Five Ways Primary school operates a successful Governor managed Breakfast and After School Club facility during term time for pupils at the school. Both facilities take place in our EYFS area, Key Stage 1 Hall and adjoining Rainbow Room and benefit from access to secure fenced outdoor areas enabling children to take part in outdoor activities, weather permitting. The Clubs are staffed by a highly experienced, qualified and caring team under the supervision of our Extended Schools Educarer Mrs Sue Male and Miss Jade Grice, Extended Provision Leader. Overall responsibility for the provision is taken by Mrs Rachel Mander Headteacher, ensuring that the best possible care is available for your child.
The Breakfast club operates from 7.45am until 8.45am, when children are escorted to their classrooms. Breakfast is available until 8.30am with a variety of cereals, toast and fruit on offer along with fruit juice, water or milk. There are a range of activities available to the children including board games, construction toys, arts & crafts and physical games such as Twister and skittles.
After School Club
After school club runs from 3.15pm until 5.30pm. Nursery, Reception and Key Stage 1 pupils are collected from their classrooms at the end of the school day and escorted to the club. Pupils in Key Stage 2 are met at a central point in the KS2 building and again are escorted to the club. Assorted activities are available to all children. The After School Club staff are on hand to listen to your child read or assist with homework if required. A snack is provided including wraps, sandwiches and crumpets along with fruit and water or fruit juice to drink.
Please ensure your child is collected promptly at the end of the session. A late collection fee may be imposed if you are late collecting your child and repeated late collection will result in your child’s place being with- drawn.
