Wrap Around Care

Childcare at The Mead Schools

We offer childcare that is available outside the normal hours of the school day for children of compulsory school age or children aged three and four who attend our nurseries (if applicable). The key aim is to provide suitable childcare to allow parents to work or study. These services are sustained through parental fees, and parents may be eligible for Childcare Tax Credit to support the costs.

There are various services available:

  • Before school care – before the start of the school day.
  • After school care – from the end of the school day for up to three hours.
  • Holiday care – for care during the school holidays.
  • Under-fives – childcare integrated with early years education.

Puffins Holiday Club

Puffins holiday club runs through some of the holidays and is located at Castle Mead School in Trowbridge. The days are full of fun activities for all school aged children and runs from 8.30pm until 5.30pm.
