Breakfast Club and After School Club
We are delighted to be able to offer the families of St. Joseph’s School their very own Breakfast and After School club.
Breakfast Club is available from 7.45 am to the start of school every day during term time. It is overseen by the Headteacher and the day to day management is carried out by Marie Cowdrey. She is a former parent of the school and was previously employed as a lunchtime assistant so is very familiar with the school, the children and the management and organisation of the provision.
Marie is assisted at the Club by Mrs Jeannette Lomas, who is also a catering assistant and cleaner at the school.
At Breakfast Club we are keen to support the school’s healthy eating policy. We will offer a range of cereals, dried and fresh fruit and toast each day. Breakfast is served up until 8.30am.
We are very keen to involve the children in this including designing menus and developing their awareness of basic food hygiene. Each day children will be encouraged to take some responsibility for making breakfast a success.
Quiet activities are available and it is hoped that there will be some themed activities.. for our French speakers perhaps a week of breakfast French style….
All sessions are held in the school hall.
The cost per session per child is £3.50.
If you wish to make use of this facility please complete the parent agreement (attached to the policy in the downloads section below) and return as soon as possible. Bookings must be made via ParentPay and further information can be found in the documents below.
If you have any questions then please contact the School Office.
After School Club
Our After School Club runs every school day from 3.15pm for Nursery children and 3.30pm for Reception - yr 6. The sessions can be booked either until 4.30pm (‘early’ session) or until 5.45pm (‘late’ session). The club does not run a late session on a Friday and can only be booked until 4.30pm.
After School Club is run from the Foundation Stage base and is led by Mrs Claire Rush. Mrs Rush is one of the school teaching assistants and has a lot of experience in caring for children. Mrs Rush is assisted by Miss Emily White who is also a teaching assistant at the school. Miss Lucienne Kidd, who is a teaching assistant at another local school, works in After School Club on a Thursday. Mr Chris Anning will also be assisting Mrs Rush one evening per week - Chris has recently joined our school as a supply teaching assistant.
During each session, the children will have a snack and then the focus is on fun activities. Although the children are still required to behave well, the idea is not that the session is an extension of school but rather a time to relax, chat and play after a long day at school.
The cost of the after school club sessions are £6.00 until 4.30pm and £9.00 until 5.45pm (late session not available on Fridays).
Booking for this club is also made through ParentPay, but if using the club for the first time please complete the parent agreement attached to the Policy (see below).
If you have any questions please contact the school office.
Please find below further information about Breakfast Club and After School Club, and the clubs policy document (incorporating the parent agreement). (Please note these are to shortly be updated with the revised cost (as at June 2021) of £3.50 per child for Breakfast Club)
