We currently have 45 spaces per day available before and after school. 20 spaces are reserved for nursery and reception children joining the school every September. We currently only accept children who attend Urmston Primary School into our wraparound care.
We want to start the day off right; we provide a healthy breakfast and some light activities to prepare your child for the day ahead. Our team will then supervise the children to their classrooms in time for registration. The staggered start times due to the COVID-19 pandemic have been taken into account by our team.
Our staff will collect all the children from their classrooms at the end of the school day. Nursery, Reception and Year 1 children will be taken to our main HUB (music room), whilst children in Year 2 – 6 will be taken to the junior sports hall. Children will be kept in separate bubbles within each room bubble during the session.
Children will have several different activities to choose from. They can play sport, get creative, participate in role-play, chill out in the reading area, complete any homework they may have, and much more. At 4 pm, your child will be given a light snack to keep them going until tea time. Children attending an after school sports club delivered by another provider will be given a snack when they arrive from the session. The staggered finishing times due to the COVID-19 pandemic have been taken into account by our team.
Tapestry builds an extraordinary record of a child’s experiences, development and learning journey through their early years and primary education. Using photos, videos and diary entries, our staff, along with parents, ‘weaves’ the child’s story and how they are growing and developing. The Tapestry platform then works seamlessly to enable these memories to be kept as a permanent record of each child’s unique journey. All information held in the platform is stored securely and can be downloaded and shared as required. Parents can view their child’s progress online and how much fun they’re having, whilst also uploading their own comments and media.
We have introduced this service for no extra cost, if you wish to set up an account for your child, please email our setting manager and she will be happy to get you started email@example.com
If you already have a Tapestry account set up with us, you can log in here.
In line with government guidelines, we will follow all the safety measures set out for out-of-school club settings. We will be doing everything we can to prevent the spread of the virus within our setting, whilst still maintaining a level of fun and normality for the children.
It’s important to remember that if your child experiences any symptoms, please do not bring them into the club and inform us as soon as possible. Should a child test positive, every other student and staff member within their bubble will likely need to self-isolate for 14 days. If this is to happen a credit note will be added to your account for cancelled sessions, no direct refunds will be given.
Bubble 1: Nursery, Reception and Year 1
Rooms: Main Hub, Library, Playground
Bubble 2: Year 2 – 6
Rooms: Junior Sports Hall, ICT Suite, Playground
Children will be kept in bubbles of no more than 15 children, and they will be kept in bubbles within their room bubble.

Any payments that are overdue by more than 2 days will incur a £10 charge and then a subsequent £5 charge every day after that. We understand Childcare Voucher, and Tax-Free Childcare payments can take longer to reach our account, so if you are mistakenly charged, we will rectify this immediately. Charges will not be automatically taken from your card or childcare account; however, the charge will be added to your account with us.
Any parent late collecting their child will be charged £5 and then an additional £5 for every 15 minutes over. Our after school club finishes at 6 pm every day.
