Lowther Endowed School

Achieving, Caring, Enjoying

After School Club

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 (second half of) Autumn 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. 

 

Tuesday is Painting Club.  Each week, we will create a painted masterpiece! Some times we will work together on a larger piece of art and other weeks we will work individually on our own painting.  

 

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 Science Club:  

  • Week 1 Floating and sinking. 

  • Week 2 Bridge making. 

  • Week 3 Rocket making. 

  • Week 4 Visit from Red Squirrel Conservation.

  • Week 5 Drop an egg activity.

  • Week 6 Colour mixing.

 

Friday is Free Play Friday.  Free choice of play in the hall (hot wheel, small world animals, jigsaws, board games and colouring)

 

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: admin@lowther.cumbria.sch.uk 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.

Registration Form

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:

  • how to contact parents;
  • who to contact in an emergency;
  • who is authorised to collect your child / children;
  • any medical conditions in order for us to look after your child;

ASC is run by Lowther Endowed School so the school's policies and procedures apply.
