  • The Clubs are available for all children from Reception to Year 6.
  • The Clubs are located in the Club Room. Parents/carers are asked to enter and collect their children via the entrance to this room, accessed down the right side entrance to the school in the corner of the car park (follow the building, turning right and right again).
  • Parents/carers are asked to agree to and sign a contract alongside a registration document for both clubs prior to booking.

 

Breakfast Club

Children will get a choice of cereals, toast and fruit to begin their day. Parents/carers are responsible for informing the Breakfast Club Leader of any dietary requirements. After the children have eaten, they will have the opportunity to get involved in a number of activities. These include:

  • Board games
  • Exercise activities (inside using the hall or outside)
  • Lego or construction games
  • Comics or books
  • Computer activities
  • Craft, drawing, puzzles
  • Or, at the request of parents/carers, be heard reading or getting help with homework.
    At the end of the session, children will be taken to their respective classrooms by the Breakfast Club Leader.
      

 

After School Club

Children up to the end of Year 2 will be collected directly from their classrooms by the After School Club Leader. Children from Year 3 to Year 6 will make their own way to the After-School Club room.

Following registration, any child attending a separate after-school club activity will join the other children attending the activity. At the end of the activity, they will be brought back to the After School Club.

The children will be offered a light snack and drink. Snacks may be cereal bars, savoury biscuits, toast or similar. Only snacks will be provided not tea. Parents/carers are responsible for informing the After School Leader of any dietary requirements. Typical activities will include:

  • Art and craft activities (painting aprons/shirts will be provided).
  • Sports activities and team games using the hall or playground.
  • Computer activities where available.
  • Cooking using the school’s dedicated cookery area, (a small fee may be charged in advance for ingredients).
  • ‘Chill out’ area where books and comics will be available.
  • Lego and construction.
  • Board games.
  • Help with homework, reading or other learning.

 

Parents/carers may donate toys and games to the After-School Club but children should not bring anything valuable from home.
The Breakfast and After School Clubs are not responsible for the loss or damage to any items brought from home.

 

Behaviour

The school rules and behaviour policy will be followed to ensure consistency for children at the club. We expect good behaviour and respect for others. We use various techniques to encourage good behaviour including praise and rewards such as stickers and certificates.
The Breakfast and After School Club reserve the right to withdraw the service if a child's behaviour is consistently unacceptable.
