Before and After School Care at Bishop Challoner for 3 – 11 year olds
At Bishop Challoner Breakfast Club opens from 07:15 to the start of the school day at 08:30. Breakfast is served until 08:05.
We aim to provide an emotionally and physically safe environment for children; an environment where children feel comfortable, where their self-confidence, sense of responsibility, and an awareness of others can grow in a positive direction.
Because it is important that they are alert and calm at the start of the school day, children are provided with healthy options for breakfast; low sugar/low additive cereals, wholemeal toast, pancakes, spreads, fruit, fruit juice, fromage frais and Baby Bel. Water and milk is always available. Bishop Challoner is a “Nut Free” School.
While eating, children are encouraged to chat quietly, calmly, and politely.
After breakfast, children can choose from a wide range of activities and are encouraged to play independently, imaginatively and fairly. There are a variety of independent and adult lead craft activities planned throughout the year.
At the end of a session, children from Nursery to year 2 are delivered to their class teachers. Years 3, 4, 5, and 6 make their way to their class lines without supervision.
After School Club
The onsite After School Club runs from 3.15pm till 6pm for children in Nursery to Year 4. We offer a safe and secure environment where children can relax and play under the supervision of qualified staff. We provide adult directed activities, e.g. craft, cooking and games alongside child-led free play. The children may choose from the various accessible, age appropriate resources and are encouraged to engage socially with children from other year groups therefore strengthening relationships within the school community.
At the end of the school day, pupils from Years 5 upwards may opt to join Homework Club in the Library. These supervised sessions allow pupils to complete homework tasks in a quiet setting.
