Owls Club


Owls afterschool Club runs in the KS2 building every afternoon between 3:15pm and 6pm (except on the last day of term when the school closes at 1:30pm).

We cater for children from Reception to Year 6. We use the KS2 dining hall, KS2 main hall, our own den as well as the playgrounds and field when the weather allows. 

Children are collected from Reception and KS1 (year 1 and 2) while KS2 children report directly to the Club after school.

Children who have signed up to other clubs during the afternoon are collected and returned to Owls.

All Owls staff members are DBS checked and have undertaken Level 1 Safeguarding Children training. Staff Profiles which include training can be found by following the link on the left of this page.

Links in the timetable below will take you to further information regarding the tea menu and planned activities.
