COLPAI runs an ‘extended’ school day from 8:00am to 6:00pm offering an exciting range of enrichment activities to complement our curriculum.
Early Bird Breakfast Club offers a friendly and stimulating environment, providing parents with quality childcare during term time.
The aims of breakfast club are:
- To provide high quality affordable childcare
- To offer children a stimulating and creative range of early morning activities
- To offer a safe and secure place to play
- To provide healthy and nutritious food prepared freshly on our premises.
Early Bird Breakfast Club runs daily from 8:00am-9:00am, opening initially for Reception pupils in September 2017 but as the school grows to reach its full compliment, breakfast club will expand to welcome pupils from each new year group. The school offers a delicious variety of cereal, fruit, yoghurt, toast, fruit juice or milk and breakfast is served until 8:30am. Afterwards, children can enjoy early morning activities choosing from: the reading corner, art and craft activities, board games, construction toys, puzzles and homework club.
Enrichment Club 3:30pm - 6:00pm
Over and above the formal curriculum, COLPAI runs a daily Enrichment Club to develop character, talents and interests outside of the classroom. This we believe is an important part of our provision that will enhance learning. We will consult with parents and children and engage with local community groups, volunteers, specialist instructors and audit the skills and talents of our school staff to create an exciting programme of enrichment activities. We ask families to contribute to the cost of these additional activities to ensure a broad provision.
As part of our ‘extended’ day offer, we aim for every child to remain within school until 4:30pm for at least one session per week. In this way hope to ensure every child has access to an extended opportunity be it sports, the creative arts, music, dance, drama, coding, environment club etc... We aim to provide funding to support pupils in receipt of pupil premium, enabling participation in one of the weekly Enrichment Club sessions. Beyond 4:30pm, we offer parents a further option of quality child care until 6:00pm.
