Breakfast and After school club

Our breakfast and afterschool club will be a large, fun space where children can play with their friends, unwind and engage in lots of activities before and after the school day.

Breakfast club from 7.30am

Children will be offered a choice of breakfast and will have plenty of activities to do and time to play with their peers. It will be a calm and sociable start to their day. At 8:45am, members of staff will take the children to their classrooms ready for registration.

After school club 3:15pm – 6pm

Children will have a range of activities and toys to keep them engaged including arts and crafts, board games and a relaxing quiet area with books and story CDs. Children will be provided with a drink and a snack to keep them going until they are collected for home.

Hannah will take up her post in April, with the school opening next September. 

Her vision for the school is as follows: 

I am absolutely delighted to be opening Buckton Fields in September 2021. The vision for the school is based upon sustainability and being an eco-friendly school, utilising the local area to make a positive difference to the community. The vision will be supported by the Eco-Science curriculum, with reading reef, jungle and rainforest themed areas and ‘Buckton Fields’ Farmers,’ which will involve an allotment, gardening club and working with the local Farm Shop. I am very excited and looking forward to this new challenge.’
