After School


Closure of our after school club


I am writing to inform you that the consultation period has now ended for the proposal to close our after school provision.

I am writing to inform you that the decision has now been made to close the after school club at the end of this summer term.

As mentioned in a previous letter, this has been a difficult decision and it is not one that has been taken lightly.  Unfortunately the number of pupils attending our after school provision have gradually fallen since 2016 and have now reached significantly low levels.  This means that the amount of money it takes to run the provision far exceeds the amount we reach in payments from parents.  The provision is now running at a significant loss and the deficit is continuing to grow.  The after school club is not sustainable and therefore we face no other option but to close the provision.

The Children's Centre will be available to support and to signpost parents to alternative provision available in the local area now our after school club is closing.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come in to The Spinney or the school to speak to a member of staff.
