Bayston Hill After-school and Holiday Club

We are a community based group operational since 1999; we are also open to children who do not attend Oakmeadow CE Primary & Nursery School. We have an excellent partnership with school which has a very positive impact on children’s daily experiences. Offering flexible childcare that fits in with your life whether it’s one off use, shift work patterns and regular sessions. We are registered with Ofsted for up to 48 children, with a 1:8 ratio for under 8’s. Our staff members are qualified. They also work in school enabling a close bond with the children in our care. We open 5 days a week, 48 weeks of the year, closing for Christmas, middle 2 weeks of summer and bank holidays. Term time sessions finish at 5.45pm. Holiday sessions start at 8.30am and finish at 5.45pm; other start and finish times are available.

We offer sibling discount and session prices include a healthy snack. For booking information please see booking forms attached below.

The children enjoy the mixed age ranges from EYFS to Yr6+ and interact well with each other. They choose from a range of activities including art & craft, games, ICT, sports, small world play and role play. The children are given opportunities to complete their homework or access Time Tables Rock Stars with staff support.

Highlights from our last Ofsted inspection 23/9/16 rated Good:

  • Children are highly motivated, engaged and think critically. Staff plan meaningful and relevant experiences that enable children to learn about people who live in the village and celebrations from around the world and children’s understanding of good health is promoted in meaningful ways, fostering children’s curiosity and imagination. The range of toys and resources available for the children to use, match their interests and ages.
  • Children are confident and are sensitive to their friends’ feelings and staff skilfully promote children’s self-esteem. The staff are sensitive and reassuring towards children’s worries and in turn children have warm and close bonds, and feel able to seek comfort from them when needed.
  • Partnership working with the school is excellent and has a very positive impact on children’s daily experiences. Therefore the team provides activities and experiences that build on children’s learning in school extremely well.
  • Staff demonstrate excellent skills in managing children’s behaviour and promoting their welfare and personal development. Children are responsible and very well behaved. The promotion of children’s safety is outstanding and children have an excellent awareness of how to keep themselves safe in different situations.
