OSCARS @ Royal High Primary opened in August 2012. Based in the spacious school dining hall the after school club is open to children in classes P1 – P7 attending the Royal High Primary School and Craigentinny Primary School (Friday only).
Children attending from Craigentinny Primary School on a Friday walk the short distance to the Royal High Primary School escorted by OSCARS staff.
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, while older children from the Royal High Primary are greeted at the club base, and from Craigentinny at the school entrance door .
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 the Royal High Primary or one of OSCARS childcare venues in the local area depending on facility availability.
Opening on 23rd October 2019, OSCARS will be operating a breakfast club from the dining hall within the Royal High Primary School.
The breakfast club will operate from Monday – Friday, opening at 7.30am each morning. Our staff team will be on hand to welcome you and your child to the breakfast club, offering a range of cereals, toast, fruit, milk and water. In addition, a range of toys, resources and activities will be available for the children each morning.
OSCARS staff will ensure the children arrive in the playground on time each morning to line up with their classmates. Our staff will not leave until all children are safely in the care of their class teacher at the start of the school day.Request a Place
