FUN KIDS CLUB
Dunmore's Breakfast and After School Club, known as the Fun Kid's Club (FKC) is a very popular childcare service available for any Dunmore pupil to attend (including Nursery pupils) during school term time.
Children who are not fully toilet trained (still wearing nappies/pull ups) are not normally able to attend FKC unless the circumstances are exceptional.
If you would like your child to start attending FKC, please make sure you complete and return a Permissions Form (below) in advance.
The club provides children with flexible opportunities for play, activities and relaxation in a safe and friendly environment. The emphasis is on leisure activities rather than an extension of the normal school day. The club is managed by Nicola Dixey and a team of staff all employed by the school.
There are two sessions for both the Breakfast and After School Clubs -
FKC Price Increases
We have been reviewing our running costs and charges for FKC and, after consultation with our governors, we will be increasing the session costs from September 2023. The last price increase was in 2017 and, as you can imagine, our running costs were much lower than at present. The new charges will be:
Breakfast Club times and charges per session from September 2023:
7.45am to school start - (with breakfast) £5.30
8.15am to school start - £2.65
After School Club times and charges per session from September 2023:
School end - 4.30pm - £6.60 (£5.60 for other siblings attending same session)
School end - 5.45pm - £10.60 (£9.60 for other siblings attending same session)
Late Booking facility
Following requests from parents asking if we could be more flexible with FKC bookings, we are pleased to say that we will be offering 'late bookings', starting after the May half-term holiday. Online bookings and amendments will remain the same with 8 days advance notice required but, if you need your child to attend FKC at shorter notice and we have space, we may be able to book them in for you. This does not apply to late cancellations, unless the circumstances are exceptional. Please note that this is only available for parents/carers whose children already attend FKC and will be on a 'first come, first served' basis.
To request sessions we ask you to email Tina Law - firstname.lastname@example.org - up to 2pm the day before. As part of this change, we do ask that you agree to pay for any sessions booked within 2 days.
FKC usually run holiday activity weeks during the first week of the Easter Holidays, and the first two weeks of the Summer Holidays. Unfortunately we are not able to offer the holidays clubs to nursery children as some activities take place off site.
The Easter Club usually runs for the first week of the Easter holidays.
The Summer Club usually runs for the first two weeks of the Summer Holidays.
Holiday Club charges are:
All Day (8.30am - 5.30pm) - £35.00
Half-day (8.30am - 1.00pm or 1.00pm - 5.30pm) - £20.00

Please note that we are not able to cancel, or swap sessions, with less than 8 days notice, if your child is unable to attend for any reason, unless the circumstances are exceptional.
