Wrap Around Care

Stimulating and fun activities for all ages are on offer in this safe, informal environment.

Wrap Around Care (WAC) is available on campus to all Junior School pupils from Nursery to Primary 7. Based in the Refectory building, this modern facility operates year-round (50 weeks) except for the Christmas holidays and Easter weekend. WAC fees are based on the number of sessions required.

In term-time, pupils may use the Refectory from 7:30am until the school day begins. WAC takes place after school until 6:00pm. Children can join in extra-curricular activities run by the school before attending WAC. Holiday hours are 8:30am – 5:30pm. Regular and ad hoc sessions can be booked. A team of 16 well-qualified childcare staff, led by Wrap Around Care Manager Deirdre McGhie, ensures that children make the most of the WAC facility.

Wrap Around Care will open during Summer Holiday 2020 for children of Key Workers only. This is in accordance with Scottish Government guidelines.

Activities

After-school activities include art and craft, imaginative play, books and stories, games and puzzles, active games and outdoor play. Pupils in Primary 3 to 7 can do their written homework in a quiet, supervised space.

In the holidays, WAC offers a range of popular outings and workshops as well as the activities listed above.

Registration

Annual registration runs from 1 July to 30 June. Applications to register can be made throughout the year.

Children joining the Junior School in August can also use the WAC facility in the summer holiday beforehand. Many parents find that this is a good way for children to get to know their peers and the school before term begins.
