SFO / After-school Care
SFO is a service for parents who need care for their child outside school hours. It is not an extension of the school day, but a time to play and take part in other activities. During term-time children will mostly play outside. During the school holidays, activities will be theme based and may sometimes involve excursions.
Activities take place inside the SFO area of the school, outside in the school playground and excursions in the school holidays.
SFO (After-school Care) is available for children from PYP 1 to PYP5. You can sign up for SFO through the parent portal, after your child has been offered a place at BISS Sentrum.
SFO opening hours
AM Session: from 7:30 – 8:30
PM Session: from 15:00 until before 16:30*
*Children must be collected by 16:30 and not at 16:30. If you are late there will be a charge. This is because staff will have to stay longer than their contracted hours if you are later than 16:30 to ensure your children are safe.

SFO Daily Activities
In the morning when the students arrive at SFO, they are offered quiet activities like reading, colouring, playing cards and board games. We start to tidy up at 8.15, so students can get ready to go to their classes at 8.30.
The afternoon session will start straight after school finishes and will continue until 16:30. During this session students will be offered a range of activities such as games, cooking, and arts and crafts, depending on the season. Activities will be held both indoors and outdoors depending on weather.
