Cosmic Kids Club


Children in KS1 will be collected by Miss N. Whitfield and KS2 will be collected by Mrs K. Stephenson from their classrooms at the end of the school day and taken to the club. Early Years children will remain in the Cool Room with a member of club staff as this is where the club is based.  

Parents/Carers should collect their children from the Early Years door at the end of their session.  Should you need to contact the club during session times you can phone using the following number: 07301219981.  Please note this number is only for the after school club.




Cosmic Kids does not provide a full ‘tea’ type meal but snacks and a drink will be provided. Fresh water is always accessible.


Club Opening Times


Cosmic Kids Club is open term time only from 3.30pm – 5.30pm.

When the Academy closes early on the last day of term there will be no club available that day.

Our booking system will only allow you to book available dates. Dates will be released on a half termly basis and you will be notified by text when they go live on the system.

MagicBooking Online System


We are pleased to introduce our booking system – Magicbooking – that we use for all Wraparound Care (after school club) bookings.

Our Magicbooking link for parents is: Please click here


How to join: Your details automatically transfer to Magicbooking from our MIS system. Please ensure that you have provided the Academy with an email address as you will need this to login.


Logging in: When first logging in, when you get to the login page, simply click on the ‘Forgotten Password’ link to reset your password, then complete the registration process for each of your children (you will only need to do this once).


Making bookings: Once registration is complete, you can book (and cancel) childcare sessions. You can book from any mobile device as well as from a PC, laptop etc.


You will be prompted to read and accept our Terms & Conditions before completing your booking.


Timeframes: You need to book your slots at the club 72 hours in advance. This is so that we can ensure we have adequate staff for each session.

Cancellations can be made at any time, however, if a session is cancelled with less than 48 hours’ notice you will be charged for that session.


Payment: The system is a pre-payment system, so you need to pay at the time of booking. You can pay by debit/credit card or by using Childcare Vouchers, Tax Free Childcare or Universal Credit. Please use your child’s name and the booking reference as the payment reference.

A monthly instalment plan is available if you are booking several sessions in advance, in which case you will be notified by email 5 days before the next instalment is due.


NB: whilst the system will allow you to make one booking with the promise of payment via instalment or Childcare Vouchers, you will not be permitted to make additional/adhoc bookings once your account is in arrears.

Top Tips

When making a voucher payment please note it can take 5 working days for the money to arrive in our bank account and it is not until this point that the payment will be applied to your account (by a member of office staff). It is therefore recommended that you ‘overpay’ if at all possible, so that your account always remains in credit, giving you the flexibility to book/cancel sessions at short notice. NB: you do not have to pay the exact amount owed, you can pay a lump sum into your Magic Booking account, which saves you from having to make lots of small individual payments.

 Payments (and the resulting statement) are associated with the parent/carer, not the child. Therefore if you have more than one child, you don’t have to make separate payments per child. You can pay one amount, and that will be allocated against any outstanding monies held against the parent/carer account.
