Breakfast Provision

Government guidance asks schools, where possible, to consider resuming breakfast provision from the Autumn Term and build this up over time.

In the first instance, we will be opening up breakfast club places to working parents who need this provision at the start of their working day and where there is no other form of child care available to them.

Working parents who need breakfast club provision are asked to obtain proof of their working hours and/or shift patterns and e-mail these to the school office:  office@christchurchcofeacademy.co.uk.

Alternatively, your employer may wish to e-mail documentation direct to the school office on your behalf.

'Key Worker' Note:  If your child is currently attending full-time as part of our key worker bubble then there is no requirement for you to do this again.  A full-time place will automatically be allocated.  For part-time workers, please follow instructions above and e-mail working hours and/or shift patterns direct to the school office.

Friday After School Provision

You will remember in February 2020 we introduced an earlier finish on Fridays.  We will be resuming this as part of our planned return in September.  

We will continue to make provision for working parents (who have no alternative child care) to accommodate a later pick up time of no later than 3.30 pm.  We will of course need written proof of working hours/shift patterns from employers before allocating a place. Employers must e-mail confirmation to the school office:  office@christchurchcofeacademy.co.uk.

For those parents who have already submitted shift patterns and confirmation from employers, where full time working hours are evident as part as an application for Breakfast Club, you need not apply again.  Simply telephone the office to confirm that a place is required.

Please be advised that this will not take the format of an 'after-school' club.  No PE clothing or otherwise will be required.  This provision will support children in completing homework tasks set by their class teachers.
