Wrap Around Care
Update - 'After the Bell'
WRAP AROUND CARE
Some exciting news to share!
This week we finally secured staffing for our own wrap around care.
The provision will start after the half term on Tuesday 2nd November 2021, at first it will be temporary until the end of the school year when the Governors and I can assess its viability in order for us to continue to keep it running.
We are extremely excited about starting this new venture and our new manager is more than enthusiastic about making this work and ensuring we provide care of a high standard whilst playing a vital part of our school offer to our school community.
The priority for our wrap around care is the same as in school - to ensure your children feel safe and happy whilst experiencing lots of exciting learning opportunities. As we own and manage it, it will reflect all the policies and procedures that we have in school.
Ms Naylor, our new manager, is coming in to school on Monday to meet with me and begin to organise and set up of our new offer. She will then send a letter out next week inviting those that are interested to join us at a meeting during the week beginning the 18th October. At this meeting Mrs Naylor will explain the terms and conditions, the booking procedures, the phone number to contact her on and how the club will run.
School breakfast club
As we return we will begin our school breakfast club. At the moment we are still trying to appoint staff in order to provide full wrap around care but I will keep you informed as soon as we are able to provide this provision. The school breakfast club will begin at 8.20am, children will only be allowed in from 8.20am – do not drop your child outside and leave as there will be no one responsible for them. The cost is £3.00 each day including a snack, a piece of fruit and water or milk and this must be paid in advance of the session.
You can search for child care on the Live Well Cheshire West website Home | Live Well Cheshire West (cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk) on the home under ‘search for local information or support’ you can search for things such as childminders, private day nurseries as some provide wrap around care, and it will bring up a list (you can set geographical areas too).
Please be reassured that we are trying our utmost to secure provision at Witton Church Walk imminently and we will update you in due course
