Entitlement for Extended Provision
We offer a limited number of 30 hours extended nursery placements at South Hiendley Primary School. Places are limited and offered to parents who are eligible for the extended entitlement. The criteria for entitlement is that both parents or lone parents work on average 16hrs per week, but earn less than £100,000 per annum. Parents are responsible for checking their own eligibility by visiting Childcare Choices on the Government website. Requests for extended nursery hours should be made directly to the setting who will check availability.
The 30 hours placements are comprised of 15 hours Universal Provision each day from 8:45am – 11:45am, and an additional 15 hours Extended Provision from 11:45am – 2:45pm each day. If you wish for your child to stay until 3:15pm there will be an additional charge of £3:00 per session. Arrangements to pay can be made through the School Office.
We work with Total Sporting Solutions to provide our children with a range of after school club activities such as boxercise, cheerleading and football. These sessions are funded through the Sports Premium Funding. We also run a weekly coding club for KS2 children.
FEET stands for Families Enjoying Everything Together. It is run for pre-nursery children to help them to make a successful transition into Nursery. It runs once a week and is attended by two and three year olds and their parents/carers. The families enjoy a range of fun creative activities which includes baking, singing and painting. The sessions often include ‘Talk Time’ where an invited guest speaker comes to talk with parents and to offer useful advice on a range of topics.
Educational visits form a valuable part of our curriculum. The visits are carefully planned to enhance the children’s learning and are linked to the topics studied in each class.
An annual residential visit is organised for Year 5 and 6 who spend two nights at Kingswood Outdoor Learning Centre. The children undertake a range exciting outdoor activities to develop team building skills and boost their confidence and self-esteem.
Stay and play sessions are on a Thursday afternoon and are open to families who attend the school and within the local community.
