Time Out Club

Time Out Club is an Ofsted registered, charitable organisation which provides flexible wrap around care exclusively for families of children attending Manland Primary School.

Time Out Club provides both breakfast and after-school care. The club is open Monday to Friday, during Manland Primary School’s term times.

We aim to create an entertaining environment where all the children who attend can play, create, learn, socialise and most importantly, have fun.

The club is run on a day to day basis by the Club Manager, Diane Fensome; Admin Manger, Lesley Martin; and Business Manager, Anna Read. We have a fabulous team of enthusiastic adult and student play-workers. All Time Out Staff and Trustees are DBS checked. Time Out Club is governed by a trust of parent/teaching volunteers.

Staff to Child Ratio’s

We operate a 1:8 staff to child Ratio.

We have both adult members of staff and students playworkers.


Our registers and booking system are all electronic and we use an online system called Cheqdin to help with the day to day management of the club.

Once registered with Time Out Club, you will be sent an invite to use our software system.


We have a large choice of crafts, toys and equipment for both indoor and out-door play. Every day, we try to make sure that all the children get to go outside and play.

We liaise with Manland teaching staff to ensure their curriculum is incorporated in our activity planning.

Child Initiated Learning

Children at Time Out are encouraged to make their own play choices from the huge array of activities we provide. Our principles are based on the play work principles where our staff are on hand to help and assist the children when asked to do so.

“It’s just brilliant, and is one of the best things about Manland School. The staff are really caring, the club is well run, it is flexible and aware of the needs of working parents. I feel lucky that my child can attend it.”

“A great club ran by friendly and approachable people.”

“We use it on an occasional ad hoc basis (and appreciate the flexibility) and as such find there is plenty for the children to do. Very good that they go outside.”
