About our Breakfast Club

Miss Pountain is the main supervisor for our provision.

Our Before School Club is run under the umbrella of the Governing Body and follows the policies and procedures of the school. The Club is open during term time Monday – Friday from 7.45am until the start of the school day when the children are escorted to join their class. The ratio of staff will always be a minimum of 1:12. Children can engage in activities of their choice, with a mixture of adult and child led activities. Children are listened to and valued within the Club, which enables them to enjoy the session, feel safe and secure. We work in partnership with parents, we have a suggestion box for any comments. Children will be involved in group planning sessions where they are able to put forward their suggestions and interests for the Activity Plan.

Our Breakfast Club runs from 7.45am to the start of the school day during term time.
