If your child also wishes to take part in any of the after school clubs which are taking place this can be arranged too with pick up and drop off between the clubs to the After School Club. 
 
If your child attends from 5pm-5.50pm, the Link Club staff will support your child/children in completing any home learning which has been set as we recognise if your child is not being collected until later that this will take the added pressure off you as parents to do this when they get home.
The children will have the full use of the IT suite in which they can go on and do their Reading Plus or Reading Eggs, any phonic, spelling or maths online home learning and will also have the adult to complete any reading with books too. The staff will also try to complete any Reading/ Homework diaries each evening where work has been finished. 
 
 
We really hope you like the amendments we have made to improve this offer and choose to support this service in order for it to continue at Winwick. 
 
If you wish to use this service or get any further information then please email winwick_primary@sch.warrington.gov.uk to arrange the bookings of sessions.
Elin Rees will support you and guide you through using ParentPay and any voucher schemes available.
