Extended Services and Clubs
We offer a wide range of school clubs throughout the day including before school, lunchtime and after school opportunities. We believe that all children should have the opportunity to experience a range of clubs including music, arts, sports and drama opportunities. Many of our school clubs are free, some of our school clubs need to be paid for however we encourage all children to take part in a club and make provision for families where the cost of clubs may be prohibitive.
Our After School Club runs here at school and is open to any child who attends our school. The club runs every Monday through Thursday when the school is open to children (it does not run on INSET days and school holidays).
We accept tax-free childcare vouchers and childcare grant payments. If parents are on any of these schemes please show evidence to the office and we can adapt Parentpay so you can book childcare without paying up front. See document below for more information on this.
Drop-off for breakfast club is at 7.45am only. Pick-up for after-school club is by 5.15pm.
Can I book wraparound care on the day I need it?
Ideally the school needs 48 hours notice to book wraparound care. However, if there are slots available last minute, you can still book on the day. You will still need to complete a registration form, see below, before they can attend.
Can I use the tax-free childcare government scheme to pay?
Check if you are eligible for tax-free childcare in the link below.
If you qualify, just name Sissinghurst Church of England Primary School as your childcare provider.
If you get tax credits, Universal Credit, a childcare bursary or grant, or childcare vouchers
You cannot get Tax-Free Childcare at the same time as claiming Working Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, Universal Credit or childcare vouchers.
