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.
Breakfast Club is extremely popular and we have just taken on another member of staff to ensure we can meet all the children's needs. Booking in advance is advisable to secure a place. The two staff working with Marie are Helen Fisher and Chris King, who are both teaching assistants in the school.
Priority will be given to parents requiring a regular place with occasional places being subject to availability.
At Breakfast Club we are keen to support the schools healthy eating policy. We will offer a range of cereals, dried and fresh fruit and toast each day.
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 £3.00. For two children the cost will be £2.50 each. For three or more children the cost will be £2.00 each.
If you wish to make use of this facility please complete the registration form (in the downloads section) and return as soon as possible.
If you have any questions then please contact Marie or 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 or until 5.45pm (only until 4.30 pm on a Friday).
After School Club is run from the Foundation Stage base and it led by Mrs Rush. Mrs Rush is one of the school teaching assistants and has a lot of experience in caring for children. Mrs Kidd, also a teaching assistant works in After School Club with the children.
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.
If you have any questions please contact either Mrs Rush or the school office.
