Breakfast Club

Our friendly and caring breakfast club takes place in our dining hall and is open to all children from Reception to Y6.

It opens at 8 o'clock and runs every day of the week. Delicious warm bagels are served everyday alongside a wide and plentiful range of cereals.

We charge a minimal £2 per child to cover childcare costs. 

Once children have eaten, the children are provided with supervised activities such as board games and construction materials until the start of the school day. Our breakfast club is extremely well attended and greatly appreciated by our parents and children.

After School Childcare

Our wonderful after school kids club runs every night until 6 o'clock.

Kids Club is based in the Children's Centre right next to our school car park so is easily accessible.

Children attending Kids Club are collected from class by the staff at the end of the day.

It has a secure entrance where visitors can be observed by staff before being allowed entry into the building.

The club is run by Mrs Lawson, Mrs Hunt, Mrs Patterson and Mrs Linn (our lunchtime supervisors), who are well known to our children.

The club offers welcoming, caring, safe, engaging and quality childcare. We encourage the children to take part in many activities ranging from art, board games, reading, physical activity, themed projects, construction and collaborative tasks. Children even go on hot chocolate picnics in our school grounds. The staff are very willing to support with homework tasks and reading.

Children are provided with a healthy snack and our older children are encouraged to help in the preparation of snacks to encourage important social skills and values.


Charges are based upon the amount of time your child will spend in Kids Club. There is a minimum charge of £5 for the first hour and then £2.50 is charged for each subsequent 1/2 hour block. There are no charges for any materials used during Kids Club.

SEN Provision

At any one time we have a wide range of children with very diverse needs. As a school we pride ourselves on ensuring that we do all we possibly can within the constraints of a mainstream setting to meet the needs of all children with specific special educational needs and disabilities.

At Shotton Primary School we see everyone as individuals, valuing their unique qualities. With this comes a vital requirement to meet their often diverse learning needs, ensuring that every child is equipped with the necessary skills, knowledge, understanding and personal qualities to positively follow the life that they choose.

Support in School for Children with SEND

At Shotton Primary School provision for all pupils is delivered according to an identified level of need. All pupils have the right to expect good to outstanding teaching from a range of highly skilled and qualified staff. Learning should be differentiated in class to meet wide ranging needs. This differentiation can involve diverse techniques; different expected outcomes or ways of recording or accessing information; multi-sensory approaches and learning which accounts for different learning styles. This should not be seen as an exhaustive list.

We pride ourselves on being a supportive school which endeavours to meet the diverse needs of all of our children.

How we identify, assess and review children with special educational needs.

Most children and young people in mainstream schools will have their special educational needs met through good classroom practice. This is called Quality First Teaching.

Early Identification of Need

In deciding whether to make special provision to support children’s special educational need, we:

  • Work in partnership with parents/carers, pupils
  • Consult with relevant external agencies
  • Use assessment tools & materials
  • Use observations
  • Use Short Notes
  • Other

SEN support

Where a special educational need is identified children will be placed on the SEN register and staff will work closely with parents and the child or young person to initiate an individualised SEN support plan. This follows a graduated process which takes the form of cycles of “Assess, Plan, Do, Review”.

At Shotton Primary School SEN support plans are reviewed in consultation with parents and children on a termly basis. School tracking systems are used to identify gaps in learning and to set appropriate targets for the child.

From the SEN support plan, provision is then adapted to support the child in meeting their targets on their plan.

Different children require different levels of support to achieve age related expectations, and we expect that parents/carers would work with us, alongside any other appropriate, external agencies.
