Extended Care Provision
'Breakfast Club' runs each morning from 7:45am for children in *Y1-Y6. This is provided free to children for whom we receive Pupil Premium. For all other children there is a small charge that goes towards covering staff and grocery costs.
If a child has not attended before, parents/carers need to ask school whether a place at Breakfast Club is available for their child,as there is a limit to how many children can be accommodated. We do though try to be as flexible as possible:children do not have to attend every morning, but it helps if we know in advance which days provision is required.
Please note that no child should be on the school premises before 7:45am, as there is no one to supervise them, and the school can not be responsible for their safety before that time.
How it works:
From 7:45am - 8:30am a sports coach organises physical games aimed to enhance fitness. These are non competitive, with the emphasis on fun, rather than competition.
From 8:30am a breakfast is provided by school staff. A choice of breakfast items is offered. Children may attend for breakfast only, provided they do not turn up at school before 8:30am. Any child who attends the physical games session must however also stay for breakfast. If a child has finished their breakfast, they can, if they wish, go on to the yard from 8:45am, when the school gate opens for all other children and a member of staff is on duty.
*From September 2016, breakfast only(from 8:30am) is being trialled for Reception pupils.
After school care:
Care is offered, during term time until 5:30pm each evening (5:00pm each Friday) for all children. Although the provision is principally designed to cater for younger children, childcare can be provided for children up to the age of eleven years.
Children, who access local authority Nursery entitlement via the school’s Nursery unit, can access paid additional care during the core school day.
We aim that extended provision is as flexible as possible in meeting each family’s needs. Parents/carers should speak to either Early Years staff or the school secretary about their requirements and current hourly rates. Payment must be made in advance of any childcare arrangement in a particular week.
