Before and after school provision

Schools Out is the Whipton Barton Federation before and after-school child-care provision and was formed in April 1994 after identifying a need for affordable childcare for school-aged children. We started up with a grant from Devon & Cornwall Playlines with the support of Whipton Campus Centre.  We are now part of Whipton Barton Junior School and are all employed by Devon County Council.  We are an established out of school club providing quality childcare to all children.


The School’s Out Club aims to provide:-

  1. Quality affordable childcare
  2. A safe and stimulating environment
  3. Activities appropriate to children’s age and stage of development
  4. The opportunity to enhance children’s learning and social skills through play
  5. An environment which reflects our equal opportunities policy


Children are individuals and have different needs.  We value these differences and do our best to provide a wide range of play experiences to meet these needs.The core staff are trained to NVQ Level 3 standard and attend other training opportunities on a regular basis.


School’s Out is regularly inspected by OFSTED who are happy with the standards within the club and have highlighted good practice in a number of areas.
