After School Club: Update

Thank you to everyone who returned the slips regarding interest in the after school club.  This would provide our school with excellent wrap-a-round care with Breakfast Club from 8am to the after school club finishing at 6pm.

This After School Club will operate differently to our current clubs which focus on a particular activity and finish at 4pm. Our new club would run alongside the activity clubs providing childcare from 3pm – 6pm. Throughout this time children will have the opportunity to take part in different activities, complete homework, have a snack (toast, sandwich, biscuit, drink) under careful supervision.

The After School Club will run from the Children’s Centre.  Three members of staff have been employed to run the club: Mr Ogasia, Miss Senior and Miss Hacking. They all have significant experience of working with children and will provide excellent provision for your child.

The cost of the after school club will be £9.00 per session. This will be paid through Parent Pay. It will be available Monday to Friday in term time from 3pm to 6pm. Please collect your child from the Children’s Centre.

If your child wishes to take part in an activity club (eg netball) after school, they would go there first and then join the After School Club at 4pm. A member of the After School Club staff will accompany your child between clubs. You would then pay £3.00 for the activity club and £6.00 for the after school club. Therefore you would still pay £9.00, but it would be split over two different Parent Pay accounts. All payments for the After School Club must be received before your child can attend the Club for that week.

You will be asked to make a weekly commitment which must be paid for even if your child does not attend. This will guarantee your child a place. However, you can add extra sessions as long as there is space available.

In order to book your child into the After School Club for the first week (w/b 14th November) please pick up a booking form from the school office or download the form below and return it by Wednesday 9th November. After this week you will need to book by a Wednesday for the following week and a booking system will be available at the After School Club (not the school office).

If you have any further questions, please contact school.

Yours sincerely, Miss J. Barker
