Breakfast Club and wellbeing
The aim of Breakfast Club is to provide a positive and settled start to the day for all children through providing a wide range of activities, incorporating learning and social development.
Each morning a nutritious breakfast is provided. The children are encouraged to help themselves, sit down and talk together, and then clear away their dishes; the idea is that our breakfast club replicates as far as possible the atmosphere of a family meal. At the end of the session, the children are well fed, happy and ready to take part in wellbeing activities.
Breakfast Club is £2 per child and runs from 7.30 - 8.15am each day.
At Rillington we strongly advocate wellbeing, we see it as being fundamental to our health and overall happiness. Having a strong and well-adapted sense of wellbeing can help us overcome difficulties and help us achieve our goals in life... in short, having high levels of wellbeing helps us to be the best versions of ourselves. As a result we have pledged to offer wellbeing activities to all our pupils each morning as part of our wider curriculum.
From 8.15am children can participate in different wellbeing activities throughout the week, these are provided at no cost to our families.
Activities for autumn term 1:
- Monday Golf run by Ivan Oliver with support from Mrs Wilson
- Tuesday Family board games run by Mrs Clemmit
- Wednesday Lego run by a different staff member each week
- Thursday Computing run by Mrs McBurnie
- Friday TT Rockstars and maths run by Mrs Grant
We are open every weekday during term time, excluding inset days from 7.30am to 8.45am.
Your child(ren) can be dropped off at any time between these times. Children enter Breakfast Club through the main school entrance. Unfortunately we are not able to serve breakfast to children arriving after 8.15am, except in exceptional circumstances.
Children who are attending wellbeing sessions can arrive from 8.15am.
Breakfast Club costs £2 per session, which includes a choice of breakfast and participating in the wrap around wellbeing activity of the day.
The cost remains the same regardless of the time that your child arrives, or whether or not he or she has breakfast.
Please book a place for either breakfast club or wellbeing by emailing Mrs Tait - firstname.lastname@example.org
Payment is made in advance via the Parent Pay site. We ask that you pay for all sessions selected each half term.
Bookings can be accepted only for children for whom an enrollment form has been completed. If you are booking your child’s first session, then please complete an enrollment form and give it to the office prior to your child’s first session.
If you wish to cancel your booking, we require at least one week’s notice in writing. After this time, it is still vital for you to inform us if your child is not attending the club, including illness.
It is vital that children attending Breakfast Club are signed in.
Children must be signed in by a member of staff.
We aim to make each child happy and comfortable at the Breakfast Club.
You can help us by providing as much information as possible about their likes/dislikes on the enrolment forms. Any information relevant to a particular day can be discussed briefly at drop-off. If you have any more detailed issues that you would like to discuss with club staff, then you can arrange a mutually convenient time for a telephone call or short meeting outside of club operation times.
As you will appreciate, the Breakfast Club staff have several children to look after and cannot pass individual messages onto class teachers. If there is something which the class teacher needs to know, then please write a note or call the school office.
In the first instance, if you should have any concerns about the way the club is being operated, please raise them with Mrs Tait (School office manager).
