Pippins Breakfast Club and Orchard After School Club
We are excited to announce the new names for our provision which will be Pippins Breakfast Club and Orchard After School Club. Our aim is to make the clubs sustainable in the longer term and we plan to trial a new pricing structure to attract families whose children may wish to attend an activities based club until 4.30pm. We are pleased to be able to offer the following rates:
Pippins Breakfast Club from 7.30am - £6
Pippins Breakfast Club from 8.00am - £4
Orchard After School Club collection between from 3.15pm to 4.30pm - £5
Orchard After School Club collection between from 4.31pm to 5.30pm - £9
Food is provided at both clubs – cereals and toast at Pippins and a light snack at Orchard club. We are also changing the way you can book on to the sessions. We understand that making a booking and paying 48 hours in advance may not be convenient for our busy families. From now on, to book a place at Out of School Club (Pippins or Orchard), parents can:
- telephone school to book a place
- email school to book a place
- make regular bookings by completing the half-termly booking sheets (attached here)
We also understand that sometimes, you may need to use the childcare service with minimal notice so we are pleased to accept 'drop in' bookings for Pippins Breakfast Club, allowing you to drop your children off without having pre-booked a slot. In the same way, we are happy to accept bookings for Orchard After School Club up until 12 noon each day. Bookings and sessions taken will be added to ParentPay by the Friday of each week so that parents can pay over the weekend.
From this week, Miss Northway will only be running the Pippins Breakfast Club which is open from 7.30am each morning. This will now be held in the main school building and can be accessed by the door at the main school entrance. We are pleased to welcome, in the short term, Mrs Dunnigan and Mr Moffat to our school, who will be leading the Orchard After School Club - Mrs Dunnigan on a Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and Mr Moffat on a Tuesday and Friday. We plan to re-advertise for a permanent leader for the Orchard After School Club, should there be sufficient demand to make the club viable longer term.
We look forward to receiving any future bookings for this service. Once you register a booking, you will receive some paperwork regarding the service to complete and return to school.
