Our club offers
Our playworkers are all dedicated to facilitating varied and exciting play experiences for the children. We pride ourselves on employing a workforce who have extensive experiences and qualities. We have staff who are interested in craft, sports, cooking etc and who really want to inspire and capture children's imaginations.
Our junior playworkers are recruited mostly from the sixth form at the Downs School who are interested in working with children, they are full of exciting ideas and enthusiastically engage with the children during activities. The Downs School playworkers can really offer children an insight into their experiences at the Down’s school and can be a friendly face for our children when they move onto secondary school.
We also have senior playworkers who work at Compton Primary School with various qualifications and years of experience working within the school with all ages and abilities.
All our Playworkers build a fantastic rapport with children and their families and I am very proud to work with them all.
We provide a fun and relaxed environment for children to enjoy after school. Children can enjoy playing with their friends in many of the different activities we put on every session. We ensure a variety of activities to cater for every child. We have sport activities such as basketball, football, tennis, skipping etc. We have sand and water play and in the Summer there are go karts that all children love to play on. There are lots of art and crafts activities including; papier-mâché, finger painting, chalk drawing and junk modelling etc.
We have our own kitchen that we make good use of with cooking activities which are popular with the children. The home corner is a quiet place for children to relax and read. We pride ourselves on our childcentered activities and the children choose what themed weeks they'd like to have such as; Space, Mexican, scary, dinosaurs and we theme activities around these topics throughout the week. We have tonnes of fun and can't wait for you to join us!
Children's safety and wellbeing is of paramount importance to us. Every child should feel safe, valued, and cared for within our care. We ensure this by adhering to all of The Pirate Clubs policies, which you can find here on our website, which have been carefully written in accordance with current guidance and legislation.
We strongly believe that every child's individual needs are met; all our staff are trained in incorporating inclusive thinking in their practice. We encourage children to build positive relationships with children and we have a zero-tolerance to all forms of bullying.
We have a secure building that is situated on Compton CoE Primary Schools grounds. Access to the building via a buzzer on the gate. Children have to be signed out of the club by a nominated person.
Cleanliness and hygiene is a part of the club's daily procedures including regular hand washing and clean of the club after every session. Every session has specially trained staff known as the safeguarding lead and a paediatric first aider who attend every session.
Drinking water is available to everyone, at all times.
