After School Club


Please can you ensure that if you need to use our After School Club (reduced or full session), you follow the correct booking procedure so that we can organise sufficient staff to cover.


The full session (up to 6pm) can be booked until 12pm on the day, whilst the reduced session (up to 4.20pm) is open for bookings until 2.30pm. If you miss these booking deadlines, you MUST contact the school office as soon as possible to see if your child can still be accommodated. Please do not just assume that because your child has not been collected that they will automatically have an After School Club place.


All sessions are bookable via the School Gateway and as well as making payment, you must select which dates you wish for your child to attend. All available sessions for this academic year are already on the Gateway so you can book as far in advance as you wish. Registers for the After School Clubs are printed from the bookings page and any child who has not been booked on correctly will not be collected from their classroom and instead brought to the office. The end of the school day is extremely busy and valuable time is spent trying to get hold of parents to find out why their child has not been picked up – this could be avoided if correct processes were followed.


Can we also take this opportunity to stress that the latest any child should be picked up from our After School Club is 6pm. Recently we have had instances where children have not been collected until 6.15pm/6.30pm and this is not acceptable. Anyone who constantly turns up late to collect their child will no longer be able to use the After School Club facilities.


We thank you for your continued support.
