Wraparound Care

At Southcott Lower School we aim to support parents in their busy lives. We provide before and after school care clubs, and maintain strong links with local playgroups.


Before School – Early Birds is run and managed by Southcott School.  It operates from 7.50am each morning, you do not need to book.  Early Birds is open to any child who attends Southcott Lower School in the mornings, whether they are full or part-time and runs during term time only. Children are welcome to bring a snack to eat at Early Birds as breakfast is not supplied.

Each session is charged at £2.50 (£2.00 for siblings attending the same session).  We ask for payment in advance or on the day.


After School - Night Owls is run and managed by Southcott School. It operates from 3.30pm to 6pm each evening and needs to be booked in advance, although this can be done on the day required ideally before 12 noon. Children can go directly from their classroom to Night Owls, or be collected from one of our extra-curricular activities.

Children are offered a biscuit when they come into Night Owls and a light snack at around 4.30pm.

Each session is charged on a half hourly basis, starting at 3.30pm, at a cost of £4.00 per hour. Invoices are sent out on a weekly basis and are payable on receipt.


During the school day – Pre-school for 3 to 4 year old children is run and managed by Southcott School.  We offer a morning session (9.00am to 12 midday) and an afternoon session (12.15pm to 3.15pm) with 20 places in each session.  Children can stay all day from 9.00am to 3.15pm. Parent/carers are entitled to 15 hours childcare each week.  Any hours above this are charged, at £4.00 per hour, £12.00 for a 3 hour session. Invoices are sent out on a half-termly basis.
