Breakfast and After School Clubs
After School Club and Breakfast Club
We operate a Breakfast Club from 7.45 am to 8.45 am and an After School Club from the end of the school day until 6 p.m. subject to availability of places.
The clubs are generally held in the school dining hall offering lots of space for children to move around. Both clubs follow all the school policies including Safeguarding, Health and Safety, Welfare, Asthma and Behaviour. All of our policies can be viewed here or paper copies are available from the school office.
The club offers a range of activities. We have many board games, books, construction sets, toys for them to play with.
The cost of Breakfast Club is currently £5.75 per child, per day
The cost of After School Club is currently £11.50 per child, per day
Paying for our Breakfast and After School Club
Parents/Carers will be required to book and pay 7 days in advance for Breakfast Club sessions via ParentPay. Full login and user details will be issued once the registration forms have been completed, together with booking / payment instructions.
Parents must be aware that they are paying for a place and therefore, no concessions will be made for absences.
Our Mission Statement
We are committed to providing a high quality, creative and fun before and after school childcare where each child is valued and encouraged to fulfil their potential in a safe, caring environment.
Aims and Objectives
Our Breakfast Club and Our After School Club provide early morning and after school. They are a great opportunity for educational and social activities in a happy atmosphere. A place where children will be safe, well cared for and happy to attend.
We want all children to enjoy their time at Breakfast Club and After School Club and work hard to ensure that they feel happy and secure in a very caring and stimulating environment.
All members of staff, at Breakfast Club, have current DBS checks and at least one staff member has a current first aid certificate and food hygiene training. All staff working at the club have been carefully chosen for their commitment, enthusiasm and high ability to provide a stimulating, fun-packed, warm and caring environment. All members of staff in our Breakfast Club and our After School Club are employed directly by the school.
Before your child starts at one of our clubs
Before a child is admitted to Breakfast Club or After School Club, a registration form must be signed, completed and returned to the school office. The child must be currently attending full time at St. Jérôme Church of England Primary School from Reception – Year 6. The registration form is available from the school office.
The parent / carer must inform Breakfast Club staff of any specific dietary requirements, food preferences or allergies.
Our Breakfast Club
A parent / carer signs each child into Breakfast Club or during the pandemic a member of staff will sign your child in.
Healthy, nutritious food is served for breakfast. Breakfast Club provides a varied menu of cereal with toast and jam, milk and fresh fruit juices. Eating breakfast has shown to improve children’s problem-solving abilities, memory and concentration. Attendance at Breakfast Club also helps children to start the school day punctually and calm and ready for learning.
We offer children a variety of activities that they may wish to participate in before school. We have many board games, books, construction sets, toys for them to play with.
Our After School Club
The club operates from the end of the school day until 6.00 pm every school day. Children can be collected any time up until 6.00 pm. On the last day of terms do check carefully as After School Club may close early on those days. There is no After School Club on the last day of Michaelmas Term when the school breaks up for Christmas.
A register will be taken at the beginning of the session and parent(s) / carer(s) will be required to sign child(ren) out when they are collected. Children will be provided with a drink and snack during the session.
There are also lots of board games, books, construction sets, toys for them to play with, and a DVD is available together with the opportunity to continue learning in French and English.
In the summer months the children can use the playground and there are a variety of toys and equipment for outside play.
Collecting your child from our After School Club
We want accept that sometimes things go wrong and you get stuck at the office or in traffic.
However we want our staff to be able to enjoy their evenings and therefore our After School Club closes promptly at 6:00pm.
It is worth making a plan, in advance, of who can collect your child if you can not reach the school before 6:00pm. Do make sure that the school knows this person has your authority to collect your child.
