Early Birds Breakfast Club

‘Early Birds’ breakfast club is managed by the school office, and supported by other members of staff, from 8.00 to 8.40am each weekday for the complete duration of each term, at a cost of only £2.50 per session for each child.  Pupils are given breakfast first; such as cereals, toast, fresh fruit and fruit juice.  After breakfast, they take part in fun activities which enhance some of our curricular such as board games or literacy puzzles until 8.40am, when they join other pupils in the playground before registration in class. 

There is a maximum number of places for 35 children each day, so that we can ensure the club is adequately staffed.  For this reason, places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis to all pupils. The Booking form is available on Parentmail or in Hard copy from Breakfast Club or the school office.  Payments for Breakfast club should be made via ParentPay at the time of booking for the term you are booking, rather than the term we are in.   We ask that you also include contact details and information regarding food allergies or dietary restrictions on the booking form. If we are not able to give your child a place for the days you have requested we will let you know. If you don't hear from us you can assume your child has a place. If you need the services of Early Birds on an “ad-hoc” basis, do contact the office who will, if at all possible, accommodate your request for an extra place for your child.

Breakfast club is becoming increasingly popular and we are not always able to offer a place to parents who need to book at short notice. If you find you do not need a pre booked place on a particular day please let us know so we can offer the place to other parents. Refunds will only be made if another child can take the place.  We are endeavouring to keep charges for the club affordable for all parents.

We would like to ensure that all children have the opportunity to take part in the activities planned, and ask all parents to make sure that children arrive between 08.00 and 08.15am at the latest, so that we have time to serve breakfast before our planned activity.

As normal on a school day, we ask parents not to use the school car park as a greater volume of traffic entering and leaving the school site increases danger for the children.  Also, we do ask you to bear in mind your children’s safety when dropping off earlier in the morning – younger children should be brought into school by their parent or carer.

For any enquiries about Breakfast Club, please speak to the office staff.
