Lowther Endowed School
Achieving, Caring, Enjoying
Our After School Club (ASC) runs from 3.35 pm - 5.30 pm (Monday - Friday) to provide affordable childcare to help balance work and family commitments. It is run by Emma Daley. Emma is a qualified teaching assistant with years of experience.
Activities and Events
A programme of activities will run each week changing on a regular basis. At Lowther we consider it essential that children, who have spent a full day at school, have lots of fun at ASC. We really want them to enjoy being there. While we take account of the school curriculum in designing the activities, the aim is not to provide extra teaching.
After School Club Programme (first half of) Summer Term 2023:
We still have places available in all our After School Club weekly activities. Each activity is open to all children across the whole school. The activities last for the first hour of the club, until 4.30pm, so costs only £3.50.
Monday is Story Club. This is a quiet club where we all have a hot chocolate with marshmallows, then move to the bean bags in the library area for stories followed by a craft activity. Here we make crafts to contribute to the displays in the school hall and library. This half term we will be looking at traditional tales from around the world.
Tuesday is Wildlife Club and Cricket Coaching. Each week, we will complete activities and work towards our Bronze, Silver and Gold RSPB Wildlife Awards. Certificates will be issued to children who pass the required amount of activities for each award. Alternatively, children can attend cricket coaching on the school field with Adam from Cumbria Cricket.
Wednesday is Action Ants. Lee will be running a varied timetable of activities, suitable for all abilities and ages. This is proving very popular, but we do usually have a couple of spaces available.
Thursday is Craft Club. We will be working both in small groups and individually making a wide range of crafts. Parents can look forward to their child bringing home a different creation each week!
Friday is Free Play. Activities include outdoor play (weather permitting), table tennis, hot wheels and K-nex. We have also had donated a super train set and lots of horses with stables!
We only have 15 places available each evening, so early booking is advisable.
Places at After School Club should be booked via the school office either by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephoning 01931 712344.
Should you need to cancel your child's place, we would appreciate 24 hours notice so we can offer their place to another child.
The provision of a healthy snack provided by our wonderful kitchen staff is included in the fee and will be served at 4 pm.

As the club operates when school staff may have left, it makes sense for some information to be held by ASC staff. We ask for a registration form (link below) to be completed to ensure that we know:
ASC is run by Lowther Endowed School so the school's policies and procedures apply.
