Before and After School Care Clubs

Breakfast Club and TOPS Booking Information September 2020

Before School Breakfast Club

Breakfast Buddies was set up to help those parents who need to bring their children to school earlier in the morning thus allowing them to meet their work commitments. Children may also attend Breakfast Buddies for other reasons such as if it will help to improve punctuality or attendance or if they need extra time in school to prepare for their day. It has been proven to be a successful club and is becoming more and more popular with parents.

  • Timings 7.45am to 8.50
  • Open to all children 
  • Pre-booking is not essential although it is preferred
  • Parents can sign their children in at any time and on any day

Breakfast Buddies runs from 7:45am each morning to support parents who need to bring their children to school earlier.

TOPS After School Child Care Provision

 

We hope that by providing an after school in school we will be supporting parents and pupils alike. Parents will be able to access the club in the knowledge that their children will have top quality childcare at the end of the school day for all parents who require wrap-around care up to 6pm each day.

The club can be accessed on either a regular basis or on occasional days.

  • Children are collected from class and can attend T.O.P.S Club until 6pm
  • Pre-booking is essential through the School Gateway online booking system
  • Parents can sign their children up for a regular or one-off slot
  • Children are provided with a healthy snack which they often help to prepare themselves
  • There is a regular staffing team and all members of staff are employed by school so have a good working knowledge of the children attending the club
  • Activities organised including sports, creative crafts, social development, multi-skills and ICT
  • If a child attends an afterschool curriculum club they are still able to access T.O.P.S once this club has finished

 

How will payment work?

The charge for each hour is £5. This can be broken down into half hour slots with a minimum charge of £5. e.g. 3.30pm to 4.30pm = £5, 3.30pm to 5pm =£7.50, 3.30pm to 6.00pm = £12.50. Fees will be invoiced on a half termly basis via post and an email will be sent to you too. Payments can be made online via the School Gateway. Alternatively, you can pay by Childcare Vouchers (please see the school office for further information). Cheque payments must be made to the office in a sealed named envelope marked TOPs Club. (cheques to be made payable to Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust).

 

For late pick- ups after 6.00pm, there will be an immediate charge of £5 and thereafter charged at a rate of £2 per 10 minutes. Parents should phone the club staff to let them know if they are running late, (07541347173).

 

The club can be accessed on either a regular basis or on occasional days. To ensure a guaranteed place we ask that you complete a booking form, which are available from the school office. Simply indicate on the sheet the session(s) you would like to book for your child for the next week, weeks or half term; then return the form to the school office. Currently we are able to accommodate parents booking in their child the same day as the club is needed. If we become busier, booking will become essential but we will give parents warning of this. On making your first booking with the club you will be asked to sign a Terms and Conditions Agreement. The club will also have a range of policies relevant to it and these are available either from the school website or a hard copy will be available for parents to look at in folder in the club.
