After School Clubs


Wrap Around Care


At Lydeard St Lawrence School we provide wrap around care on site. Breakfast club runs from 8.00 to 8.45 AM every morning and our after school provision runs until 5.00PM.


These clubs are run exclusively for children at Ladybirds Preschool and Lydeard St Lawrence Primary School by Claire Jenkins and Ali Morley. They are often supported by other members of our support staff.


We aim to provide a relaxing and fun environment that is flexible and cost effective.


We strive to create a very relaxed atmosphere where children are able to choose for themselves what activities they wish to participate in, such as:


  • Jigsaws, board games, Lego

  • Small World

  • Outdoor play equipment

  • Information and story books from our wonderful library

  • Supervised art and craft activities

  • Films


Numbers are limited so to book your child into Breakfast Club or After School Club please call the school office.

We aim to provide regular and reliable wrap around car at Lydeard St Lawrence. However,  occasionally due to statutory staff training or unforeseen circumstances we are unable to offer this provision. Parents will be given advance warning to enable them to make alterative arrangements.


Sports and Activity Clubs


Primary Sports Clubs


Our PE specialist runs three weekly sports clubs. They are currently on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. These clubs run from 2.55 until 4.00 PM. Children can go to after school club after these sessions if requested. Session dates can vary so please check correspondence for more information.


Our Friday session is football skills - this is a very popular club and as a result this is run all year round.


Wednesday and Friday clubs are seasonal sports clubs. These clubs are great fun and an opportunity to learn and improve sports skills.  We offer a mix of sports such as cross country running, cricket, rugby, athletics, rounders throughout the year. Further information is available from the school office. 


Sports club cost £2.50 per session.


Activity Clubs


Throughout the year staff and local providers also run a range of after school clubs. These will be advertised through parent mail and our fortnightly newsletter. These clubs often complement activities and learning that are happening in your child's class. We currently have a Tuesday karate club and in the past we have run Nativity club, tennis club, music art and drama (MAD), craft and sewing and cooking clubs.


We are also lucky to have parents who run exciting and inspiring after school clubs, such as animation and film club. These are also advertised through the newsletter and parent mail.


If you would like further information on these clubs, please contact the school office.


Cancellation of Clubs


From time to time it may be unavoidable to cancel clubs or change their content.


In the event of inclement of weather, where possible the club will be moved into Snowy Owl class and will take place inside.


In the event that this is not possible to find a appropriate place for the sports club to take place, the children will be supervised by the sports coach or another member of staff in a classroom or the library for the duration of the sports club. Parents will be informed in this event to enable them to collect their child if they would like too.


In the unlikely event that a club is cancelled and no alternative care is available, parents will be informed by 12.00 noon.
