Breakfast & After School Clubs

Breakfast and After School Club Policy – 2016-17

Our Vision
The Breakfast and After School Clubs’ vision is to provide a safe, caring, happy, warm and stimulating environment for children, where parents and families can feel confident and assured that the staff are dedicated and motivated to provide high quality childcare. It is a service provided by Bladon C of E Primary School that supports parents and families. Any profit that is made from our extended service is re-invested in resources that the children will benefit from.

Curriculum
Planning ensures a broad range of activities that support the development of the whole child. Planning is in line with the school and is overseen by the Headteacher. Our After school club provision is detailed below. This can change depending on the PE area that the children are learning.

Staff
We use school staff to provide our wrap-around care. Matt Gregor (our PE specialist) and Susan Kemp (teaching assistant in Apple Class) are the lead people for this provision. The following shows which members of staff are working in school during a morning and an evening.

Accidents and Incidents
All accidents are recorded in the accident book and parents are informed. All head injuries and behavioural issues are reported to a member of the teaching staff and to the Headteacher who will take appropriate action.

Safeguarding
Staying safe is an essential part of the school’s breakfast and after school club provision. We ask all children to enter Breakfast club through the school hall door. This allows the member of staff to register the child and know who is in the building. Children in KS2 are allowed to put their things in the classroom; children in Foundation Stage and KS1 will place their belongings in the hall. They will be allowed to enter their classrooms at 8.30am. The register plays a crucial part of keeping children safe. At the beginning of each after school session the children will formally register. One of the leader members of staff will record who is present and indicate on the register if children are attending the session for either 1 or 2 hours. When children are being picked up after school ALL children must be signed out of the building. This is a school safeguarding expectation. If children in Year 5 and 6 are permitted to walk home by themselves, families must provide a written note detailing this permission. Children in Year 5 and 6 must then also make sure that they sign themselves out of the building. Please ensure that all children are collected on time. We have a very committed team who work to provide this service. When children are collected later than 5pm it causes huge problems for our staff. In the event of repeated lateness fines will be issued and the leadership team in school will be notified.

Booking children into clubs

When families want to book children into club they can do in several ways:

  1. Inform the office by completing the club booking form.
  2. Families of children in Cherry and Apple Class can inform the teacher in the classroom if they would like their child to attend club on a specific day, but 24 hours in advance. 
  1. Breakfast club does not need to be booked
  2. In emergency situations you can contact the school by telephoning and ask if a child can be booked into a club

 

In addition to this there are clubs which are operated by external organizations:

Martial Arts, Oxford Sport & Traditional Martial Arts (OSTMA)
