Extended Schools

About Our Extended School Provision


We provide good quality childcare before and after school for the children of Radipole Primary School from Reception to Year 6, run by experienced and enthusiastic staff.


If your child attends Breakfast Club, we aim to provide a nutritious and filling breakfast which will prepare your child for the school day. After School Club are provided with a selection of healthy snacks.


We are committed to providing equal opportunities for play and participation and will ensure that your child will have a safe and happy time at Breakfast Club or After School Club.


We listen to the needs and preferences of the children and their parents/carers and try where possible to meet those needs eg particular foods.


We encourage children to use Breakfast Club and After School Club as a social opportunity, chat, learn to share, co-operation, and at the same time to learn about the benefits of healthy eating.


We all sit around the table until we have finished eating, then quiet play or activities are chosen.  We may do a group activity outside, if the weather permits.


We welcome feedback from children and parents/carers in regards to the service we provide.


Children will be expected to take an active part in the club, for example, helping to clear away.


The success of the club depends on the co-operation and sharing between all those involved.  Parents should address any comments they wish to make to the School Business Manager or the Headteacher at the school.
