Before and after school club
Hockley Heath Academy is pleased to offer childcare for all children who attend Hockley Heath Academy from nursery through to year six. Morning sessions are available from 7:45am in the morning; afternoon sessions run until 6:00pm.
There are 2 elements to the provision offered, which are led and overseen by a childcare manager:
1. HH Club
The HH Club provides childcare at the start and end of the school day.
Sessions are run by our own highly-qualified staff from a new purpose-built facility at the rear of the school. The club also makes good use of all the facilities available, including the ICT suite and adjacent playing field. The club aims to provide a stimulating and enjoyable environment, whilst maintaining a "home-from-home" atmosphere. A wide range of activities are planned across the week, often linked to a project theme. Children are encouraged to demonstrate their creative skills and work alongside their peers on interactive and engaging activities. However, it is also a place to just play with friends, chat at the breakfast bar or curl up on the settee with a good book.
The following sessions are available:
Morning: 7:45am to 8:45am.
Short afternoon: End of school until 4:30pm
Long afternoon: End of school until 6:00pm
All children attending the afternoon club are offered a healthy snack as they arrive, e.g. toast, fruit, scones, malt loaf. Those children staying for the long afternoon are also served a light tea at 5:00pm, e.g. beans on toast.
If you are interested in booking a childcare place at the HH Club, please download a form and return this to the school office.
2. Nursery wraparound service
Our nursery wraparound service runs from 11:50am until 3:00pm.
(This can be used in conjunction with the HH Club for those parents requiring seamless childcare provision throughout the afternoon).
Sessions are led by our qualified Teacher in a separate nursery room designed to stimulate and develop inquisitive learners. The provision is available every afternoon during term-time. The children enjoy a relaxed lunch in the dining hall before being escorted back to nursery for more fun activities. Children may then be collected by parents or join the afternoon sessions in the HH Club.
