Breakfast Club

We intend to operate Breakfast Club as this is usual practice for us. Breakfast Club is charged at £2.50 per session. Club places will be issued on a half-termly basis. Due to the logistics and layout that we have to adhere to, there is a set amount of places per year group and we will not exceed these. Please do not ring up and ask for a place on the day – we cannot and will not allocate one!

In line with Government Guidance, we have strict procedures to follow to enable us to operate safely:

  • Children will need to arrive between 8:00 am and 8:10; any child arriving after 8:10 will not be admitted to the club
  • Children will enter the breakfast club through the school hall doors, via the KS2 playground, through the sliding gate at the back of the car park. Foundation children are exempt from this, as they will need to enter through the Foundation door between 8 and 8:10 am and there are limited places
  • On entry, children will be seated and their coat will be placed on their chair or under the table and their bag will also be placed
  • Hands will be washed
  • The children will have a clearly named space and this will be their allocated seat – it will be cleaned after use
  • The children will have their breakfast brought to them and they will not move around at this time.
  • Children will play out on a rota system in their phases or will complete an individual activity
  • Children will go to their year group bubble at the end of breakfast club.

After School Club

We intend to operate After School Club as this is usual practice for us. However, we will not be able to offer After School Club to Foundation Stage children in the first instance.

After School Club is priced at £6.50 per session. We have limited spaces and places have been set within year groups and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Places will be issued on a half-termly basis. Due to the logistics and layout that we have had to adhere to there is a set amount of places per year group and we will not exceed these. Please do not ring up and ask for a place on the day – we cannot and will not allocate one!

In line with Government Guidance we have strict procedures to follow to enable us to operate safely:

  • Children will wait in their bubbles until all the children have been dismissed and then escorted to the After School Club
  • Children will enter the After School Club via the school internal hall doors and will sit in phased bubbles that are separated by 2 metre lines – the children will not mix between bubbles and will remain seated for the vast majority of the time
  • On entry children will be seated and their coat will be placed on their chair or under the table and their bag will also be placed there
  • Hands will be washed
  • The children will have a clearly named space and this will be their allocated seat – it will be cleaned after use
  • The children will have their snack brought to them and they will not move around at this time
  • Children will play out on a rota system in their phases or will complete individual activity at their place

Children will be dismissed in the usual way, please ensure that you socially distance when you pick up your child and do not enter the building.
