As you are aware, our usual wrap around care has been paused for this first half of term, and we've used this time to review our offering and have been working behind the scenes to find a provider who can offer the school and parents what is needed; a provision that adheres to the current Covid guidelines, whilst ensuring that it echoes and supports our school ethos and values.
We have been highly recommended a company called Sports 4 All (S4A), who work in other local primary schools and have been running since 2007. They are a Buckingham based company who offer Early years Ofsted registered childcare and P.E in a select few schools in Buckinghamshire. S4A offers a wide range of activities for children and strives to be as flexible as possible to parents. They pride themselves on their clubs being more than just childcare, but clubs and activities for children to attend because they want to not just because of childcare needs.
S4A want children to share their passion for all sports regardless of ability. They aim to give everyone the confidence to give sport a go without fear of failure, unearthing new talents and celebrating achievements at all levels.
This extended after school club offers endless fun and excitement in a safe and secure environment. They aim to provide a place where children can relax and enjoy creative and stimulating activities in a friendly, disciplined, safe and relaxed atmosphere, and we feel that their ethos marries well with our own school (and sports) values.
As a result, S4A will be providing wrap around care, both breakfast and afterschool clubs and holiday clubs at Brill Primary School from the October half term.
As a result of Covid-19, the breakfast and after school clubs will be divided into Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, classes will be placed in year group bubbles, where possible and appropriate. On arrival please buzz at the main pedestrian gate, at the front of the school, by the car park, and a member of the team will come and collect your child. Lou, would we install their own buzzer/intercom for music room / boosc room?

Holiday clubs are open between 8am-6pm with activities all day. A wide range of activities happening at the same time means children never have to do any activity they don't want to. They strive to make holiday clubs as flexible as possible with bookings that can be made per hour so you can build the hours you want. Due to the Covid restricted bubbles they are less flexible than normal currently but aim to revert back to their normal system as soon as the guidance allows.
Childcare Vouchers and Tax Credits
They are able to accept childcare vouchers when making a booking you can use the coupon code "childcare-vouchers" which will send S4A the booking form. Payment can then be made by searching S4A Sports 4 All Ltd with your voucher provider.
