Out of School Club & Breakfast Club

At Castletown Primary School, we offer additional facilities for children, particularly to support working parents, from 7.45am until 5.45pm.

Breakfast Club

Breakfast club requests and payments should be paid to the office on a Friday for the following week.
Breakfast club does not open until 7.45am. There is no supervision of children by school staff before this time. Will parents please note that all children, from Reception to Y6, need to be brought into school through the main entrance by a responsible adult and be signed in by breakfast club staff. For obvious safeguarding reasons, children should not be coming in to breakfast club unaccompanied.
At Breakfast Club children are offered a substantial breakfast:

  • Juice, cereals and toast every day.

An additional choice every day from the following options:

  • Pancakes / waffles with syrup
  • Eggs on toast
  • Bagel with cream cheese
  • Sausage sandwiches
  • Cheese toasties
  • Yoghurts

After breakfast, KS2 children are taken outside, (weather permitting), and KS1 children have a range of activities to access in the hall.

Out of School Club (OOSC)

Before a child can stay at OOSC, parents must complete a registration form available from the main office.
Wherever possible, OOSC requests and payments should be brought into school on Monday morning for that week. Bookings need to be made on a weekly basis.
Office staff then compile an OOSC register for the week which is sent to all classes on a Monday afternoon. Teachers are then aware of exactly who will be staying at OOSC each day from their class.
Children staying for OOSC will be collected from their classrooms by a member of staff.
We are aware that unexpected circumstances can sometimes mean that parents need to ring during the week to request additional places however we must stress that this should only be in exceptional circumstances and should not be happening on a regular basis. When a phone call is received, office staff will go straight to the class teacher to inform them of the change to the OOSC register.
OOSC offers a variety of activities ie film nights, games nights, sporting activities and craft nights.


Breakfast club costs £2 per day

OOSC is charged at £2 per half hour or part thereof.
All payments should be in envelopes clearly marked with your child’s name, class and the days you require either breakfast club or OOSC provision. This helps to provide an audit trail on the rare occasion where payments may go missing. Children should not be bringing money into school on a daily basis to pay for these provisions. Payments can be left at the school office or can be sent into school with a child (please make sure the child is aware that they have an envelope with them to ensure it is handed in at the correct time – teachers will not look in book bags for payments).
