Childcare clubs will be run by school
The Duke of Bedford School is to take direct control of running the before and after-school club.
The decision to run the club directly was made after the current external provider decided to quit.
Headteacher Mrs Cathy Bailey has assured parents that all children who attend the club at present will continue to have a place and there will be no interruption of service.
The club, which provides a vital service for working parents, will move out of the Children’s Centre and into the main school building in March.
Mrs Bailey said that, in future, it is hoped to be able to expand the group to provide more places and also offer breakfasts to children attending the before-school club.
