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 by 2pm at the latest.


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 welcome our new parent trustee Nina Quarshie, who is taking over from Jamie Dervish and thank them both for volunteering to help and advise the club.
