Acorn Breakfast and After School Club
At Burlington we aim to provide a safe, secure and relaxed environment, offering a range of activities to reflect the interests of the children in our care. There will always be a selection of activities and resources available, including board games, construction toys, physical play, craft, cookery and reading.
Breakfast club is open from 7.30am weekdays during term time.
The After School club is open from 3.20pm until 6.30pm weekdays during term time. (Please note on school early-closure days, Acorns will close at 5.00 pm.)
Our menus are fully compliant with school food plan guidelines and are also mindful of any allergies/intolerances registered users may have. We recognise the importance of healthy nutrition for children delivered in a calm, friendly setting and request that food be consumed whilst sitting at the table.
Children are served breakfast from 7.30am and are offered a choice of wholegrain cereals, toast and milk or juice. Fruit is also available.
Our caterers Pride are providing a full menu for the children’s evening meal. Fresh drinking water is available at all times. A hot meal will be served from 4.15 to 5pm. Please speak to the club if you pick up before 4.15pm and want your child to have a sandwich or similar instead.

Admission to the clubs is for children who are 4 to 11 years old and is currently organised by the Infant school office. Please click here to email the office for admission enquiries. Children can join the club in the half term following their 4th birthday. We use a waiting list system when the need arises. The waiting list will be operated on a first come-first served basis, with the exception of siblings who will have priority for the same days as a sibling already attending.
We require a completed set of registration forms for each child before they can attend the club. Re-enrolment for September is required at the end of the summer term although existing club users will be given priority. We cannot keep a place open for your child unless you complete a new registration form each year.
Emergency contact details must be kept up to date at all times and it is the responsibility of the parent/carer to notify the school of any changes in details as soon as possible.
The current fees are £4.50 per child per session for Breakfast Club and £12.50 per session for After School Club payable in advance.
This is payable for all booked sessions including when your child is sick, or on holiday (regardless of the amount of notice given). We do not charge for bank holidays and professional training days. When schools close early from 1.45pm (parents evening/end of term) the club will run from the end of the day until 5pm.
Parents are able to pay with electronic childcare vouchers and online via School Gateway. Please ensure that fees are paid promptly. Non-payment for more than one week may result in your place being terminated. If you are having difficulty paying fees, please speak in confidence to Miss Walker in the Infant office.
Recent Parent feedback
“On behalf of my daughter this is to thank the Acorn staff for their effort and manner in which they have made my daughter feel at home. She is happy and well cared for and she will even question my time of arrival when I am early to pick her up as she continues to the activities the staff put in place.
I would like to congratulate your efforts and, as South Africans will say Phambele, which is the expression used to strive for betterment and progress of the organisation/service. You have alleviated any fears and I am relaxed when I am not in her presence.”
