We are pleased to announce a new partnership with Kids' Corner, the childcare provider in the village, to be able to offer Breakfast Club from 7.45am and after-school care to 6.00pm, on our school site.
Breakfast Club is available from 7.45am each morning to provide a healthy breakfast and childcare to give our pupils the best start to the date. The Kids' Corner staff will also be running the after-school provision. Kids' Corner are fully Ofsted registered and compliant with all statutory obligations.
Children who attend Kids' Corner after-school care will now stay on the school site and parents can pick up their children from school at any point up to 6.00pm.
Children aged 3 to 11 can now attend both breakfast club and after-school club on our school site.
Why have we decided to change the provision?
It doesn't make financial sense for both school and Kids' Corner to run the same service and Kids' Corner, as a childcare provider, are better placed to take on both the beginning and end of day care. School staff running Breakfast Club are also teaching assistants and the new set up allows them to arrive in school and be fully prepared for the school day.
What benefits are there for my family?
- the children are in a familiar, safe setting with secure outdoor play areas
- they will have access to our books, play equipment and outdoor PE equipment
- the children won't have to walk the mile to or from Kids' Corner before or after school in all weathers
- families who need care at the start and end of the day can make bookings with just one provider
- the new staff will work in partnership with our school on one site
How do parents make a booking?
Families who can book in advance with a weekly or shift pattern will have a regular booking. Ad hoc bookings are very welcome for both breakfast and after school care and can be booked in on the night before or the same day by calling the dedicated mobile number 07544 858329 for our breakfast and after-school service.

How will parents pay for the service?
Parents will be invoiced directly by Kids' Corner and all payments will be made to them.
What food will be provided?
Breakfast Club - the children will receive cereals, milk or water, toast with healthy toppings.
After-school care - the children will receive a light tea such as toasted teacake, crumpet, sandwich or bagel with a yoghurt or fruit.
Have the staff had training?
The staff members both have experience working with children in various settings and one has the Level 5 qualification and will be the Wraparound Care Manager, dealing with all queries and bookings. Both have had safeguarding, paediatric first-aid, food hygiene and allergy training and will follow Kids' Corners and school's policies and risk assessments.
How much will the service be?
There will be a standard charge of £5 per child per session for Breakfast Club so parents have the flexibility to drop off any time after 7.45am to suit their morning routine. Kids' Corner will also look to provide care for families who need an earlier start time if there is enough demand. Steph, the Manager, has offered to honour a sibling discount for any families who currently use the service and this will be £4 for the second or third child.
The after-school club fees are competitively priced at £5 for any collection between 3.35pm and 4.30pm, £10 for any collection between 4.31pm and 5.30pm and then £15 for any collection between 5.31pm and 6.00pm. This equates in simple terms to £5 for the each of the first two hours and then £5 for the final late half hour. This is great value for childcare and food.
We are confident that we can work in partnership to offer our families quality childcare at the start and end of the day and look forward to welcoming the new providers to our team in school.
