Addington School

After School Club





Thumbs Up Club, who run the After School Club at Addington, have communicated their intention to close the club at the end of this term.  For those parents who rely on ASC, this is unfortunate news. Despite their expertise in running provision for children with additional needs, there are significant long standing difficulties in recruiting staff which led to last minute cancellations and this caused uncertainty for users.

From September 2024, Addington will be in the position that we will not have an afterschool club and although this is the same for other local special schools, we recognise that this is a provision that will be missed.  We intend to communicate with the local authority including social care to discuss impact from Thumbs Up Club’s decision on our families, as currently the school is not in a position financially to provide wraparound care.
