Mrs Such added: "Our after school club is to be run by highly skilled and dedicated staff.
"Children will have opportunities to participate in art and design activities, develop their computer skills, do their homework, listen to stories and will be served a snack."
"Each week is based on a theme and the children will be doing various activities.
"This week's theme is myself.
"The children will be making collage pictures and gingerbread people to look like themselves, talking about their homes and drawing pictures of their houses."
The club is initially for families who attend the school but there may be places for other pupils who live locally.
It will run every weekday between 3pm and 5.30pm costing £4.50 per session and places are payable in advance.
