VPS Breakfast Club and After School Childcare
VPS Breakfast Club
VPS Breakfast Club is an in-house childcare club operating daily during term time (excluding INSET days). Children are provided with a choice of toast, cereal and juice and are given the opportunity to socialise with their peers, carry out quiet activities such as colouring/drawing and play games inside and outside (weather permitting). We accept children from all year groups (R to 6) and all VPS staff are appropriately trained.
The drop off point for the club is the Key Stage 1 school gate (not the school office). Please queue by the gate and a member of the VPS Breakfast Club team will open the gates to let you through at the following times:
- 1st Entry Time – 7:45am
- 2nd Entry Time – 8:00am
- 3rd Entry Time – 8:15am
- 4th and Last Entry Time – 8:25am
Please note, staff will open the gates at these times only, they will not wait by the gate, you will need to arrive promptly for the times stated above and if you arrive later than your desired time slot please queue until the next opening time.
There is an initial, one-off registration fee of £2.50 for every child attending the club, this must be paid via Scopay at the point of registering your child and before any booked sessions take place. The rate is £3.50 per session unless your child is registered for free school meals, in which case there is no session charge, just a registration fee.
If you require assistance with logging on to your child’s Scopay account, please contact Mr Christmas in the school office.
We accept child care/employers' vouchers as a method of payment, as well as the government tax free childcare scheme. If you are registered with a childcare voucher scheme please ensure you include these details on the registration form to enable us to update our records.
If you would like to register and book your child in to sessions for VPS Breakfast Club please complete the registration form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
After School Childcare Arrangements
At present, we do not offer an after school childcare club but we are regularly reviewing the demand. However, we do have links with The Scott Centre after school childcare club in Andover run by Youth Options. A mini bus is in operation from the school to their centre at Mead Hedges, Andover, SP10 2LB every day during term time. If you would like to book your child in for after school childcare with The Scott Centre please contact them directly on T: 01264 332188 or visit their website at https://youthoptions.org.uk/what-we-do/our-centres/scott-centre
