Wrap-Around Care: Early Morning Club 8-8.45am
Early Morning Club provides childcare for working parents and runs each day from 8am until the start of the school day. Children take part in a range of activities, however it is important to note that this is not a 'breakfast club' and children need have have had breakfast prior to attending. The cost of each session is £3.75 per child.

Start of School day arrangements: 2020
To give the children more responsibility and time for organising their belongings, streamline entry to the two buildings and also to ease pressure at the start of day, we operate a 'soft start' every day. All of which benefit the children as they ready themselves for a full day of learning.
At 8.35am the playground gates are opened by staff, who are there to welcome all children as they arrive with their families, following the one-way system. Having walked up the school drive and onto the playground, parents can drop off their children at the blue barriers and give any messages for class teachers to the staff on duty. This means that between 8.35 and 8.55am, the children have direct access to their classrooms – no need to queue on the playground for entry!
The playground gates close at 8.55am. Entry after 8.55am needs to be via the school office, so that the registers can be completed.
Parents/Carers take their children to the top playground each morning and say goodbye as the children individually enter their building. In order to keep the system effective, only children will be allowed to enter the buildings at the start of the day. Our end of day routines are for parents to collect their child from class stations spread around the playground – so there is still time and safe space to find lost property and then exit via the steps to Chevening Road.
We found that these new arrangements help to support the children in developing their self-organisation skills and independence, as well as keeping arrival as COVID-secure as possible. Thank you for your cooperation and support.
