Senlis Scallywags is a registered charity that caters for children aged 4 to 11 years. The Club was set up in 1994 and predominantly provides for children at Simon de Senlis Primary School, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities. In addition, the Disabled Children's Team (part of the Children and Families Information Service) use the Club to place children with a Statement of Educational Need for respite care.
We are run by a voluntary management committee and serve children and families from the local community and surrounding areas. We aim to provide affordable, high quality and inclusive wraparound childcare and to provide fun and appropriate recreational opportunities in a nurturing environment. To achieve this, we work to attract and retain high quality staff, advance the education and training of those responsible for providing the care and offer the use of a stimulating range of resources. We also provide opportunities for voluntary work so that interested parties can gain experience in the field.
The Club is registered by Ofsted is rated as "Outstanding" and is on the Early Years Register and the compulsory and voluntary parts of the Childcare Register. The setting receives support from the local authority and is a member of the Kids' Club Network. The Club achieved charitable status in 2013.
