Emma's After School - Stay and Play

Welcome to Emma’s After School Club

Emma’s After School Club is an independent club run from the ‘Eco Building’ on the school’s grounds. Emma and Tina welcome you. All of the children know us well as we are also teaching assistants and lunchtime ladies within the school.

This term has been a chilly and wet one, but it has not stopped the children playing on the new ‘wiggle’ bikes. We now have 4 and they have been a massive hit. For those children not willing to brave the cold a new train set has also been introduced – another hit. Alongside this we have offered all our normal crafty activities. Now we are back in full swing following our lovely Christmas break next half term we will run weekly seasonal crafting sessions around World Book Day, Mothering Sunday and Easter.


Our Aims:


  • To make our club genuinely accessible to all families with children attending Ampney Crucis Primary School
  • To provide an opportunity for children to socialise out of school.
  • To provide a range of creative, physical and play activities in a comfortable, familiar and safe environment.
  • The Club is available for children aged 4 to 11 years. We have places for 16 children at each session.
  • We run from the end of the school day 3.15pm until 5.00pm.
  • The club follows school term dates. This means the Club will not open on staff training days, or when we finish early for school holidays.




Please email Emma to obtain a registration form.

(Occasionally the school office keeps some spare copies of the registration form.)
