Here at St Peter’s we know that parents often need childcare in the hours before and following on from the school day. We offer a breakfast club which costs £4.50 which runs from 7.45am and after school club than runs until 5.15pm and costs £7.50 per session.
The clubs 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, with a range of play equipment. On days when the weather is better, the children may play outside or on the school field. Children are offered a range of activities during the sessions – many of which they suggest themselves.
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 clubs can be paid for in advance. Fees can be paid weekly or monthly. Employer childcare vouchers can be used against these payments.
