Better provision of breakfast and after school clubs

The provision of  pre and after school care is patchy across schools and counties, especially for infant years, when there are no many activity clubs provided by the actual primary school. The lack of service is often exploited by external providers who charge expensive fees to cover 3 hours after school.

This system  places additional pressure on mothers, who are having to adjust working hours to accommodate school pick up, and ultimately it limits access to careers’ opportunities for women.  

All schools should be encouraged to offer this service in-house, at affordable rates.

Why the contribution is important

- Supports working mothers.

- Enhances career opportunities for women.
