Breakfast Club

8am until 9am for children

aged 2 years and up. We offer

a selection of cereals and toast, as well as access to all the usual facilities at the ARC

All the children who attend

Woolpit Primary are escorted

over to the school for registration by a member of our staff

Pre-School Sessions

9.00am - 12.00pm

12.00pm - 3.00pm

Our pre-school sessions are for children aged 2 - 4 years. We provide a fun learning environment, and encourage learning through play

Each child is allocated a keyperson, although they will be supervised by other members of staff. The setting keeps a record of achievement for each child. Staff and parents working together on their children's records of achievement is one of the ways in which the key person and parents work in partnership. Your child's record of achievement helps us to celebrate together her/his achievements and to work together to provide what your child needs for her/his well-being and to make progress. We are now using Tapestry Online Journals to record your child’s progress and activities. You will be given a password and be able to access your child’s own journal whenever you like. We can send you alerts so you know when we have added to it and keep up to date with your child at Pre-School. Check in at home or work and see what your child has been doing today.

The children’s paper Learning Journey Folders in the ARC will still contain pieces of work, jigsaws and assessments, but the majority of their Learning Journal will now be online.

Don’t forget that if your child is part-time at school, the ARC is still open

to them for Lunch Club and the afternoon Pre-School session. We have arrangements in place with the school to collect your child from their

classroom and escort them to the ARC.

Lunch Club

12.00pm - 1.00pm


Lunch Club is available to all our pre-school children, age 2 - 4yrs (space permitting), and hot meals are available from the school at a cost of £2.30 (need to be booked and paid for at Woolpit Primary Academy)


If your child is part-time at the school, then don’t forget that the ARC is still open to them during Lunch Club (and/or the afternoon Pre-School session). Bring your own packed lunch or hot school dinners can also be booked at a

cost of £2.30



After School Club

After School Club is open to all children aged 2-11 years. Activities include

Arts & Crafts, Sporting Activities, Time to Relax, iPads, Nintendo DS,

School Playground access, Football, Den Making, Dressing Up & more


After School Club is now charged by the hour so is more flexible to suit individual needs. Do you have one child at an after school club and another

to collect at 3.15pm? Why not use After School Club for an hour? Or do you just need a bit more time now and then.
