After School Club Information
The After School Club operates within the values and guidelines of the school. However, it differs from lessons in that its’ emphasis is on providing good quality play care for your child after a busy day at school.
About the Club
The After School Club offers an affordable childcare solution for parents/carers of children attending The Victory Primary School.
The club caters for children from Reception to Year six and therefore complies with the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation stage.
It is located in the Nurture Room and it runs from Monday to Friday during term time.
