Out of school clubs, play schemes and activities
Before and after school clubs
After school clubs may be offered by a school, or by a private or voluntary (charitable) provider, either on or off the school site. They run from the end of the school day until about 6pm.
Some will also provide care at the start of the school day and they are sometimes known as "breakfast" clubs. If they provide care for children under the age of eight years they must be registered with Ofsted.
Each school has its own arrangements for extra-curricular activities. So, speak to your child's teacher about what is available or search events to find out what's going on near you.
Holiday clubs and play schemes
Schemes providing care during the school holidays are usually open for a standard working day to meet the needs of working parents. They often run sports-based and play activities. Again, if they provide care for children under the age of eight years they must be registered with Ofsted.
