The children of The Royal School are looking for someone to provide an exciting after-school club. The homework club is a new initiative for the school and the person that leads this club will need to be caring, understand how to provide a safe environment for children as well as having a sense of adventure and creativity.
At The Royal School we believe that children need experiences to further their learning and part of the Play Leaders responsibility will be planning and supervising exciting and creative experiences for the children. The Play leader will supervise up to 10 children daily. We anticipate the children will be involved in both outdoor and indoor play including, arts, crafts, cooking, sports and forest school activities.
