Extended Services at Orchard Way
Our Breakfast Club and After School Care provide children with an opportunity to interact with children from all year groups and have free choice in a relaxed environment. We hope that you will find our charges to be very competitive.
Between 7:30am-8:30am, children are buzzed in at the main gate, or brought into the hall by their parent/carer for Breakfast Club. Food is served until 8:15 am, so your child will need to be in school by this time in order to eat breakfast. Children can choose from a variety of non-sugared cereals, wholemeal toast, fruit and a drink of milk or water. After eating, children can choose to play with Lego, jigsaw puzzles or do drawing/ colouring.
Please note, children will not be let into school before 7.30am.
The cost is £3.00
