Hassocks

Breakfast Club

A typical morning

Our Breakfast Club at Hassocks Infant School is just a 10-minute walk from the station.  It runs from the large school hall, where we are able to set up a separate dining area as well as a range of different activities for kids to choose from once they’ve eaten.  In good weather, we also make the most of 2 outdoor playground spaces.

Each morning our experienced staff team work hard to offer kids a nutritious and filling breakfast, alongside a varied and appropriate choice of activities.  We are constantly monitoring and supporting children, to ensure everyone has been well fed, entertained & is ready to start their day by the time they leave breakfast club to be safely escorted to their classroom on-site or join our walking bus to Windmills.

7:30am – Start of school

Our breakfast club is open from 7:30am every morning to offer children a lovely breakfast and some fun and games before school. Children tend to arrive any time between 7:30 – 8:15am, and their first task is to eat some breakfast (if they haven’t already had it at home).

They then choose their free packed lunch for the day ahead, consisting of a sandwich, two pieces of fruit, a cereal bar and a packet of crisps. Afterwards, kids settle down to some independent activities before the club comes together to play a staff-led game. Shortly after, children from Windmills School head off via walking bus, while Hassocks Infant School children continue to participate in group activities until they are dropped to their classrooms.

What will my child be given in their packed lunch?

Your child’s packed lunch will be made up of a sandwich or wrap, 2 pieces of fruit, a packet of crisps and a cereal bar.  Kids will be able to choose all their own fillings and flavours from our range of options.  Please provide your child with their own water bottle (we will be happy to fill this up at club if necessary).

Do you cater for food allergies, intolerances and religious food preferences?

Yes.  When you register your child online, we will ask you to inform us of any allergies or intolerances to allow us to prepare for any specific needs.  If you would like to discuss this further, please contact us and a member of our catering team would be happy to speak to you.

Can my child bring their own food?

Children are not allowed to bring food from home to after school club.  This is because we cater for a complex range of allergies & intolerances, and need keep tight control of any potential allergens on site.

If my child doesn’t want to join in with some activities are there other things for him/her to do?

Your child will always find a choice of activities available at breakfast club.  Our staff are always on hand to listen to children’s individual likes and dislikes and we are confident that we will be able to guide children towards an activity they can take part in.

What is a walking bus?

A walking bus is a group of children walking to school under the supervision of one or more adults – it’s as simple as that.  All our walking buses follow risk-assessed routes and are led by trained staff.  All children and staff wear high visibility vests.

Does the walking bus operate in wet weather?

The walking bus will operate in wet weather, unless the rain is torrential!  Therefore, please try to ensure your child always arrives at club with clothing that is suitable for the weather that day (e.g. waterproof coat, sun hat).  If the weather is terrible, our Staff may need to put temporary transport arrangements in place to transport children that would normally walk to school, using our minibuses instead.  Any arrangement would be dependent on the number of staff and children we have attending each school, on a given morning.

What if my child is ill?

If your child is ill before you leave home in the morning we ask you not to bring them club, but to follow guidelines set by most schools – in the case of sickness and diarrhoea your child should be free of all symptoms for 48 hours before attending.

If my child needs medication will it be administered at Club?

Any medication must be left with the Manager and we ask you to sign a permission form to enable us to give specific medicines.

What if I want to cancel my booking?

Please see the Cancellation Policy in our terms and conditions for booking.
