FACE Before and After School Care

TOAST, A Little Piece of Toast! *

Breakfast Club serves breakfast on request up to 8:25am .. just ask on the day.



We normally have spaces available at both Breakfast Club and FACE (After School Club). Some evenings are proving very popular (Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday) and we are often fully booked on those evenings.

Booking is required for Breakfast Club or FACE.

Opening Times 

FACE is open every night after a normal school day and last pick up is 6pm.

Breakfast Club starts at 7:45 am and runs to start of school.

For FACE it is charged at £13.50 a session and for Breakfast club £8.25.The availability of places, especially an emergency place, is not guaranteed as the session requested may be full.


We accept Tax Free Vouchers (get the Government to give you £2 on top of every £8 you spend)  https://www.gov.uk/tax-free-childcare  Please inform Sarah Roderick before making a payment with Tax Free Vouchers as we do not receive any notifications.

Payment can be made by card via SchoolMoney and we accept child care vouchers from many different providers.

Operation & Ethos

 We are primarily a play club and defend the rights of a child to experience, learn and develop through free choice play, art and design, within the parameters of respect and a few key rules to keep us all safe and happy.

Infant children are brought along to FACE by a member of school staff and older children make their own way once their teacher allows them to go. Breakfast Club drop off and FACE pick up are via the main school entrance (near the school office window).

Allergens & Food Intolerences

Please keep us up to date with any allergies or food intolerences so that we can ensure that any snacks offered to your child are suitable. We ask to be informed of any issues at the time of registration, school has set procedures for notification and we get updated with these changes once a year. To make sure that your child is not put at risk please inform Sarah Roderick as soon as there is any change in intolerences and allergies. Please inform Breakfast Club/ FACE staff of any allergies or intolerences if you are expecting your child to eat or drink with us or, if they may suffer a very severe allergic reaction, you suspect that they may come in contact with that substance at our club.


Sadly due to a lack of respect being shown by some children FACE/BC will now be charging for any breakages that are caused by a lack of respect for the toys or a deliberate act. Parents will either be charged or they can volunteer to replace the equipment with an item of similar quality.
