The Haven Breakfast & After School Club
Welcome to The Haven Breakfast & After School Club
Hale Academy manages its own wrap-around childcare provision. The Breakfast and After School Club operates during term-time for children attending Hale Academy in Reception to Year 6. The club is currently run from the KS1 building in the room next to the main hall. It consists of a cookery room and a classroom. The objective of the club is to provide a welcoming and fun wrap-around childcare environment. We aim to offer all our children stimulating activities to suit all ages and abilities, with links to learning taking place in school. Children have a wealth of options to choose from for both independent and group play. Typical activities include board games, puzzles, arts and crafts and sports. There is a learning zone in the club where children can complete homework or practise spellings or times tables. In dry weather we have use of the sports field, netball court and the KS1 playground.

Drop off & pick up procedures
With effect from Tuesday 20th April 2021, it will be possible for parents to enter the school ground to drop-off and pick up at The Haven.
At drop-off, a member of staff will be on the gate (as normal) at 7.30am. If you arrive later than this and no-one is at the gate, please press the buzzer labelled ‘The Haven’. We will then open the gate remotely for you to enter. Please follow the yellow marker lines on the ground up to the main hall door. Your child will help you the first time as they know the route well! A member of staff will be there to greet your child and mark them down on the register. You then walk back down to the gate, press the buzzer again and we will let you out remotely.
At pick-up, please follow the same procedure. A member of staff will release your child to you. All children must be accompanied at all times. Under no circumstances are children allowed to walk alone on the school grounds. Please remember to keep your distance and wear a face mask.
