Wrap-around Care

At Ashfold we recognise that parents lead busy lives and need flexibility both at the beginning and end of the school day.

Between our Breakfast Club and After-school Club, we offer Wrap Around Care (WAC) from 07.30 - 18.00, subject to exclusions described below.

WAC Crèche and Tea is not an extension of school or our extra-curricular programme, but an opportunity for children to relax and play with their friends. Activities may take place indoors or outdoors, depending on the weather. It includes snacks and drinks, and a nourishing sandwich tea at 17:20 for those children staying until 18.00.


Booking Wrap Around Care

Please make all bookings for Breakfast Club and After-school Club via the Parent Portal.  For details on how to do this click on the link below:
