Before and After School Clubs

Temple Mill runs a Breakfast Club and After School Club for our working parents. Breakfast Club begins at 7.30am and runs until the start of school. After School Club runs from the end of school until 4.30pm or 5.30pm. For more information on this, please click here.


We believe uniform to be an important part of the ethos of the school and we urge parents to support us in this. All clothing, including footwear, should be marked clearly with the child's name.  

We keep a collection of donated Pre-Loved Uniform in school. For each item, a suggested donation of £1 to our school fund is appreciated. You can drop in to school to see if we have what you need or you can email the office to request particular items and sizes and we will try to get these ready for you to collect. The Pre-Loved uniform will also be displayed during events such as Parent Consultation Evenings. 

Although items with the school logo on are available, they are not a compulsory part of our uniform.
