Lodge

At Castle Cary School we provide a Breakfast Club and an After School club collectively known as The Hive. This is open to all primary aged children from any school. All sessions are held in our separate building, The Lodge, which has its own kitchen and cloakroom facilities. All our supervisors are fully trained and experienced.

The senior supervisor, Tracey Higgins manages the After School Club and the Breakfast Club is managed by Sally Francis. A rota of staff are on duty each day.

Breakfast Club

It runs from 8.00am – 8.50am each school day morning. The children have breakfast and are looked after until they are taken to their classrooms at 8.50am. 

Breakfast Club cost:  £3.50

After School Club

This runs from 3.20 until 6.00pm each school day evening. The children are picked up from their classes and taken to the Lodge where they have a light tea. There is a variety of planned activities each week and free play opportunities. The programme is predominantly child-led with activities ranging from outdoor sports, forest school, craft, games and cooking. We sometimes have visitors who bring other skills. For example The Bee Man or a sports coach.

 

After school care costs:

Silver 'half hour' (3:20pm- 3:50pm)  £2.50

Golden hour (3:20pm- 4:20pm)-      £4.50

Full session-                                    £7.00

The Hive sessions are usually booked in advance but we are very happy to look after children at very short notice – for example on busy Christmas shopping days! If you wish your child to go to The Hive just phone school or The Hive phone anytime up until 3.20 on the day.
