Beacon Badgers is our after school care and is run by Humpty Dumpty Day Nursery. Sessions run until 6pm daily.  For further information or to book your child a place, please contact them directly on 01543 416002.

Drop-off and collection

At the beginning of the day, a member of staff will usually be on on the top playground to welcome your child. At the end of the school day, parents are encouraged onto the top playground to collect their child. The class teacher will bring their class to the playground to dismiss them to you.

If normal arrangements have to be altered (eg you are delayed or another person is collecting your child), please let us know at the earliest opportunity.  This avoids any confusion or upset.

Getting to school

To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it?s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Alternatively, we have bike-racks. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely.

Please note: the staff carpark should not be used for dropping off or collecting children.
