The school has a breakfast club and After-School club provision (Cottesmore Little Ospreys Club) who run the clubs from 7:30am - 8:45 am and after school from 3:20pm - 5:30pm. 

If you are interested in using this facility, please book in advance with Mrs T Lang. It is a very popular club with our children and families and as a result we are finding spaces are at a premium.


To reduce the risk of accidents we now open our playground gates at 8:30am every morning. However, children will be unsupervised until 8:45am and so we ask the parents to ensure the children have parental supervision until the start of the school day. We also ask our families to not bring cars into the school car park at any time to minimise accidents and in case of an emergency.
