Please note these may differ from your school term dates.

Notification of attendance

All booked sessions will be charged regardless of attendance to cover the costs this entails, unless one half term’s notice is given. We would also like to remind parents and carers that if your child is coming for an extra session to the club, to also inform the school, so that your child’s teacher knows. In addition if your child will be absent from the club please be so kind as to inform us.

Price increase

Reminder, due to increased running costs we will be increasing all our existing fees by £1 from January 2018. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.


Here are a few reminders regarding fees etc.

  • We do require 1 half term’s notice for changes of dates in order to offer refunds/credit
  • Late fees will be charged @ £7 per child , per 15 minutes or part thereof, from 6pm
  • Our official closing time is 5.45pm
  • Payment of invoices are due two weeks from the invoice date or a late payment fee may be charged. Please feel free to discuss alternative payment arrangements with the club manager if this is not convenient.


Lost property

To help us reunite missing items of clothing and baggage which are left behind at the club, please could we ask parents to label them.

Personal property

Children do like to bring in their own toys etc. However we would ask that you let your children know that this is at their own risk. We cannot be responsible for any losses or damage that may occur.


We have an expectation that all children attending the club treat each other and staff with respect in their actions and language, especially during team sports and other competitive activities. We deal with all incidents that are brought to our attention and would like to thank parents for their support.

Trustee role

Finally we would like to encourage parents to volunteer as a trustee at the club to ensure the continued running of our sessions. Please feel free to speak to the manager regarding this role.
