The Community Learning and Information Centre (CLIC) is housed within Barons Court Primary School and offers a large range of family learning opportunities to the local community. The CLIC is funded separately from the school and works in partnership with Southend Adult Community College (SACC) to provide courses and projects for our families. We also offer a fully supervised crèche facility within the CLIC, where we care for and entertain the children whilst the adults enjoy our CLIC facilities. We care for children from birth up until their 5th birthday. Staff in the crèche are either qualified or experienced in looking after children. Crèche spaces can be booked at the school office, when adults sign up for a course, places are allocated on a first come first served basis.

Aims of CLIC

  • Provide opportunities for pupils, together with their families, to take part in activities and receive services which build stronger positive interaction.
  • Provide extended services and community use of facilities for activities that take place out of school hours, including adult and family learning.
  • To ensure opportunities for life-long learning skills.
  • To develop a sense of community at Barons Court Primary School and Nursery.

The CLIC is a fantastic facility that benefits families and children.  Sign up to a course today or pop in to suggest possible courses that you would be interested in.

What people say about our CLIC

"The course was excellent, it was lovely to do something for myself and meet new people."

"CLIC has given me the confidence and has reignited my passion for the career path I originally wanted to take."

"I have gained a new qualification with the opportunity of a new job. I have also made new friends and have refreshed my knowledge."

Fathers Reading Every Day programme (FRED)

Following the success of our FRED programme run by the Fatherhood Institute we are continuing to implement this programme through our CLIC facility. The aim of FRED is to get more dads reading to their children regularly, by challenging them to read together every day for a month – long enough to get the reading habit established.

Why? Well fathers and father-figures (stepfathers, grandfathers and uncles, for example) have really important and unique impacts on children’s educational outcomes . In schools elsewhere, FRED has been shown to help children do better not just at reading, but at writing and even maths too.

Baron’s Court dads are already taking part in FRED, and the school has big plans for developing the programme in future and building the involvement of dads and father-figures into their children’s learning even more. If you would like any further information then please speak to Mrs Turner or Mr Andrews about your involvement in the project.

"It was great to see all of my children so excited about reading together."

"I gained so much from this project - the knowledge of reading with my child is about so much more than just a book!"

"This project has made be feel a real integral part of the Barons Court community."
