Welcome to the website for Prae Wood Primary School

'RASCals' After School Club

We do not yet know Government guidelines for the provision of extended childcare for September 2020 and so cannot currently guarantee to be able to offer this. Please regularly check back for updated information

RASCals (Redwood After School Club) runs every day after school in Redwood, our activity block, for children from Year 1 to Year 6

Little RASCals runs as a separate provision, for Nursery and Reception children, every day after school in Ash Room.

Our wraparound care provision is run by our own qualified staff, and children have access to toys, games, puzzles, outdoor space and technology, such as lap tops, on a rotating basis. Drinks and snacks are available during the sessions, which include, for example, fresh fruit, breadsticks and sandwich options.

RASCals runs until 5:00pm or 6:00pm and costs £10 or £14 per session respectively.

Little RASCals runs until 5:00pm or 6:00pm and cost £10 or £14 per session respectively.

Children should be collected promptly. A charge of £10 per child will be applied for late collection beyond the agreed session time.
