Our Ethos


Our After-School Club provides a fun, relaxing, safe and secure community, where all the children are encouraged to choose activities that reflect their interests. It is our expectation that all the children will socialise with their peers and show respect.

Each child is respected as a unique individual and we support each child’s transition from school and Pre-school to our After-school Club, to ensure a smooth changeover.

We work in partnership with parents and actively encourage them to become involved in all aspects in the life of our After-school Club.


Our Mission Statement


  • We provide affordable quality childcare for children who attend Combe Primary School and our Pre-school, in lovely surroundings.
  • We offer children opportunities to relax and play in a safe and secure environment.
  • We provide a warm, safe, friendly and stimulating environment.
  • We allow the children to make choices by selecting their own activities and encourage them to help plan for future activities, such as cooking and art and craft.
  • Our keyperson system ensures that each child feels secure and that their families are given feedback after each session about their behaviour and activities that the children have been engaged in.
  • We form strong respectful relationships with parents and carers, and encourage them to become involved in the running of our club and make decisions.
  • We welcome families from all different ethnical, cultural and religious backgrounds and who have additional needs or disabilities, and take special measures to ensure our club is accessible to everyone.
  • We welcome families from all social and economic backgrounds.
  • We are committed to developing the quality of our service and practice by making continuous improvements through planning, training, working with other professionals and obtaining feedback from the children, parents and carers.
  • As a registered charity, we encourage parents and their families to actively become involved and support us by helping our fundraising efforts.
