We offer a afterschool club for children attending Bourn CofE Primary School on the school site. We also run a holiday club from Meridian Primary School, which Bourn CofE Primary School children are also welcome to attend.
KS1 (Reception, Year 1, 2 and 3) children are collected from their class teacher at the end of the school day. KS2 (Year 4, 5, 6) children make their own way to the afterschool club (internally via the school corridors), as we are based in the school art room and main hall.
Cambridge Kids Club @ Bourn
We operate the out of school club from Bourn CofE Primary School and have use of the schools main hall, the art room and the outdoor play space (rain or sun). Like all our other clubs we operate the club based on free Play and children have choice on what activities they wish to do. We have a quite area were children can do homework should they wish too.

Location in school
From the school car park, go to the back of the school to the large green gates. The gate will be padlocked, please ring the bell and a staff member will come and let you in
If you are collecting your child/children by car, please can we request that you park on the street outside the school as there is no onsite parking for parents at the school.
What the club offers:
We are a self-directed PLAY based provision.
“Play is a process that is freely chosen, personally directed and intrinsically motivated. That is, children and young people determine and control the content and intent of their play, by following their own instincts, ideas and interests, in their own way for their own reasons.”
This is very different from the classroom environment, which can be (and sometimes needs to be) a very structured environment. We believe that after a long day at school or term of learning, children want to come to us to have fun and freedom in an unstructured self motivated way. Children will learn skills that they need in the growing up process, but in a different way to school.
The After School Club
After School Club operates from the end of the School day to either 4:30pm or 6pm, Key Stage 1 children will be collected from their classrooms by a playworker and key stage 2 children will be expected to make their own way to the afterschool club (internally through the school).
After School Snack: We provide all children with a light snack around 4pm, examples of what we offer include soup, wraps, yoghurts, fruit, squash and water.
Children who attend an extra circular club at the school will be collected by a playworker if they are in KS1 and a snack will be offered to them when they arrive at the after school club.
The Holiday Club
We offer a holiday club from our CKC @ Meridian setting, which is approximately 10 mins away. This Holiday Club operates from 8am – 6pm with a full and varied programme of activities and trips. Each week has a theme to it and the activities and outings are based around that theme. This will be emailed out to you around 6 weeks before the start of the holiday for you to book the specific days. For children staying all day, a mid-morning snack and a light afternoon snack is provided. We ask you to provide a pack lunch.
