Shining Stars

At St Barnabas Church of England Primary School we offer a before and after school club called Shining Stars.

The club is highly successful and extremely popular. The children who attend Shining Stars enjoy a caring, safe and fun environment, full of activities and opportunities to play, learn and socialise.  All children are welcome to attend as the club caters for children from Reception to Year 6.



We have four main aims at the Shining Stars Club:


  • To ensure our parents/carers have total peace of mind.
  • To treat each child as an individual.
  • To provide a relaxed home from home environment, which is fun.
  • To make parents/carers and children feel valued, fostering links between home and School.


Registration and Enrolment:

In order to plan your child’s care, new children need to be registered before they are able to attend. An enrolment form must be completed for each child that attends the club – providing contact numbers, details of allergies and any other information we need to know.

Once you have registered, you are asked at the beginning of each term to book the hours you require your child/children to attend the club each week.

The club can support families who work specific shift patterns where possible.
