BREAKFAST AND AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS
At Andrews’ Endowed, we are able to offer access to child care both before and after school, in the form of our Breakfast Club and our After school Club. Both are managed by Mrs Beverly Pither.
Our clubs operate in term time only and run from Monday to Friday. The clubs are open to all pupils at the school, from YR (Acorns) up to Y6.
To book a session with either club, your child must be registered with us. Please ask at the school office for a copy of our Registration Form. Please note that being registered does not guarantee a place at the club, and that we operate waiting lists when sessions are full. Once your child is registered, sessions can be booked on a regular basis, subject to availability. All bookings are organised via the school office or via email email@example.com. Bookings for Breakfast Club must be made at least 24 hours in advance and cannot be made on the day.
Breakfast Club – Runs every morning, Monday to Friday. Sessions start at 7.30 am, and end at 8.45 am, when the children head to their classrooms to begin their school day.
Breakfast Club is based in the school hall. Parents and carers can drop their children at the black gate, by the school office, where there will be an adult on hand to meet your child and help you to sign them in. Any messages for class teachers can be left with the staff by filling in one of our communication forms. Please remember that cars must be left on the road, not driven into the school carpark in the mornings.
Each session costs £6.00. A healthy breakfast of fresh fruit, juice, cereals, toast or muffins is served, and the children enjoy choosing from a variety of activities including active sporty sessions, art and craft, games and singing and dancing. There are always at least two members of staff. Mrs Donna Butcher leads the sessions, supported by one or two assistants, depending on the number of children attending.
After School Club – Operates from 3.30 pm until 6 pm Monday to Friday, supported by one or two assistants, depending on the number of children attending.
There are currently two times for collection at a cost £8.50 for a 5pm collection and £11.00 for a 6pm collection. All children must be signed out at the end of their session by the leader. All bookings are payable in advance. The cost of a session includes a substantial snack. Our After School Club children are able to enjoy a number of different activities during their time with us including both inside and outside games, arts and crafts, sports, drama and baking

School Run Activity Clubs
We recognise that every child is different and the importance of the individual and diverse ways that children develop and learn. We pride ourselves on nurturing the children’s individuality and unique characters.
We try to provide the children with lots of opportunities to develop their skills and interests, and as part of this, we are keen to recommence our clubs as we continue to open up our school community. After the October half term, school staff will run a wide variety of clubs for the children. Some of these clubs will take place during lunch time and some of these clubs will take place at the end of the school day. We do not charge for the activities the school run, although we might occasionally need to ask for a donation towards equipment or resources.
Not all clubs will run for the duration of the year. Some of the clubs that we have run previously are:
Card Making, Chess, Coding, Dance, Drama, Gardening, Handbells, Make-a-Difference, Origami, Science, Sketching and a Family Reading Club.
Alongside the school run clubs, we will also provide a Football Club run by Pompey in the Community. More information will be provided closer to the October half term.
Our children clearly enjoy the opportunities to participate in our clubs and we look forward to seeing them work together again.
Children from ‘Make a Difference’ Club serve a Cream Tea they have made to thank the kitchen staff for their hard work.
