After School and Breakfast Club

Welcome

Langford Village Breakfast and After School Club is part of the Extended Services offered by Langford Village Community Primary School. We are based in the Portacabin on the school site and are open Monday to Friday, term time only.

The Club is run by a team of dedicated and highly qualified staff and the atmosphere is that of a big happy family.

Our Aims

Langford Village Breakfast and After School Club is not a substitute for school - our ethos is for 'free play and fun' in a safe and comfortable environment. Children come to the Club after a long day of learning at school, and they need to be able to unwind and have some fun. In accordance with recommendations from Ofsted, and weather permitting, the children are encouraged to take part in physical activities outside in the fresh air.

When they return to the Portacabin, they are able to choose from a wide variety of games and activities to suit all ages.

We are sometimes asked by parents if children can do homework at the Club. The answer is always yes. However the decision of whether the homework is done is up to the individual child - we will never force them to do it because it is always about ‘choice’ - their choice.

Typical Breakfast Club Session

When attending Breakfast Clun children are offered a varied choice of activities including watching DVD’s, board games, drawing and reading.

For those attending a full Breakfast Club session a healthy breakfast is served at 8am. At 8. 40am children in years 3, 4, 5 and 6 go to class independently. KS1 and FSU children are taken to class by staff and settled before the school day begins.

Typical After School Club Session

The children come to After School Club straight from School at 3:15pm. The younger children in Reception and years 1 and 2 are collected by members of staff.

On arrival at the Club, the children are first checked in on the register. They are then given a drink and a healthy snack before selecting which activity to participate in. Activities include going outside to play - this is usually on the School or playing field but it will very much depend upon the weather, use of laptops, homework, reading, watching a film, games, lego, craft activities etc.

For those attending a full after school session a light tea is served at 4.15pm. All food provided is healthy and of high quality, it varies from day to day and is on a 3 week rolling rota. The weekly menu will be displayed in the Club.
