Breakfast and After School Club

Thank you very much for your continued support of the After School and/or Breakfast Clubs. As you are aware the before and after school provision is a valued part of life at Singlegate Primary School. Both clubs are incredibly popular and heavily subscribed, with over 150 children on our attendance register.

Children can be booked into the clubs on an annual basis to secure their place. We operate on a first come, first served basis. Booking forms are available both via the school office and/or via the school website. If you wish to complete the form electronically it can be downloaded as a PDF file and emailed directly to Mrs Samboer at esamboer@singlegate.merton.sch.uk . This will ensure that all forms arrive securely. Mrs Samboer will continue to be responsible for all bookings. Booking forms are now available to allow for bookings in the new academic year if desired.

It is worth booking well in advance to avoid disappointment. Any bookings will only be secured with payment of the total fee for the proposed number of sessions with your booking. If your child is absent due to sickness we will not be able to refund the booking fee. However with a longer term absence (2 days or more) we would carry the session forward for you. This would enable us to securely fill that space with due notice. Payments for extended services provision using the childcare vouchers will continue with the current booking arrangements. Cancelled sessions require one week’s notice, in advance, to avoid being charged.

The Breakfast Club will provide 40 places for children aged 5 – 11 years old, from 7:40am – 8:40am, Monday to Friday.

30 places will be allocated for under 8 years old provision.

24 places will be allocated for over 8 years old provision.

Daily sessions will now be charged at £12.50 per day, less than £5.00 per hour for childcare.

The After School club will continue to operate from the Tower Hill site. There are two rooms available for use; an under and over 8 year old provision, however at times the clubs may decide on planned joint activities.

There will be two planned ‘teatimes’ for children from 4:30 – 5:15pm. Children will have access to snacks/drinks at all times throughout the session. Teatimes are staggered to ensure that the younger children eat earlier if hungry and that children who are collected mid-session are still catered for before they leave.

In order to ensure that child to adult ratios are met, there will be three members of staff working with the under 8 years old club.

There will be two members of staff working with the over 8 years old club.
