Extended School Day

Park Hill Junior School is able to provide child care and education opportunities beyond the normal school hours for 51 weeks of the year. In a similar way to the school, the provision is subject to Ofsted inspections. The 'Breakfast Club,' 'After School Club' and 'Holiday Play Scheme' are organised and managed by Miss Helen McCarthy, who can be contacted on 07960 610393 or via email hmccarthy2.306@phjs.foliotrust.uk

  • Breakfast Club - This operates from 8:00am until the buzzer/bell for both Infant and Junior schools to signal the start of the school day. Children who attend the Infant school are accompanied by Breakfast Club staff to the school just before the bell rings. The children are able to use the facilities of the Junior School including the Atrium for games including table tennis, chess and four-in-a-row.  Food is only served between 8:00-8:30am.
  • After School Club - This operates from 3:30pm until 6pm every weekday. The club will provide a happy, caring, environment for the children to relax, do their homework or take part in activities such as arts and crafts, sports, reading trips to the park etc.
  • Holiday Play Scheme - This operates during all school holiday periods (except for Christmas week) between 8am and 6pm. This scheme operates on a similar basis to the After School Club. However, the day is split into session of 'Free Play', 'Structured Activities' such as arts and crafts and sports sessions. Children who attend are required to bring a packed lunch. However, children who remain after 4pm are offered a light snack. The Play Scheme is also open to children who attend other schools. However, places are limited and allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis.
