Caspers – After School Provision

CASPERS - After School Club

Our After School club was established in September 2014 following the growing need for 'after school care' for working families and others.  Over the last year or so our numbers have grown and we now regularly have 90 children attend the club each week.  Originally just named after school club we felt that it needed a better name and so last year we ran a competition for children and families that had used the ASC facility to submit some ideas.  We had some great ideas put forward and these were judged and voted on by the School Council and almost unanimously the name Caspers was chosen. Caspers stands for : Crockenhill after school play eat relax socialise , and sums up exactly what caspers is all about.  Caspers runs term time only from 3:15 - 5:30pm each day.  You can pick your child/ren up any time from 5pm onwards. There is a  fee for late pick-ups and these fees can be viewed in our t&c's.  The cost per session is £6 per child, and this includes a fruit snack and a meal. You can book your child/ren into caspers by completing the booking form and submitting it with payment to Mrs Bradley, Caspers Manager.  we accept cash, cheques and child care vouchers.  We aslo have a few places held back each day for on-the-day bookings, these sessions are £7 per child.  All our t&C's can be found on our booking forms.

We hope you all enjoyed your summer holidays.  We are very excited to see our regular children back and also super excited to welcome our new children, Especially our new reception children who have all settled in well.  Please see below for our new Autumn/Winter menu, Plus our themes for this term.
Friday 10th June saw the whole school celebrating the Queens 90th birthday with a celebration picnic in the school playground. At Caspers the celebrations did not end! Parents were invited to come and join the children for afternoon cake and juice, all prepared and served by the children. It was a lovely day and we would like to thank parents for coming along and joining in our celebrations. Thank you too to the children for their hard work.
CASPERS TEAM - We have an amazing team of ladies that work at Caspers and will look after your Child/ren with great care. The team is lead by Mrs Bradley with Mrs Bristow, Mrs Waterton and Mrs Warner.  All of these ladies also work in Breakfast Club and are part of our Midday team too, so the children will know them very well.  All our team are committed to providing a caring and nurturing environment for the children.

MEALS - On arrival to caspers the children can help themselves to fruit, and there is always water and squash available at all times. At approximately 4:15 the children are given a meal, During the winter months we try to always provide a hot meal. During our summer months we make the most of being able to eat outside (weather permitting!!) and adjust our menu accordingly. All our menus are available to download from this site. Please note that sometimes these menus are subject to change. We cater for allergies and a vegetarian option is always available.  If you require any information on Allergens in our foods or anything else regarding the menu please contact Mrs Bradley directly.

WEEKLY THEMES - Once the children have come over to us from their classes and have been registered, then there is time to have a fruit snack & a drink.  Once the children have re-fuelled then there is an opportunity to play games, including board games, lego, dressing up, puzzles or they can do some colouring in.  we also have craft most days.  The children are also given the opportunity to play outside weather permitting and we have a range of toys for outside play.  There is also the opportunity for  the children  to do their homework if they want to, or read to one of the Caspers staff.  We also have Boffle who is our Caspers dog and loves to be read to, the children can earn themselves a Caspers sticker if they read to Boffle. Each week we have a weekly theme and our craft is usually based around our themes. We try where possible to follow the school curriculum. So for example when the classes are studying WWII , we will base our theme that week also on WWII. During the Summer we base some of themes outside, so for example we have a Wimbledon week where we get the tennis rackets out & encourage the children to play tennis, and we finish off our day with strawberries and cream!

The themes for each term can be viewed and downloaded from this site.
