Welcome to Hedgehogs
The team and I are a looking forward to welcoming your children to Hedgehogs, our breakfast and after school club!
In the mornings, we offer free flow activities, crafts, board games and more. The afternoon sessions are 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. Our team has 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.
A breakfast and after school snack will be provided which gives the children a chance to eat together. There is always 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 are taken to class by a Hedgehogs staff member. At the end of the day, Reception & Key Stage 1 children are 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 open term time only. When our academy is closed to children for an inset day, this also extends to Hedgehogs.
There is a maximum of 24 places each session. Please refer to the fees below for our pricing.
Mrs Stanton is our Play Leader. Mrs Hurst, Mrs Walsh and Mrs Babatunde work alongside her.
