Entitlement for Extended Provision
We offer a limited number of 30 hours extended nursery placements at South Hiendley Primary School. Places are limited and offered to parents who are eligible for the extended entitlement. The criteria for entitlement is that both parents or lone parents work on average 16hrs per week, but earn less than £100,000 per annum. Parents are responsible for checking their own eligibility by visiting https://childcarechoices.gov.uk. Requests for extended nursery hours should be made directly to the setting who will check availability.
The 30 hours placements are comprised of 15 hours Universal Provision each day from 8:45am – 11:45am, and an additional 15 hours Extended Provision from 11:45am – 2:45pm each day. If you wish for your child to stay until 3:15pm there will be an additional charge of £3:00 per session. Arrangements to pay can be made through the School Office.
After School Club
Usually two or three after school clubs are organised each half term and range from Gardening and Art to Computers and Sports. There is a charge of 50p per session for the clubs which helps to contribute towards the cost of equipment and materials. We also work with outside providers such as Total Sporting Solutions.
The school runs a Breakfast Club in the multi-purpose room each morning from 7.45am to 8.55am for the full time children. The school is part of The National School Breakfast Programme, which is a DfE funded programme and is committed to providing healthy, balanced and safe food. The children are provided with a choice of cereals (Cornflakes, Crisp Rice, Shreddies and Cheerios), porridge, fruit, bagels and a cold drink. In addition, at morning registration, all pupils are offered a free breakfast bagel in the classroom. Please see the document below giving details about the Food and Drink Ingredients and Allergens. Please also see the document below which outlines the key findings form the Educational Endowment Foundation (EEF) into the impact of school breakfast provision.
The children are provided with games, activities and books and are fully supervised whilst attending Breakfast Club. They are then escorted to their classrooms ready for the start of the school day.
There is a booking system in place and the cost of each session, which covers the childcare element, is £2.50. To book places please contact the school office or download a form from below and return it to the school office.

FEET stands for Families Enjoying Everything Together. It is run for pre-nursery children to help them to make a successful transition into Nursery. It runs once a week and is attended by two and three year olds and their parents/carers. The families enjoy a range of fun creative activities which includes baking, singing and painting. The sessions often include ‘Talk Time’ where an invited guest speaker comes to talk with parents and to offer useful advice on a range of topics.
Educational visits form a valuable part of our curriculum. The visits are carefully planned to enhance the children’s learning and are linked to the topics studied in each class.
An annual residential visit is organised for Year 5 and 6 who spend two nights at Kingswood Outdoor Learning Centre. The children undertake a range exciting outdoor activities to develop team building skills and boost their confidence and self-esteem.
Family Learning is a valued activity at South Hiendley Junior, Infant and Early Years School. A range of activities are organised each year, both with the Wakefield Family Learning Team and involving our own staff. Activities planned are designed to enable parents to gain knowledge and an insight into how the children are taught at school and how they can best support their children’s learning at home. The focus for Family Learning activities have included phonics, reading, writing, maths and making things.
