After School Childcare



Portway Infant School & Portway Junior School have an after-school care facility.

The club is run by a team of playworkers and two part-time managers. Our two managers are well-known to the Portway communities as they both currently work within each school. Ms Joe Loader from the infant school staff and Mrs Karen Cook from the junior school staff share the role of After School Club Manager across the week.

The club is based in the junior school dining hall but makes use of areas in and around both schools, particularly our extensive grounds. Activities are very play based and planned around the interests and ages of the children attending. The session includes a light snack. Sessions run from the end of the school day at 3.20pm until 5.30pm. Each session costs £10. We are happy to accept childcare vouchers but we will need notice to register with each different provider.

If you would like to book places for your child/children you will need to collect a Portway Plus+ User Agreement and Registration Form from either school office and when these have been signed and returned we will provide you with a login to access the online only booking and payment system.
