Wraparound and Out-of-Hours Care

'Berties' is the name for Albert Bradbeer Primary Academy's before and after School Club.

We provide quality care for children who attend our school. All the staff also have other roles within the school and children know them well.

Berties charging policy has been set up to ensure to provide affordable care for parents.


  • Morning Session (8.00 to 9.10am) - £3.00
  • Afternoon Session (3.20 to 4.15pm) - £3.50
  • Afternoon Session (3.20 to 6.00pm) - £6.50
  • A late fee applies for children who are collected after 6.00pm at an additional cost of £5.00 per 15 minutes.

Reserving Places

  • Clubs can be booked and paid for online or using the schoolcomms app. Please contact the school for more information.
  • Booking forms must be completed in advance and payment is due on the Wednesday of the week before the sessions begin.
  • If additional sessions are required after the booking form is received every effort will be made to accommodate them and the fee will be due immediately.
  • Once sessions are booked they are chargeable. Unfortunately no credit can be given for absences.

Making Payments

  • Payment can be made by cash or cheque – made payable to Albert Bradbeer Primary Academy with your cheque card number on the back.
  • Monthly or half termly payments can be made.
  • All monies must be handed into the school office and should be checked and signed as received.
  • There is no reduction for part of a session attended.
  • Children may not attend Berties unless the appropriate booking forms have been completed and fees paid.
  • Credits will be given for any sessions booked and not attended due to school closure in unforeseen circumstances.
  • If childcare payments are made by an outside party, ie. college, employer, we are happy to accept BACS payments.

Bertie's management reserve the right to withdraw the offer of a place at any time.
