Wraparound and Holiday Childcare
Oakgrove Primary offers wraparound care in its Oaks Fun Club and Holiday Club, with Early Oaks running before school and Late Oaks running after school. The emphasis is on creating a vibrant and fun club, which the children look forward to and enjoy every day.
Oaks wraparound care provision is not currently available to children in Oakgrove Nursery.
At Early Oaks Breakfast Club, children can be dropped off anytime from 7.45am until 8.20am. The children are offered a nutritional breakfast, followed by the chance to participate in fun, educational activities or catch up on any homework they have. The fee for each session is £5.
At Late Oaks, the children are taken directly from their classes to the club at the end of the school day. They are given a snack and a drink and are then free to take part in any of the numerous activities on offer. The children then all sit together for a light hot meal at 4pm. Parents have a choice of three payment sessions to book; for a parent collection up to 3.30pm the cost is £2, for a parent collection up to 4.30pm the cost is £8, and for a parent collection up 6pm the session cost is £10.

Wraparound Care Bookings and Payments
Bookings and payments for all the clubs can be made directly from a pupil's Tucasi School Cash Office account. Childcare vouchers will be accepted – please contact the School Office with the Childcare Voucher provider details and they will be able to assist with payment.
Oakgrove will seek to offer as much flexibility as possible. However, due to the need to plan for staffing ratio, the school cannot guarantee places unless they are booked in advance. If a session is booked, but the child does not attend, there may still be a charge for the session.
- All Oaks Fun Club bookings must be paid for in advance of the child attending the club
- Bookings should be made through the child’s Tucasi School Cash Office, unless the payment is with Childcare Vouchers
- If you are paying with Childcare Vouchers, please contact the School Office.
Late Collection from Oaks Fun Club
Oaks Fun Club runs until 6pm in the evening. Parents must collect their child on time, based on the session they have booked: by 4.30pm for an early finish session or by 6pm for a late finish session. Failure to do so will result in a Penalty Payment as detailed below:
If a child is booked in for an early finish of 4.30pm and the child hasn’t arrived by more than 15 minutes, the parent will be charged an additional £2, in order to take their session up to a Late Oaks finish of 6pm.
If the child is not collected by 6pm the parent will incur a charge of £5 for the first 15 minutes and then £1 per minute thereafter.
Contact the school office before it closes at 3.45pm if lateness is going to occur. After this time, contact Oaks directly on 07917 700453.
