Welcome to St. Mary's Wrap Around Care.
Wrap Around is currently run by Mr G Thorne and myself Ms S Kelly.
We both have extensive experience in working with children and young persons.
Mr Thorne has a CertHE PE, CertHE Sport Science, Level 1 FA Football, Level 2 FA safeguarding, Level 2 FA First Aid, Level 3 First Aid, Level 3 Nutritional Adviser, 10 years working with children, 6 years' experience in educational settings.
I myself am a Qualified Level 3 Teaching Assistant, have a level 3 Emergency Pediatric First Aid qualification and I am parent to four children.
Your children are in very good hands!
Wrap Around care sessions run for 5 days a week during term time.
Our day starts at 8.00am. In the morning we have a relaxed environment where the children can play with their friends, play games or sit and read quietly. We have tried to create a home from home environment where the children can feel at ease and settle for the day ahead.
At 8.35 we escort the children to their classrooms so they are ready to start the day.
Our After School Club starts at 3.00pm. I personally collect the children from their classrooms and if your child is attending a sports club, he or she will then be escorted to the After School Club room at 4.00pm by Mr Thorne.
For the first hour or After School Club the children can relax and play. We have a Nintendo Wii, a pool table and football table. There is a role play corner and dressing up area; or if children have had a busy day, they can simply relax quietly in our reading corner. We also have many toys and games.
I also offer a craft activity every day and so far this term we have made wooden spoon animals; stained glass windows bugs; lots of drawing and animal shape weaving.
At 4.00pm we serve a light meal for the children; this is a fairly new addition and we are working on a two weekly rotating menu. so far the feedback from the children and parents has been fantastic, however we are always open to new ideas and suggestions.
After we have eaten, depending on the weather, the children love to play outside. We have a selection of scooters and bikes that have been donated by parents and this is greatly appreciated.
When it is time to collect your children, we have a Walkie talkie system in place. This will be demonstrated during induction.
Some parents may not be aware, but we have moved into a new room at the start of the term. We are now located in the lower entrance gates of the school, and our entrance is purposely just for Wrap Around Care.
There is an intercom and buzzer system located on the wall just outside.
Please feel free to ask myself and Mr Thorne any questions you may have.
We hope that your children have an enjoyable and positive experience while attending our Wrap Around Care and that we help make life a little easier for yourselves.
After School Club care has a flat rate cost of £8.50 for the session.
Drop Off sessions in the morning are £2 per session.
Many thanks Mr G Thorne and Ms S Kelly.
