Gradually starting back!

We are delighted that we are now able to make the first steps towards offering the service you need.


However, things will look at lot different!


There will be Four different Clubs, running for after school only. Three of these will be in classrooms and only one in Magpies. Because of the increased need for cleaning, we will also need to close at 5.30pm (17:30).


The clubs will be the the year groups that already have limited contact during the school day:

  • Reception and Robin (Minimum age 3 years)
  • Year One and Two (Infants)
  • Year Three and Four (Lower Juniors)
  • Year Five and Six

Unfortunately, siblings will not be able to use the same group (unless they are already in the same year group)


We are aware that children are leaving school at different times and will take care of your child as soon as needed- there will be no 'gaps'.


Magpies is currently undergoing a huge transformation where almost everything is in a box or put away so we don't have to clean it every time the building is used. I know that those of you familiar with the room will feel for us.


BOOKINGS are open! However, these are only provisional bookings because some groups may be too small to run and we may yet run into practical difficulties we hadn't anticipated  You don't have to pay when you book but you will need to pay before the session runs. The first session is on Monday 14th September.


This is a new booking system which we hope will be much easier that the previous one. It does mean that you will need to Register yourself and your child or children before you can book.


There is an 'app' which comes with the system, which we encourage you to get because you can get 'push notifications' on your phone, which will be very useful for us if we have to close as short notice (a possibility we're afraid).


Any credit due from the previous system will be applied here.





Saima, Manager



Saima has been with Magpies from the very beginning and is a very experienced Manager.


Edward Feild Magpies are rated 'Good' by Ofsted and have a 5 star Food Hygiene rating.

We run Breakfast Club fron 7.30am every school morning.


Your child will enjoy a good filling healthy start to the day.


If they have time they can finish homework or enjoy the huge range of toys on offer.


We take all KS1 into class and hand them over to a member of staff while most of KS2 are taken to the playground to line up with thier friends. We notify the school to make sure that they arrive in class. By arrangement we take children straight to class


Breakfast Club costs £5.75 per session.



After School Club runs at the end of the school day.

Juniors (KS2) usually make their own way across the school site while Infants (KS1) Nursery and Reception children are collected from their classrooms and taken to Magpies. Older children are also collected on request. 

We have a lot of variety in the snacks and aim to include one of their 'five a day'; fruit is always available. We have more cooked hot food in the winter, fresh in the summer and serve what's in season. There is always a choice and we cater for any dietary needs.


You can collect at any time up until 6.15pm, when we close.


After School Club costs £11.50 per session.


Holiday Club usually runs for all of every holiday, except between Christmas and New Year. INSET days are normally covered, subject to demand.


There is more information on the HOLIDAY CLUB Page


We have a huge range of activities available and at least one organised activity where children are encouraged to join in (but don't have to). We get outside just about every day and there is a rota system for computer games to restrict how much time they spend on them. We watch TV during snack time and now and again at other times.


We always encourage children to be active and most like den building and messing about in the rain and dark...
