Safeguarding

 

We operate the schools Safeguarding Children policy, and in this regard we work closely with the Local Authority. As with all child carers, our organisation is obliged to report any concerns about the welfare of children. Staff members have the obligation to report concerns included in their contract of employment. The full safeguarding policy can be found on the school section of this website under 'Policies'.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead for SC Kids is Mrs Lyn Hoban

Planning and Curriculum links at SC Kids Club.

When staff plan activities as SC Kids they consider the children’s personal interests along with;

The Five Outcomes for Children

  • Enjoy and achieve.
  • Stay safe.
  • Be healthy.
  • Make a positive contribution.
  • Achieve economic wellbeing.

 

The Principles of Play work Practice

  • To extend the choice and control that children have over their play, the freedom they enjoy and the satisfaction they gain from it.
  • Maximize the range of play opportunities. Foster independence and self-esteem.
  • Manage the balance between the need to offer risk and the need to keep children safe from harm.
  • Foster children's respect for others and offers opportunities for social interaction.
  • Recognise the child's need to test boundaries and responds positively to that need.
  • Foster the child's well-being, healthy growth and development.
  • Further Knowledge and understanding, creativity and the capacity to learn.

 

We also aim to compliment the objectives within the school curriculum and look at the subjects the children will be learning about during the term. Wherever possible we will build upon what they are learning in school by complimenting the subjects within our planned activities.

All of our activities incorporate basic skills. When cooking, we weigh and measure, board games include counting skills. Numeracy skills are also reinforced in activities such as the target game others involve spelling or reinforce fine motor skills. Physical activities and games are also provided and outdoor play and learning are an important aspect of our planning.

 

Activities are always offered to the children within a relaxed environment understanding that this is the children’s time to relax and play with their friends. There are no expectations that the children should engage in any particular activity, their time, their choice. If a child expresses a particular interest in an activity or game we will endeavour to provide the equipment or activity to make this possible for the child to enjoy.

 

We are mindful that the children also value this time to build upon their relationships with friends, and make new friends across the year groups. We actively encourage all year groups to mix and children are a member of a team in club, which allows us to include team games and challenges in our activities.

 

f you would like your child to complete homework in club time, we can arrange for this to take place, although please be aware that it can get a little noisy in club, and may be a little difficult to concentrate. Please also note that whilst we encourage the children with their homework, we do not offer tuition in club.

 

Parents are always welcome in our club, we would encourage you to stay a little, or as long as time permits. However we realize that on the whole it is mainly working parents that use our club, and have other children and commitments at the end of the day. It is therefore our objective to inform parents of the activities taking place through notice boards, photograph displays, and newsletters. We welcome your feedback, and you can contact us at any time through the school office or via email.
