The Hive After School Care

We are open daily throughout Lord Blyton Primary School term 3.15 p.m. to 5.15 p.m.

We have places for up to 30 children aged from 3 – 11 years in each session. Children are collected from their classroom and brought to the club by one of the club staff team. On arrival they self register and are offered a drink and snack. We then sit together to have our drink and snack.

The Club sessions are held in the Family Room located in the main school building.

Outdoor Play During Summer Months



Outdoor Play at the Club

The Club has access to the school playing fields during the warmer weather; children are always supervised by a members of staff from the Club during outside play. Appropriate footwear is required before children are allowed to use equipment. For health and safety reasons children cannot play with other (non Club attending) children or other users of the school playing fields whilst they are in our care.


We have a varied range of outdoor play equipment & children are encouraged to gain fresh air & exercise. Outdoor play will include bat and ball games, team games, hoola hoops, skipping, field sports and use of the school grounds. The outdoor play area is checked regularly by staff to ensure the safety of the area.


A completed registration form is required for each child attending the Club. We are happy to accept short notice/same day bookings when we have places available, places at the club are allocated on a strictly ‘first come first served’ basis.

Please contact the school office on 0191 4240550 to book places. To guarantee the availability of a place parents are asked to follow the booking in procedures which include sending in the pink envelopes complete with payment on a Monday morning.


Payment is due one week in advance, £5.00 per session. Any bookings made for the following week are able to be cancelled and refunded only with 24 hours notice. If payment is made in cash at the club, please ensure that your payment has been recorded in the cash book and signed by both yourself and the Co-ordinator. The club cannot take responsibility for lost payments. Receipts are available, on request.


Cancellations and Sickness

Please do contact the school if your child will be absent through sickness or any other reason, as we are concerned when a child booked does not show up, & results in us checking with the class teacher to try and find your child. As you can imagine this takes time and causes worry for the staff and disruption for the other children.

Should you wish to cancel your child's place at club we will require 24 hours notice

The club also reserves the right to withdraw the service if parents do not follow cancellation procedures or if payments are consistently late.
