Breakfast and After School Club

The following information is to provide you with details about the club and the facilities on offer to you and your child. You may download the information here. If you require further information or would like to visit, meet the team and see our wonderful facilities, please don't hesitate to get in touch. Visits are warmly welcomed. An application form can be downloaded here. In accordance with the School's Out Admissions Policy, a waiting list is maintained where necessary.

Aims and Ethos

Our purpose built, self contained area offers a safe and secure environment in which children can relax, enjoy breakfast or a sandwich tea, choose from an array of activities, play with friends, or do homework.

Our fully inclusive, caring and friendly ethos provides an ideal setting in which all children can learn through play whilst under the supervision of our qualified team of staff, several of whom work in school too.

We have a fantastic range of play equipment, including a secure outside play environment complete with an artificially grassed deck area and its own garden, so there’s plenty to keep the children happily occupied come rain or shine. Ultimately, our aim is to ensure that each and every child has fun!

A diverse programme of activities including arts and crafts, cooking, physical activity (both indoor and outdoor), games, free play and visiting specialists, is designed to introduce new skills, expand children’s horizons, strengthen self-development and improve punctuality and attendance at school. Children are encouraged to participate in the planning and decision making process, for example choosing activities, menus and the purchase of new resources etc.

In accordance with the school’s healthy eating ethos, a nutritious breakfast and afternoon tea is served in a relaxed, fully supervised environment, designed to bring a touch of "home" to school.

We are confident the seamless transition between school life and extended school care, easily accessible location, convenient opening times and competitive fees, meet the needs of our parents and carers.


All staff are DBS checked and suitably qualified for the role in which they work. The school is committed to the continued professional and personal development of all staff and offers a wealth of training opportunities. All appointments are made in line with KCC safer recruitment procedures and the ratios of staff to children are in line with Government recommendations.

Session Times and Fees

Our breakfast club runs from 7.45am until 8.45am on school days. From 1st September 2018 until 31st July 2019 the fee will be £3.10 per session. This includes a light breakfast.

The after school club runs from 3.15pm until 5.55pm on school days. From 1st September 2018 until 31st July 2019 the fee will be £9.20 per session. This includes a sandwich tea or alternative light snack.

Each child is issued with a unique account, against which all pre-booked sessions, and payment of fees are recorded. Computer generated statements are provided to parents/carers on a monthly basis, one week prior to the end of each month, and all fees must be paid monthly in advance i.e. pre-booked sessions for October must be paid by 30th September. Any additional sessions booked after the statement has been generated will be reflected the following month, and charged along with the next month’s fees. Failure to make payment by the due date could result in the withdrawal of your child’s place at the club.

We ask that fees are paid on-line, via the School Gateway, a safe and secure method of payment authenticated with Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode. Guidance on setting up an account will be provided upon allocation of a place at the club. Alternatively, it is available to download here.

Please note that all pre-booked sessions will be charged at the full rate, even if your child does not attend. Should your child not be able to attend a pre-booked session please inform the manager prior to the session. Should your child be absent without prior notification, for a period in excess of two school weeks the school reserves the right to withdraw the offer of a place. 

One month’s written notice or one month’s fees in lieu of notice, are required should you wish to relinquish your child’s place at the club. Fees are reviewed and agreed annually by the Governing Body and any changes implemented on 1st April.

In order to compliment the ethos of the school, School's Out! has adopted a number of school policies, which along with it's own, aim to provide a safe and secure environment, enjoyed by all.
