Our Vision

 To promote a healthy life style, emotional and physical wellbeing and active, engaged children interested in the world and the people around them. These can be achieved through fun, play based activities alongside more structured tasks based on the children’s areas of interest.

Platform One opened in April 2000. We are registered for 60 children after school and 45 children at Breakfast and in the holidays, aged 4 to 11. The staff make the club a fun and exciting place for the children to be while their parents finish work each day. The club is run by a School Governors.

We have six permanent staff and a reliable bank of relief Play Workers who help out when ever needed. One of our strengths is that all staff also have another role within school, this means that the children get to know us very well and it also helps to embed the link between home and school.

We have our own building and garden which is separate from the school, giving the children a sense that school is over and after school begins. We have found that the children like this aspect of the club.

We have a club that the children look forward to attending and the parents are secure in the knowledge that their child is being well cared for.
