Please note that under the government guidelines we have had to make some temporary changes to SMILES club until COVID-19 restrictions are lifted:
is now open to children in Infant School and Junior children in Year 3 and 4. The children are separated into their Year Group bubbles and sessions are taking place within their Year Group area. Years 3 and 4 will be in a separate area. Unfortunately we are unable to offer all of the usual breakfast choices whilst operating on this basis.
AFTER SCHOOL CLUB is open to children from across the Telford Infant and Junior Schools. The Infant School children remain in their bubbles as per Breakfast Club while the Junior children make use of the rooms the club rents on the Junior School site, split into the 4 Year Groups.
Breakfast Club is held in our school hall and is available to:
Telford Infant school pupils
Telford Junior School pupils in years 3 and 4

 Drop off: from 7.45am at the main SMILES door at Telford Infant School. Please use the school pedestrian gate to access the school as the Junior School gates are not open until 8.45am.
Children are taken by our playworkers either to their Infant School classroom or directly to the Junior School for the start of the school day at 8.55am.
Children enjoy a healthy choice of toast, crumpets, muffins, cereals and a variety of fresh fruits. We are a nut free school and children with allergies are fully catered for.
After School Club is available to all pupils attending Telford Infant and Junior Schools. Pupils are divided into separate rooms depending on their age group but do have the opportunity to mix outside when the weather is fine should they wish to.

After School Club is held in the main Infant School building and we also hire 2 rooms on the Junior School site.
Infant School children are collected by our Playworkers from their classrooms at 3.20pm.
