Extended Services

Vauxhall Sure Start Children's Centre


Vauxhall Sure Start Children's Centre brings together a wide range of services for children from birth to 5 years old, and for their families, pregnant women and their partners. The centre is a one-stop shop bringing a range of services together within the community, including health, family support and ante-natal services for parents and carers.


These services are  for everyone within the Central and Kirkdale wards, and beyond. We hope to make it easier for parents to obtain the range of services they need for themselves and their families in the early years of their children's lives.

Out - of - Hours - Care


Our school has a number of activities that take place out of the normal school hours. Among these are:


  • Breakfast Club - daily from 8.00 am to 8.55 am. Children pay a daily rate and receive a variety of hot and cold food and drinks.They take part in supervised activities within school.
  • Extra - Curricular Activities take place after school. These vary each half term to include different clubs, such as, multi-sport, dance, gymnastics, homework, reading for pleasure, gardening, comics, debating and Y6 tuition. Parents are notified by letter of upcoming clubs as they change.


Educational Visits


Our pupils derive great educational benefit from taking part in organised visits. These give the opportunity to develop skills and provide experiences beyond those available in the classroom. The school actively promotes the use of exciting, highly motivating environments and activities to stimulate pupils of all ages and help them to learn. We follow the Local Authority guidelines on educational visits and residentials, and all the recommended procedures are put in place. All trips are planned well in advance.


Parents play a vital role in such visits and it is important that they co-operate with the school regarding the behaviour of their children and about such matters as filling in and signing consent forms, providing emergency contact telephone numbers and supplying all necessary details of their child's medical conditions, dietary requirments or allergies.
