Bourn Primary Academy

Bourn Primary Academy is home to one of our after school clubs, managed by our Play Leader, Maisie, and her fantastic team of passionate play workers.

We offer an after school club for children attending Bourn CofE Primary School on the school site. We also run a holiday club from Meridian Primary School, which Bourn CofE Primary School children are also welcome to attend. We are located in the school art room and main hall but the children have free access to all these areas and can freely choose a range of toys and equipment. Our team are always there to supervise and make sure they can make the most of their time with us. We also offer planned activities and themed clubs to give the children options and choice which we feel is important.

The After School Club

After School Club operates from the end of the School day to either 4:30pm or 6pm, Key Stage 1 children will be collected from their classrooms by a playworker and key stage 2 children will be expected to make their own way to the after school club (internally through the school). Children who attend an extra circular club at the school will be collected by a playworker if they are in KS1 and a snack will be offered to them when they arrive at the after school club.

We have a delicious changing menu of light snacks that the children can enjoy with their friends, catching up after the school day. The children can then play as they wish until pick up time.

The Breakfast Club

Breakfast School Club operates from 7.45am to 9am. The children can eat breakfast with us and play as they wish until school drop off. Key Stage 1 Children will be escorted to their classrooms and key stage 2 children will be escorted to the school playground and are expected to walk to their classrooms by themselves.

We offer children a choice of a healthy breakfast each morning, which usually consists of a mix of Cereal, Milk, Fruit, Toast, Crumpets and water.

The Holiday Club @ Cottenham

We offer a holiday club from our CKC @ Cottenham setting, which is approximately 10 mins away. This Holiday Club operates from 8am – 6pm with a full and varied programme of activities and trips. Each week has a theme to it and the activities and outings are based around that theme. This will be emailed out to you around 6 weeks before the start of the holiday for you to book the specific days. For children staying all day, a mid-morning snack and a light afternoon snack is provided. We ask you to provide a pack lunch.

If more than a months’ notice is given you will not be charged but will still lose your regular booking pattern and should you require it again will need to join our waiting list. However if you would like to hold onto the regular session, then we will offer to keep this open for a small fee – 50% of the sessions fee. You are free to make a permanent cancellation to the regular session, please note we will then offer this session to another child who is currently on our waiting for a place.

    Each club provides a slightly different menu. Generally for breakfast there is a variety of cereals, toast, yoghurts and fresh fruit with water, milk and fruit juice available to drink. In the after school clubs there is likely to be a variety of vegetables, crackers, breadsticks, meats and cheeses. To drink there is diluting juice and water. Fresh fruit is available continually.

    Yes. We do encourage all parents to visit the after school club before their child starts. This gives parents and children time to meet the Playleaders and Playworkers and ask any questions they may have. It is also a great chance for children to familarise themselves with the layout and see if they already have friends attending.

    Each school with stagger reception start dates slightly differently. When your sessions are confirmed, please provide us with the date you wish your child to start attending the club. This is normally similar dates to when they start school full time.
