Little Rascals Out Of School - Home Page

Little Rascals Out Of School is a multi-cultural out of school club for children attending local schools in the North Watford area.

Our Aim

To provide quality out of school hours facilities for local children at a reasonable price.

What We Do

Little Rascals Out Of School offers breakfast and after school club facilities for children in reception class to age 11 (or senior school). Working within the framework of OFSTED and the Early Years Foundation Stage, we are obliged to allocate a 'key person' to all Reception age children. The 'key person' will monitor the child's progress at the Club. This is designed to complement and enhance school records.

October 2013 OFSTED report

At the Church branch the children are walked in a 'Walking Bus' formation to or from their schools by a Walker. This ten to fifteen minute walk is very good for all the children. For safety reasons we expect the children to walk properly as their behaviour could affect the safety of the group and also reflect on the Club and it's staff. Please note that Kingsway School children will be taken by car to North Watford Methodist Church Hall.Our Policies and Procedures manual is available for perusal each day during session time.

At the Cherry Tree School branch, Breakfast Club start at 07:30 and the children will be taken to their classrooms for the 08:50 morning bell. They will be collected from their classrooms for afternoon sessions. This site is only open to pupils attending Cherry Tree School and closes at 18:00 each evening.

At Club the children are given breakfast or light tea and cared for in the safe, secure and closed access surroundings that the Church Hall and Community Room offer until it is time to either go to school or their parent or guardian collects them from after school sessions.

Each afternoon we have half an hour 'quite time'. This is designed to allow children the chance to do their homework, read, do colouring or just sit quietly if they wish. The children do not particularly like this part of the session but their parents do! This takes place straight after their refreshments in order to allow their tea to go down.

All sessions are operated on weekdays during school term time only.
