The team and I are a looking forward to welcoming your children to Hedgehogs. Hedgehogs is our breakfast and after school club. In the mornings we offer free flow activities, crafts, board games etc and in the afternoons, sessions can be a mixture of planned and free flow activities. The children are also able to make use of our outdoor space, weather and light conditions permitting.
We aim to make attending Hedgehogs as positive an experience, in a homely environment, as possible. The team in place has some excellent experience and your children will be in very safe and caring hands. In addition, Hedgehogs is staffed by Norwich Road Academy staff who already know your children well. Breakfast and after school snack will be provided and this is a chance for the children to eat together. There will be good communication between Hedgehogs’ staff and class teachers to ensure that your children have a calm and happy start and end to their day.
In the mornings all children will be taken to class by a Hedgehogs staff member. At the end of the day, Reception & Keystage 1 children will be collected from their classes and taken to the school hall to meet with the Key Stage 2 children, so that everyone walks to and from Hedgehogs together.
Hedgehogs is held in our main school building and is open term time only. Also when the school is closed on an inset day this will also extend to Hedgehogs.
There is a maximum of 24 places each session. Please refer to the tariff for our pricing.
Mrs Stanton is our Play Leader and Mrs Hurst, Mrs Walsh, Mrs Babatunde and Miss Brinkworth work alongside her.
