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

Due to COVID-19, we had had to change our provision in Breakfast Club from September 2020 in order to ensure all staff and pupils are kept safe.  

 

The daily cost of our Breakfast Club will continue to be 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. 

 

Breakfast Club re-opened on Monday 28th September at 8am.  Pupils are only be able to enter between 8am and 8.10am.   Booking is essential - please refer to the video in the Video Resource Centre for a guide about how to do this using sQuid.   Please note, Breakfast Club is no longer be a drop-in facility. 

 

Breakfast Club Terms and Conditions

  2. There will be a choice of toast or cereal each day, together with apple or orange juice.

  6. Sessions cannot be booked after 8am on the day before the day you wish to book, for example if you wish to book a session for the Friday, you would need to book it before 8am on the Thursday.
  7. If your child fails to attend a pre-booked session, it will only be refunded to your Trips and Offers purse in sQuid if it is due to non-attendance through illness.
  8. While queuing outside, please respect social distancing so that pupils in different year groups don’t mix
  9. Children who arrive at breakfast club and have not been pre-booked via sQuid, will be turned away.
