Wrap Around School Care

Wheatcroft is able to offer out of school care from 7.55am to 8.35am and 3.05pm to 5pm.  Places are subject to availability and only bookable in advance. The club, Wheaties, is run in the on site bungalow by school staff.


Wheaties Rationale

Wheaties care club is primarily to support parents/carers who work and have child care needs.  It sits outside of required school provision and is not free of charge.  The club comes under the school’s policies and attendance is dependent on pupils following the school’s Behaviour Policy.  The Headteacher has the right to refuse attendance to pupils if they are in breach of the Behaviour Policy.


Pupils with additional needs

Within usual staffing ratios it is not possible to offer 1:1 support on an ad hoc basis.  The SENco will work with parents/carers and discuss necessary safe provision on a case by case basis when the need arises.

There may be circumstances when the school can financially support pupils to attend the club if they are eligible for Pupil Premium funding and there is a safeguarding reason for a pupil to attend.
