Before and After School Club

Many people enrol their child or children in a before or after-school club, which provides a safe environment for primary school children whose parents work. 

These clubs are Ofsted-regulated clubs attached to a specific school, and are partially subsidised by the government. They offer children supervised, structured activities directly after school, usually until 5.30 - 6.00pm. Concessionary fees are often available.

As many after-school clubs have long waiting lists, preference is often, but not always, given to children whose parents work. Some schools don't have after-school clubs but they sometimes offer supervised school escorts to take children to after-school clubs in neighbouring schools. Often these are after-school club workers or teacher's aids. 

Some clubs offer specialised help with homework, others have 'study clubs' where children work together to finish their daily assignments.
