Castle Primary School

Fig Tree Club

Our wrap-around-care for pupils in Years R to 6 is called  'Fig Tree Club', named after the beautiful tree outside our base in Milligan Class.  

All sessions are run by staff employed by Castle and all wear 'other hats' during the school day so become well-known to every child who spends these important times with us.

Fig Tree Breakfast Club

Sessions start at 7.30 am and finish at 8.30 am.  The last serving for breakfast is just before 8.00 am.

Sessions include a healthy breakfast where the children can choose from a large selection of cereals and toast. After a nutritious start to their day (ensuring they are ready for their learning!), children are offered a wide wide range of activities either to start the day quietly on their own or enjoy time with their friends using the wide range of resources available to them.  

Fig Tree After School Club

In response to parental feedback, we  offer two different session times.  Sessions start at 3.05 pm with Session 1 until 4.30 pm and those attending both sessions collected by no later than 6.00 pm.  Session 2 (Monday to Thursday only) includes a healthy snack when the children can choose from a number of options, eg wraps, homemade pizza as well as fruit. There is also a wide range of activities for children to do either alone or with their friends including: board games, construction and playing with the wide range of toys that have been donated to us.  There is also help and support available for children who want to use the time completing their home learning.  We try to use our outdoor facilities as much as possible, especially during the warmer months.

Once parents express an interest,  we can set up booking and payments (both online and in advance). Bookings for each week close on the Monday @ 9.15am - so we can ensure we have the correct staffing and prepare registers for safeguarding reasons. Bookings can be made upto  a term in advance. Payments  are via SchoolMoney:
