Please see the booking section below to see the most up-to-date information on how to make a booking for Flamingos.
About our provision:
Tidbury Green School has a before and after school club located within the school and is run by our own dedicated school team.
At Tidbury Green, we believe that Before and After School Provision is an opportunity to enhance a child’s learning and enjoyment. Flamingos provides a nurturing and supportive environment, for all children who attend. Just as with the rest of life at Tidbury Green, we strive for all children to feel safe, secure and happy during their time with us.
The club can accommodate children from 7.30am in the morning which can include breakfast until 6.00pm in the evening where a cold tea is available for ages 3 to 11 years. Before school, we do our utmost to prepare children for the busy school day, offering them a calm start with the option of breakfast. After school, we endeavour to give the children the opportunity to learn new skills, be active and begin winding down after the school day.
We provide a vast range of exciting activities, where we hope that children can experience something new. We aim for children to have the chance to be active and engaged. Therefore, promoting the importance of exercise and healthy living, and to extend their learning opportunities.
Activities across the year may include:
- Cooking Club
- Football Club
- Art Club
- Science club
In Flamingos we have a fantastic large room which includes:
- Dress up/role play area
- Book/reading zone
- Calm spaces
This is an example of our timetable of after-school activities:
Mondays - In house activities
Tuesdays - Fit 4 Schools
Wednesday - Football Skills School
Thursdays - Fit 4 Schools
Fridays - In house activities
How to book a place:
As communicated with parents and carers in May 2021, we have needed to make some changes to our booking arrangements for Flamingos Before and After School Club care to ensure that places are allocated, safely staffed and that we can effectively make the best use of the space we have available. This will allow us to ensure that as many children and families as possible can be supported with their childcare needs.
From September 2021, Tidbury Green School will make and allocate bookings. Parents will no longer be able to self-manage the booking and cancelling of sessions by iPal. This is because cancelled sessions without notice are a staffing cost to the school and result in unpaid places that could be offered to another family. To ensure the safety for your child, we will need to know your bookings in advance. Please email the school office: firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know your requirements and we will do our upmost to provide places for your child.
Spaces are limited to ensure the safety of the children and to ensure that we remain within the legal staffing ratios for each age group. For this reason please only request and book the sessions that you need. Regular booking will be prioritised and ad-hoc bookings can be made where there is availability. If you have any changes to you future requirements, please contact us in advance of this. The more notice we have, the more likely it will be that we can accommodate these changes. If your needs cannot currently be met, you can be placed on our waiting list.
If you cancel places, these places will be offered to those on our waiting list. Please provide at least a month's notice for any cancellations. Refunds will be given for bookings if your child is unwell and their absence is authorised.
If your child is new to the school and you will require before or after school care, contact us as soon as their school place is confirmed to arrange your childcare needs in advance, as spaces are limited.
