After school club at PAWS

A bit more fun before the day is done

As part of our wraparound care, we want to provide a home from home – until it really is time to go home.

Back across the school yard and into PAWS, after school club is a chance to squeeze a bit more out of the day while you wrap up your own commitments. Whether you need an extra hour to beat the traffic home or a chance to put in a full day’s work, we will keep kids entertained until they are ready to drop!

We usually run a scheduled programme of after school activities, including crafts, sports, nature club, cookery and a movie night – sometimes a sell-out!  Some children stay at after school club simply for the chance to play and mix with their friends and other children from across the school.   It can be tricky to schedule extracurricular activities, and after school club is a seamless transition.

Opening times

3pm is after school club!

Our after school club starts at 3:00pm and finishes at 5:30pm.

You can choose to pick your child up by 4:15pm for half the cost of the full session.

Sports

The fabulously sporty team here at PAWS, and our skilled volunteers/instructors provide a variety of sports, including football, netball, tennis, cricket, gymnastics, dance, basketball and athletics – tailored to the skill level of each child.

Games

Whether indoors or out, games night is a fun packed session. Traditional school yard games include  hop scotch, hide and seek, and skipping, to name a few. And we have a wide range of board games such as chess, Twister, Hungry Hippos, cards and dominoes.

Art & Craft

Always popular, these sessions include painting, drawing, clay modelling, sewing, knitting and origami. Prepare to have some wonderful creations to take home!

Cookery

We love to cook up a storm in the kitchen, teaching important life skills and a chance to explore lots of different culinary delights!

Nature club

We LOVE nature club! Exploring the seasons, getting muddy and running wild! Bug dens, little people dens, gardening, climbing trees, looking at wildlife and their habitat and protecting the creatures on our doorstep.

Movie nights

Our night at the movies is always a highlight. Let’s kick off our shoes, get comfy and break out the popcorn. A rare chance to relax with friends and lose ourselves in a great film.  

Fun activities

Something for every child

Every term we publish a schedule of after club activities. Many families book in advance for their favourite. Sometimes we invite expert third parties in to deliver the sessions, sometimes we deliver activities ourselves.

Rest assured, if your child is not keen on the scheduled activity, we will make sure they still have a fun and active session doing something more up their street.
