At Weston on Trent, following consultation with parents, we provide wrap-around care in the form of a multi-activity club. The activities run from 7.30 in the morning and until 5.30pm in the afternoon. This provision is provided by a professional coach from the YMCA. The children get fantastic continuity because the coach for the wrap-around care is usually the one who supports lunch time sport and delivers some of our PE lessons.
For further information and to book places, please contact the YMCA Y-Kids.
It is good to know that, as a Church of England School, the proceeds from the wraparound care are going to support the important work of the YMCA.
This is an extract from our wraparound care leaflet:
YMCA Y-Kidz is part of YMCA Derbyshire, our services include:

Students leave YMCA Key College ready for employment; we focus young minds and move them towards independence.
