After school Club

After school club until 5.45pm daily


Children are registered as soon as they arrive after the school day. Children within early years and key stage 1 are collected by an adult from their classroom, children in key stage 2 are given the responsibility of meeting the group in the school hall where they will then be signed in by the lead member of staff. 


Our after school club is run by existing staff that are well known to the children at Chesterton, this offers lots of reassurance and provides staff and children with the opportunity to build safe and secure relationships. Where possible any staff absence is covered by a member of the school team.


Children are given a selection of available activities however are free to choose and develop their own play after a busy day at school. This provides them with the time and space to develop creativity, imagination, confidence, friendships, trust, social skills, teamwork and play!


Outside is used frequently for develop physical skills, love for and care towards nature and quiet relaxation. Our favourite outdoor activities include:

  • football
  • tag rugby
  • box hockey
  • crocodile crocodile
  • what's the time Mr Wolf
  • grandmothers footsteps
  • spiders and flys
  • drip drip drench


Children have an afternoon snack of fruit or toast at 4:30. You are welcome to supply a packed tea for your children to eat whilst at the club if you feel this would be beneficial, unfortunately we are unable to provide a cooked tea however a cooked school lunch is available for all ages during term time.
