Dear Parents and Carers
Welcome to new parents and welcome back after the Summer break to our existing parents.
Fire drill and lockdown
This term alongside our termly fire drill we will be introducing a practice lockdown procedure just as a precaution to keep up to date with safeguarding methods.
Unfortunately, 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.
We will be hosting a cake sale week commencing 25th September for Macmillan coffee morning (official date Fri 30th September). Please feel free to purchase these treats when you come to collect your child to raise funds for this worthy cause.
Alex will also be taking part in a sponsored walk on 24th September for Isabel Hospice please visit his Justgiving page if you wish to donate. www.justgiving.com/fundraisingisabel-hospice-alessandro -morreale1990. Thank you
Last day of half term – Fri 20th October 2017
First day back – Mon 30th October 2017
Last day of Autumn term – Fri 15th December 2017

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.
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 @ £6 per child (£7 from Jan 2018), 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.
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.
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.
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.
