Wraparound Care Launching from September 2023
It is with great excitement that we announce that Premier Education will be taking over the wraparound care at Sir Robert Hitcham Primary School from the start of the next school year.
Premier Education has been successful in delivering high quality provision in primary schools across the county for 20 years including physical education, holiday club care and extra-curricular sessions in sport and non-sporting activities.
In the last five years Premier Education have become experts in wraparound care, working closely with school improvement specialists B11, and with our enhanced, well-rounded, “healthy active” offer, more and more schools are choosing Premier Education to support and run their wraparound provision.
From September 2023, Premier Wraparound will run before and after school every day the school is open. Our aim is to create an outstanding safe, secure, and fun environment that children and parents can trust.
Some of the benefits of Premier Wraparound care compared to other providers include:
Bookings for September will be available for parents/carers of children in Years 1 to 6 m now to come through. Premier will also, in September, gauge the interest for us initially. Premier will be applying for the site to be on a compulsory Ofsted register, which means as soon as they have this for the setting, they will be able to accept childcare vouchers against this provision. This could take between 3 to 6 months froto add EYFS to the registration, to allow children from reception age into the wraparound care.
As with anything new, we know that as a parent or carer you will have several questions. Below are a number of common FAQ’s Premier have received when taking over at various settings over the past few years.
We know Premier traditionally as a sports provider, what if my child isn’t particularly sporty? The care will not just be made up of sporting activities. We will have a mixture of staff who all have a lot of experience working with primary school children in similar environments. Sports and performing arts activity professionals will work alongside our Play Workers, to ensure a wide range of other activities will be available each day, including sports, performing arts, free play, reading, cooking, arts and crafts, plus more.
Will Premier be taking payments via childcare vouchers? Yes, we will be. as soon as we have our Ofsted registration number and an easy step by step guide of how to book online and inform your childcare provider can be provided.
What is ‘Flexi Booking’? Flexi booking is our unique insurance policy for parents if they need to change a booking. By paying £3.50 when making bookings, you will be able to receive a no questions asked refund if you need to cancel any sessions. One payment covers all bookings made at that time.
