Before School Care

We understand that some parents may need their children to come to school earlier or stay later than the normal school day, and we offer care before and after school from 7.30am to 5.45pm Monday to Friday.

Breakfast club

All pupils can arrive at school at 7.30am for breakfast club in our dining hall where they are supervised by staff before starting their school day. Breakfast consists of cereal, toast, juice, fruit and hot chocolate. Breakfast club must be booked in advance and incurs a small fee which is added to your school account.

Early drop-off 

Derwent Lodge and Yardley Court pupils can be dropped off at 7.45am and go directly to the Early Drop assembly point where they are supervised until 8.00am. There is no fee for this and no booking is required in advance.

All pupils may arrive in school from 8.00am. Registers are taken and lessons begin at 8.30am.

After School Care and Late Stay

Supervised care is available to all pupils from the end of their school day or the end of their Clubs and Activities programme until 5.45pm.

Termly pre-booking is recommended to ensure that all needs can be accommodated and ad hoc bookings can be made during term time via the School Office.

After School Care is a dedicated service for our SPP pupils, a light tea is provided and due to the age and supervision requirements it incurs a fee which is added to your school account.
