St. Paulinus Kids Club!

‘Providing reliable care for your precious little ones’


Welcome to St. Paulinus Kids Club! We are a non-profitable, fully Ofsted registered childcare providers based in the school grounds of St. Paulinus Primary School. We offer care for all children from the ages of 4 – 16 from any school in the district.

As we are located within the school grounds, we have access to different areas around the school including the school hall; the dance studio; the library; the playground; the school fields; the secret garden and also the

school’s animal enclosure. We also have our own secluded outdoor play area with decking, grass and a planting area for the children to enjoy.

Collection of children:

St Paulinus Kids Club promises to provide a safe and secure environment for all children at all times. All entrances and exits are secure and the main school entrance is the only one used by us. Parent/ carers must ring the outdoor bell on the gate on the main road outside school which rings the Kids Club bell in the hall where a member of staff will identify the parent/ carer before they gain access into the school grounds. If Kids Club staff do not recognise an individual who has come to collect a child then Kids Club staff will not allow that individual to take the child unless the child’s parent/ carer has given permission and has given a password to the individual.

Outside Agencies:

St Paulinus Kids Club is fully registered with Ofsted and complies by their standards of childcare. We liaise with Sure Start settings and other schools around the area too. We also have a childcare development coordinator from KEYS, Gillian Haigh, who makes regular visits and has regular meetings with staff about our care.

We also have children from St John Fishers Academy who come to us on selected nights to help out and gain work experience in our setting. The majority of the juniors we have are children who used to attend our childcare setting when they were younger.
