After School Club

 

At the After School Club, we aim to provide pupils who attend St. Crispin’s with opportunities to play and make friends beyond the classroom. We have the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of everything we do, especially Article 31, the right to leisure and play time.

All of our children have complex additional needs, including autism, and need help with communication as many are non-verbal. The After School Club supports play so that our children and young people can socialise in a safe, familiar environment that meets their needs. Through After School club, our children are encouraged and supported to learn, develop skills and explore the wider community with confidence.

The After School Club has a high staff: child ratio to enabling us to meet National Care Standards and the additional support needs of  St. Crispin’s pupils.

If you are a parent of a child at St Crispin’s School and would like to enquire about a place at the After School Club, please get in contact with us via email at stcplayclub@hotmail.com.
