Rise and Shine – Breakfast Club

About Rise and Shine

We provide good quality childcare for the children of Radipole Primary School from Reception to Year 6 and we have an experienced and enthusiastic staff.

We aim to provide a nutritious and filling breakfast which will prepare your child for the school day.

We are committed to providing equal opportunities for play and participation and will ensure that your child will have a safe and happy time at Rise and Shine Breakfast Club.

We listen to the needs and preferences of the children and their parents/carers and try where possible to meet those needs eg particular foods.

We encourage children to use Rise and Shine as a social opportunity, chat, learn to share, co-operation, and at the same time to learn about the benefits of healthy eating.

We all sit around the breakfast table until we have finished eating, then quiet play or activities are chosen.  We may do a group activity outside, if the weather permits.

We welcome feedback from children and parents/carers in regards to the service we provide.

Children will be expected to take an active part in the club, for example, helping to clear away.

The success of the club depends on the co-operation and sharing between all those involved.  Parents should address any comments they wish to make to the School Business Manager or the Headteacher at the school.

Aims of Rise and Shine

  • To support working parents by providing a high quality service which meets the needs of both parents/carers and children;
  • To provide a reliable, safe supportive and welcoming environment where children can play, have fun, relax and be with friends;
  • To offer the children an opportunity of having a healthy breakfast at the start of the school day.  We provide unlimited food.
