Fun Zone

Fun Zone

Funzone Out of School Club runs on site at Walkwood Church of England Middle School.  We care for children from 4 – 13 years of age during school term time and all school holidays (closed for one week over Christmas).  Our opening hours are 7.30 am – 6 pm.

We provide a happy environment for children to relax and enjoy themselves away from school.  We offer a range of activities, often chosen by the children, ranging from arts and crafts, to cooking, to sports events, to den building, to facepainting, the list goes on and on.

Our staff are all experienced in children’s play and help children to push their boundaries, and take risks to learn in a safe environment.  We don’t wrap children up in cotton wool, we allow them to try new things that are appropriate for their stage of development.  We believe children benefit from being given opportunities to stretch themselves, with support if needed.  The staff are all DBS checked and all have First Aid and Safeguarding training.  Most of our staff have many years of experience of working with children.

Before school, we are open from 7.30 am and provide activities and breakfast for children of all ages together.  We have access to the school dining room and hall, and most mornings involve some physical activity for those who wish to join in.  The Walkwood school children leave us for the school playground at 8.35 am, and we take the Vaynor First school children to the playground and watch them into school at 8.40 am.

After school we collect children from the Vaynor First school playgrounds, whilst Walkwood Church of England Middle School children come to our classrooms themselves.  Children can be booked in for adhoc sessions or permanent term time sessions.  We also collect children at the end of after school clubs, as long as we are notified about them.  We provide snack and drinks after school, and a formal activity is offered for children who would like to take part.  Middle school children are allowed access to their own mobile telephones.  An Xbox and iPad are also available for their use.  (These activities are monitored for Safeguarding purposes).  They have their own area separate from the first school children.  This allows them some freedom to chill out and discuss things that they can’t talk about in front of our younger children.  They are welcome to join the younger children if they wish to though.

During school holidays we care for children from any school, and places are booked on a first come first served basis.  We are open 7.30 am until 6.00 pm and offer a host of thinks to keep them busy.  Trips are offered during each school holiday, we may go to the local cinema, Weston Super Mare, Umberslade Adventure and many other destinations.  There is a real family atmosphere during school holidays and great friendships are made.

Funzone also operates at Tardebigge First School (term time only), and Feckenham First School (term time only).
