Breakfast & Twilight Club General Information
Breakfast & Twilight sessions are held in the library and are open to children in Reception up to Year 6. We are not currently able to offer this for pre-school children.
Our Breakfast & Twilight Clubs operate as a self-funding, non-profit making, extended service primarily to assist parents.
Breakfast Club will run from 08:00 until the start of school.
Twilight Club is open each day from 3.15 – 5.00 (Monday to Friday) or 5.30 pm (Monday to Thursday).
Sessions are bookable via the School Gateway online payment facility. Payment is taken at the point of booking. If you wish to use a childcare voucher, please contact the school offices in advance with the details.
Booking of Breakfast and Twilight: We specifically request that places are booked for any given week by midnight on the Tuesday of the preceding week. Please do not book after this time, even if the system allows it, as we will not be able to guarantee adequate staffing. If you wish to book sessions after the cut off time or at the last minute, you will need to contact the school office on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parents are welcome to book and pay for a whole term at a time.
Whilst at Twilight Club, all children will be provided with a drink (water or juice) and a small snack (usually toast, biscuits and/or fruit).
Children attending another after school club (e.g. netball/Zumba) are able to go into twilight club afterwards if required – places should be booked in the usual way with the same charges applying.
Cancellation of bookings: If you have booked a place and then realise that the place is no longer required, please notify us at the earliest opportunity so that we can cancel the session and refund your payment. However, please note that once staffing has been set for any given week, places for that week will not be refunded except in exceptional circumstances. This means that in order to receive a refund for any given week, cancellations will need to be received on the Tuesday of the week prior to the session taking place i.e. the same as the booking deadline. Even if you are unable to receive a refund, we still need to know of cancellations so that we know which children we are expecting on any given night.
Parents are unable to cancel booked sessions themselves on School Gateway. Places missed due to a child’s illness (ie the child is absent from school on the day of the booking) are always credited. Please remind the school office of your child’s booking when you notify them of your child’s school absence.
If your child is booked in until 5.00pm and you are late collecting, you will be charged a late collection fee. Please see the 'Late Collection' policy.
The Twilight room telephone number is 07513269489 – please use this number after 3.15pm, if you need to contact a member of staff, while you child is attending twilight. (e.g. to advise if you are running late). Before 3.15pm please phone the school number: 01395 568300.
Opens at 8.00 am each school morning, and is aimed at helping working parents get to work on time.
Children will remain in the care of the member of staff on Breakfast Club duty until 8.45am, (i.e. School gates' official opening time), after which they will be able to go to their cloakrooms and drop off coats and bags, ready for the start of the day.
Places should be booked on line via the School Gateway. As with Twilight club we specifically request that places are booked for any given week by midnight on the Tuesday of the preceding week. Please do not book after this time, even if the system allows it, as we will not be able to guarantee staffing or refreshments. If you wish to book sessions after the cut off time or at the last minute, you will to contact the school office on email@example.com.
If you need to contact the school during Breakfast Club opening times (i.e. 8.00-8.45am) please use the Twilight room telephone number 07513269489.
We must request that children are not dropped off before 8.00am nor left unsupervised –i.e the member of school staff supervising breakfast club must be present before parents leave.
