Before and after school care
Caring for children at Spring Cottage starts before the school day begins with our Breakfast Club.
Breakfast Club opens at 7.30am and runs until the start of the school day and is managed by school staff. We meet in the homely environment of our school dining room.
Whilst Breakfast Club takes place within our school, every effort is made to make it feel different – we don’t want children to feel they are in lessons at this time of the day. A wide range of activities such as colouring, craft, books and board games are organised.
Each morning children are offered a simple, but healthy breakfast. This is usually a range of cereals, toast, fruit juice, yogurts, fresh fruit and milk. From time to time we try to introduce children to crumpets, croissants and other breakfast goods.
Breakfast Club is run by three members of school staff: Mrs M Daniels, Mrs D Firth and Mrs J Crimlis.
If you wish your children can attend the school breakfast club. Children should arrive between 7.30am and 8.30am during which time they will be given cereals and toast. To register for breakfast club a form available in the school office must be completed prior to attendance. Breakfast club costs £2 per day per child.

After school club
Children can be cared for after school by attending our After School Club based in the KS2 building.
After School runs from 3.15pm - 5.45pm and is managed by Mrs Irwin, Mrs Daniels and Mrs Williams. The club is open to all children who are attending Spring Cottage Primary School from Foundation Stage 2 to Year 6.
Children in EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2 are collected directly from their classrooms after school has finished, and children in KS2 meet a member of staff in the double storey hall to be taken to the provision.
Every child is provided with a healthy snack and a drink and a range of activities will be provided to keep them entertained. Children will also be given the opportunity to complete homework tasks, visit the library and learn spellings!
The cost per session is £6.50 per child, or £30.00 per week for all 5 days. This will reduce to £6.00 per day for more than one child from the same family. Bookings must made at least one week in advance, although bookings can be made 4 weeks at a time. Monies will be reimbursed in cases of sickness.
A late collection fee will apply if your child is not collected by 5.45pm.
All other school policies apply for after school provision.
