John Bamford Primary

Before and After School Club


The John Bamford Before & After School Club aims to provide high quality childcare within a warm and welcoming environment. The individuality of each child in our care will be respected and nurtured.


Overarching Principles

  • To provide out of school services with primarily social objectives, whose surpluses are principally reinvested into the school for that provision.
  • To have an inclusive approach in recognition of the needs of all children.
  • To create a legacy for the benefit of all children, current and future.


JB Before & After School Club will:

  • Offer an inclusive service, accessible to all children in the school community.
  • Ensure each child feels happy, safe and secure, allowing them to learn and develop freely in a play centred environment.
  • Encourage children to take responsibility for themselves and their actions.
  • Encourage children to develop positive attitudes and respect for themselves and others, in an environment free from bullying and discrimination.
  • Offer a programme of activities which meets the needs of each child, promoting their physical, intellectual, emotional and social development, enabling them to become confident, independent and co-operative individuals.
  • Work in partnership with parents to provide high quality play and care.
  • To continue to promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural values, as well as British values through diverse clubs and activities at our before and after school club.
