Before and After School Provision

Enrichment Opportunities and Clubs

Thomas Jones is committed to providing a range of before and after school initiatives to enrich children’s learning and development. Our approach is always to focus on quality rather than quantity, ensuring that what is offered is legitimately valid, engaging and invariably inventive.

Clubs include both squad and generic development training for swimming, hockey, netball and cricket. There are also opportunities to take part in debating initiatives, robotics, French, art, dance and gardening. These ventures are open to different age groups and are led either by external specialists or by our own staff members. Pupils are actively encouraged to participate in clubs outside of the school day and suggestions for new ventures are welcomed and incorporated into future planning.

For some of the above, it is necessary to charge a fee in order to cover staffing costs and materials. These charges are periodically revisited to consider whether further reductions can be made or subsidies organised where appropriate . All enquiries regarding clubs should be made in the first instance via your child’s class teacher.

Early Morning Provision

Early Morning Club runs from 8am until the start of the school day every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during term time. Families are able to access this provision at a charge of £2.50 for the first child, £2.00 for the first sibling and £1.00 for any additional siblings. This includes the cost of a healthy breakfast and childcare for one hour.

Play Plus

The Play Plus runs from 3.20 to 5.45pm every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during term time and incorporates elements of play alongside sport, cooking and craft. All pupils, including Nursery, are eligible to attend. Places can be booked in advance or on the day. Please refer to our Play Plus Factsheet for Parents for more information.
