Childcare & Extended Schools Provision

Due to our 'small village school' nature it is very difficult for us to provide a 'breakfast' or 'after school club' service. What we try to do is 'sign post' parents/carers to services in the area:

For childminders/pre school provision etc there is a website from Essex County Council's Family Information Service (FIS) that holds a list of contacts. We also try to maintain an updated hard copy in the school.

For holiday clubs etc. we usually send out flyers from individual providers that we receive in school, most notably the service that is provided via The FAST Team and our Local Delivery Group.
