Please find enclosed details of our extra-curricular clubs that are offered during the Summer Term at lunch time and after school.
We are delighted to be able to offer a wide variety of clubs and hope that you and your children will have pleasure in selecting the ones that appeal. Rather than charge an individual amount for each club session, there will be one charge of £28 for attending a club during seven weeks of the Summer term. The only exception to this is Cookery Club which is priced at £35 to cover the cost of ingredients. Monday clubs will only run for six sessions due to the Bank Holiday, and will therefore cost £24. Clubs will commence the week beginning 30th April and will finish the week beginning 7th July. Clubs will not run the week of 14th May due to SATs, or the week of 18th June due to parent consultation evenings. You will see the days and dates on which the club you are selecting is running and the charge takes into account that your child may not attend a session because of a residential / day trip or other unavoidable reason.
Numbers for clubs are limited and application should be made using the Parent Pay system on a first come first served basis and Parent Pay will be activating the clubs on our behalf. The activation will start at 5pm on Wednesday 25th April and may take up to 30 minutes until the process is complete. A few places may be reserved for parents that do not have access to a computer. If you need to apply for a place in this way please collect a paper application form from the office. Please note that application via paper form into the office, does not guarantee acceptance into any club. To allow as many children as possible to try a range of clubs, we would request that, in the first instance, you limit the number of clubs applied for to 3 per child. There will be open access to any remaining spaces on the afternoon of Friday 27th April. A minimum of 5 children is needed for a club to run.
In order not to disadvantage those parents wishing to pay by childcare vouchers, it will be necessary again to apply online in the same manner as everyone else. Please make your payment for your chosen club/s via credit or debit card to secure the space/s. Once we receive details of your childcare voucher payment, we will refund your original payment.
All after-school clubs finish at 4.30pm and your child will be taken to the Pink Library for collection. If you are not available to collect him/her from school at this time they will be booked into the After-School Care facility to ensure appropriate supervision and a fee will be payable.
The children really enjoy choosing from the extensive range of activities on offer and they can gain a great deal from them not only in terms of skills learned but also from mixing with children beyond their class and year group. Please take the time with your child to choose carefully as no refunds can be given in the event of you or your child deciding to discontinue attendance. We do hope your child will enjoy his or her chosen activities.
