The Aftercare provides a safe environment for Ambleside Afternoons, when children rest, play and engage in constructive activities under caring supervision.

The facility operates between 13h00 and 17h30 daily. All children who have not been collected 15 minutes after they come out of school become the responsibility of the aftercare. The school cannot be responsible for the safety of children who stay after school if they are not part of the extra-mural or aftercare programme.

Morning care opens at 7:00. Children read or wait quietly in the school hall until 7:35, when all teaching staff come on duty and pupils may play outside.
