My Name is Patrick Franks, and I will be the provider of wraparound care for the whole of Our Lady’s Catholic Primary School from September. We are also planning to run holiday clubs from 8.30am-5.30pm to complete the wrap around care you may also need, all year round.
Some of you may already know me, as I already run the after school provision for key stage 2 and run clubs all over Northamptonshire. We also run Holiday clubs at the Wellingborough Methodist church on Kingsway, which many from this school have attended in the past
Since October 2014 and alongside the sports coaching I have been running Lask Childcare; originated at Our Lady’s Catholic primary school in Wellingborough. In 2018 we also began to provide wrap around care at Hayfield Cross Primary school in Kettering. We were absolutely delighted to be recently visited by Ofsted who awarded us a ‘Met’ rating which is the top of three possible outcomes. Please find a link to our report here - https://files.ofsted.gov.uk/v1/file/50164802

Once registration is complete there is a monthly booking form to fill out for the start of the month, so we can make sure we can accommodate staff and children’s ratios.
How do we pay?
We ask for payment with your booking forms before the start of the month to secure your child’s place. Our preferred methods of payments can be made by bank transfer to the account on the booking forms you will receive or by childcare vouchers, The info for this will be available shortly. We do also accept cash payments. Sorry we are no longer able to accept cheques.
