School holiday options
For many of our children, the school day does not start and end in the classroom.
For working parents, it is important to know that children can be looked after and productively engaged in enjoyable activities before and after school, with the same high standard of safety and care that we provide throughout the school day.
Many of our children enjoy taking part in after-school sports or creative clubs.
We’ve broken our wraparound provision down into three categories: Breakfast Club, After School Activities and After School Care. In addition, the Henleaze Campus usually hosts a Holiday Club during the school holidays.
For children whose parents need to get to work early in the morning, we offer a Breakfast Club from 8:00am every day. This takes place in Henleaze Infant School. When you arrive on site from the Park Grove entrance, take the pathway to the left to head up to the Infant School entrance and sign children in there.
The Breakfast Club is staffed by employees of the Infant School. It offers pupils from Reception to Year 6 a light breakfast before engaging them in a free play session with crafts and games. Click here for full details.
At 8:45am, Breakfast Club staff escort the junior children to the junior school gates. They enter school along with the rest of their year group.
Parents must register with Breakfast Club by completing a Registration Form. Once registered, you can book regular days. To check availability for occasional extra days, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Breakfast Club is open to children who attend Henleaze Infant School and Henleaze Junior School. The cost is £5 per session.
In addition to any extra-curricular clubs that may be offered by Henleaze Junior School staff, we work with our partners at Shine to offer a choice of sport and other activities every day.
All Shine activities are booked and paid for on the Henleaze Junior School page on their website. They must be booked in advance. Parents will need to create a user account. Clubs must be paid for when they are booked. In cases of financial hardship, parents may enquire at the school office about the possibility of financial support. We aim for all of our activities to be fully inclusive. If a child requires support to access the activity, parents are asked to contact Shine, who will make the necessary arrangements.
Most activities run from the end of the school day until 4:45pm. Children who are attending after school activities meet in the Dining Hall, where they are registered by Shine staff. At the end of the session, parents collect children from the gateway to the front lawn outside the Dining Hall.
Shine activities are led by qualified instructors, who are all fully DBS checked and trained in safeguarding and health and safety matters. Children can sign up for a single session, or for a term in advance.
Shine After School Activities are open to children who attend Henleaze Junior School.
Henleaze Infant School also work with Shine to offer activities for the younger children. These must be booked separately, on the Henleaze Infant School page on the Shine website.
For children of working parents, we can look after them until 5:50pm at our My Time Club, run by Shine. This is booked in the same way as the After School Activities on the Henleaze Junior School page on their website. This after school care comprises two sessions which require separate booking.
‘My Time’ - this runs from after school until 4:45pm. It is a free-play session in which children can access a selection of toys, games and arts & craft materials. It is based inside but will also include time outside in the school grounds. Children may choose to relax in whatever way suits them.
‘Snack and Chill’ - this is a follow-on session which runs from 4:45pm up until 5:50pm. It could follow on from one of Shine’s coach-led activities or our teacher-led clubs (see above) or from a ‘My Time’ session. Children can continue to access the free-play resources and outside space, and a snack and drink are also provided.
Shine’s My Time and Snack and Chill at Henleaze Junior School is open to children who attend Henleaze Junior School.
After-School Care at Henleaze Infant School
For parents with children at Henleaze Infant School and Henleaze Junior School who wish their children to be looked after in the same place, Henleaze Infant School offers the Schools Out Play Scheme, which is open to all children who attend either of the Henleaze schools.
Schools Out Henleaze is a not-for-profit organisation, managed by a committee of Henleaze parents, which offers after school care for the children of Henleaze Infant and Junior schools.
Schools Out Henleaze also operate activity clubs in the school holidays, which are open to children from other schools.
All Schools Out activities are fully inclusive. SOH is a registered OFSTED childcare provider. Visit their website for further details and booking information.
During the school holidays, we host a Holiday Club run by Schools Out Henleaze on our site, based either in the Infant School or in the Junior School. Details are published in our weekly newsletter, the HJS Update, which is sent out by email every Friday to our families.
