Breakfast Club and After School Club

Westcott has a very popular breakfast club, with an average of 40/60 children attending every day. We recognise the importance of children having a nutritious start to the day and offer a wide range of cereals and toast. A selection of games and activities are also available for the children.

The cost of breakfast club is £2.50 per day, which covers the cost of food and staffing. Children in receipt of free school meals (means tested) are able to attend free of charge.

Bookings and Payments for breakfast club should be made on Parentpay.  www.parentpay.com

Westcott offers an after-school program where every child receives a drink and a snack. The program features a range of engaging activities, including LEGO, crafts, games, and role-playing.

The club operates from 3:15 PM to 5:15 PM and is priced at £4 per hour.
