Breakfast & Tea Club

“My children are both really engaged by the musical opportunities at BVS. Both take time at home to practice their instruments for the love of music” Parent

Wrap Around Care at Bure Valley School

Welcome to Bure Valley School's dedicated page for our exceptional Breakfast and Tea Club services. If you require wrap-around care for your child, our clubs offer a nurturing and engaging environment for them to both start and finish their day.

Read on to discover the details of our Breakfast and Tea Clubs.

Breakfast Club

Our Breakfast Club is a thriving hub of activity open from 7:30 am, where qualified and experienced school staff create a welcoming atmosphere for your child. Here's what you can expect:

  • Warm Welcome: On arrival, our friendly staff will warmly welcome you and your child, and take any messages you may need to forward to your child’s teacher.
  • Healthy Start: Children will be offered a nutritious breakfast featuring cereals, porridge, toast, fruit, fruit juice, and occasionally bacon or sausage sandwiches.
  • Fun Activities: Children can engage in various activities such as speed stacking, dodgeball, and traditional games until 8:40 am when they are escorted to their classrooms.

Tea Club

Our Tea Club operates two sessions every school day: 3:15 - 4:30 pm and 4:30 - 6:00 pm. Your child can attend either or both sessions, with charges applicable accordingly. Here's what Tea Club offers:

  • Diverse Activities: Children have the opportunity to participate in outdoor play, construction with K’Nex and Lego, art projects, card and board games, and traditional games. Homework tasks and reading can also be completed during these sessions.

Drop Off & Collection

We ask that all pupils are accompanied by an adult to the door (rather than being dropped off from a car in the car park or on Hungate Street) and received by a member of the Breakfast Club team. Until the child is handed over to us in person, we are unable to take responsibility for their safety and welfare. In person hand over helps to keep the child safe and is also vital for communication between parents/carers and staff.

We encourage all parents and carers to collect their children from Tea Club. If a parent or carer would like their child to walk home alone from Tea Club – permission must be given to the school in written.

Booking and Payment

Advance Booking: Both Breakfast and Tea Club places must be booked 24 hours before they are required to secure a place. Booking is capped at a maximum of 30 children per session and placed will be on a first come first served basis. If places are not booked, we reserve the right to refuse entry.

Emergency Bookings: We appreciate that there will be times when you might need to make a last minute booking – if you need to do so, please call the school office to confirm your space.

If a child attends Breakfast or Tea Club and they have not been booked in correctly, the family will be sent a reminder. If this happens more than once, the child will not be able to access the provision and will be treated as a child who has arrived early for school and will be asked to wait in reception until school starts or they are collected by their adult. Following a final reminder, the child/family will no longer be able to use Breakfast and Tea Club services going forward.
