Frequently Asked Questions:
We ask all parents to start by completing a bookings form (either term time or holidays -one each per child) . This indicates what service you require on what days and sessions you are requesting. On receipt our Bookings Officer will review availability and contact you and advise you of what spaces we can provide.
Where spaces become limited we operate a waiting list and have an admissions policy which we operate to assist us allocating places in the fairest way. Once your child’s space has been confirmed then we require completion of a registration form – together with relevant contact/emergency and GP details, as well as your payment or payment details.
Children from other schools are welcome to attend the club during both term time and in the holidays, but we do not have any facilities to arrange transport between schools. All children need to be signed into the club by a relevant parent or carer at the start /end of their session.
