Friendly Faces is overseen by SLT and the School Governors and is run by a small friendly team of six: Denine Hey who is the club manager; Jill Grenfell who is the team leader; Cath Lavin; Jess Lunn; Pat Haigh and Kirsty Sykes are all play workers.
Friendly Faces is a provision which provides childcare before and after school for pupils at Robin Hood Primary School. Currently, due to government restrictions, we are based in the school hall. To comply with government guidelines, children are in class bubbles in this location to keep everyone as safe as possible. The club operates during term time only, opening Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. – 8:50 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. The club is closed on bank holidays and school training days. Friendly Faces is a payable service and costs £6 per breakfast session and £12 per after school session; there is a 10% sibling discount to the eldest sibling.
Children are provided with breakfast each morning, consisting of a selection of cereals, toast, crumpets, fruit toast and a range of drinks are provided also. The children are free to have as much as they like and can have breakfast up until 8:30am. After school, the children are provided with home-cooked dinner which is lovingly prepared by our Friendly Faces team. The menus are compliant with 2015 School Food Standards and has been approved by Leeds City Council Healthy Eating Advisor and Nutritionist. We can adapt the menus to meet pupil’s individual dietary needs or allergies. Please contact the Friendly Faces manager, Denine Hey, should this be necessary. Menus are based on a three-weekly rota and are cross-referenced with the school dinner menu to ensure variety. Menus can be found attached so please take a look.
There are a number of indoor and outdoor activities which the club provides for the children. We have access to the main playground and use this daily (weather and daylight permitting) ensuring that games are played which allow for social distancing between bubbles. The children have access to a range of equipment including: footballs, skipping ropes, the boom box for dancing and equipment to use their imagination when building obstacle courses.
Within the school hall, the have access to arts and crafts, Lego, iPads, Nintendo DSs to use both alone or join as a multiplayer with friends and the children also have cinema time.
The club aims to have creative activities every day should the weather be poor (please see the medium term planning to see this term’s project).
