Twilight and Breakfast Club General Information

Twilight and Breakfast Club General Information (During COVID)

Twilight Club

Breakfast & Twilight sessions are currently taking place in the school hall

Our Twilight Club and Breakfast Clubs operate as a self-funding, non-profit making, extended service primarily to assist working parents.

Our charges represent excellent value for money, especially as we are aware of other schools charging significantly more for the equivalent.

Twilight Club is open each day from 3.15 – 5.00.

Our charging structure for this facility is available here on the school website. Sessions are now 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.  

We specifically request that places are booked for any given week by midnight on the Thursday 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. If you wish to book sessions after the cut off time or at the last minute, you will to contact the school office on admin@newton-poppleford.devon.sch.uk.

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).

If you have booked a place at Twilight club and then realise that the place is no longer required, call the office to cancel. You will not be able to cancel on line.  Places missed due to a child’s illness are always credited – as long as parents have informed the School Office of this reason. ‘No shows’ are unlikely to be credited.

If your child is booked in until 5.00pm and you are late collecting, you will be charged a late collection fee.

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.

The Twilight room telephone number is 07513269489 – please use this number if you are calling about anything to do with Twilight Club after 3.15pm. Before 3.15pm please phone the school number: 01395 568300.

Whilst at Twilight Club children will have the opportunity to do any homework, reading and play games. When the weather is fine they may also be able to play on the school field or playground when sports clubs are not taking place.

Breakfast Club

Opens at 8.10 am each school morning, and is aimed at helping working parents get to work on time! The cost of breakfast is included in the session. 

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 Thursday 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 admin@newton-poppleford.devon.sch.uk.

If you need to contact the school during Breakfast Club opening times (i.e. 8.10-8.40am) please use the Twilight room telephone number 07513269489.

We must request that children are not dropped off before 8.10m and left unsupervised –i.e the member of school staff supervising breakfast club must be present before parents leave.

If you have any queries regarding Breakfast or Twilight Clubs please speak to a member of the School Office staff.
