Early Birds / Night Owls Sept 24

Early Birds and Night Owls is our out of school club which aims to provide a safe, fun and caring playing/learning environment.

Early Birds opens at 7.45 am and runs until school starts. Children arriving between 7.45-8am will cost £5.05 and children arriving after 8am will cost £4.00 per session. 

Night Owls runs from the end of the school day until 6pm.  It is split into two sessions: from the end of school until 4.30pm and 4.30pm until 6pm, at a cost of £6.60 per session.

Bookings for the clubs are taken on a half termly basis to accommodate parents' changes in circumstance/working patterns. Where a session/s are oversubscribed, the bookings will be taken on a first come first served basis.  Bookings are made via the Arbor app and parents will be advised when this is available.  

The contract for 2024/25 may be found here.

Early Birds/Night Owls may be paid for using childcare vouchers.  The following schemes are closed to new applicants:

  • childcare vouchers
  • childcare your employer arranges with a provider (known as ‘directly contracted childcare’)
  • If you joined one of these schemes on or before 4 October 2018 you might be able to keep getting vouchers or directly contracted childcare as long as:
  • your wages were adjusted on or before 4 October 2018
  • you stay with the same employer and they continue to run the scheme
  • you do not take an unpaid career break of longer than a year.

How much you can take depends on the amount you earn and when you joined the scheme.

You can take up to £55 a week of your wages, which you do not pay tax or National Insurance on.
