Breakfast & After School Care

St Philip’s Link Club offers children a secure, safe and comfortable place to have fun before and after school.  All of our staff are trained in Childcare, First Aid and Food Hygiene and are dedicated in making your child’s time at our Link Club a happy one. We have two rooms to accommodate the children, a purpose built cabin for the younger children and the small hall for the older children, so all play and craft activities can be provided to meet each age groups needs.

The club is very popular and we try to accommodate as many families as possible.  If you are the parent of a child who is due to start school in September, we ask that once you have been offered a place at our school, complete an application form and send it to the email address below.  We start to allocate places following the Whit break at the beginning of June and parents are informed by email.
