We offer outside play everyday, with a Park situated in front of our After School Club. This is where the children love to spend most of their afternoons.
We also have access to the School MUGA and playground, where we can get our bikes and scooters out and about, as well as a large gym hall for our team games – the cat and mouse game is a definite favourite with the children!
Bilston Breakfast Club
We open from 7am and you can locate us within the Community Room just to the right of the school main entrance. We offer a free flow breakfast with a choice of cereals toast, yoghurts & fruit.
Some families choose our half Breakfast session which is from 8.20am and the children attending this will always be offered a slice of toast and some fruit before school.
We have a range of activities on throughout the morning from role play, arts & crafts, boards games and much more.
At 8.40am the children are taken into the playground to line up at their allocated spot and staff stay and supervise until the children have entered the school with a teacher.
Bilston After School Club
Here at Bilston ASC, we are registered to take a maximum of 30 children per day from age 3years – to S1. The children are collected from the school at 3.15pm (Fridays are 12.20pm) and are walked through the playground to the community room.
We offer a healthy snack following the National Setting the Table nutrition guidelines this is done through a role in process to allow the children to continue their play. As a service we also cater for any allergy or dietary requirements the children may have.
Throughout the session the children have the choice to play indoors with a variety of different play opportunities including arts and crafts, imaginative play, messy play, dancing, den building and much more. Outdoors we have instant access to the playing field where we offer offer football, parachute games, teams’ games etc. The children can have use of the scooters and bikes which is always a firm favourite and finally they can choose to access the community park.
As with all our After School Club settings we have several children attending who have a range of additional support needs and it is our ethos to have the services integrated throughout. This has shown to be beneficial for both our mainstream and additional support needs children.
