After-school activities run by members of KHPS staff take place between 3.30 and 4.30 p.m. A few activities are run by peripatetic staff, such as Karate; these start at 4.00 p.m. and end at 5.00 p.m. In these cases children will be taken to After-care until the club starts (free of charge) and then taken to the activity at 4.00 p.m. Parents will be expected to collect their children at the end of these activities at either 4.30 or 5.00 p.m. Children not collected at the end of activities will be taken to after-care.
Children still in school at 3.40 p.m., whose parents have not applied for them to join an after school activity, will be taken to after-care by their class teachers. After-care is available each week day during term time until 6.00 p.m. in the Nursery Building. An hourly charge applies for after-care from 4pm onwards. Parents should book this in advance but the School will look after children whose parents are unable to collect on time and have not pre-booked.
