Enhancing Education with Wraparound Care: A Holistic Approach


In today’s educational landscape, schools face the ongoing challenge of meeting diverse curriculum outcomes while ensuring every child receives a holistic education. Wraparound care has emerged as a powerful tool in supporting these goals, providing additional opportunities for learning and development beyond the standard school hours. At School of Play, our wraparound care programme is specifically designed to enhance curriculum outcomes, ensuring that pupils receive a well-rounded and enriching educational experience. 

Supporting the Curriculum 

Our wraparound care programme is carefully aligned with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework, ensuring that all activities support key learning areas. For instance, our arts and crafts sessions not only encourage creativity but also enhance fine motor skills and cognitive development. Similarly, our sports sessions are tailored to meet physical education standards, promoting teamwork, physical health, and personal development. 

Examples of Curriculum-Supporting Activities: 

  • Arts and Crafts: Children engage in various creative projects that foster artistic expression and support fine motor skills development. These activities also integrate lessons on colours, shapes, and cultural themes, linking directly to curriculum goals. 
  • Sports Sessions: Our programme includes structured sports activities that align with national PE standards. These sessions help children develop physical skills, learn the importance of teamwork, and build healthy lifestyle habits. 
  • Educational Workshops: We offer workshops on topics such as science, technology, and environmental education. These hands-on sessions not only make learning fun but also reinforce concepts taught in the classroom. 

Benefits to Schools 

Implementing a comprehensive wraparound care programme can significantly enhance your school’s performance and reputation. Improved curriculum outcomes reflect positively in Ofsted inspections and contribute to higher levels of pupil achievement. Additionally, schools that offer high-quality wraparound care are seen as more attractive by parents, potentially boosting enrolment and community support. 

Testimonials from Schools: 

“They’ve been fantastic. Their communication has been brilliant and all the staff have been tremendously friendly and it’s been a great experience for everyone involved really including our staff who get along so well with their staff as well… The activities that the children get to do show that the company are willing to go that little bit further than just looking after the children.”Simon Parker (Urmston Primary) 

Parental Perspective 

Parents appreciate the additional support and enrichment opportunities that wraparound care provides. Knowing their children are engaged in meaningful activities that enhance their education offers peace of mind and reinforces their trust in the school.
