Compass Care 2014 webCompass Care aims to provide a happy and stimulating environment for the children in its care, providing an opportunity for children to relax and unwind as well as being able to enjoy a varied range of activities suited to their needs after a busy day at school. It s designed to operate around the School’s current rich variety of after-school clubs and activities and to meet such requirements as returning children to school when they are involved in off-site activities, such as games and swimming.

In providing a quality childcare service, we endeavour to promote the following principles:

  • Each child is respected as an individual
  • Each child has the right to equal opportunities
  • Each child has the right to a variety of play environments, risks and challenges
  • Each child should feel safe, secure and free from discrimination and bullying

Early Bird Care will be available from 7.45 am each morning. Running in a similar way to Compass Care, bookings can be made through the Compass Care Manager on a regular or ad-hoc basis. Ad-hoc bookings will require to be booked by 6pm the preceding evening or 6pm Friday for the following Monday. Due to staffing requirements, it will not be possible to simply turn-up on the day.

Please note that this is not a breakfast club and children should arrive having had their breakfast for the day and ready to begin the School day. At 8.20am, once the School has opened as normal, children will be conveyed or sent to their classrooms as appropriate to begin the school day.
