Valley Primary School

‘Growing and learning together to be the best we can be’



Explorers is our high quality childcare before and after school club which offer care in a caring, safe and secure environment where children can relax and enjoy themselves. We encourage politeness, respect and good manners. We have a dedicated, friendly team of practitioners all of whom are fully qualified.


We offer an environment with an enriching program of activities that encourage children attending to feel confident whilst enabling them to develop physically, emotionally and socially while also having the opportunity to explore, discover and be creative! Most of all we encourage the children to have lots of fun. Our school vision is promoted throughout and we aspire for excellence across the provision.


Before School Club

Valley Explorers “Before School Club” is open from 7:30am until the start of the school day every morning. Whilst we adhere to COVID 19 measures we are asking children to bring their own packed breakfast with them. Please do not arrive 7.30am as staff need time to prepare the rooms safely before Club starts. Children will be taken into school to start their school day at the correct time for their year group.


After School Club

The “After School Club” is open for more fun, games, activities and relaxation from the end of school until 6:00pm. Whilst we adhere to COVID 19 measures we are asking children to bring their own packed snack for tea with them. Children will have access to both indoors and outdoors play activities that they can take part in. Children are collected from their classes and taken to club at the correct time for their year group.
