After School Club

Uphill Village Academy operates our After School Club from 3.15pm until 6.00pm daily (Monday—Friday) during term time. We do not operate on INSET days. The club costs £8.50 per child, per session, payable in advance. Our club employs members of staff who are fully qualified and experienced in the sector.

Play Leader – Ms Megan Smith
Play Worker – Mrs Hannah Smith
Play Worker – Ms Kirstin Mehr
Play Worker – Mrs Lesley Lambert
Playworker – Beth Duffen

The club offers a full range of child-centred activities, such as art & crafts, sports, games, books and imaginative play, thus allowing the children considerable freedom of choice. We offer healthy snacks and drinks during their time in the club. We encourage physical activity and make use of the school’s playground, hall and field, whenever possible.

How to Book

To book a place you must first email or telephone the Play Leader who will discuss your needs with you.

The Play Leader will inform you when there is a suitable place for your child. We operate a system which gives equal access to all children attending Uphill Village Academy.  If the club does not have a space on the requested day, you will be made aware of spaces available on alternative days and offered a place on the waiting list for the day you wanted originally.  We will contact you when a place becomes available. At this point we will add your child to the booking system and you will be able to book for one month ahead.

After School Club needs to be booked via the Parents Evening Booking System https://uphill.schoolcloud.co.uk  and will be paid for via our online payment website called ParentPay. We do not take cash or cheques for After School Club in the office or via the club leader.

Please refer to our online payments page for further details of how to pay.
