NEW!! – Early Years Breakfast Club Trial!
We are delighted to announce that from Tuesday 31st October, we will be trialling offering additional places for children in our Nursery and Reception class to attend our existing daily Breakfast club, “Toasties”.
In order to adhere to legal staffing ratios, a member of Level 3 and Paediatric First Aid trained staff will be allocated to supervise and engage with the children who attend from the Foundation Stage.
We sincerely hope this addition to our current provision will support parents, especially those with work commitments, however should the Early Years spaces not be used, we may have to withdraw this offer following the half term in February 2018. Plenty of advance notice will be given if this is unfortunately the case.
Effective from 18th April 2017 “Toasties”, our Breakfast Club will run from 7.40 am until the start of school at 8.50 a.m. every morning during term time (an increase of 10 minutes per day). Available to children attending our School, Breakfast Club supports parents and carers, in particular working parents, to have access to early morning childcare which is good value for money.
Breakfast Club will not be available on non-pupil days or during school holidays.
Only children who have registered for Breakfast Club will be able to attend:- (the Registration Form must be completed as the information contained is essential).
A wide range of activities and games are on offer and children are provided with cereals, fruit juice, milk, and toast with a variety of toppings for breakfast.
The cost per session is £3.00 and sessions will need to be booked and paid for in advance to ensure staffing is planned effectively. All sessions will need to be booked and paid for by the preceding Thursday of each week. Cheques should be made payable to Essex County Council. Unfortunately, non-attendance of sessions cannot be refunded as staffing levels would have been pre-determined.
All Staff are subject to CRB checks in line with school policy on safeguarding children.
We will expect children to behave just as well at Breakfast Club as they do in school – the same “rules” apply.
On a final note, children must be taken to the school hall by the adult bringing them and handed over to the member of staff on duty. This is to ensure that they are marked in the attendance register. If there were to be a problem and you thought your child was at Breakfast Club and they were not, this would not be highlighted until 9.00 a.m. when the class registers are taken and any absences investigated, so you will appreciate how important the handover is.
Also a reminder that parents dropping off their child should not use the staff car park, but use the road to park in a walk their child along the path.
Thank you for your co-operation in keeping all the children safe.
