The Rise and Shine Club

Rise and Shine Club                                                                                          

The Academy at St James is proud to be in partnership with Magic Breakfast, providing healthy breakfasts to our pupils so that they are settled and ready to learn.

Magic Breakfast provides The Academy at St James with nutritious breakfast food to ensure children start their school day in the best possible way. Breakfast gives children the energy needed for the busy school morning, enabling them to focus on their lessons.

Here at The Academy at St James we are committed to ensuring no child is too hungry to learn.

Our before school childcare, The Rise and Shine Club runs each morning from 7.30am in the school dining area and costs £2.00 a day, payable through PayPal.  Children will be collected from the hall doors at 7.30am.  There is a doorbell on the hall door (the side door) so you can bring your child at any time before 8.15 and your child will be able to attend, the cost is the same – £2.00 daily.

If your child doesn’t attend we do still provide bagels in the classroom as the bagels are free it’s the childcare you pay for.
