  • Indoor craft activity
  • Board and card games
  • Role play activities

Stay ‘n’ Play After School Club

The club provides a safe, secure and happy environment for children to relax, play and have fun. A range of activities for all ages will be available, both in and outdoors (subject to the weather). There will also be an area for children to do their homework, if they wish, and staff will provide support as they are able. The children make choices about which activities they would like to do and how they spend their time with us.
The club is available to children attending Great Leighs Primary School. The children will be cared for by experienced staff and the adult to child ratio will be 1:8.


Before a child can be admitted to the after school club we require the enclosed registration form and permission slips to be returned duly completed. Please ensure all sections are completed and details of any dietary requirements are included on the registration form.


The club will open Monday to Fridays during term time from 3:10pm to 6:00pm, with the exception of Bank Holidays and non-pupil days.


For those children attending a light tea will be provided.  The club will follow the schools Healthy Eating Policy. Special diets can be catered for on request.


The cost of a session will be £9.00. Payment of fees will be in advance, payable on booking through ParentMail’s Payments and the first month’s fee must be paid when registering your child and prior to them starting.  Fees are not refundable if your child is absent from the club for any reason or in the event of bad weather or any other circumstances that result in early closure of the club.
Please note that if your child is collected late there will normally be a charge of £5.00 per 15 minutes, which will be invoiced separately and must be paid promptly.  Fees are reviewed annually in the Summer Term.


In the event that you need to cancel a pre-booked session, at least 24 hours notice is required, and if your child is attending the club on a Monday then we need to know the Friday before.  Once sufficient notice has been received, your credit will roll over to another session.  Failure to give enough notice will result in you being charged for the session. This is due to having to employ another member of staff when the numbers go over the required amount (adult to child ratio).
