As part of our service to pupils and parents we offer extended school services.
Acorns Childcare operates before school from 7:30am - 8:40am, after school from 3:15pm - 6:00pm and during the school holiday periods (excluding the Christmas holiday). We welcome all children from all schools in the area!
A list of the charges for this service can be obtained from the school office. Acorns is managed and run by school staff, who already know our pupils well.
