Benton Park NE7

Benton Park Primary School

Celebrating the success and achievements of everyone in our community

Benton Park offers high quality affordable childcare before and after school during term time only.

The Benton Buttons Club provides a safe, secure and relaxed environment where children can gain confidence and expand their social development. It offers a wide range of stimulating and enjoyable activities appropriate to the age and interests of the children. For children in the Reception classes these activities form part of the school’s Early Years provision.

The club is an integrated part of the school’s overall provision for children, with all staff directly employed by the Governing Body. Staff are subject to the appropriate security checks and attend regular training. The Headteacher is the club manager, with day-to-day responsibility for the club. A number of the club staff also work in school during the day. Children have access to indoor and outdoor activities, based in the dedicated room and outdoor spaces.
