The DfE expects you to provide wraparound childcare
All schools that teach primary school-aged pupils are expected to have wraparound care on the school site, unless there’s a good reason not to.
Wraparound care includes breakfast clubs and after-school clubs. This provision can help parents balance work with family commitments, while providing children with a broader range of experiences.
See the DfE's wraparound childcare guidance for more details (page 7 and 8).
Note: most of this article is relevant to Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) settings too, and the final section below has EYFS-specific guidance. References to 'parents' throughout this article should be taken to mean 'parents/carers'.
