John Betts Primary School Breakfast Club aims to provide pupils of all ages with a safe and fun place to start their school day. Breakfast Club is open to all pupils and we will do our best to accommodate the needs of your child. If your child has special needs/disabilities and requires extra support, please discuss this with the Breakfast Club staff.
The club will provide a quiet space (for reading, etc.) and a free play area, as well as more structured activities. Each morning a nutritious breakfast will be provided and the children will be encouraged to help themselves, sit down, talk together and then clear up their dishes. At the end of the session, we hope that the children will be fed, happy and ready to learn.
The club will run from 8.00 - 8.55am every weekday during term time (excluding Inset days). Your child(ren) can be dropped off at any time between these times via the front door on the right hand side. At 8:55am the children will be escorted to the playground to line up for the start of the day.
We provide a healthy breakfast and we encourage all children to eat and drink something.
Everyday we offer:
Occasionally, the menu is supplemented with seasonal treats: different bakery goods; porridge; yoghurts; or foods from around the world to reflect the curriculum in school. Where possible, any special diets will be catered for.
We serve breakfast until 8.30am. If a child arrives after 8:30am, they will be given a cereal bar and a glass of juice or water.
The cost of the club is £4.00 per day, per child. Subsidised places may be available for children in receipt of Pupil Premium. The cost does not change depending on the time you arrive or if you choose not to have breakfast with us.
Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis to those that hand in their booking form and payment first. Please book a place with the office.
Parents of children attending the club on a regular basis must submit their booking form (as well as termly payment) in the last week of the preceding term or the first week of the new term.
Parents also have the flexibility to book ad-hoc sessions, where places are available, however the Breakfast Club requires a minimum of 24 hours notice.
Payment is required at the time of booking. We accept cash or cheques. Please pay the correct amount and make cheques payable to John Betts School. We reserve the right to refuse further bookings if your fees are not paid.
