Our Location & Route to Bisley School
Our club is not on school grounds, which means the children will be walked from Bisley School, in line with the Government's walk to school and school bus initiatives.
The route will be via the pelican crossing, which is a journey time of approximately 10 minutes. All children will wear reflective safety bands during the walk, and will be supervised from door to door with registers taken. We now have a 9 seater bus and some children will be driven.
Collection from Holy Trinity will be by minibus, we have booster seats for those needing them. Reception children are brought from their classroom to us at our meeting point. Older children make their way to us as they leave the classroom. A register is taken to ensure we have accounted for all children booked in.
Breakfast Clubs;Bisley: Breakfast club runs from 7.30 and is held on school grounds making it easier to drop your children. They can have breakfast and play until its time to go to class. If your child requires breakfast they must be in by 8.15am.
At the after school club, we will supply a light snack, although for many this is sufficient. On arrival back from school children will be offered a piece of fruit or a biscuit and a drink. Later, at about 4.30pm, a further snack will be offered. A menu is displayed each week to inform parents of the choices we have. A hot option is always available.
During school holidays, the children will need to bring a packed lunch. Some light refreshments will be available for those staying on the extended all day.
