Our school recognises that availability of wrap around care is important for all of our working parents.
Here at Dalton St Mary’s care is available in the form of Breakfast Club, After School Club and alongside the 30 hour Government funded places for working parents parents who do not meet the criteria can request additional, paid Nursery places each afternoon (see below).
All wrap around care can be booked on a regular or casual basis, full information regarding bookings is available on ParentPay or from the School Office. If you are interested in securing any of our wrap around care please call in and speak with Mrs Irving in the School Office who will be happy to support you with this.
Dalton St Mary’s additional, paid Nursery places, Breakfast and After School Clubs have adopted, and operate within the parameters of, current school policy and documents.
Dalton St Mary’s Primary School has extensive and comprehensive polices that meet with current Government and Local Authority legislation.
All school policies are reviewed and revised by Staff and Governors and are available from the school office, upon request.
Breakfast Club is led by Mrs L Parkin supported by Mrs K Jackman.
The club is held in the school hall and is available from 7.30 – 8.55, Monday to Friday during term time.
Children are provided with a choice of healthy cereals, fruit, toast and juice, on occasions Mrs Parkin and the team make ‘special breakfasts’ which include choices such as pancakes and crumpets.
Children have access to games and craft activities during Breakfast Club. Breakfast is charged at £4.00 (7.30 start), £3.00 (8.00 start), £1.00 (8.30 drop off; Breakfast not included) per session. Sessions should be booked and paid for in advance using Parentpay apart from the 8.30 drop off where £1.00 should be paid on the morning of attendance.
After School Club is led by Mrs L Millington supported by Mrs N O’Reilly.
The club is generally held in the Nursery building and is available from 3:15 – 5.30, Monday to Friday during term time. On the last day of each term if the main school finishing time is earlier Mrs Millington will communicate with parents regarding After School Care.
Children have access to games and craft activities during After School Club, on fine days children have access to our outdoor facilities. A variety of healthy snacks, fruit and drinks are provided.

3:15 to 4:30 – £3.50
3:15 to 5:30 – £5.50
We are strict on timings, according to the school clock to avoid embarrassment on either side. This means, for example, if you collect your child at 4:35 or 4:40 you will be charged the fee up to 5:00pm
Dalton St Mary’s is able to offer 30 hour Government funded places in our Nursery for those parents who qualify for this provision.
Subject to availability, parents of children who have a 15 hour Government funded place in our Nursery (5 mornings or 5 afternoons) are able to request full days.
Children who attend full days can order a school lunch through Parentpay or bring a packed lunch from home. Nursery children are carefully supervised whilst eating their lunch in the main hall, 12:00 to 12:30, and then return to the Nursery building to begin their afternoon session.
Additional sessions are charged at £10.00 per session and are payable in advance or on the morning of attendance.
