Wrap Around Care
Reception to Year 6
N.B. All of our wrap-around care runs during term-time only.
Breakfast Club runs from 7:45am- 9:00am and offers a choice of healthy breakfast options including a daily cooked breakfast option. All meals are prepared on-site by Malvern Catering Company. Breakfast is served to the children in a ‘family’ style seating arrangement. The children are encouraged to use their manners and to talk to the other children on their table. Breakfast is then followed by a group activity sessions until school begins.
After-School Club runs from 3.20 until 6pm. Children can be booked in for one hour, two hours or the full session. The children are provided with a number of activities to choose from including traditional games, sports, forest school, ICT, craft and cooking. There is also a quiet area for children to relax after a busy day at school. Activities on offer change on a weekly basis and the children have an input in to what kinds of activities they would like to do.

You can also pay by cash, cheque to Mercian Educational Trust, bank transfer (details will be on your monthly invoice) or childcare voucher. Non-payment or persistent late payment will result in your allocated place being promptly removed.
Whilst we fully understand that changes are sometimes necessary we respectfully request that you give us one month’s notice of any changes that are required to your child’s provision. Spaces for this provision are limited but we will endeavor to accommodate extra sessions whenever possible. Please email SPPSwraparound@metacademies.org.uk with any changes or requirements.
Invoices are calculated monthly in advance, and staffing provision is allocated accordingly. Last minute changes disrupt the smooth running of the care and can cause potential safeguarding issues.
If your child attends extra-curricular clubs during the school year, their place in after-school wrap around care can only be kept with full payment for the hour to hold the space. Extra-curricular club discounts will not be given from September 2016.
If children are staying in after-school wrap around past 4:20, it is recommended that they bring along a small snack to keep them going.
