Activities

There is a selection of activities available each morning and after school including jigsaws, games, Lego, colouring, craft and outdoor play.  Films are also available for children to watch. Should pupils wish to read or complete homework, group leaders can facilitate this.

Booking

To book a place for your child, please complete and hand in to the school office a registration form in the half-term BEFORE you wish the child to start. Forms are available from the school office and on the school website.  The school office will then invoice you if there is a place available.

Payment in advance for each half term is required before attendance.

Safety Arrangements

When dropping your child off, please ensure that you hand them over to a member of club staff at the doorway and sign them in, unless you have provided a letter of authority in advance that they may arrive at school unattended. For the after school club, the year 3 pupils are collected from their classrooms at the end of the school day and the older pupils make their way to the club.  A register is taken on arrival at the club.

Upon collection you will be asked to sign the register to say that you have collected your child from club, this ensures that club staff know where all children are at all times.

Emergency Contact Details

It is essential that we have an up-to-date telephone/mobile number and an alternative emergency contact during the day in the event of your child being taken ill.

Please keep us informed of any changes to these contact details.

Accidents or Injuries

Should your child be injured or involved in an accident whilst attending a club, basic first aid treatment may be administered. The details will be recorded in an accident book. Should your child require emergency treatment, the staff will contact you immediately. However, they may need to act “in loco parentis” should they have to respond quickly. If an ambulance is required, a member of staff will accompany your child with their registration details should the parent/carer not be contactable.

Illness

Please do not send your child to the club if they are obviously unwell, or if you have reasonable doubts. Children suffering from diarrhoea or sickness must not return until 48 hours after their last bout. If your child becomes unwell during the club, a member of staff will contact you and ask you to come and collect them.

If your child will not be at a morning session due to illness, please inform us as soon as possible on 07518 138227.
