Please note that under the government guidelines we have had to make the following temporary changes to SMILES club until COVID-19 restrictions are lifted:
BREAKFAST CLUB
is currently only open to children in Infant School. The children are separated into their Year Group bubbles and sessions are taking place within their Year Group area. Unfortunately we are unable to offer all of the usual breakfast choices whilst operating on this basis.
AFTER SCHOOL CLUB is open to children from across the Telford Infant and Junior Schools. The Infant School children remain in their bubbles as per Breakfast Club while the Junior children make use of the rooms the club rents on the Junior School site, split into the 4 Year Groups.
