Welcome to St Joseph's Out of School Club

St Joseph’s Out of School Club (OOSC) is run as a charitable organisation to provide essential wrap around care for the pupils of St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School. The OOSC operates from the Leigh building within the school grounds.


Please note that during the current situation owing to COVID-19, variations will be made to OOSC's standard operation to comply with Government Guidelines. Changes will include, but not be limited to:

OOSC will operate from the school hall, but children will be outside as much as possible. 
Parents will not be permitted onto the school premises at any time. Children will be collected and picked up from a designated area. 

Opening times:

Breakfast: 7.45am - school opening

Afternoon: 3.15pm - 6.00pm



The OOSC provides a wealth of activities including (but not limited to):

  • Inside activities - Cooking, craft, roll play, Lego, book club, imagination play, board games.  Activities are both child and adult lead.

  • Outside play - free play area, Didi cars, skipping, netball, imagination play, den making, tennis etc.

Every term a theme is adopted and activates are organised relating to this. For example, a recent topic was Travel. Topic activities included: cooking recipes from different countries, travel agency role play, a World Drumming Workshop and Games from around the world session provided by a third party.

The OOSC team firmly believe Sir Ranulph Finnes' mantra "there is no bad weather, only inappropriate clothing", which is why full waterproofs and wellies are available to all children attending OOSC. This enables them to enjoy the superb outside space available, no matter what the weather. 


Any child attending St Joseph's Catholic Primary School may attend OOSC, subject to being registered on the online booking system 

Children not registered on this system will not be able to attend OOSC, so even if you don't require a space at the moment, we would recommend you take five minutes to register now so that you could use the Club in case of emergencies.
