Acorns Breakfast and After-School Club

At Burlington we aim to provide a safe, secure and relaxed environment, offering a range of activities to reflect the interests of the children in our care. There will always be a selection of activities and resources available, including board games, construction toys, physical play, craft, cookery and reading.

Breakfast club is open from 7.30am weekdays during term time.

The After School club is open from 3.20pm until 6.30pm weekdays during term time. (Please note on school early-closure days, Acorns will close at 5.00 pm.)



Admission to the Acorns is for children who are 3 to 11 years old and is currently organised by the Infant school office.  Please click here to email for admission enquiries.  Children can join the club in the half term following their 3rd birthday. We use a waiting list system when the need arises. The waiting list will be operated on a first come-first served basis, with the exception of siblings who will have priority for the same days as a sibling already attending.

We require a completed set of registration forms for each child before they can attend the club. Re-enrolment for September is required at the end of the summer term although existing club users will be given priority.  We cannot keep a place open for your child unless you complete a new registration form each year.

Emergency contact details must be kept up to date at all times and it is the responsibility of the parent/carer to notify the school of any changes in details as soon as possible.

Acorns Booking Form



The current fees (from January 2020) are £5.00 per child per session for Breakfast Club and £13.00 per session for After School Club payable in advance.

This is payable for all booked sessions including when your child is sick, or on holiday (regardless of the amount of notice given). We do not charge for bank holidays and professional training days. When schools close early from 1.45pm (parents evening/end of term) the club will run from the end of the day until 5pm.

Parents are able to pay with electronic childcare vouchers and online via School Gateway. Please ensure that fees are paid promptly. Non-payment for more than one week may result in your place being terminated. If you are having difficulty paying fees, please speak in confidence to Navita (Acorn Administrator) via email to



Our menus are fully compliant with school food plan guidelines and are also mindful of any allergies/intolerances registered users may have. We recognise the importance of healthy nutrition for children delivered in a calm, friendly setting and request that food be consumed whilst sitting at the table.

Children are served breakfast from 7.30am and are offered a choice of wholegrain cereals, toast and milk or juice.  Fruit is also available.

Our caterers provide a full menu for the children’s evening meal. Fresh drinking water is available at all times. A hot meal will be served at 4.45pm. Please speak to the club if you pick up before 4.45pm and want your child to have a sandwich or similar instead.

My children leap out of bed in the mornings because they can’t wait to get to Acorns!

My son has asked if I could work extra days so that he could come to Acorns everyday!
