Dear Parents and Carers,
As you know the school currently runs a breakfast club from 8.00am until school start time. For a while now we have been looking at ways to create a child care offer that would help more families from the school site.
We have been in discussions with Energy Kidz for some time about them coming in as specialists to run our breakfast club and start up an after school club from our site.
It has recently been decided that the school will retain the breakfast club and also set up an After School Club. Both will be managed by school staff and all our own safeguarding and behaviour policies would apply throughout.
There will need to be an increase to the price of breakfast club. For a number of years the pricing has not been changed to reflect the increasing costs of staffing and resources etc. It is likely that the price of breakfast club will be increased so the school is no longer running it at a loss. We hope that families realise this is the only realistic way of continuation and continue to benefit from this service.
A large amount of work will be put in over the next two weeks to plan for opening the after school club. We are currently working hard on pricing, booking systems, recruitment and policies with a view to opening on 4th November.
Please bear with us while we do everything we can to make wrap around childcare a success.
I will write again once we have made a decision about pricing for both and how you can book and pay for sessions.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
Mrs A Halley
