After School Club
After School Club is run by experienced St Mary Cray staff Mrs Matthews, Mrs Woolnough & Mrs Mercer who are familiar with the individual children and who have the skills, knowledge and experience to provide a stimulating environment.
The aim of the After School Club is to provide the children with an environment where they can unwind, relax, seek help/support with school work and have fun with friends. The option to read to an adult and complete homework is available if the children wish to do so.
The Club runs from 3:15pm until 5.55pm Monday to Friday within the school premises. The children are provided with a snack, fresh fruit and fresh cold drinks during the session.
Unfortunately children are not permitted to bring their own food as we have a number of children with food allergies.
There are a range of activities available for the children to enjoy including bowling, football, swing ball, arts & crafts, puzzles, board games, homework support and much more.
