Before / After school clubs

Does your school require a before and after school club?

Active8 Minds currently run wraparound care in schools between 0730-0845 and 1500-1800, Monday to Friday in schools throughout Hampshire.

  • Our clubs are perfect for parents looking for a safe and structured environment to drop their children off at prior to an early start or collect from a later finish at work.
  • Previous research has suggested that morning physical activity for children can awaken the mind and give a heightened state of concentration and readiness.
  • The club runs on the school site which reduces the risk of children commuting from an alternative morning club in the area.
  • Children attending before and after school club is a cost effective, engaging and alternative solution to using a childminder
  • After school clubs introduce children to a variety of sports games and creative activities each term. Games and activities are suitable for all ages and abilities.
  • All bookings are made through our online booking portal and are independent of the school. We provide the school with registers, risk assessments and insurances.
  • Where necessary, our clubs are registered with Ofsted. We also accept childcare vouchers and government tax scheme vouchers.

We would love to discuss how Active8 Minds® can facilitate your wraparound care services.

PE / PPA cover

All curriculum PE/PPA is planned and delivered by our expert team.

During PE cover and PPA cover, Active8 Minds staff provide adaptable lesson plans which cater for all abilities. Progression, feedback and assessment of each skill or technique is crucial to development. Gone are the days of having a coach bring a bag of balls and letting the children “get on with it”. It is now time to deliver Physical Education that is relevant, age appropriate, progressive in nature ( but adaptable to each individual) and a session filled with positive and specific feedback.

All of our PE/PPA packages are bespoke to you. Why not give us a call on 01243 696580 and we will arrange for our PE Development Officer to discuss your requirements.
