Clubs & Childcare
 

Childcare is provided by New Forest Childcare who operate at Abbotswood before and after school.

Abbotswood is also pleased to be able to host both school run (green) and independent clubs. If you have any queries please use the contact details for the club listed below. 

School run clubs may change termly, you will receive a letter/email about the following terms clubs towards the end of the current term. Places are limited and it is our policy to ensure that as many children as possible have the opportunity to attend at least one club.

  • Please check exactly when the club finishes and ensure you are there to collect your child on time.  The adult running the club will always wait until all children are collected, but it can be very distressing for a child to be left!
  • If the club is an independent outside club, please contact the club directly to advise if your child will not be attending the club.  Details of the clubs contact information are available on our website.
  • It will not be possible for children to go back to their classroom or locker after their club, please do not ask them to do so.
  • Make sure you know which exit they are coming out from and impress the need for them to wait inside school for you if you are a few minutes late.
  • If collecting children from the Main Entrance, we would ask you to wait in the reception area.
  • Please remember if the Main Reception is open, and the person on duty does not allow you into the main building, they are following our security policy, so please respect them.

Please click on the links in the left column to download the PDF application form for each club. These are also available from the school office.
