Castle Kids Club

The club provides after school care for children aged 4 to 11 years old. The majority of children are pupils from Herons’ Moor Community Primary and from Baytree School but the club is open to children from schools in the surrounding areas.

The Club was set up in January 2006 and since then has successfully provided after school care between 3.15pm and 6pm for children aged from 4 to 14 years old. Whilst the majority of children attending are pupils from Herons’ Moor Community Primary (now Herons’ Moor Academy) or Baytree School, the Club is open to children from schools in the surrounding areas.

A breakfast club is also available from 7.45am until the start of the school day for children attending Herons’ Moor Academy and Baytree School.

The Club is based within the grounds of The Campus and has access to the many facilities available, including those within Herons’ Moor Academy and Baytree School. Children from Herons’ Moor Academy under the age of 8 are collected from their classrooms at the end of the school day and taken to The Club by a member of Club staff, whilst Herons’ Moor children over the age of 8 are responsible for making their own way to club. All Baytree pupils are escorted to The Club by a member of staff. Children from schools other than Herons’ Moor and Baytree are collected and transported to The Club separately, regardless of age.

Rest assured that your children will receive quality care provided by qualified and enthusiastic staff in a safe, secure environment.

During each session the children will receive a light, healthy snack.

As such it is important that we have, in writing, details of any food allergies or intolerances that your child(ren) may have so that we can ensure their safety at all times.

Each session also provides the children with the opportunity to discuss their day with the rest of the children and the play workers. The children will be able to take part in energetic play along with some quiet time to relax. We also aim to provide plenty of social and academic support for the children.

The Club has been set up, and runs with, the full support of Herons’ Moor Community School Head teacher Mrs. Julie Fox, Baytree School Headteacher,Edward Bowenroberts, YMCA Dulverton Group and North Somerset’s Childcare Advisor, Gail Alder and Danielle Benningwood & Wendy Webber Club Play Leaders.
