An introduction from senior club manager Mrs Rachel Brown:
Please read the policy document for specific information including procedures. As this is a new venture we would welcome parent and child feedback so we can make this provision as good as we can.
At Mosspits we ‘nuture through respect, inspire through creativity and succeed beyond expectations,’ and the school is proud to be able to offer a breakfast and after school club, within a safe and secure environment, offering a range of activities based on the children’s interests.
This wrap-around care provision is for the current children of Mosspits Lane’s school. It is at present term time only. We will ascertain whether we can provide holiday care at a later date.
The clubs will be child centred, purposeful, playful and fun.
The school also offers a range of extra-curricular activity clubs which are organised by current staff members or external providers, which follow on from the end of the school day. (It should be noted that many of the external clubs will charge an additional fee.) You can find out about these clubs when they are released at the start of each term.
Our breakfast club runs from 7:45am to 8.55am, Monday to Friday. The club will be fully supervised, providing a safe and fun start to the day which includes indoor activities, games and film. There will be a choice of breakfast cereals, toast, pancakes, muffins, crumpets and yoghurts for your child/children to enjoy plus a drink each day.
After school club:
Our after school club runs from 3.15pm to 6pm, Monday to Friday. Once registered, the children will be encouraged to have fun through play-based activities and are fully supervised at all times. Those children who are attending any extra-curricular activities go independently to their chosen clubs and are collected by after school staff at the end of the extra-curricular club session.
The after school club is lucky enough to be able to take full advantage of the whole school environment, including the playground and grassed area. The children are free to choose from a selection of both planned and unplanned activities which enhances their learning. Resources will be readily available, which could include arts and crafts, colouring and drawing, board games, construction, role play, physical play and quiet areas for reading etc. Tablets will occasionally be available for educational games. There will also be themed days / weeks based on Christmas, Easter and the celebrations of other cultures and traditions, where the children can get all creative. During the winter months there will be an option of a film.
At Mosspits Lane we recognise the importance of healthy eating. The children will sit down to a healthy snack at 4:30pm. As our school promotes independence, we will encourage the children to clear away afterwards. The club will include a variety of snacks and there will also be a seasonal menu.
Payment and booking:
The payment system, via our online system (parent pay) is now live.
We are very excited to be starting this new venture at the school!
Rachel Brown (Breakfast and After School Club Manager)
