Wrap Around Care
Working parents are being given a helping hand juggling the work life balance at Pytchley Primary School. Children have settled well into the new school year which brings with it new faces, new experiences and wrap around childcare!
Pupils can start the day on a full stomach by attending the school’s breakfast club from 7:50am – 8:40am and later attend an after school club including homework club, cooking club, dance or football, until 4:30pm or opt for school childcare on offer from 3:30pm to 6:00pm five days a week.
School bursar, Helen Osborne, said: “Our ‘Wrap Around Care’ runs Monday to Friday from 3:30pm – 6:00pm in addition to the normal activity clubs we have on offer.
“Children will have planned activities during the session with a hot or cold snack around 5:00pm. We are able to offer some ad-hoc places if needed.”
A parent whose two children attend wrap around care and breakfast club a couple of times a week, has been able to return to work as a PR account manager.
She said: "The set up at Pytchley is fantastic and good value. I can go off to work in the morning knowing my children will start the day on a full stomach and be well looked after until I return to pick them up after work. They love attending wrap around and if they're happy I'm happy."
