Basement Buddies Out of School Group is a community run organisation set up in September 2001 with help from the New Opportunities Fund to increase the availability and choice of childcare in the area.  The Group provides before school and after school club for pupils at Morley Victoria Primary School.

Our aim is to provide a high quality, safe and caring environment that provides opportunities for stimulating play, for children aged 3 to 11, before and after school and Training days.  The Group will achieve this aim through:

  • Giving all children the opportunity to express their feelings confidently so that they can fully enjoy themselves.
  • Cover most of the curriculum subject within the activities available.
  • A team of high quality staff, all of whom are qualified to Level 3 in Playwork.
  • By reviewing and encouraging new ideas and new ways to improve our service to your children.

Club Code

In our club we try to create an atmosphere of caring and respect for each other.

We aim to provide secure, safe, comfortable and pleasant surroundings.

We help children to recognise, accept and respect their differences.

We encourage children to have patience with each other to learn self-control and to develop a responsibility for their actions.

The club sets high standards and has high expectations in terms of behaviour and we endeavour to praise and encourage good examples of this.

These expectations are continually re-enforced by staff inside and out.


All children attending the Clubs must have completed registration and consent forms.  Some of this information is a legal requirement under the Children’s Act while the remainder ensures the Group’s staff can care safely for your child e.g. information on allergies.
