What We Offer
Since September 2015 we have moved from the mobile classroom in to the school building and operate via a separate entrance/exit. This has enabled us to cater for more children and accomodate the increasing numbers that the school is currently taking.
The children are welcomed by 'The Zone' staff in a morning from 7.30am (pre-booked) or 7.45am (usual opening time) who offer a range of breakfast choices including toast with a variety of toppings, croissants, cereals and fruit. We also offer orange juice, milk or water.
After breakfast the children have many choices of play such as watching a film, playing on the game console, reading, arts and crafts role play or even chillout before the school day begins. They can even have a go on the pool or football tables.
At 8.30am it is tidy up time. The children are then asked to to collect coats and bags where a register is taken again for the juniors and infants. The juniors are led downstairs to the playground at 8.45am where members of our staff will stay with them until school begins. The infants are then asked to get their coats and bags where a register is taken and the children are taken downstairs at 8.50 directly to the classrooms.
After-school the junior pupils are met by two members of 'The Zone' staff in the Learning Zone area of school who register them and lead them into 'The Zone'. All infant pupils are collected from their classrooms by two/three members of 'The Zone' staff.
We are also able to collect from school clubs. A member of staff (usually Jenny Brullo) will collect children from the learning zone at 4.15. A register will be taken and the children are then led back to the Zone where snack will be provided.
We have a varied snack menu with a treat night once a week and this will be rotated so that all children get the chance to have a treat!
We are very proud of our new 'home'! It is spacious and allows us as a provision to offer much more. We have a downstairs 'active' area where the children can play snooker/pool or table football. They can get creative with Art and Craft activities, play with the construction equipment or join in with the Role Play areas. Upstairs we offer a comfy, quietier area for reading, writing or watching TV/DVDs. We also have a separate dining and kitchen area where the children are offered breakfast in a morning and a snack after school. Along with our facilities we also have the opportunity to use the school halls, Learning Zone and Computers, Cookery Room plus use the extensive playground and field if the weather is fine.
The children are very much involved in everything we do. They come up with a range of themes that we follow, have a say in the menu and help to plan the activties that will run alongside.
The Zone really is the place to be before and after-school!
