After School Club

Go Bananas After School Club had our most recent Ofsted inspection in March 2014 and we are delighted to announce that we have achieved a 2 rating of Good.

Our After School Club staff are committed to ensuring that all children who attend the Club have an enjoyable time, with a wide range of experiences; all in a safe, secure and caring environment.

Here are a few comments from our Ofsted report:

  •         “Children are cared for by qualified staff who show genuine enthusiasm and commitment for children attending the club.”
  • “Children play in a safe and a secure environment, children’s welfare is safeguarded”
  • “There is a friendly atmosphere and children behave very well”
  • “Children are settled and secure as staff welcome children and have formed warm and friendly relationships with them.”
  • “A variety of challenging activities and fun learning opportunities are provided that interest children.”

Our Go Bananas After School Club provides after school childcare for children aged 4-11years; Monday- Friday from 3:00pm-6:30pm (Term Time Only).

Regulated by Ofsted, our friendly childcare qualified staff provide a rich, safe and fun environment to help all children make the most of their time here.

Upon arrival, children are greeted by our staff and have a snack before having the chance to play on our Aztec Adventure Frame. We then proceed to our secure After School Club rooms located upstairs where children have access to a wide range of different activities and resources. There is something for everyone, both whole group activities and the opportunity for free choice.

Favourite activities include:

- Arts and Crafts
- Computer and Wii Time
- Cookery
- Homework Help
- Lego
- Reading
- Puzzles and Board Games

Our After School Club Package also includes a light evening meal and dessert, menus are available on request.

Our Go Bananas After School Club is fully inclusive and we encourage all the children to take ownership of the club, to help them be confident and happy here.

Transport to our After School Club from your child’s school can also be arranged through us, at an additional cost, using a local Taxi Company with your consent (subject to availability). Transport is included in the After School Club Fees for North Primary School, though on days when one child attends, parents will be required to pay the subsidised fee of 50% of the taxi journey.
