Extended Services

We have been working on improving our Extended Services provision at Glenbrook Primary School. This means some changes have been made to our Breakfast Club, After School Clubs and After School Care.

At Glenbrook Primary School it is our aim to provide a reliable and consistent service in a happy, secure and stimulating environment for all our children.

Our new offer provides a Breakfast Club 5 days a week, a variety of After School Clubs until 4.30pm  and After School Care until 6pm.

Our team of experienced school staff combined with external providers, plan a variety of activities which your child can choose to take part in. These include physical, creative, cultural and imaginative activities.

After School Care

At Glenbrook Primary School our After School Care provision is centred around working in partnership with the children to offer activities that they are interested in. We promote responsibility and allow children to make choices about their provision on a daily basis. We support our children to access a varied range of fun and engaging activities, ensuring that all activities are age appropriate. These activities are a variety of structured and unstructured play opportunities, and take place both indoors and outdoors. There is always the option of quiet reading or independent play opportunities.

Once the school day finishes at 3.15pm, students are escorted to a central meeting place where they are collected by the after school team.

Each session begins with registration, after which the students begin their activities.

Mid way through the session we provide children with a meal. This is a cold tea and include a selection of wraps, sandwiches, baguettes, salad, fruit and smoothies.

All meals are provided by the school caterers, Harrisons, who cater for all special dietary requirements.

Times 3.15—5.45pm daily

Please note we do not operate on the very last day of term when school closes at 2pm.

Fees £6 per child per day

  • Year 5 Residential Trip 2017

    Year 5 Residential Trip 2017 Day 1 What a fantastic start to our trip! The coach journey was excellent and it was a real adventure to be in a coach, on a train whilst under the sea! Our teachers were so well organised that we were able to take advantage of an earlier train which meant we could have more time in France. We arrived in Boulogne and were thrilled to be able to get off the coach and stretch our legs. Once off the coach, we went to an adventure playground to have our lunch and a play before attending The Nausica Sea Life Centre. The Sea Life Centre was absolutely amazing. We saw all sorts of wonderful creatures including sea horses, sharks, jelly fish and even a dancing seal that AJ named Jeff. Our adults were really impressed with us because the staff within the Sea life Centre were commenting on how well behaved we were and the kind manners we showed. After all of the excitement we were secretly happy to be heading towards our final destination. When the coach pulled up outside our accommodation, the bus erupted with a loud roar of "yay", "wow", "look at our mansion!". After dinner, we had a range of exciting evening activities. Our group did climbing. We enjoyed cheering each other on and challenging each other to reach past our highest climbing point. Written by Glenbrook and Fenstanton children in Group A. Day 2 On day two we went to visit Wellington Quarry in Arras. We went through the tunnel that the French, British and the Kiwis (aka the people from New Zealand) built. After we went to a famous battlefield and looked at the German and British trenches. We then went to The Vimy Ridge Memorial, learning about all the missing Canadian Soldiers. Later we went to a German cemetery and looked at the differences between the German soldier cemetery and the typical soldier cemetery. The difference is that the German soldiers cross had to be grey because of the guilt of starting the war and causing so much pain. Written by Oren & Niyah Y5 Hummingbird Class Day 3 We went to the picturesque city of Rouen, where we visited one of the many Notre Dame's in France. Notre Dame means ‘Our lady’. We visited the cathedral and looked and discussed it’s decorative appearance. We loved looking and learning about the stained glass windows and how they had to be carefully reconstructed after the city was bombed. In 1999 the cathedral’s spire fell and damaged the roof. Inside you could see where parts of the roof had to be replaced. In addition to the cathedral, we learned a lot about Joan of Arc. She believed that she received a message from God to lead the French to victory! Joan of Arc was involved in a famous part of history which is referred to as "The Hundred Years' War". At the young age of 19, Joan of Arc was burned at the stake by the English. Later, we had an opportunity to buy some souvenirs to remember the special city of Rouen. Written by Anna-Nicole from Y5 Chaffinch Class, Glenbrook and Shanai from Y5 Kestrel Class, Fenstanton
