Keyworth Primary:

Holiday Club

Note from Mr Cresswell Excutive Headteacher of Crossdale and Keyworth Primary Schools

As the headteacher of two schools in Keyworth I know that families increasingly rely on holiday clubs, pre-school provision and before & after school clubs. With three children of my own, this type of provision has been incredibly important for my wife and I as we have juggled work and family priorities over the years.

As such, I am delighted to inform you that  Windmills Childcare is now offering these services to families in Keyworth. Based at Crossdale and Keyworth Primary schools, the aim of Windmills is to bring together a dedicated team who can work together to offer high-quality provision for children needing education and care outside of the normal school day.

The new team is made up of the staff that families know from Busy Bees at Crossdale and Keyworth Primary School. We are really pleased that Mrs Gerrard will be joining these familiar faces to take responsibility for monitoring and improving the quality of education and welfare offered at both settings. Mrs Gerrard is a very experienced  teacher who  is well known, and highly respected by many Keyworth families whose children have passed through her care. Mrs Gerrard will be leading the quality of provision at both schools at the breakfast & afterschool clubs, preschools and also at the holiday club. Her level of expertise will greatly support and enhance the skills of the existing team.

Windmills Childcare is a charity set up by school Governors to run the provision detailed above. I will be the chair of the new charity and school governors, including  the long standing chair of governors for both schools, are part of the Trustee team who will ensure that Windmills Childcare delivers a high-quality service for families in Keyworth. As a charity we have no profit incentive - we simply aim to be the best, most flexible and most cost-effective provider of childcare in the area.

Although we are based at Crossdale and Keyworth Primary Schools, the preschool provision and holiday club is open to all families, regardless of the primary school their children attend.

Kind regards,

Peter Cresswell

Executive Headteacher
