Breakfast club

If you need help with childcare before school, the governors run a breakfast club for our pupils. Breakfast club runs from Monday to Friday, from 7.45 to 8.45, the start of the school day. The club is run by Miss Roper and other staff who work in the school and who already know the children.

The cost of this club is £4.50 per day, and this must be paid in advance, via ‘Parentpay’ (the link to this is on the home page, under Parentpay) Fees can be paid weekly or monthly. Employer childcare vouchers can be used against these payments.

During the session, the children are offered toast, pancakes, crumpets, or cereal and fruit and juice.

Children have access to lots of different toys, puzzles, building equipment and colouring.

After school care club

Here at St Peter’s we know that parents often need childcare in the hours following the school day. We offer an after school club than runs from 3.15pm until 5.15pm and costs £7.50 per session.

It takes place in the school hall and the children are given time to play, do homework if they choose to, or simply relax after their busy day.

During the session, the children are offered a light tea of toast with honey, cheese spread or jam, breakfast cereals with milk, or fruit. Occasionally other snacks are on offer and children’s suggestions are always taken into account. We do encourage them to make healthy choices and they are also involved in choosing and preparing their own snacks and drinks.

The children also have supervised access to the toilets and to the playground/field, with a range of play equipment, on days when the weather is better. Children are offered a range of activities during the sessions – many of which they suggest themselves. These include crafts, construction, ICT activities, art activities and role play.

Depending on the number of children present, the club is run by qualified adults who are CRB checked. Many of these adults are Learning Support Assistants who work in school, and are therefore very familiar to the children.

The after school club MUST be paid for in advance. Fees can be paid weekly or monthly. Once your child is registered with the club, payment must also be made whether or not your child attends, in order to retain their place. Employer childcare vouchers can be used against these payments.
