Oscar's Out of School Care

Oscar's Out of School Club is open before and after school in term time and offers holiday care too. All booking and payment is through an online system. You will require a registration email to access this system. Please contact the school office on admin@riponcathedral.n-yorks.sch.uk and you will be sent the link, thank you.

If you have already used your link, you can click here to be redirected to the booking website. There is a guide for using the site here.

When restrictions due to Coronavirus cease, our schedule will return to that published below. Please note that in the Autumn Term 2020, we will operate as follows:

Breakfast Club - from 8am to the start of school

After School Club from the end of school to 4.30/5.45pm

In order to ensure that children have adequate space to maintain some social distancing measures, Oscar’s will be in the hall for the foreseeable future. Children will be directed to the table for their group which will be set up with activities.

Only cereal, fruit and yoghurts will be provided for breakfast and in the afternoon there will be snacks. By avoiding cooking or preparing food, we will help to minimise any risks.

Drop off and pick up will be made via a one way system to the back of the hall. Instead of going into the main reception, you will walk behind the kitchen. There will be a door bell on the wooden gate so please ring and wait for the club supervisor.

When restrictions have been lifted, Oscar's will run as follows:

A usual Breakfast Club Session (£4 including breakfast)

8.00am -             Children are dropped off
