Garlinge Primary School and Nursery has been running a Breakfast Club successfully for five years and we welcome children 5 days per week during term time. The club is run by a team of experienced teaching assistants commencing at 08:00 in the Key Stage 1 hall. Children are expected to arrive by no later than 08:15.
We insist school safeguarding procedures are followed and children are not left unescorted in the KS1 playground or car park. Parents and carers are expected to deliver their child to the KS1 hall into the care of a Breakfast Club staff member. Parents and carers need to be aware that there are no road crossing patrol staff members at this time so you will need to take extra care when crossing roads.
As a healthy school the children are offered a wide range from our varied menu. Examples of what we have to offer are listed below:
We provide named toothbrushes together with toothpaste for each child.
After breakfast has been eaten, children will have the opportunity to play with board games and/or other quiet toys that will help them to prepare for the start of the day ahead. All children are expected to behave in a quiet and respectful manner in the same way as they would in class.
The school subsidises breakfast club and charge £1.50 per day for each member. All payments need to be handed to a breakfast club member in an envelope clearly marked with "breakfast club", your child's name, class and amount. Cheques need to be made payable to "Garlinge Primary School and Nursery". If your child is absent from Breakfast Club for any reason you will still be expected to pay for the place.
Places are limited, therefore early booking is recommended. If you would like to enquire about a place for your child please email Mrs P Askew , the Club Co-ordinator, or telephone the school office between the hours of 12:30 and 16:30 on 01843 221877 (Option 3).
