Sunrise and Sunset Club

Headline NewsSunrise and Sunset Club raised £130.41 at the Christmas Fair this year. Stalls included: ‘Hook a Pud’, ‘Decorate a Gingerbread Man’, ‘Find Santa’s Present’ and ‘Help Santa climb out of the Chimney’. Mrs Brooks would like to say a big thank you to everyone who volunteered their time and for all the generous donations and support. The money will be spent on some outdoor toys for Sunrise and Sunset Club.

Have a look at what we’ve been up to recently.

We are all super heroes!

We are proud to offer a Sunrise Breakfast Club from 7:30am with a variety of breakfast options and a Sunset After School Club until 6pm with snacks, drinks and optional tea.

We are also very proud of the quality and ‘value for money’ care provided before and after school for our children. Our breakfast club, originally called Rise and Shine, was set up in 2013. It was, and still is, very popular and places are taken very quickly. Following the success of Rise and Shine, parents were keen for us to provide a similar model for an after school club. A few years later, we opened Sunset Club. Rise and Shine was then referred to (by parents and children alike) as Sunrise Club, hence the change of name.

Sunrise Breakfast Club

Sunrise club is located at the back of school and accessed via a gate at the bottom of the staff car park. The children are signed in by a parent or carer from 7.30am and are taken to class at 8.55am. We provide a variety of healthy cereals, toast, fresh fruit and a different ‘Special’ everyday, including: beans on toast, scrambled egg on toast, cheese on toast to name but a few! Special dietary requirements are catered for on request. All the children are provided with their own toothbrush and encouraged to brush their teeth after eating.

Sunset After School Club

Set up in 2015, Sunset Club is located in the same area of school.

We offer after school care from 3.30pm until 6pm with different price bands and payment options to suit individual needs:

4.00pm *Late pick up service with snack and drink

4.30pm Snack and drink provided

5.15pm Snack and drink provided with additional tea option

6.00pm Snack and drink provided with additional tea option

* Recently we’ve added a late pick-up service. This can be booked on the same day via the school office. This has been added so parents who are running late, can feel reassured that their children are being cared for at Sunset club until they’re picked up by their parent or nominated carer.

Both our clubs provide a nurturing play-based environment supervised by qualified and caring staff so the children can enjoy indoor or outdoor creative play opportunities. Our friendly staff have developed good relationships with parents, children and their teachers and play a key role in the care and wellbeing of every child.

For further information about bookings and prices please contact the Sunrise and Sunset Manager, Mrs Brooks on 07842 094890 or phone the office on 01457 852721.
