Mighty Oaks Clubs

Club Manager

NVQ Level 3

Children are registered at Powell’s School at 3.15pm (other schools meet up at different times) and we then walk over to CRFC. If necessary, we do a second registration to collect children who have attended an after school activity run by the school.

During nice weather we can go into to Abbey Grounds and enjoy the wide open space and the play equipment in the adventure playground (if the weather's bad we go directly to the club). Alternatively we can use the facilities in the school playground. However, the children tend to prefer to use the pitches at CRFC for ball games and assault courses, our other outside play equipment and to go on woodland walks.

Here are some extracts from our 2012/2015 Ofsted reports:

"The quality of the provision is good."
"Children benefit from ample space to play and plenty of free-flowing indoor and outdoor play all year round. They make good use of the hall, playing field and woodland area."
"Children are happy, have fun and enjoy coming to the club."
"Staff facilitate children's play well, skilfully joining in their games on request and providing additional resources to extend their ideas and interests further...This motivates the children as they concentrate and persevere in learning new skills and excitedly show staff their achievements. "
"Children willingly help prepare the abundant range of fresh fruit and vegetables for snack, using the knives carefully and with appropriate supervision."
"Staff know the children well and plan activities based on their interests. This helps children to settle quickly and enjoy their time at the club."
"Children's behaviour is exemplary. They understand staff's expectations and the rules of their setting. This includes staying within the boundaries to the play areas, indoors and outdoors, and on the walk from school to the setting."

Mighty Oaks

Today it is paper planes, but often it will be Connect 4, Battleships or a mini chess club...

As numbers has have grown the culture of play has developed. There is always an older child to offer advice, guidance and support; there is always plenty of each peer group to engage in whichever activity one child may desire.

What will my child be doing inside?

For a vast majority of the time we find that most children like to be outside running free and having play as shown in the photos above.  We let them - this is the stuff of childhood. We ensure the vicinity is safe from harm and therefore free to roam within our set boundaries. 

Mighty Oaks

Focused children engage each other's wits in a battle of Connect 4, whilst others look on learning from their peers, offering advice, engaging in conversation.

Forest school

We have created a woodland space where we enjoy games and activities safely afterschool. Children love this exploration and always complain when it's time for parents to collect.

We offer children learning and developmental opportunities that they cannot get from home or school. Some parents have been so impressed by what they see going on at after school club that they send their children even if they could pick them up from school themselves!

Mighty Oaks

Older children harness the power of their emergent reading skills to entertain others. The younger child develops respect and trust whilst enjoying the act of learning to read.
