After school care (GEMS)

At Valence, we offer a range of after school activities that run from 3 pm-4 pm please see the Clubs page for more information.

We also offer After School Care for those parents who cannot pick their children up from school at 3:00 pm. There are usually spaces available but do enquire if you are interested as attendance can vary.

GEMS After School Play Care Scheme

The GEMS After School play care scheme runs at Bonham & St. George's straight after each school day (until 6.00 pm) for children in Reception to year 6. 

We offer a selection of activities and equipment and all staff are suitably qualified and trained to get the best out of the children that attend. Children are provided with a snack upon arrival and various meal options are also available.

For parents, the club provides convenient and affordable childcare.  For your child, the club provides a safe, stimulating and fun environment with an emphasis on socialising with their peers as well as time allocated for homework.

Parents can elect to pick their child up before 4.30 pm at a reduced rate of £5.00 or to take advantage of a full session at £10.00, which includes a hot meal.

For more information contact Sarah Randall on 07858 693 651 between 3-6 pm for St. George's Rd or Keeley Perkins on  07746 592 655 for Bonham Rd.

GEMS Late Fee

Parents/Carers that collect their child late from GEMS will incur a late collection charge of £5 for up to 15 minutes. Subsequent 15-minute blocks will be charged at an additional £5 each.

After School late fee

However, if no arrangements have been made and/or if you collect your child up late from school/club then you will be liable for a late fee.

  • £2 for the first 30 minutes for example up until 3:30 pm.
  • Then £2 per half hour after 3:30 pm.

However, if you are persistently late collecting your child they will then be placed into our after school club which charges £10 per session. This fee will be charged to you.

Our late room is operated/supervised by a member of staff and therefore the time at which you collect your child is logged in a diary each day.
