Vanishing points, orthogonal lines, horizons... Do you know what they are? Our Year 5 children sure do! We have thought about how Van Gogh used these in his art, and have created some amazing perspective drawings of our classrooms in art. https://t.co/Ff2nbCw21e

Good morning, our Year 4 class are currently reading Varjak Paw, and love it. It would be such an amazing opportunity for them if you could pay them a virtual visit, if you could squeeze us in? Thank you!

*Parent reminder* This Friday, 18th September, is ‘Jeans for Genes’ day. 1 in 25 children have a genetic disorder globally, so let’s do our part by all donating £1 if we can, and wearing our best denim to help this worthwhile cause.

Wrap Around Care

Our Breakfast and After-School Clubs are currently run on our site by "Purple House". 

Contact details:

Email address: info@purplehouseclubz.co.uk

Club telephone number: 07904041527

What we offer

Purple House plan and deliver a range of activities to meet the needs of all the children. The children are free to choose from the variety of play equipment that is available to them or partake in an adult led activity each day for the variety of age ranges within the school.  Although we are not expected to follow the EYFS guidelines we agree with its importance and therefore aim to provide activities that cover all areas of the EYFS learning objectives and the curriculum. 

What we provide

Purple House provide healthy, nutritional and delicious tea time options at every session. We aim to offer physical indoor and outdoor activities for the children to support the wellbeing of each individual child’s physical development in the club.

The food we provide at the Club is not intended as a substitute for a main evening meal. We promote independence, by encouraging the children to help to set up and prepare part of the tea, clearing away after themselves and washing up with the support of adults. We aim to meet all individual dietary requirements and parental preferences wherever possible and ensure fresh drinking water is available at all times.

Staffing

Our employees are recruited in line with ‘Safer recruitment’ and the ‘Keeping children safe in education’ guidance.  No employee enters a registered setting until they hold a current Enhanced DBS certificate, the details of which are shared with the school.  We are committed to safeguarding and regularly review and update our safeguarding policy and procedures. We maintain a staff/child ratio which is in line with Ofsted guidelines and ensures the safety of your children in our setting.  Ofsted no longer stipulate a specific ratio; therefore, we work on the basis of ensuring no more than 1:8 child: staff ratio (4-5 years old) 1:10 child: staff ratio (8 years and above).

Off-site after school care

For parents/carers looking for child care beyond the school day, St George's After-School Club may be able to help. The after-school leaders collect the children from their classes and ensure they wear high-visibility jackets before they walk to St George's Hall.

For further information please contact St George's After-School team directly (020 8650 6459 or 07929737095).

After-School Care days/hours: Mon - Thurs 3.15-6pm; Fri 3.15-5.30pm.

Please let the St George's After-school team know if your child wants to attend a 3.15-4.15pm school activity club AND St George's After-School Club, as this needs their approval.
