Key workers:

Due to the change in staff hours, children moving rooms and altering hours your child/ren key worker may have changed. New key worker letters are attached if applicable.


Hot lunches are £1.40 a day and with a dessert £1.90.
These are orderable on the day and the weekly menu is posted on the Brambles Facebook page every Friday (where possible).
From September 2019 lunches need to be paid weekly or daily. If lunches are not paid on time we will be unable to continue ordering hot meals for your child.


These sessions take place on a Wednesday morning, at the sports hall with a qualified teacher and ALL children are involved.
The pre-school children have an hour long session from 10.30-11.30 am and we ask for a £1.50 contribution towards each session your child attends. If your child does not attend Brambles on a Wednesday they are still able to take part and can be dropped to us at the sports hall.
All other children attend a half-hour session from 10-10.30 am and we ask for a £1 contribution towards each session your child attends.


Please ensure ALL children have spare clothes in a bag on their peg – including pants and socks. Can any borrowed Brambles clothes be returned as our cupboards are empty!


Due to the popularity of our ‘Grandparents Café’ we will be holding another café afternoon during the Autumn Term.
Thursday 10th October from 1.30-3.00 pm.
Family and friends are all welcome.
