Brampton Kids Club Ltd is currently owned, managed and run by Nic and Nicola and supported by a dedicated team of 14 additional Playworkers. Within the team, 6 of us hold Level 3 Diplomas in Playwork.
Nicola has been associated with BKC since it first emerged back in 1999 and has seen the Club grow each year. Nic has been with BKC since mid-2000’s and together they became owners in 2010 after the Club faced closure.
Nicola continues to build a strong relationship with Brampton Village Primary School, working full time in the Foundation Stage and acting as our EYFS Co-ordinator, liaising daily between both groups. Nic has been a School Governor since 2006 and has supported the school through the amalgamation of the Infant and Junior Schools, the introduction and development of Brambles Pre-school and to the present day, as it grows further into a fully-fledged 3-form entry school.
Nic is currently a member of the Ofsted Step 3 Complaints Panel. He has supported Ofsted externally, as an independent practitioner, providing insight and feedback when requested. He also attended the 2019 Ofsted consultation process and fed back to support the review process for the new Ofsted Inspection Framework (published May 2019).
Both Nicola and Nic are current Designated Safeguarding Leads.
During the Breakfast Club and After-School Club the team includes Barbara, Catherine, Coral, James, Janette, Laura, Magda, Rose, Sandie, Sue and Tracy. During the Holiday Clubs we are also joined by Libby and Sophie.
All staff are appointed subject to Enhanced DBS checks being successfully processed. Within the team we have 9 members who are currently qualified in Paediatric First Aid (12-hour course). Other qualifications include Intermediate and Basic Food Hygiene.
Other roles supported within the Club include Designated Persons for SENCo, ENCo, Behaviour Management, Prevent Duty, Domestic Violence Awareness and Health & Safety.
