Pirbright Club Class (Before & After School Club)
Pirbright Club Class
“Learning at the speed of life and beyond”
Who are we?
We are a school that provides an amazing Pirbright experience to our extended services which expanded in September 2018 to include wrap-around care. Pirbright Club Class is run by Mrs Gurzynski and employs members of staff who are experts in their field. Their skill and ability in caring and nurturing Pirbright Village Primary School pupils is widely acknowledged amongst the school community. Making great use of the school’s wonderful facilities with a vast array of top quality resources, will allow children to have fun, to be inspired and to unwind after a busy day in the classroom. Pirbright Club Class is run by the school, following the school’s ethos, ensuring that pupils never want to go home.
Who is the club for?
We cater for all ages of Pirbright pupils from 4 years up to 11 years and aspire to achieve a special “family” feel to the club matched to the ethos of caring and respect upheld by the school as a whole. Our activities and facilities offer something for everyone! Whilst many people may see the club as childcare provision initially, we aspire to create an environment in which the children wish to spend time - whether their parents are at work or not. We also want to have many children who come along for our special themed afternoons (the first one being zorbing) and additional activities which will cater for the whole school. The Breakfast Club has a sport focus for four days a week, keeping pupils active and engaged and helping them to be ready for learning when the school day starts. Keep your eyes and ears open for letters and Parent Mail notifications telling you about exciting, upcoming events.
Where and when?
Breakfast Club runs from 7.45am to 8.45 and operates every day the school is open. Currently, due to the staggered start and the need for separate bubbles, drop-off is only allowed between 7.45 and 8.00. Parents need to escort their children to the nursery entrance. Pupils will access cereals and toast before having the chance to take part in a myriad of activities such as badminton, yoga, table tennis, circuits and much, much more. Breakfast is served until 8:15am to ensure the adults can run the activities smoothly; if children arrive after 8:15am, they will join straight in with the sports on offer.
The After School Club AKA Club Class runs from 3:15 pm to 6:00pm and operates every day that the school is open, apart from the last day of each term. Parents collect their children from the club via the door next to the nursery at the end of their session. If pupils are having fun outside, there is a number to call to let the staff know you are ready to collect.
What do we do?
In conjunction with the Headteacher and Deputy, Club Class takes responsibility for planning and organising activities, topic themes for each week and snack options. Theme-based activities include cookery, crafts, board games, reading, imaginary play, construction, music, sport and much more. Children are offered many opportunities to explore and develop new interests and skills, both inside and outside of the school environment, and can choose the activities that appeal to them most. If you would like your child to have a more substantial meal, then you can select a home-cooked meal provided by the school’s caterer CH&Co. We recognise the importance of healthy nutrition for children delivered in a calm, friendly setting and our new school caterer is able to provide this.
