The club is run by a team of carers, many of whom have other positions within the school e.g. LSA’s (learning support assistants), dinner ladies.

The aim of the club is to provide a fun and interesting place for the children to play in until they are collected by Mum/Dad/nominated person – sometimes we do this too well and they don’t want to leave when collected!

We also provide a healthy snack meal to all children and try to cater for any special dietary needs as best we can.

We are based in the school’s Junior Hall (the bigger one), and we have our own equipment including toys, dressing up clothes, art/colouring equipment etc. as well as the use of some of the schools equipment. Street dancing and multi sports available on certain nights.

SMASH is open to anyone – not just pupils at the school so if you are interested in joining in then please contact us on 07969 013520 Our opening times are 3:30pm to 5:30pm every St Mary’s school day. Non-St Mary’s children must arrange their own transport to and from the club.

In the future we intend to open on teacher training days and school holidays.

Staff Qualifications: First aid equipment available. Level 3 in Playwork.
