We offer before and after school care at our Choughs Club run by Jade Hooper (Manager) and Tasmin Woods (Assistant).
At Choughs Club we want children to feel safe, stimulated, happy and to feel secure and comfortable with play workers. We also want parents to have confidence in both their children's wellbeing and their role as active partners with the Choughs Club.
We aim to make Choughs Club a welcoming place where children settle quickly and easily because consideration has been given to the individual needs and circumstances of children and their families.
Before a child starts to attend Choughs Club we use a variety of ways to provide his or her parents with information including a Parental Information Pack and an opportunity for parents to visit Choughs Club.
When a child starts to attend, we work with his or her parents to decide on the best way to help the child settle in to Choughs Club. We must have all your child's relevant information, especially medical and contact information in place before your child can attend.
For insurance reasons places at Choughs Club are only available to pupils enrolled at Menheniot Primary School.
All our staff are DBS checked and Menheniot School policies apply to the Choughs Club (copies available from school).
The Breakfast session is from 8.00am - 8.40am when the children go to their class. The cost is £2.00 per day to include breakfast (please state your child's food preference). The children will then be able to choose from a range of table top activities until they go to their class.
After School Session
The following activities will be offered:
craft activities, indoor games, lego, pool/ football table, cars and other toys, outdoor activities (depending on the weather), chill out activities (reading/listening to stories/ movie nights). Afternoon sessions run from 3.10pm (end of school day) to 6.00pm at a cost of £6.50 per session to include a snack and drink. There will be a late pick up charge of £20 if a child is not collected by 6pm.
Please note that due to Coronavirus restrictions, a limited amount of equipment will be used at the current time.

Registration for Choughs Club
Your child will need to be registered before attending Choughs for the first time, to ensure we have all the information we need about them, and how to contact you. We would recommend you register your child/ren with us if you feel you might need to use the club, as then we will have their details registered on our database which will speed up the booking process.
