Welcome to Bursledon Schools Breakfast Club. We have been running our successful breakfast club for many years now. The aim of it is to support pupils with a positive start to the day which is based on a flexible approach for parents/carers.
Currently, since COVID there are two clubs; one for the infants and one for the juniors. Places must be booked in advance via SCOPAY. However, if you have never booked for breakfast club before you must ring the school office first to ask to be allowed access to book and also to confirm any additional details that might be required such as dietary needs.
The club runs from 7.45am until the start of the school day. It is £4.00 per session.
The club is managed by staff already employed in both our schools and they excellent relationships and knowledge of the pupils.
Entry to the club in the infants is via the playground and through the main hall door. Please ensure that your child is registered with staff before you leave.
Entry to the juniors is via the main front office door, and again please ensure your child is registered with staff before you leave.
Your child will then be welcomed by a member of staff and offered breakfast.
Breakfast consists of fresh juice, tea, milk, cereals, toast, and quite often pancakes or waffles.
If you want your child to have breakfast at the club, please ensure they arrive before 08.15am - after this time we are not able to provide food.
Also it is vitally important that you advise us of any allergies or intolerances that your child may have. We appreciate that you will probably already have told the school about this, and they will have let breakfast club staff know. However, to be absolutely safe, we would like you to talk to our breakfast club staff too about any issues that could affect your child.
After they have eaten, the children are then free to play in the hall - there are a range of activities to engage them with and we buy additional games or resources based on the children's interests.
Payment for breakfast club must be in advance. We do not want you to build up a debt owing us money which could mean your child is not able to access the club. We have a number of ways that you can pay;
- Online – as soon as you enrol your child for breakfast club, it will show up on your SCO Pay account that your child attends the club. You can pay money in advance this way.
- Childcare Voucher schemes including HMRC Tax free childcare scheme. Your employer may offer you a voucher scheme. They will advise you how to enrol on the scheme. We currently take vouchers from Edenred, Computershare, Fideliti, and Kiddivouchers, as well as HMRC. We are happy to use other companies but you will need to speak with our Business Manager about it. If you are planning to use vouchers please let our Business Manager know.
