What We Do

Little Rascals Out Of School offers Breakfast and After School Club facilities for children in reception class to age eleven.

Working within the framework of OFSTED and the Early Years Foundation Stage, we are obliged to allocate a "key person" to all Reception age children. The "key person" will monitor the child's progress at the Club. This is designed to complement and enhance school records.

At all Club sites, Breakfast Club starts at 07:30 and the children will be taken to their classrooms for the morning bell. They will be collected from their classrooms for our afternoon sessions. Please note that our Cherry Tree School Club closes at 18:00. The Clubs located at Parkgate Junior School and Parkgate Infants School close at 18:30.

At Club the children are given breakfast or light tea and cared for in the safe, secure and closed access surroundings that the school premises offer until it is time to either go to school or their parent or guardian collects them from after school sessions. With dietary needs varying greatly for our children, from September 2018, they may also bring their own afternoon snacks only from home. Parents - please be mindful that some children at the Club may have food allergies and we therefore request that no nuts etc. be brought into any Club sessions.

Each afternoon we have half an hour of 'quite time'. This is designed to give children the chance to do their homework, read, do colouring or just sit quietly if they wish. The children do not particularly like this part of the session but their parents do! This takes place straight after their refreshments in order to allow their tea to go down.

We pride ourselves on being a Screen and Keyboard free zone. You will not find a television, DVD, Gameboy, Wii etc. at any Little Rascals Out Of School site. Your children come to our Clubs to play and interact with other children, not to sit down with a gadget!

All sessions are operated on weekdays during school term time only.
