After School Club
The After School club has two locations and is based from the portable classrooms at the rear of the school and from the school drama studio.
The club commences from the end of the school day until 5.45pm Monday to Friday. The club offers a wide range of activities, and following consultation with the children, a weekly programme of events and activities is planned.
On a Monday to Thursday on arrival, and on a Friday mid-afternoon, children receive a nutritious snack and drink which varies from day to day and the snack menu is displayed on a weekly basis at the club. Unlimited drinks are available throughout the afternoon.
OSCARS staff all wear OSCARS uniform consisting of orange polo shirt, orange fleece and ID badge. They collect children in classes P1 – P3 from their classrooms.
The programme takes into account the time of year, and incorporates special occasions and multi-cultural celebrations and at regular intervals will include theme weeks. Activities offered always include arts & crafts, physical activities and imaginative play, and the programme is always clearly displayed for all children/parents/carers to see.
Resources such as sports equipment, arts and crafts materials, board games, books, dressing up clothes and pretend play equipment are readily available daily.
Occasionally, the children will enjoy an off-site activity, such as a trip to a local park, cinema, bowling etc. Details of these activities will be communicated to children/parents/carers in advance.
In service day and mid term childcare provision is offered and will take place at Blackhall Primary School or one of OSCARS childcare venues in the EH4 area depending on facility availability.
