After School Club
After School Club will be open from; 3.10pm – 6.00pm term time only. If the club is available outside of term times, you will be notified in writing and provided with any opportunity to pre-book sessions.
Collection and Departure
Children will be collected from their classrooms at the end of the school day, main reception for junior school children. Clubs finishing after the usual school time will be catered for with an additional collection from both the Infants and Junior School.
All staff will have relevant DBS checks and are First Aid trained. All members of the After School Club staff are active members of the Hadleigh Infants and Nursery School support staff.
Please inform us if your child is going to be absent. The club uses the following mobile number - 07393584126. This number is checked throughout the day and during the session.
The After School Club will operate within the same sickness policy as school, a copy of this is available to view on the website; alternatively a paper copy can be obtained from school.
At the end of each month, you will receive an invoice stating the amount owed for the previous month. Cheque or cash should then be put into a sealed envelope with the child/children’s name and the amount written on the front and returned to the school by the date given on the invoice. All cheques should be made payable to Hadleigh Infants and Nursery School. As with the school’s dinner money system, we will no longer be able to give any change, but the money will be carried forward to cover any future payments.
If you no longer require your child to attend the After School Club, where possible, please give at least two weeks’ notice, in writing. We would also ask that the club is informed of any sessions that will be missed due to illness, trips etc. Failure to do this could lead to you still being charged for the session.
The children will be offered water at all times. The snacks on offer will vary but are likely to include; filled wraps, sandwiches, fruit and vegetable sticks, crisps and biscuits. Please make sure that we are aware of any food allergies.
We ask that the children do not bring valuable equipment to the club, as we cannot be held responsible for breakages or loss. Please note that the use of electronic devices (including mobile phones) is not permitted whilst attending After School Club.
The staff at the After School Club will be happy to discuss any matters, relating to the club, concerning your child/ren with you and if desired a meeting can be arranged at a mutually convenient time. Most children settle well; however, should your child not settle after a reasonable period of time we may have to consider whether it is right for your child to continue attending. We will work closely with you at all times to ensure that your child/ren’s best interests are met whilst in After School Club
