St Paul’s Primary School

St Pauls is home to one of our thriving after school clubs, managed by our Play Leader, and her fantastic team of passionate play workers. As of September 2023, we will also be offering a breakfast club.

We have an amazing play space at St Pauls, with a large hall, playground, football field & ginormous monster climbing frame! The children have free access to all these areas and can freely choose a range of toys and equipment. Our team are always there to supervise and make sure they can make the most of their time with us. We also offer planned activities and themed clubs to give the children options and choice which we feel is important.

The Breakfast Club

Breakfast School Club operates from 7.30am to 9am. The children can eat breakfast with us and play as they wish until school drop off. Key Stage 1 Children will be escorted to their classrooms and key stage 2 children will be escorted to the school playground and are expected to walk to their classrooms by themselves.

We offer children a choice of a healthy breakfast each morning, which usually consists of a mix of Cereal, Milk, Fruit, Toast, Crumpets and water.

The After School Club

After School Club operates from the end of the School day to either 4:30pm or 6pm, Key Stage 1 children will be collected from their classrooms by a playworker and key stage 2 children will be expected to make their own way to the after school club (internally through the school). Children who attend an extra circular club at the school will be collected by a playworker if they are in KS1 and a snack will be offered to them when they arrive at the after school club.

We are very lucky to have fantastic chef on our play worker team so we have a delicious changing menu of snacks that the children can enjoy with their friends, catching up after the school day. The children can then play as they wish until pick up time.

A member of our team is ready to meet parents at the school office entrance. Just ring the bell and we will come see you. We love catching up with parents and we are always ready to answer any questions or give feedback about a Childs afternoon with us. You can also always see what they have been up to on our notice board that gets updated daily.

    Depending on the size of the club and the day you need to book, we try our best to accommodate any last minute bookings.

    For the Breakfast and Afterschool Club session(s), if less than a months’ notice of cancellation is given, we will unfortunately have to charge for the session(s), after which you will lose the regular booking pattern and should you require it again will need to join our waiting list. If more than a months’ notice is given you will not be charged but will still lose your regular booking pattern and should you require it again will need to join our waiting list. However if you would like to hold onto the regular session, then we will offer to keep this open for a small fee – 50% of the sessions fee. You are free to make a permanent cancellation to the regular session, please note we will then offer this session to another child who is currently on our waiting for a place.

    No. We offer places on a first come first served basis. The only time this is not used is when a child is on the waiting list but are not able to start, we then hold their place until it is needed and then make offers to children next on the list.

    Yes. Most of our breakfast / after school session hold a waiting list. We recommend contacting us at the earliest possibility to register your child and add them to the waiting list for your required days.

    Each club provides a slightly different menu. Generally for breakfast there is a variety of cereals, toast, yoghurts and fresh fruit with water, milk and fruit juice available to drink. In the after school clubs there is likely to be a variety of vegetables, crackers, breadsticks, meats and cheeses. To drink there is diluting juice and water. Fresh fruit is available continually.

    Yes. We do encourage all parents to visit the after school club before their child starts. This gives parents and children time to meet the Playleaders and Playworkers and ask any questions they may have. It is also a great chance for children to familarise themselves with the layout and see if they already have friends attending.

    Each school with stagger reception start dates slightly differently. When your sessions are confirmed, please provide us with the date you wish your child to start attending the club. This is normally similar dates to when they start school full time.
