Avondale officially welcomes children on site from 8am each morning, but there is a great deal of flexibility for accommodating children earlier than this, should parents have an earlier start to the day themselves.
Part of Avondale’s character is borne out of the way our older children support the younger ones; in this respect all children play outside together in the mornings until registration at 8:30am.
Nursery and Tots, officially finish at 3pm for those accessing Free Entitlement Funding. Children staying on, are provided for in our After School Care Club, which sees our older children join at 3:20pm, when their school day finishes.
After School Care Club is charged at £3 per half hour, or part thereof (one hour minimum). There is a 5% discount on fees for families with two children and a 20% discount on fees for families with three children.
ASCC runs until 5.30pm daily with scope for extending this, should parents be running late. The children are given a substantial afternoon tea, and enjoy outdoor play, indoor games, art activities and computer games. Some of the older children also have the opportunity to start their home learning or participate in teacher- led clubs ranging from sports to choir. Whilst teacher- led clubs are charged at the same rate as the ASCC, we wish to develop further our school sporting teams and choir performances- subsequently, these clubs are free of charge. The clubs available, the age group involved and the days the clubs take place are dependent on staffing – details of these are sent out each term in our calendar.
Please be aware that sports activities are weather dependent and may need to be cancelled in the event of bad weather – if necessary, please telephone after 2pm to check if clubs are running. We shall do our best to communicate with you via text message.
