Dear Parents and Carers
Breakfast Club and Morning Routines
You will have received by parent mail the letter from the Director of Education announcing that from September 2018 there will be a charge of £1 for the child-care element of Breakfast Clubs. I appreciate that this is a sign of the times and an extra £5 per child per week is an additional burden on a family budget. Unfortunately School is powerless to do anything about this.
It does mean though that we have to be clear as to how we manage the Club and place restrictions on what, up till now, has been a very informally organised provision and a great help to families.
From September we will continue to operate the Breakfast Club but on this understanding:
The total time of the club is an hour, 8:00 – 9:00
It is important to understand that the breakfast, both food and a supervision element is free. A nominal 20 minute period is allocated within the 8:00 – 8:40am breakfast serving times for children to be served, eat and clear away.
Children in receipt of free school meals are exempt from the charge.
We ask you all to honour this requirement and not take advantage of any supervision that may be provided by the Breakfast Club staff on the playground. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
Available for the children for breakfast is a selection of toast, cereals, yoghurt, fruit, juice and water
