The TP is a before school club for the pupils of Tynsel Parkes. Here your child can play and learn in purpose built facility with health and safety of the children is a priority.  The TP also promotes outdoor learning and has access to Tynsel Parkes’ outdoor facilities. Security is thorough with entrance doors being locked at all times and no child being allowed home with anyone other than a parent or other nominated person and by prior arrangement with the staff.  The TP gates will be open from 7.30am.


TP will provide structured play and activities to educate whilst entertaining the children. Although the emphasis is on fun, Ofsted do require evidence that there is planned activity and that the children’s needs are met.

The added benefit of the extended care service is that the staff who run the TP are also employed by the academy as learning support staff or lunchtime supervisors, consequently they have our school values at the forefront of everything they do! They are committed to teaching the children new skills and games during their time in the club as well as providing lots of fun with relaxation time if needed.

Overall, our aim is to provide a mix of learning and fun to encourage development in a way that is both relevant to the children and relaxed.
