Primary Schools are now required to publish alongside their Performance information a list of their childcare provision making it easier for parents to know what is available.
St Joseph’s RC Primary School offers a full range of childcare provision which we have listed below:

We run a Breakfast Club in the hall from 7.30 a.m. until 8.50a.m. Children (and parents if they would like!) are welcome to join us for breakfast and supervised activities. It costs £2.00 per child per session from 7.30a.m. This covers the cost of cereals, drinks, toast etc.
Here at St. Joseph’s we have little J’s which offers places for those eligible
for 15 or 30 hours of nursery provision as well as paid hours.
- Morning sessions 8.50 – 11.50 (12.50 if staying for a school lunch).
- Afternoon sessions 12.15 – 3.15 (11.45 if coming in for a school lunch).
Additional hours are available and are chargeable at £5.00 per hour, payable in advance. If staying for over the lunch period the charge is £5.00 and this includes lunch and childcare.
All children qualify for 15 free hours per week from the term AFTER they turn three.
We also offer places for “Rising 3’s” – this means children can join us for any number of hours the day after their 3rd birthday at a discounted rate. Please contact the office for further details.
If you feel you maybe entitled to 30 hours provision please contact the school office.
In September 2016 we expanded our Little J’s provision to include the offer of free play and learn provision for qualifying two year olds. If you think you may qualify for a place for your two year old, please contact Mrs Johnston who will help you check eligibility, complete the relevant forms and add you to our waiting list. Spaces are available for mornings in the 2 year old provision.

We run a Tea Time Club in the hall from 3.15pm. until 5.15p.m. Children are welcome to join us for a snack and supervised activities. It costs £5.00 per child per day. If your child attends an After School Club, which costs £1.50 per day then stays for Tea Time Club the cost is £3.50 per day, making a total cost of £5.00 per day.
We are excited to announce that from September 2017 we will be offering a 30 hour free provision to parents/carers of qualifying nursery children. Working parents may also benefit from this fantastic offer, please contact the school for further information.
