Providing before and after school care and a holiday club at the Avanti Hall School.
Our popular Holiday club is run from Avanti Hall School 8am to 6pm during normal school holidays. We do not operate from 25th December to 1st January each year.
Holiday clubs are activity based, including lots of out door play in the beautiful school grounds, healthy eating/ cooking, arts and crafts, visits from enthusiasts such as local reptile lovers, time to rest and read, playing with friends both new and old. During the summer holidays we usually have an outing one day a week, which means children need to be booked for a full day on those days.
Children from other schools may attend (please see our Covid risk assessment for how we are managing this and keeping people safe generally). Nearly all the staff are at least level 3 qualified in Childcare and some also hold level 3 qualifications in Playwork. All staff undergo regular training in Safeguarding children, Food safety hygiene, Health and Safety and there is always at least one member of staff on duty who is Paediatric First Aid trained.
Currently the club is registered for the government backed HAF scheme. Children from vulnerable backgrounds are able to attend for up to 5 hours a day, four times a week for free. Extra hours can be paid for. Please contact Sharon to see if we have space and if we are able to meet your child’s needs. Invoices are sent in advance and need to be oaid for in advance.
Children can be registered with us and then book sessions each week or book regular slots each week. If you give at least a week’s notice of a cancellation there is no charge. Some days can be very full and we may have to turn down a last minute request for a place but we will always do our best to take a booking.
Avanti Hall School has an on site car park, is on a main road into Exeter and is on a regular bus route.
