Breakfast and After School Club

At Bradley Barton Primary School we offer a Breakfast club and an After School Club. The Club is located next door to the Outdoor classroom and is accessed through the rear car park. We aim to enhance the children's experiences in school in a positive, collaborative environment.

 

Breakfast Club

 

Breakfast club runs from 7:30 - 8:40 am. Upon arrival, for safety reasons, it is important that parents/carers sign their child(ren) in. During Breakfast Club, the children can enjoy a delicious breakfast of their choice: cereals, toast, fruit, milk and fruit juices. We aim to offer a healthy start to their day. After breakfast, the children can participate in a free play activity of their choice. They are then ready for the day ahead and make their way to the classrooms for an 8:40am start.

 

After School Club

 

After School Club hours are based around the needs of parents/carers. We provide two options- 3.15pm - 5pm or 3.15pm - 6pm. At the end of the school day for EYFS and KS1, the children are collected from their classrooms by a member of staff and are escorted to the After School Club room. KS2 children make their way over independently. Upon arrival, the children are signed in and sit down together to have a snack(s) of their choice: sandwiches, toast, fruit, toasties and other varieties of snacks. After snack time, they participate in a range of activities with their peers. Children are then collected and signed out by their parents/carers at the end of their school day.

 

Staff

 

We are very fortunate that our members of staff in the clubs also work alongside the children in the school day. This provides the children with familiar faces and positive relationships. Members of staff working in the clubs are: Mr Burford (KS2 Cover supervisor/Breakfast and After School Club Manager), Mrs Vicary (Meal time assistant), Mrs Walker (Meal times assistant), Mr Radford (Inclusion Leader), Miss Hedge (KS2 LSA) and Miss Rendel (KS1 LSA).

Payment

 

Both breakfast and after school club sessions must be booked and paid for in advance. This requirement is essential. Sessions must be booked through the school gateway system 48 hours in advance and paid at the time of booking. In order to cancel a session, parents/carers must contact the school office with 24 hours’ notice. If a child is absent from school due to illness, their session will be cancelled.

 

 

School Gateway

Following feedback from parents we have changed the way breakfast and after school club sessions are booked. All sessions are to be booked via the School Gateway online system/App.

You are responsible for making any cancellations through contacting the school office 24 hours beforehand. If we get less than 24 hours’ notice the parent/carer will still be charged for the session. If your child is booked into breakfast and/or afterschool and is absent from school due to illness the session will be cancelled.

 

How do I make a booking?

  1. You will need to, you haven’t done so already, log into www.schoolgateway.com or download the app to your tablet/smartphone.
  2. Once you have registered, log in to the School Gateway and book the sessions needed.        

 

 

Any sessions not used due to illness or cancellation (more than 24hrs prior) will be credited and can be used towards a future booking. The system is designed to show you at any point what the balance is on your account.

 

     3. If the session you require is showing full please call the office, we will endeavour to accommodate wherever possible, but this cannot be guaranteed. To avoid disappointment please book your sessions as far in advance as you can.

     4. If you currently use child care vouchers to make your breakfast/after school club payments, we will enter these payments manually once the funds have reached our account. Please allow time for your account to update.

 

Any last minute bookings made through the school office will have to be paid by cash or cheque when collecting/dropping your child off at the session booked.

 

 

If you have any questions/queries or would like your child to access either of the clubs, please contact Reception who will be more than happy to help you.
