AFTER SCHOOL CLUB INFORMATION

Club Managers: Zena Clemmet,

Gurpreet Assi

Opening times are: Monday to Friday from 3.30 until 5.30 p.m. There are current no clubs during school holidays.

Cost is £3.00 up to 4.30 and £8.00 if staying until 5.30 and this includes providing them with their tea.

The Club is a fee paying provision that provides childcare provision for children who attend Causeway Green Primary School. The club caters for up to 24 children under 8 years of age and 24 over 8 years of age. We have a strict staff ratio of 1 staff member for every child under 8 and 1 staff member to every 10 children over 8. Regardless of number there are always 2 members of staff present at any one time.

The club aims to provide a more relaxed informal atmosphere where children have the opportunities to choose the activities they wish to take part in with the comfort for most children of being in a familiar environment.

Fees

You need to book your child’s in advance (see booking form attached). Once booked; you will still have to pay even if you do not choose to send them to their regular sessions. The fees are paid for on a Monday and you will be given a payment invoice outlining the cost of the week. Additional hours payment should be made on the following Monday. This we find is easier and helps our clients to keep on top of the payments. You can pay in advance if you prefer.

When booking regular sessions you are allowed to have 1 week’s holiday from the club per year at the reduced fee of £3.50 per session.

If you have any financial difficulties at any particular time do not hesitate to speak to the Club Manager and they will discuss the matter in confidence.

We appreciate that there can be occasional, extenuating circumstances where you may be late collecting your child; where possible we ask that you inform us by using club mobile no. 07960639228. If your child is collected late you will be charged an emergency amount of £5.00 increasing by £5.00 per every 15 minutes that passes after the session ends.

We offer emergency cover for those parents who unexpectedly cannot collect their child at the end of the school day, the cost of this is £10 and is payable on the same evening of collection or upon receipt of an invoice issued.

Collection of children

For the safety of your child it is necessary that you complete the form stating who will be collecting your child from the club. If it is not a parent, please provide us with a photograph of the person who will be collecting them and select a password that will be kept with your child’s confidential records. We run a strict policy whereby we will not allow children to be collected by anyone who has not been given written permission prior to collecting them even if they are a relative.

If in an emergency situation, whereby no one previously identified can collect your child then you need to contact a member of the club staff via the club mobile, giving a name and description and details of that person and they need to bring proof of identification. You need to tell the person the password which will be asked for when they arrive.

Documentation

Prior to your child starting the club you need to complete the following documentation.

  • Agreement to abide by the terms and conditions in this information pack
  • Consent for emergency treatment
  • Child’s details form
  • Form stating whether you give permission for your child to have their photograph taken.

It is your responsibility to read all the documentation and complete all forms. If you do not complete the form we will assume we have your consent to take photographs and sometimes video them at play. Photographs of your child will be kept as evidence of the activities they have taken part in and used for display purposes.

Please speak to a member of staff if you have any difficulties completing the documentation and they will be glad to help you. However your child cannot attend the club without all the relevant documentation being completed.

Failure to collect your child at the designated time may result in the school following their Non-Collection of children policy (copy available). This could lead to police or social services intervention.

Complaints Procedure

We aim to provide the highest quality childcare provision for all children. We aim to offer welcome to each individual and family and to provide a warm caring environment within which all children can learn and develop as they play.

We believe children and parents are entitled to expect courtesy and prompt careful attention to their needs and wishes. Our intention is to work in partnership with parents and the community generally and we welcome suggestions on how to improve our group at any time. Many concerns can be resolved quickly by an informal approach to the appropriate member of staff. If this does not achieve the desire results, the following procedures should be used.

How to complain:

  • A parent who is uneasy about any aspect of the group’s provision should first of all talk over any worries and anxieties with the after school club managers.
  • If this does not have a satisfactory outcome within a couple of weeks, or if the problem recurs, the parents should make an appointment to discuss their concerns with the headteacher.

Rules

We expect all children and adults to be kind and considerate to each other and treat people as a friend, thinking of both the safety and needs of themselves and others.

Everyone needs to take responsibility for their own actions. The club will not accept behaviour that is dangerous, or that affects the children’s or adult’s physical, mental or emotional well-being. This includes fighting, swearing, hitting others, throwing or damaging equipment or belongings and teasing or buying.

Bullying will not be tolerated; it will be dealt with severely. The following steps will be taken:

Step 1 – The child/children will be spoken to and their actions discussed and resolution will be made.

Step 2 – The child will be sat out for a short period of time and their parents will be notified and this will count as a verbal warning.

Step 3 – A writing warning will be issued

Step 4 – If the matter cannot be resolved the child will be excluded for a session or longer depending on the incidence.

Step 5 - The Club will be forced to withdraw the facility. The Club however will endeavour to work with parents so that this action will not be necessary.

You can obtain a copy of the Behaviour or Anti-bullying policies at a small cost at any time or you can log on to our school website to view the policies

We will ensure, your child is safe, that the level of supervision is suitable, that we maintain the staff ratio and will provide qualified staff.
