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

We offer a very popular Breakfast Club for all pupils from Reception up to Year 6.  This is staffed by our Pupil Support Assistant, Naz Hussain and a number of Teaching Assistants: Jane Cooper, Julie Phillips, Margaret Gray, Julie Brereton and Michelle Bark. 

 

The daily cost of our Breakfast Club has been £1.25 since May 2015. As you will be aware, Sheffield schools are facing an uncertain future financially, and we are working hard to ensure that any budget cuts have as little impact on your child’s education as possible. To help support the increasing costs of running our Breakfast Club, and to bring the cost of our Breakfast Club in line with other schools in the city, the daily cost of our Breakfast Club will increase to £2.00 with effect from Wednesday 4th September. Any profits made from this price increase will be used to further improve provision across the whole of school. We hope you will agree that this still represents excellent value for money, and will continue to support us. If you are in receipt of income-related Free School Meals or you volunteer at our Drop-Off, your child will continue 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 runs from 8am - 8.35am every day on a drop-in basis; you don't have to make a booking. Pupils are able to have breakfast, which includes a choice of fruit juice, toast, fruit toast, cereals, crumpets, beans and even a bacon buttie on Tuesdays.   There are also a range of activities on offer, such as reading, fussball, pool, building Lego or colouring. 

 

At the end of the session, pupils in Reception and Y1 are escorted by a member of staff to their classrooms.  Pupils in Years 2 to 6 make their way to their own classrooms independently.

 

Parents and carers are always welcome to join their children in Breakfast Club each day.
