Sherpa Kids Club Linaker
Welcome to Sherpa Kids Club at Linaker Primary.
You can contact Sue Moir at any time on 07951 540919 to enquire about places, information etc.
You can ring the club mobile for any issues during club hours (ie 7.30am to 8.45am and 3pm to 6pm.) The number is 07549 208889. This number is not in use outside of club hours.
I am delighted to be running the Breakfast and After School Club service at Linaker school. Even though I know we are all going through difficult times at present, new children have been joining Sherpa Kids Club over the last few weeks and we would love to see even more of you in our club to enjoy the activities we have to offer (please see below our picture gallery.)
Temporary closure for After School Club
Due to a staff member testing positive on Wed 23rd June, there will be no After School Club until Monday 5th July due to the majority of staff having to isolate. Breakfast Club is open as usual. I apologise for the inconvenience and look forward to seeing everyone back on 5th. Let's hope this is the last forced closure we will have!
As previously mentioned, due to financial difficulties caused by the pandemic, it had been proposed that Energy Kidz would come in after the half term to run the club under a new name. For a number of reasons there has been a delay with this event and I will be carrying on running the club under the name of Sherpa Kids. Energy Kidz will be working with me to provide support and we are presently working on a plan that will take the club forwards positively so that it is able to provide a full holiday club service as well as term time care.
We are working towards providing a summer holiday club for the whole of the summer holidays. This is, however, dependent on numbers attending so we do hope it will be well supported. Mr Horner has joined the Sherpa Kids team and he is going to be working throughout the summer in Summer Club as team leader. Myself and Mr Horner will be planning Summer Club over the coming weeks to put together an exciting programme. We will be purchasing some new equipment, especially outdoor equipment so that we can take full advantage of the brilliant outdoor area that we have.
Thanks to the Government's 'Holiday and Activities Fund' sherpa Kids Club is applying for funding to provide free places in Summer Club for any child who receives free school meals. Children will be entitled to free care for 4 hours (which amounts to a half day in the club) for 4 days of the week over 4 weeks of the summer with healthy food and enriching activities. I will provide more information about this in due course.
We have now secured the funding for the HAF fund and invite parents whose children receive free school meals to apply for free places over the summer. Letters will be sent out to families concerned with information about applying. We may be busy so don't delay in registering your interest. If you have any questions or problems with the application, my number is at the top of this page. Feel free to call and I will assist you.
Our present theme is 'The Euros.' The children will be trying some art and craft activities based around football or countries in Europe. We will also be practising our football skills in the garden.
Sadly, Ange retired at the end of May after a long employment with the out of school club here at Linaker School. She has been a fabulous asset to our club and we will all miss her greatly, both children and staff. We wish her a very happy (and relaxing) retirement and all the best for the future. She will be back from time to time to help out though which will be lovely. I will be working in place of Ange as manager after half term.

Hope to see you soon
