Our breakfast club is run on a daily basis here at SinglePoint during term time with a charge of £2.50 per day. Payment for breakfast club is required at the beginning of the week. Your children will be supervised by our qualified and experienced staff from 7.55 until the start of their school day. We provide the children with cereal, toast and orange juice to set them up for the day ahead in a safe and welcoming environment. Children then have the opportunity to carry out small activities such as drawing or games when they have finished their breakfast. A walking bus service is provided for all pupils of St Francis Xavier.
If you are a registered family here at the hub we can offer you an After School club for your children delivered by our partner Complete Kidz. The club runs from 3pm-5.30pm at Single Point every day during term time with a cost of £8.00 per child per day. Additional siblings are chargable at £6.00 per day. We offer school pick-up’s from Christ Chruch Primary School and St Francis Xavier Primary School in Oldbury. During their time in club, children can get involved in fun and stimulating activities or relax after school in a safe environment with their friends. All children are provided with a light snack before they are collected at the end of the day. To book a place with our after school club please contact Complete Kidz on 0121 552 2006 or visit their website www.completekidz.co.uk for more information.

We provide our families and the community with events throughout the year that are held at the hub. We have previously joined forces with Bostin Arts who helped us produce art work with the community. We have also enjoyed the lantern making and parade at Christmas time that we carried out with Sandwell Youth Music. A Christmas event was held at the hub in December before our Christmas break offering festive family photo shoots, snow machine, Santa’s grotto and a nativity scene with real life donkeys! We look to run community events throughout the year and all ideas from our community are greatly appreciated
Our Family Network has been set up for the local community to play a major part in SinglePoint’s future. To have great links with the community and to know what the community want is really important to us to make sure we are meeting the needs of local people. The group meets every couple of months to help staff plan activities and opportunities for families. We really value your views so please contact us if you would like to get involved.
