After School Club


We do not run a breakfast and after school club on the school premises however there are some local providers.


SMASH - Use this link http://www.alpha-nurseries.co.uk/ 


From the Nurseries drop down menu you can choose either Bluebells (Bond St) or Smash out of school club (held in the church hall next to the school). SMASH, in particular, gets full very quickly and at times can have a waiting list. 


There is also a local childminder, Margaret Woodhams, who has been a childminder for the pupils at St Margaret's for many years. https://infolink.suffolk.gov.uk/kb5/suffolk/infolink/service.page?id=7nSDtLLRpZg
