC, so it may not always be the person you request that meets with you. In the unusual circumstance where a member of staff is unable to answer your query at the time of your meeting, they will refer your request to an alternative member of staff who will be able to assist and will contact you with an outcome at a later, suitably convenient time. It is possible that this may be the same person. I am sure it is understood that staff with particular responsibilities and expertise will initially make contact to resolve any concerns prior to them being escalated.
