St Joseph’s offers a wide range of co-curricular clubs and activities, as well as before and after-school care on our large site.

There is always something going on at school – so please have a look at the activities on this page – we are sure you will find one that suits (or if not, let us know – many new clubs have started because due to strong pupil voice).


Breakfast and After School Club (St Joseph's Fed BASC)

  • Our Aims

    At the Breakfast and After School Club (BASC), our aim is to provide high-quality wraparound care within a safe, warm and welcoming environment. The individuality of each child in our care is respected and nurtured. We are committed to ensuring that children enjoy their activities. We work closely in partnership with the School and Parents.

  • Breakfast Club

    7:30am – Start of School

    We provide a healthy breakfast that allows children to have preferences. They will have an opportunity to look over their school work, read, colour, draw, or play a board game.  

    Infant children are escorted to their classrooms/queues.

    Junior children independently make their own way to their respective classrooms/queues.

  • After School Club

    From end of school – 6:00pm

    At the end of school your child will be met by a club staff:

    Infant children will be collected from their classes.

    Junior children will be asked to make their way to the club hall.

    The same procedure applies if your child has an after-school activity club beforehand (e.g. Football)

    The club provides a healthy snack at 4:00pm, usually cold or warm, along with fruits, fresh vegetables and drink of water, juice or milk.
