About the setting
Space and Environment
Our registration area and snack room are based in the Kitchen of the KS1 block which is next to the school field. We also have access to the Studio in the KS1 block, the main school hall as well as both the infant and junior playgrounds. We are also able to use the ICT suite and Eco-Area on certain afternoons.
Our aim at Wraysbury After School Club is to challenge the engineering focussed minds we care for. In addition to the many construction-based activities we provide for children to choose from, the spacious and varied outdoor environments ensure the children are able to engage in plenty of active play. Although our play curriculum emphasises the natural environment and engineering-based activities, we also include messy/sensory play, ICT time and creative areas. To promote the natural curiosity of the children’s minds, Wraysbury After School Club employs a variety of tactics such as a question of the day, feeling’s board and a daily competition. Additionally, to promote teamwork within the club and stay within our Harry Potter theme, each child is given a Sorting Quiz and put into a House at the beginning of the year. As we understand the value of family time, we encourage and work with children to get reading and homework completed during After School Club.
The club opens for business at 3:00pm. Children from Reception and KS1 are collected from their classrooms by a member of our staff when the first school bell rings. Children from KS2 and KS3 are released by their teachers when the second bell rings and walk down to our area on their own. To ensure the children arrive safely, a playworker will stand at the entrance of our area while the school’s exit gates are manned by school staff. The club closes at 6pm with parents able to collect at any point prior to this time.

Parent access to the club
Parents and/or carers are authorized to park in the unmarked bays in the school car park. If the car park is unavailable, parking is available on the surrounding roads. Entrance to school grounds is through the gate at the back of the school car park.
The code to open the gate will be supplied once the registration process is complete. Parents and/or carers will then need to walk around to The Gap Club area in the KS1 building to sign their children out.

My son’s have been attending Gap club 3 afternoons a week since Reception. Initially I would try to leave work early so I get them a bit sooner as I was worried their day was too long. I don’t bother anymore, getting them to leave at the end of each day is a struggle because they are having so much fun.The staff are exceptional. There’s a good mix of experienced older staff but also enthusiastic & fun younger ones too. It’s amazing – I wouldn’t be without it. Thank you Gap Club!

Many of our children attend Gap Club which offers a range of enriching activities and toys for them to play with. It is an important resource for our working parents to use and forming part of the Kings Court wrap around care provision. The staff are friendly and approachable.
Sue, HeadTeacher - Kings Court School
Our son, Alexander very much enjoys everyday in the gap club. The staff are friendly and caring and really engage the children. There is a good mix of personal and group focus. Alexander generally comes home very excited about the activities that have been undertaken each day, which will include good physical exercise but also challenge alexanders creativity. Since attending gap club Alexander’s speech and vocabulary have come on in leaps and bounds. Most of all there is clearly a friendly and supportive environment that has been created for all the children. Thanks to the whole team for ensuring that Alexander’s energy has all been used up by the time he comes home, leaving us to just give him a small evening meal and put him to bed.

Danté absolutely loves going to Gap Club. All the staff really bond with him and in two years he has never said that he has had a bad day there or it wasn’t fun. I can’t thank the staff enough.
