Breakfast and After-School Clubs

We aim to ensure that every child has the opportunity to fulfil their potential and through extended services, our pupils are able to access a variety of experiences both before school, during the school day and after hours.

 

Rise and Shine Breakfast Club

 

The daily cost of our Breakfast Club is in line with other schools in the city, at £2.00 per day.  Any profits are used to further improve provision across the whole of school.  If you are in receipt of income-related Free School Meals or you volunteer at our Drop-Off (when it re-opens), your child is able to attend Breakfast Club free of charge. If you think you may be entitled to income-related Free School Meals, please speak to a member of the office team.  All payments for Breakfast Club are made through sQuid. 

 

We will re-open the Breakfast Club on Monday 13th September 2021.  Pupils will be able to enter between 8am and 8.15am.  Booking is essential - please refer to the video in the Video Resource Centre for a guide about how to do this using sQuid.

As well as the usual activities, such as basketball, skipping and football in the playground, we also offer a range of clubs, run by our staff during lunchtime, which have included activities such as gardening and chess.

Sheffield Children’s University 

  • Sheffield Children’s University (CU) was established in 2008 and now has over 44,000 members who have collectively taken part in around 3 million hours of high quality learning outside of normal school hours! They work with over 70 schools from across the city and over 200 Learning Destinations (approved activity providers). Sheffield CU is part of Sheffield City Council. 
  • We know taking part in CU makes a difference in Sheffield - each year our data tells us that children/young people who participate make more progress in their learning at school, and are much more likely to do better than they are expected to in their SATs and GCSEs. We also know its great for growing confidence , motivation, self-esteem, and the most important thing about participating in CU? HAVING FUN
  • Any child or young person attending a Sheffield school can join Sheffield CU.

 

We currently subscribe to this service and our pupils can earn CU credits by taking part in lunchtime activities or after-school clubs. 

 

All children can earn CU credits by taking part in activities at a validated Learning Destination by colleciting credits in a Passport to Learning (available from Sheffield libraries or our school for £3.50).

 

Awards and ceremonies

Children can earn up to 30 different award certificates and badges from Sheffield Children’s University . These range from 30 hours to 1000 hours.  There are Gold, Silver and Bronze awards for achieving credit levels.

Bronze and Silver awards are awarded in school but Gold Award winners are invited to a ceremony (November, March and July).  Every time a child reaches a Gold Level (every 100 hours) , they will receive an invite to a Gold award ceremony.
