WRAPAROUND CARE (Breakfast club and After School Care)
Ethelbert Road Primary School, breakfast and after school care currently provides wraparound care provision for all children attending the school (if spaces available and up to 30 children per session).
These operate daily providing continuous care within the school setting from 7.55am to 5.30pm.
Both clubs are becoming increasingly popular, so In order to ensure that we have sufficient staff we do need to know in advance which days the children will be attending. Regular places must be booked in advance and by Thursday 3pm, for the following week. Additional and ad-hoc sessions may be booked, dependent on availability. 24 hours’ notice will be required. This is so that we can ensure we have the appropriate adult to child ratios whilst giving our staff plenty of notice.
Breakfast Club is open from 7.55am every morning, with breakfast is served until 8.30am. After School Club is open from 3.15pm until 5.30pm Monday - Friday. Please note that staff are only present until 5:30pm, so if you are running late please could you telephone the After School Club (the main office closes at 4pm) or arrange for someone else to collect.
In addition to providing childcare the club offers an excellent opportunity for the children to engage and socialise with their peers. During the time spent at the club children can choose from a variety of planned activities including messy play, creative activities, free and structured play within the indoor and outdoor environment.
Some staff work in both breakfast club and after school care enabling continuity of care.
Meal times are an important time for children to socialise. Children at Breakfast Club are offered a choice of cereal, toast, fruit or yoghurt.
At after school care, the children are provided with fruit, drinks and a light snack.
All food conforms to school food guidelines. All allergies/intolerances should be notified to staff via the school office.
