Stay and Play

Stay and Play is our flexible after school care provision for children who wish or need to stay at school beyond school hours and are not in a club. We provide children with a fun and productive experience with a wide choice of planned activities.

Who can attend?

Open to all Reception, Year 1 & Year 2 pupils. Afternoon Nursery can also be permitted to attend, providing the Nursery teacher Mrs Broom is happy that the pupil has settled well and is ready to stay later into the day. This will be discussed on an individual basis.

When / Where?

Daily between the times of 3:15–5:30pm. Stay and Play sessions are held in either a reception or a nursery classroom, with the option of outdoor play (weather depending) as well as games and activities being held in the hall.

Prices and Collection information

£6 an hour charge. To incur just the one hour charge you would need to collect by 4:15pm. You are welcome to collect your child at any time during the late room session providing its no later than 5:30pm.


All children will be provided with a snack which will consist of crackers and cheese or bread and butter, a selection of fruit and crudités and a drink. This is followed by a choice of a plain or chocolate biscuit. We are automatically informed of any allergies as we are part of Grimsdell School.


Our Grimsdell assistants provide the after school care. There will be an adult-led activity for those that wish to participate and a range of activities for the children to choose, such as board games, artwork, role play and construction. Homework is not encouraged at Stay and Play, although if a child wishes to do their homework independently this can be facilitated.
