Carr Junior School
OFSTED No: 147105
Working with parents and children of Carr Infant and Junior Schools, we offer wrap-a-round care during term time, for children aged 4 –11 years from 7:30am until 6:00pm. We are based in the Carr Den to the rear of the Junior School next to the swimming pool. If you have any queries or wish to visit us to have a look around, please contact us on: 07547139565, or email CarrDen@carrjunior.southbank.academy.
The Carr Den offers a warm, welcoming atmosphere, and like Carr schools we strive to be fully inclusive, with children of all ages playing happily together. At the Carr Den we believe that every child is unique in character, interests, abilities, and needs, and through feedback we aim to offer every child activities that they enjoy.
Based in a safe, inviting environment, sessions are tailored to the children, allowing them to follow their own interests whilst encouraging learning through play in a fun, stimulating way.
All our staff have thorough and up to date, relevant expertise and, in addition to regular training, each hold qualifications in:
Child Protection Awareness
Like all other employees and helpers at the school, we ensure all adults have obtained an Enhanced Disclosure statement from the DBS Disclosure Service before starting work.
As well as following Carr Junior School policies, we have our own policies which are adhered to at all times. Our policies can be viewed in the blue folder located outside The Den. We also have named individuals responsible for specific issues which may affect children.
Named Person for Safeguarding: V Kerr (Carr Junior Headteacher)
Named Person for Inclusion: S Skidmore (Carr Den Manager)
Named Person for Behaviour: M Steele (Carr Den Playworker)
The Carr Den offers space to play freely and eat in a secure, well maintained environment. We also have access to many of the excellent facilities Carr Junior School offers and we regularly leave the room to enjoy play in wider areas and allow children the chance to burn off steam or to try a range of different experiences.
Currently we have:
· A range of small toys suitable for children of different ages and abilities.
· Access to the generous enclosed sports field
· Scooters, trikes, go-carts, games and activities for outdoor play
· Use of the large school hall
· Cooking/baking facilities
· Arts and crafts
· TV/DVD/Video and Nintendo Wii
· Board games
· Lots of dressing up clothes, role play toys and imaginative staff!
