Supervised care is available between 3.45 and 4.00 p.m. on the playground, during which period children may be collected by their parents.

Children with siblings at Swallows can be taken to this campus by minibus so that parents only have to collect children from one site. However, this service must be booked in advance or before 3.00pm on the day via the online booking system found on the school website, and is only available at 3.45pm.

At 4.00 p.m. Clubs and After-care will begin. After-care from 4.00—5.00 p.m. will be for children to do their homework.  Clubs will last until 5.00 p.m. at which point staff supervising children will take them to the playground to pass them directly to their parents.  Any children not collected will be taken to After-care which is available until 6.00 p.m.  There is no charge for clubs and activities run by King Henry VIII School staff but external providers (for clubs such as Karate) will charge.  The activities for which there will be charges are made clear in the clubs and activities leaflet sent out at the start of each term.

After-care is available at Hales & Swallows from 5.00 p.m.— 6.00 p.m. As this entails the school having to employ additional staff, a charge is made for this service.
