Before, after school and holiday childcare

Wrap around child care for St. John's Children

We are pleased to be able to offer 5 different ways that parents can use local child care. These are

1) After school with Primary KidZ Care

2) Before school with Star Primary

3) Holiday clubs with RS coaching

4) Local child minders

5) Books and Breakfast club with school staff


The before school, after school and holiday clubs are run by third parties at St. John's. We do not charge these companies to use the school and provide rooms and utilities for free so that the costs to families can be kept as low as possible. These are not school clubs and parents need to contact the clubs to ask about bookings, activities, costs and times. 

Please note that school does a safeguarding check to ensure that staff at these 3 clubs are DBS checked, but parents need to to carry out any other checks, for example with regards to medical care, first aid, diet and individual risk assessments, as these are the responsibility of the clubs and not the school. 


We have successfully worked with local child minders for many years. Some childminders have been caring for the children of St. John's for up to 20 years. Going to a local childminder gives children the opportunity to spend time in a home environment after a day at school.

5) Local Childminders

There are several local child minders that help families with before and after school child care. We do not recommend any particular child minder but the websites below will help you find many of the local providers. We do work closely with child minders that pick up and drop off at school to try to help them ensure that their children arrive in the mornings and and leave in the afternoons safely.

Please note that we are not responsible for the provision of any of the child minders listed on the web sites below and parents are advised to check the child minder is registered and speak to other families that may already use them to help them choose a child minder that they would like to work with.


Please note that we are not responsible for the content of external websites.

4) Before school Books and Breakfast club

We run a daily Books and Breakfast club. This is a free club for pupil premium children who are invited to enjoy a nutritional breakfast, read to an adult and have help completing homework or even do a craft activity. It is a very friendly happy start to the day run by Mrs. Bott and other school staff.
