We offer a free breakfast for pupils each school day.
Funded by the Welsh Government, Breakfast Club is intended specifically to ensure that every child can start their learning day with a good breakfast inside them. On that basis we are unable to accept children who have already eaten breakfast at home and we will insist that children eat breakfast in school. However Breakfast Club is not means tested and all children are welcome to attend breakfast club for breakfast.
FREE Breakfast is available to all pupils from 8.30am each morning.
Pupils may also attend between 8-8.30am for a charge of £1 per day.
If you want your child to attend the childcare session for all or any part of 8-8.30am you must register them AND pay for the session via Parentpay by midnight on the previous day. Children not on this register will not be admitted and will be kept safe in a covered area within the internal perimeter fence. We do not accept late bookings or cash on the door. Please ensure that your child is never on the school site unsupervised.
We are unable to accept children into Breakfast Club after 8.40am and children are not able to enter the building before 8am.
You can download a registration form below or obtain one from the school office. Once registered, there's no need to pre-book, children can attend as and when required.

*Please note that while After School Club has over 110 places every day, the club cannot guarantee a place for your child. A waiting list is in operation for busy days and new Reception parents are advised to contact Mathern Day Nursery to book a place soon after being awarded a space at The Dell. The school or MDN have no liability for children who are not booked in to After School Club. Parents are responsible for their child's childcare arrangements every day from 3.30pm, the end of the statutory school day. There is no other childcare provision at school after 3.30pm.
Teacher, Parent and Externally Led Clubs
We're able to offer a wide range of school clubs to pupils during and at the end of the school day. Most of these clubs are free of charge while some, those led by outside groups, sometimes have a fee attached. The Club List for this term is attached on the left. PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR CHILD IS COLLECTED PROMPTLY FROM ANY AFTER SCHOOL CLUB TO AVOID THEIR PLACE BEING WITHDRAWN.
