The school operates a ‘Wide Awake Club’ child minding service from 7.55 – 8.20 a.m. Monday to Friday for a cost of £1 per pupil per day. A booking form must be completed and handed in on a Monday morning with the requirements for the week together with the payment. The Wide Awake Club receives no funding and therefore has to be self-sufficient. Children who attend the ‘Wide Awake Club’ then stay for the free LA breakfast club.
The school has been allocated a specific amount of money ring-fenced for a half hour Free Breakfast Club. This amount has been based on pupil numbers from the 2013/14 academic year and will not increase. The delegated school budget cannot be used to meet any shortfall in costs (i.e. staffing) of the Free Breakfast Club due to an increase in pupil numbers.
May I remind you that the Free Breakfast Club is to provide pupils with a meal to start the day; it is not a childcare facility. Pupils who attend are expected to eat a breakfast at the facility.
