Out of School Provision tenders

The Westcountry Schools Trust will be inviting tenders for the supply of services for an Out of School Provision at Yealmpton Primary School starting from September 2018.

At Yealmpton Primary School we strive to inspire and challenge our children: achievement and a ‘can do’ attitude are at the heart of the Yealmpton ethos. We recognise that every child deserves to fulfil their potential as successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. This is a very exciting opportunity to work in close partnership with the school to provide the highest quality childcare provision to compliment the excellent educational opportunities offered throughout the year.

We pride ourselves on providing a warm and friendly environment where both children and parents feel welcomed and listened to, ensuring children experience a happy, rewarding time packed full of memorable moments.

The existing provider has a capacity for 16 children per session and currently there are 25 families that use the after-school club each week. At present sessions are normally fully booked on Monday – Thursday, on Friday there is an average of 8 children attending. We are open from 3:15-6:00pm. Moving forward the new provider could accommodate up to 25 children per session and we would look at the strong possibility of the new provider running a holiday club in the future.

The successful provider will be committed to working in a close, collaborative but formal partnership with the school to provide the best possible outcomes for all the children. The expectation would be that the provider can demonstrate an Ofsted judgement of at least ‘Good’ in its most recent inspection. We would, however, also welcome applications from start up or new providers but we would need to discuss the requirement of acquiring Ofsted recognition. The initial contract will run for 2 years as part of a licence agreement.

Please contact mailto:admin@yealmpton-primary.devon.sch.uk to register your interest. An indication of interest will be followed up by an application pack via email.
