We are delighted to be operating our outstanding Childcare provision at Holy Family Catholic Primary School (HF) from July 2021. Furthermore, PSP will now be delivering; Breakfast Clubs (Early Bees), After School Clubs (Creative and Sporty Bees) and School Holiday Camps.

 

The pandemic has had a significant impact on our future generations Physical and Mental development. Therefore, with this being our focus, we will use the power of Sport and Creative Arts to ensure all our participants are interactive in a safe and positive environment.
