Ladybird Class for 3’s and 4’s 30 hours and more
Our Ladybird class is open from 8:00am till 6:00pm every day all year round. There are two different shifts for staff and you will be met for a brief “Meet and Greet” each day and a brief handover at collection time. As it is such a busy time and due to COVID restrictions, the staff won’t have time for a lengthy handover so if you wish to get more information it is best to arrange an appointment or email any questions to the office.
We offer breakfast, lunch and tea for the children who need additional hours on top of their 15 hours universal education within the school.
Parents who are eligible for 30 hours (15 additional hours of care) can use this facility as well as parents who wish to pay for additional hours care. For more information see our Extended care pack or talk to the office team.
If you child has a classroom place in the morning (8:30-11:30) they will spend their additional hours in ladybird class in the afternoon.
If your child has a classroom place in the afternoon (12:30-3:30) then they spend their morning in ladybird class.
Breakfast is served in the Garden Room from 8-8.15.
The hours after school are spent within our “Community Room” . This is where tea is served and where the children can rest, play and have a bit of relaxation time before they go home.
The Ladybird class during school hours is situated in our “Garden Room” building and has its own garden and beautifully resourced room. They will have time to play and learn with a small group of friends each day.
“Staff work hard to make the school a ‘home
from home’ environment, especially for those children who attend for long days and
during the holidays. Children have the opportunity to spend time in the local community.
They visit a nearby café and go to the local library for ‘rhyme time’. Children take part in
an intergenerational project with residents in sheltered housing. This includes doing
jigsaw puzzles and singing songs together and has been a huge success” OFSTED REPORT 2020
