Primary Schools are now required to publish alongside their Performance information a list of their childcare provision making it easier for parents to know what is available.
New Brancepeth Primary School offers a range of childcare provision which we have listed below:
Early Morning Fitness Sessions
The Early Morning Fitness Sessions begin at 7:45am and continues until 8:30am. These are organised by a qualified coach. Children taking part in the fitness session should not arrive before 7:45am. They will not be able to get changed into PE kit, as there will not be staff to supervise changing at that time of day, so activities take place in normal school clothes. We can offer these sessions to children from Y1 to Y6.
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.
Breakfast club runs from 8:30 a.m. onwards for Reception pupils.
Breakfast Club begins at 8:30am and is run by school staff. Children should not arrive before that time. They will be supervised while having cereal, toast and a drink. Children attending the fitness session will also need to attend breakfast club to ensure continued supervision.
The cost of staying for fitness session and breakfast club is £2:00 per child per day.
The cost of breakfast club only is £1:00 per day.
We understand that some children will only want to attend on certain days. Children should bring payment each day they attend, although if they are staying all week, payment can be made in advance on a Monday morning. We can offer breakfast to children from Nursery age to Y6. Nursery and Reception children attend breakfast club in the EYFS setting.
After School Clubs
We offer a range of different clubs at our school and these usually change each term. You can view our list of After School Clubs on our website.
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. Please click on the link to download the New Brancepeth Primary School after school booking form to book sessions.
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.
