We value community and meeting the needs of families of Cockburn Haigh Road Academy. After establishing there is a need for a “wrap-around” childcare service, the school is proud to be able to offer a breakfast and after school club within a safe and secure environment, offering a range of activities based on the children’s interests. This wrap-around care provision is for the current children of Cockburn Haigh Road before school and the children of Cockburn Haigh Road and Rothwell Victoria Junior School after school, term time only.
Our Breakfast Club runs from 7.45am to 8.40am, Monday to Friday. The club will be fully supervised, providing a safe and fun start to the day which includes indoor activities, games and reading. There will be a choice of breakfast cereals, toast and fruit for your child/children to enjoy plus a drink each day.
After School Care
Our Key Stage 1 / Key Stage Two After School club runs from 3.10pm to 6pm Monday to Friday. The club is fully supervised and the children will be encouraged to have fun through play-based activities. Cockburn Haigh Road children may attend curricular after school clubs and then the wraparound provision. We are not able to collect Rothwell Victoria children from their after school clubs.
The Early Years After School Club runs from 3.10pm to 5.30pm Monday to Friday. Mrs Hall holds an EYFS Level 3 qualification and works in Early Years at Cockburn Haigh Road during the school day. She is responsible for the day to day care of the children after school, under the guidance of Mrs Padgett. Staff plan and facilitate open ended experiences and learning and play opportunities that the children will enjoy and that are in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage statutory requirements. For assessment, they will report back to the Nursery and Reception class teachers and this will help form individual targets.
The After School Club is lucky enough to be able to take full advantage of the whole school environment, including the playground, field and trim trail. The children are free to choose from a selection of both planned and unplanned activities which enhances their learning, and resources will be readily available.
We recognise the importance of healthy eating, the children will sit down to a healthy snack around 4.30pm. A variety of sandwiches, wraps, crumpets, fruit and vegetables will be provided at this time. Baked beans on toast and soup will also be included on our menu at certain times.
Please contact the school office to request a place at Breakfast and/or After School Club.
