Barnsbury Buddies

Information for Parents Barnsbury

Buddies offers quality out-of-hours care to pupils of Barnsbury Primary School and other local schools. As part of our care, we support the Values led education provided by Barnsbury School, encouraging the children to show their values and model desire behaviour eg. patience, honesty and friendship, at play

We are registered with Ofsted and managed by Governors of Barnsbury Primary School & Nursery, with a fully qualified manager responsible for day to-day care.

The club aims to provide children with a fun and nurturing environment in which they can socialise with their peers as they would at home after a school day. There are facilities for indoor and outdoor play, plus board, team and card games, craft, WII and reading corner, construction kits and many other activities.

Come and Join the fun!

Safe and Secure

Children attending from Barnsbury Primary School and Nursery are escorted to and from buddies and must be collected by a known person at the end of the session. Unfortunately we cannot offer an escort service from other schools at present. Children are only allowed to be collected by a known person at the end of the session. Our registration form asks for full details of the child’s carers, medical history, known allergies and emergency arrangements, as well as listing our behaviour expectations and other terms and conditions. These are all designed to help you know that your child will be safe and secure with us.
