Extended Schools and Services

The Government is supporting the development of extended schools which will offer access to a range of services for children, young people, their families and communities often beyond the school day. Schools, located as they are right at the heart of the community are ideally placed to support the Every Child Matters objectives.

The Government have set out a core offer of extended services that they want all children to be able to access through schools by 2010:

  • high quality 'wraparound' childcare provided on the school site or through other local providers, available 8am-6pm all year round.
  • a varied menu of activities to be on offer such as homework clubs and study support, sport, music tuition, special interest clubs and volunteering.
  • parenting support including information sessions for parents at key transition points, parenting programmes and family learning sessions.
  • swift and easy referral to a wide range of specialist support services such as speech and language therapy, family support services and behaviour support.
  • providing wider community access to ICT, sports and arts facilities, including adult learning.

If you have any more ideas that the school could develop to improve its Extended services we would be happy to hear them.
