At St Thomas’, we offer both before and after school wraparound care for both our Foundation Stage and KS1/KS2 children. Our ‘Breakfast Club’ runs Monday to Friday from 7.45am to the start of the school day (8.45am) and our ‘After School’ provision runs Monday to Friday, from the end of the school day until 5.30pm.
Both clubs for the Early Years children will run separately to the rest of the school which means children receive a provision of care which is consistent, inclusive and age appropriate.
St Thomas' 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 7.45 - 8.45am 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 8:45am 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:
- A choice of at least 3 different cereals.
- Toast with a selection of spreads (e.g. Jams, Marmite and marmalade)
- Fruit yoghurt
- Fruit juice, milk (soya available on request) and water.
- A selection of fresh fruit.
The cost of the club is £1.50 per day, per child. The cost does not change depending on the time you arrive or if you choose not to have breakfast with us.
Parents also have the flexibility to arrive on the day without booking however, we can not guarantee a place should we be full.
After School Club
Our After School Club runs from 3.15pm until 5.30pm every term time day. Children are offered a vast range of activities to enjoy and extend their learning experiences, including cookery, arts and crafts, ICT, sports, games and role play.
Children enjoy a snack which they often help to prepare. The planning of activities and snacks is led by the children to very much reflect their interests and tastes.
The After School Club is available to all our children from Foundation Stage to Year 6.
An admission form must be completed prior to your child attending the club.
Admission forms may be downloaded here and are also available from the school office.
Applications can also be made through ParentPay.
