Golden Eagle Care is operated by staff at St John's School. We provide quality care during term time for Nursery - Year 6 pupils registered at the school.
Our before school provision is called the Sunrise Club, which is open from 8.00am - 8.45am. This provision provides a healthy start to the pupils’ day with breakfast and childcare provided. It allows improvement in punctuality and gives parents a safe environment for early morning childcare needs.
Our after school provision is called the Sunset Club, which operates from 3.15pm - 6.00pm. The service is flexible and bridges the gap between school and home. It is designed to meet the needs of pupils with fun packed activities and healthy snacks provided, whilst also providing parents with consistent and quality childcare.
Golden Eagle Care is fully integrated into the school’s ethos and practices and provides your child with a positive care and play experience within a safe and fun environment. Pupils attending Golden Eagle Care will have access to extended group activities and opportunities for play that are both fun and challenging.

The government continues to make available tax free vouchers for before and after school care. These vouchers are commonly referred to as childcare vouchers and are obtained through employers’ salary sacrifice schemes. As the school provides a wraparound care service, Golden Eagle Care, it is able to accept these vouchers.
Childcare vouchers are only acceptable for the following activities: Sunrise Club (breakfast club), Sunset Club (afterschool care) and Holiday Clubs located on the schools registered premises.
Vouchers are NOT eligible for use for the following: Dinner Money, School Trips during school hours or related to the school curriculum, and residential or day trips that take place away from the school’s registered premises.
