Queen Emma Primary School

Due to popular demand in the area we offer a combined school club for children at Queen Emma school.

With Queen Emma located a short walk from Queen Edith and Oaks international school, we pick all children up from school and bring them to the clubs! Years 4, 5 & 6 are located at Oaks International School. Years 1, 2, and 3 are at their sister school site, Queen Edith’s Primary School.

The Breakfast Club

Unfortunately, we don’t currently offer Breakfast club for Queen Emma children. We hope this will change soon!

The After School Club @ Oaks & Queen Edith's

After School Club operates from the end of the School day to either 4:30pm or 6pm, children will be expected to make their own way to the after school clubs meeting point (Atrium), where all older children will then be escorted to Oaks via a walking bus.

Younger children are met at their classes by a play worker and escorted to Queen Edith.

We provide all children with a light snack around 4pm. We aim to change our menu regularly and always accommodate dietary requirements.

Children who attend an extra circular club at the school will be collected by one of our staff members from Queen Emma, and a snack will be offered to them when they arrive at the after school club.

The Holiday Club @ Queen Edith's

The 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.

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.
