FUN-ZONE (Our After school club)
At Barrowford St Thomas, we believe that the care of pupils doesn’t stop at 3.15pm. We are fortunate to have the facility of on site before and after school care with a club (Funzone). The club is run by the school staff, all of whom are employed by the school as teaching assistants.
The club runs from Monday to Thursday from the end of school until 5.30pm and Friday from the end of the school day until 4.15pm.Whilst not all parents will wish to use these facilities, it does help to provide peace of mind for those parents that do need such arrangements, knowing that there is continuity of care for their child.
Earlybird until 4.15pm £4.50
Full session until 5.30pm £8
Parents need to book their child's place at our after-school club utilising the Scopay system and pay via Parentpay. The Scopay system does not allow parents to book a place on the day, therefore, places need to be booked in advance. We can offer a place on the day if it is an emergency situation, and this can be done (if the club is not already full) by ringing the school. We do reiterate that this must be an emergency as our staff will have planned for the number of children booked into the club, prior to this day.
The club is run by our teaching assistants, Miss Slater (currently on maternity leave) and Mrs Ratcliffe. Miss Nickson (from Reed LTA supply) is covering Miss Slater's maternity leave and is an experienced after-school club manager.
The children can stay for half a session until 4.15 or stay for the full session which includes a snack and drink.
We have many resources for the children to use.
