After School Club

At Holy Cross we offer an After-School Club.  We recognise the positive impact that wraparound childcare provision can have as it supports our families by enabling parents/carers to access work and training. As a Catholic school, we hold Gospel teaching as central to our purpose and the basis of our relationship with our community. By choosing our wraparound care, your child will benefit from these Gospel values.

After-School Club

After-School Club is held in the school hall from Monday to Friday when school is in session during term time.  Children are collected at the end of the school day by members of our After-School Club team. They will be able to avail of a range of both indoor and outdoor activities (weather permitting) and a light snack menu will be provided.

Children must be collected by ringing the buzzer by the main entrance gate of our school. A member of staff will greet you in the school foyer and your child can be collected . After-School Club closes at 5.30pm daily. Late collection after the closing time will incur a late collection fee. Please see Cancellation/Late Collection information below.

Places for After-School Club must be pre-booked, preferably  at least one week in advance, and not less than 24 hours prior to the date of the session. The cost is £7.50 per session for each child.

If a place has to be booked, at short notice, due to an emergency, please contact the school office and a decision will be made at the discretion of Mrs. Kerrell or Mr. Kelliher as to whether a place can be offered.
