'We show our love for God in the way we treat each other. Together we follow Jesus by learning and sharing our gifts'

The staff, pupils, governors and families of SSPP are deeply saddened at the news of the death of Queen Elizabeth II. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family at this time.”

  Breakfast Club and After School Club

I am delighted to inform you that breakfast club and afterschool club will commence at SSPP, as from 5th September 2022. The clubs will be run by Young Inspirations, an organisation known to the school and many parents. Children from SSPP, who currently attend Young Inspirations, will now attend the club at the school site; all the previous terms and conditions will remain the same.

‘Young Inspirations After School and Breakfast Club supports working families in Ilford by providing quality childcare in a safe and stimulating environment outside of normal school hours.

We provide childcare for children of Primary School age at our Breakfast Club, Afterschool Club and Holiday Play Schemes.

We provide a happy environment with friendly staff to cover addition hours to suit your family needs. Our Out of School Club encourages all children to become happy well rounded individuals who are independent to build on their self-confidence. Within the club, separate areas of learning are available so children can chose what they would like to play or engage with, such as art & craft areas, construction area, role play, outdoors play opportunities and much more. It is our belief that this is your child's time to relax and explore through play, while being closely supervised by our qualified and experienced staff. As well as your child having the opportunity to play independently or with others they may also chose to join in one of our daily adult led activities. During club time there will be a selection of fruit and drinks available as well as a healthy evening meal.’
