Advance Bookings – You will be able to book up to 100 days in advance.
Payment – Your child’s account must be in credit to make a booking. The session charge will only be deducted once the session has taken place. If a session is booked and there are no funds in your account, you will be sent a ParentPay warning to add funds.
If your child is ill or you wish to change a session on the day it is due to take place, these changes will be made by school and you will not be charged, but please let the school office know in plenty of time.
Cut off times for booking:
Before School Club – 3:00pm the day before
After School Club – 12 Noon on the day of the club.
We will do our best to accommodate any last-minute, emergency bookings on the day, but please ensure that you have received confirmation from the school that it has been actioned as the school office is not manned all day.
The clubs are designed to provide a safe and stimulating play environment for all, with safety and enjoyment of equal value. As a result, all children will be expected to follow and abide by the school behaviour policy, as they do during the school day. Staff will respond to and report behavioural incidents in the same way.
There is an expectation that parents will collect their child/ren from the After School Club punctually at the time they have booked. Should a parent be late 3 times in a half-term a late collection fee will be charged. Parents should collect their children from the Infant classroom door under the canopy.
