DAILY SCHEDULE

 

Upon arrival, the children will be offered Breakfast consisting of a choice of cereal, yogurt and fruit. Should your child have a favourite cereal that we do not stock please let us know and we will do our best to cater for them (please note we are a nut free club so there may be certain cereals we cannot provide). BREAKFAST FINISHES AT 8.10AM to allow time to tidy up.

Once finished eating the children are free to play games and take part in art and craft activities, or just sit down and read a book.

AFTER SCHOOL CLUB

LOCATION

 

Quackers Breakfast Club can be found in the Upper Part of the School within the Key Stage 2 Area. The Club is run out of the Art Area in between Years 4, 5 and 6.

PICK UP DETAILS

 

You will need to enter the Playground via the Main Gates and walk round the side of the School, into the Playground and carry onto the end of the building where you can then turn right and the Club is accessed via the Second Door. PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN THE CAR PARK AS IT BELONGS TO THE SCHOOL.

HANDOVER WITH THE SCHOOL – ENSURING YOUR CHILDS SAFETY

 

We provide the school with a register of those attending to ensure your child reaches us safely. For children In Reception Class starting straight after school a handover between the Teacher and Club Staff takes place, for all other years the children will be sent to the Club by their Teachers.

Should a child we are expecting not arrive after school we will inform the School who will enact THEIR missing child policy.

Please let us know if possible by 12.00 noon if your child will not be attending THAT day. Failure to do this MAY see a £5 charge added to cover time wasted looking for your child/children and may result in the withdrawal of our services to you. This is also important if your child is to attend another Club before coming to us and we have not been told of this on the Booking Form.

If coming to us later from ANY other Club you will need to liaise directly with them to ensure your child is brought to Quackers as WE DO NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR A CHILD UNTIL THEY ARRIVE AT OUR CLUB.

THE TEAM

 

The Club is Managed by Maggie with the help of her team who all hold Paediatric First Aid Certificates.

DAILY SCHEDULE

 

Once all children have arrived and the register has been taken, we all go outside and play until 4.30PM. This allows children to get some fresh air and give them the opportunity for physical activity such as football, skipping, rounders etc.  We also have areas where the children can just sit and talk outside should they be tired after their day at School. During the warmer months we may also set up arts and craft activities outside.

We do ask that you send your child in with the appropriate clothing such as hat, coat, gloves and scarves during the winter and a hat during the summer as we will always try and get outside unless it is not safe to do so or is heavily raining.

Around 4.30PM a Snack is served where the children are encouraged to make their own choices as to what they eat whilst they sit in groups overseen by a Team Member and they are encouraged to prepare their own food in line with Ofsted best practice. Snack normally consists of a choice of two of the following foods being Rolls, Sandwiches, Wraps and Cracker Bread. For fillings there is always a choice of Ham slices, Chicken slices, Cheese, Quorn, Marmite, Jam and Honey. With every tea two varieties of Vegetables and two  varieties of Fruit are offered.

Water is available throughout the entire session and during tea a choice of Water and Sugar Free Squash is provided. WE DO NOT provide biscuits or cake.

Please note that due to allergies of other children we CANNOT allow children to eat food brought in from outside the Club. Should you child have a certain food preference please inform us and we will do our best to accommodate them. We cater for all allergies and religious dietary requirements.

After Snack, the children will either have access to outside games or a choice of inside board games, arts and crafts, small world or space to sit quietly and read or do homework.

1. Emergency Contacts - You will be asked for 2 contacts in addition to yourself in order to be able to register. Should you not have 2 extra contacts, please add your own name followed by a number 1 or 2 so the names differ.

2. Drop down boxes - Please ensure you read and answer the following 3 questions carefully as an incorrect answer will delay your booking until Authorised by us.

  • Does your child have any Food or Other Allergies. - ALLERGIES

  • I consent to any emergency medical treatment necessary whilst my child is at Quackers Out of School Clubs. I authorise the Manager to seek any necessary emergency medical advice or treatment.-Emergency Medical Treatment
