About Badger Club
Badger Club is an out of school club providing wrap around care for the Long Furlong school children. We are based in the school hall where we provide a homely, fun filled environment. The club provides a wide and varied range of indoor and outdoor activities. Each child has an art folder that is used to keep all the work they do in Badger Club in. As governed by the Ofsted play setting guidelines our children are encouraged to make independent choices in their play for example climbing trees and using the play equipment. The Club is managed by a voluntary committee of school parents and chaired by Mrs Marta Tricklebank.
Badger Club is registered with Ofsted separately from the school (Ofsted number EY561085) . We are also a Registered Charity. Registered Charity Number: 1175264. Badger Club has its own set of policies which are separate from the school’s; they can be accessed by clicking here.
Each member of staff is qualified to carry out basic First Aid, and all staff have undergone police checks to ensure their suitability to work with children. There is a staff child ratio of 1:8.
The club opens at 7.45 am and staff will make sure the children are in their class by 8.55-9.00 am for the start of the school day.
The club will be in the school hall. We offer a range of breakfast food like cereals, toast with jam, yogurts and fruit; and breakfast drinks like juice and milk which will be served between 7.45 and 8.25 am (the latest). The children will have a choice of games to play, books to read, craft activities or catching up with friends before the start of the day. Each Breakfast Club session is £4.15 per child.
After School Club
The club runs during term time from 3:15pm to 5:45pm, Monday – Friday (Bank Holidays and Inset days excluded). Places can either be booked as regular slots each week or on an ad-hoc drop in basis (depending on availability). After a light snack the children can choose from a variety of activities: reading, quiet time, craft or cookery, play outside or just sit and chat with friends. We also mark special events and celebrations throughout the year with parties, which the children really enjoy! The cost is £8 per child per session.
A discount scheme is available for daily users and those with more than one child attending the club; details can be found here:
