Currently Breakfast Club provides meals such as; cereals, beans on toast, cheese on toast, jam, marmalade or marmite on toast, fruit and fruit juices. Occasionally we have; sausages, eggs, croissants, tea cakes and yogurts.
After School Club
Aims and Objectives
We aim to provide a high quality After School Club provision that meets the needs of both parents and children. For parents, this means knowing that your child is safe and happy in a club that is reliable and offers a consistent service. For a child this means an environment that is safe, supportive and encouraging. It is a place to be with friends and make new ones and to be able to try out new activities, to relax, to have fun and enjoy themselves. The club will provide a balanced structure of activities and experiences.
The After School Club will run from 3.00pm, at the end of the school day until 4.00pm, Monday and Wednesday to Friday, during term time, there are no clubs on a Tuesday due to whole school staff meetings. The clubs will not operate during school Inset Days when the school is closed to pupils, nor the last day of each term (the last Friday). Please arrive promptly to collect your child from school reception at 4pm. Students will be provided with a drink and biscuit at the start of the club. If you are going to be late, please ensure that you contact school so that the Club Leader can be notified. It is important that you let staff know if anyone other than you (the parent/carer) will be collecting your child.
After School Club Behaviour
Parents are expected to give their support and encouragement to the aims of the After School Clubs and ensure that appropriate standards of punctuality, behaviour and discipline are maintained. By registering your child for a club activity, you confirm that you accept the authority of the After School Club staff and are happy for the staff to take all reasonable disciplinary or preventative action necessary to safeguard and promote the welfare of each child and the After School Club community. The After School Club will follow the Westhaven School Behaviour Policy.
Parents may be required to remove their child temporarily or permanently if the conduct of the child is unacceptable, and where the Extended Schools Manager considers that the continued presence of the child is incompatible with the interests of the After School Club. There would be no refund of fees in these circumstances.
After School Club Cost
Each club costs £5 per session, with the exception of Monday Clubs and Basketball Club, which are free. The costs are to cover staff and equipment costs. Clubs are bookable and payable each term, in advance, failure to do so, will result in refusal to offer a place to your child. Please complete the booking form and return to school, via your child’s tutor.
If you have any queries regarding Breakfast Club or an After School Club, comment or complaint please contact the Extended Schools Manager Ms Vincent, on the main school number.
