Fairfield and Colneis Breakfast Club

In the current period of school closure we are unable to provide Breakfast Club/Wraparound Care.

The Early Birds Breakfast Club is run by Fairfield and Colneis schools as a self-funded, non-profit making organisation. The club is open to school-age children from both Fairfield and Colneis Schools and is held in the school hall at Fairfield Infant School during term time from 8 – 9am, Monday to Friday. It offers a range of age appropriate play activities and serves a nutritious breakfast each day.

Two members of staff involved in the running of the club organise a ‘walking bus’, and walk the Colneis children up to Colneis Junior School in time for the start of the school day. The Fairfield children join their classmates in time for registration.


It costs £3.75 per child, per a session. Children can attend for any number of sessions in the week. If your child is eligible for free school meals please contact Mrs Winton in the school office to discuss payment arrangements.

Payment Arrangements

We ask that Breakfast Club is paid in advance using Parentmail.  Your child’s breakfast club balance can be managed in the accounts section of your ParentMail app.

Please also be aware of the current additional restrictions for accessing after school provision in Tier 4.

In areas at tier 4, parents and carers can continue to access registered childcare as normal, or wraparound childcare and other out-of-school settings for children where this is:

  • provision specified in an education, health and care plan
  • necessary to allow parents/carers to work, seek work, attend a medical appointment, or undertake education or training
  • for the purposes of respite care, such as caring for a vulnerable child or young person
  • being used by home educating parents as part of existing arrangements for their child to receive a suitable full-time education
  • for the purposes of obtaining a regulated qualification, meeting the entry requirements for an education institution, or exams and assessments

In tier 4 areas, children should not be accessing out-of-school provision except for these purposes.
