OSCARS @ Carrick Knowe opened in 2014. Based in OSCARS own portakabins to the rear of the school adjacent to the playing fields , the breakfast and after school club is open to children in classes P1 – P7 attending Carrick Knowe Primary School.
OSCARS breakfast club operates from the OSCARS after school club base in the portakabins at the rear of the school and opens at 7.30am Monday to Friday. A nutritious breakfast is served by staff, and children can play a variety of games until the start of the school day. OSCARS staff escort children to their relevant meeting point at the commencement of the school day.
After School Club
The club commences from the end of the school day until 5.45pm Monday to Friday. On a Friday a short attendance session is available from 12.00pm – 3pm. 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 Carrick Knowe Primary School or one of OSCARS childcare venues in the EH12 area depending on facility availability.Request a Place
