Welcome To 4 Community Trust After School Club At St Thomas C of E Academy
St Thomas C of E Academy
After School Club – 3pm –6pm
This club is located in the school hall of St Thomas Academy School, we serve both St Thomas and St Catherine of Sienna Catholic Primary school collecting the children via our walking bus. We have a team of experienced and enthusiastic staff who care for the children and they plan a huge variety of fun and educational activities. The children have the opportunity to access a wide range of equipment whilst at club and the extensive outdoor area offers the space for them to enjoy team games and sports on a daily basis. Children are offered a healthy snack and drinks whilst at club and are encouraged to gain independence by serving themselves where possible. We operate a maximum staff ratio of 1:8 and this enables the staff to spend more time getting to know the children in their care. EYFS Children are assigned a Key person who plans, observes and assesses their progress.

They also complete the FAMLY Portal which enable parents to give an insight into their child's experience at club. Parents are also kept informed of club activities via regular messages on the FAMLY Portal. These detail what is planned for the children in the coming weeks, any festivals or celebrations that club will be acknowledging and important information regarding matters such as safeguarding and services within the local area. Combining two schools means Children also get the chance to make new friends from different Schools.

Here's What Parent's Have To Say
We LOVE our parents and carers and we're so proud to share some of their thoughts with you...
Here are some comments from our parents' and carers' survey:
​"All the staff are very friendly and helpful"

"We would (and have) very much recommend the nursery as we've been very impressed by the staff, care, and enjoyment our daughter gets from going."
"They keep you updated with your child's progress, encourage children to learn and get involved with different activities"

​"Everything is wonderful, the staff are excellent and our little girl loves it!"
​"The staff are wonderful and always happy. You can tell all the children are happy at the nursery and there's lots for children to do. The outside facilities are brilliant and the nursery is nice and clean"
"I love the friendly nature of the nursery and the fact that the nursery are heavily involved in local community activities, and have great links with the local infant school"

​"When I looked round I was impressed by the space and how it was organised and the sorts of activities out for the children. I was also really impressed with the garden, I think that's a lovely space for the children! Doing a school day is really helpful for me as I have an older child so paying for hours outside of school hours would be a waste. The staff all seem to have really nice relationships with the children."

​"Both my children enjoy their time there and staff are responsive and approachable"
​"Lovely little nursery that has the children at its heart"

​"The nursery is a very friendly environment, and a has a very homely and personal feel. The staff are fantastic, whilst there has been a small turnover of staff recently, this has not negatively impacted the care the nursery provides. And somehow you manage to find equally great staff to replace those who have moved on. We are confident with the care and support the nursery offer our little one, which is why we will be keeping our small person here right up until she starts school"
"Approachable staff, fun activities, small, caring environment. Eleanor loves it!"

"Caring and loving staff"

​"My child loves nursery! She's always happy and content and I like checking what's she's been up to on Parent Zone"

"Really friendly, homely and safe. My daughter is really happy"

"The staff are lovely and are totally engaged with the children and parents. The nursery has a 'homely' feel to it. Thanks to the staff, Freya is engaged in all kinds of activities. She is confident and happy. She loves the staff and the nursery. The wonderful environment has made me (us!) very happy in my transition back to work"​​

Reviews:

Take a look at the reviews on our facebook page. We have lots of happy families :)
We are rated Good by Ofsted. Here are some of the comments from our latest report. 
You can read the full report here.

​"Children enjoy a varied range of activities, which reflect their interests and choices. Consequently, children are continually absorbed in purposeful play and are motivated and active learners. "
​"Staff motivate children by enthusiastically joining in with their play. They carefully listen to what children say and do, ensuring children feel valued and boosting their self-esteem and confidence. As a result, children are obtaining the skills, attitudes and dispositions they need to be ready for school or the next stage of learning. "

​"Outside, children enjoy exploring water using various containers, making marks on the chalkboard and planting and growing. Daily access to the improved range of opportunities in the outdoor area ensures children are able to practise jumping and balancing, throwing and catching and negotiating their way around the available space, to support their physical development. "
"The delightful Sky room provides children with opportunities to develop an understanding of the world. At times, children and staff simply lie on their backs and watch the clouds float by through the transparent roof."

​"Children are settled and secure. The nursery provides a warm and caring environment where staff get to know children and their parents well as individuals. Children develop trusting relationships with their key person. Settling-in visits are offered on an individual basis so children become familiar with their new environment at their own pace."some of their thoughts with you...
