Every child at the school is able to attend Basildon Extra. It runs before and after school every day and offers a range of activities.

First Day? Last Day? What? When?

BE will operate every day school is open, offering both breakfast club and extended club sessions.

Our activities will run through to 17th December 2021.  Every effort is made to avoid cancellations: in the event an activity cannot run on a particular afternoon, your child(ren) are encouraged to attend our extended club session instead.


Our BE Clubs, 3.30 – 4.30 p.m. daily are available across the ages and cater for a variety of interests.  In the interests of safety, these sessions are registered – the children are signed in by our Playleader in the hall, taken to the activity by its leader and returned to BE leader by the activity leader where the parents sign them out when they are picked up. Check out the timetable below. These activities must be paid for in advance when booking.

Our BE Breakfast, 7.45 - 9.00 am and BE Teatime 4.30 – 6.00 p.m. daily are available to all. Again in the interests of safety, these sessions are registered – the children are signed in by our Playleader in the hall and the parents sign them out when they are picked up.  We offer guided play and snack time from 4.30 – 5 p.m. and then a focus from 5 p.m. after our activities have finished, maximising the fun!  Check out the timetable below.


When we finish school at 2 p.m. there is no BE Teatime available.  Thank you for your understanding.

To book your child on to Basildon Extra please log on to your school buddy account.  


Please note cancellation of regular bookings require 5 days' notice or full payment.

It is a privilege to welcome some of our youngest school members to Basildon Extra.  Recognising that play is an all important part of learning, Bears will have the opportunity to continue to learn and play at BE in the Hub and Lemur classroom.  Bears will also be able to access Key Stage 1 clubs offered in the Hub or Lemur class as they feel they would like to.
