Wrap Around Care
Early Birds is our breakfast club that is open to all children from Nursery through to Year 6. The sessions start at 7:30am until 8:45 and costs £2 per pupil. Early birds offers a happy, safe and welcoming environment to start your child’s school day in the best way possible. It is led by experienced school staff, who will be familiar to the children as they work in school across the day.
There are healthy choices of breakfast cereal and toast as well as yoghurts and fruit. Children can also choose a range of hot and cold drinks. The club is set up to encourage the children to eat a healthy breakfast, which gives them a great start to their day.
After they have eaten children go to the games table’s where they can play a range of games or join in with art and craft type activities. As well as this the children can also take part in a range of physical activities outside in the playground. Adults are also on hand to help with homework, reading and spellings.
If you are interested in using Early Birds, then you need to complete the registration from that is available form the office. Once this is completed you can book and pay for the sessions that you require via our Arbor system.
All sessions must be pre-booked and paid in advance. If the option to book the required day isn't available, then this it means the session is full. If this is the case, please do not just send your child into school as we will not have the space for them.
Early Bird Rules:
1. All children will be brought to the club by an adult from 7.30 am. Please be aware there is no crossing patrol at this time. It is your responsibility to ensure your child crosses the road safely.
2. All children have the chance to carry out homework or play games or take part in art and craft activities.
3. All children will follow the school’s golden rules of Safe, Engaged and Respectful. These are key to ensure that everyone who attends the club has fun whilst eating a healthy breakfast.
