Wrap Around Care

Breakfast Club Arrangements

Breakfast Club starts at 8am every morning.

It is a requirement to have booked your child into our breakfast club childcare provision by midday on Friday of the previous week. Sessions are paid for at the time of booking via ParentPay. It is solely parents/carers responsibility to book their child into breakfast club by the agreed deadline. Booking is done via ParentPay and office staff will consult with the ParentPay system to draw up weekly registers each Friday afternoon after the booking system closes.

 

From January 2019 we have been working with the National Schools Breakfast Programme to provide every child in our school with a healthy breakfast free of charge.  From January 2020 we have continued to receive support from the National Schools Breakfast Programme who provide a 40% subsidy on our food costs. During the academic year 2022/23 we will again utilise our Pupil Premium funding to cover associated food costs, as we know the importance of a healthy breakfast in terms of impacting positively on learning and physical outcomes for children.


There are 2 ways in which your child can access free breakfast food:


Option 1 – Breakfast Club with Childcare - £2 per day
The existing Breakfast Club continues to provide childcare if you need it, but the food element is free of charge.  From January 2021 the cost of this service will continue to be £2, which will pay for the rising staffing costs required to supervise the children and serve breakfast.  This service is available from 8am to 8:45am.  A register is kept and sessions will be charged for.  Breakfast Club with Childcare must be paid for in advance via ParentPay.


The National School Breakfast Programme understandably specifies the items that we can serve our children.  All food on the menu is in line with the School Food Standards.  The following breakfast food will be served:


Bagels, porridge oats, cornflakes, crisp rice, shreddies, cheerios and milk.
Diluted fresh apple and orange juice or water to drink.


Option 2 – Bagels are served in classrooms to minimise any risk of transmission.

This is an exciting and really worthwhile opportunity which we hope the children will continue to take full advantage of. Our aim is to ensure that children are as ready as possible for their learning. Research shows the vital importance of a healthy breakfast to start the day.

 

After School Childcare

Meet the Staff

All of the staff, who also work as lunchtime supervisors, will be familiar to your child. They make a huge effort to make sure that each child feels comfortable and settled, having fun and an opportunity to relax at the end of a busy day.

 

After-school childcare sessions must be booked by midday on Thursday of the previous week via ParentPay. It is solely a parent’s/carer’s responsibly to book their child into after-school childcare before the set deadline. Sessions are paid for at the time of booking. Please contact Mrs Topping in the school office if you want your child's place to be automatically booked each week.

 

Office staff will consult the ParentPay system when drawing up registers for the coming week after the deadline.

 

No refunds will be given for unused sessions.

 

We appreciate that sometimes you may have an emergency and may need to book childcare for the same day. However for safeguarding reasons we will not accept any same day bookings after 1pm. Please do not put our lovely office staff in the difficult position of having to say no.
