The Cathedral School of St Peter and St John operate a paid breakfast and afterschool club for parents who work. This is an exciting provision for the children who attend and is run by the following school staff:
Miss Jordan - School Business Manager
Mrs Leech - Breakfast and Afterschool Club (Senior Playworker/Lead Supervisor)
Mrs Clarke - Breakfast Club Playworker
Mrs McNeill - Afterschool Club Playworker
All of our staff are trained to work in the clubs and hold the appropriate level food hygiene certificates, which are on display in the cabin. The cabin is located in the playground in KS2. This provision is self funding and does not rely on any school delegated budget. There is great demand for this provision and it may not always be possible to allocate all requested provision. School can only allocate for a term in advance. Payment is required in advance - booking forms with full information is available in the second half term for the next termly provision.
School is registered for those who wish to access the government tax-free childcare facility. Tax-Free Childcare is an online payment account, topped up by the government, which parents can use solely to pay their childcare costs. for every £8 that families pay in, the government will make a top-up payment of £2, up to a maximum of £2,000 per child. To be eligible, parents must be in work (including self-employment) and each earning at least £120.00 per week and not more than £100,000 per year.

After School Club
The children participate in a fantastic array of planned activities in the after-school club - they learn about specific topics, for example - life in the sea, animals of the artic, healthy eating, gardening, use of ICT - to name but a fraction and all age-appropriate. There are many craft activities and all the children spend some fun time extending their number knowledge (Times Table Rockstars!) and enjoy dedicated reading time. In the warmer months, lots of outside games and activities are the order of the day building teamwork and resilience. The staff are trained and very experienced teaching assistants. The children are provided with a snack and plenty of fruit and fresh water - healthy minds, health bodies! As a school we feel it is important to continue to promote in the clubs, as in school, our children to be the best that they can be at all times equipping them to succeed in life.
All queries regarding afterschool club can be made to the School Business Manager Miss L Jordan or Paid Clubs Supervisor Mrs Leech.
School is ever aware of all things safeguarding, and so there are some rules that parents need to know about and abide by - please read below the clubs rules and procedures policy. This is not an exhaustive list, and parents are asked to sign their acknowledgement if allocated any provision. Any queries/clarification should be directed to Miss Jordan or Mrs Bailey.
