Primary Schools are now required to publish alongside their Performance information a list of their childcare provision making it easier for parents to know what is available.
Etherley Lane Primary School offers a full range of childcare provision – see below:
Children who eat breakfast concentrate and perform better during the morning than children who skip breakfast. At Etherley Lane children can arrive at school anytime after 8am for a healthy breakfast provided by our Breakfast Club team at a cost of £1.50 per session. The Breakfast Club offers at least one activity in addition to breakfast. Parents are welcome to drop off their child between 8.00am- 8.30am. If entitled to Free School Meals, we offer a free breakfast – proof of entitlement must be brought to the school office.

Extra- Curricular Activities – After School
Parents are sign posted to after school provision off site, if parents so wish then children are collected from the main entrance and handed over to a responsible adult who has a register of who is going to which after school provider.
The school also provides after school clubs, mostly free of charge. These extra-curricular opportunities help to enrich the curriculum. Recent extra-curricular clubs have included:
- SATs Revision
Some after school clubs also involve parents. These have included: Cooking, Learning Outdoors, Nature Trail, The Fisch Programme.
Information on extra-curricular clubs is sent in the weekly newsletter or by letter.
