Introduction

Welcome to ‘St. Michael’s Wrap’ extra hours club. The club will provide breakfast and after school sessions for children from Nursery to Year 6.

The club will be an extension of the school and will reflect the school’s aims and ethos. The Breakfast club will be housed within our Nursery building whilst the after school club will continue to be run within the school.

Children will have the opportunity to relax, do homework, join in with indoor and outdoor activities, play and have fun.

Parents will be able to relax in the knowledge that their children are safe and well cared for.

Dates of Closure

The breakfast and after school club will be open during term-time only starting from Wednesday 6th September 2017. Please ask the school office for a calendar with the holiday dates. Cool Kids will continue to offer their holiday club for the school, based at St. Monica’s (for more information please contact Cool Kids directly on 07720 053601).

  • After school Club – bookings made after 2.30pm the previous day

Arrival without a booking

*Arrival without a booking is not always possible due to staffing ratios and space. In this instance you are at risk of your child not being able to stay.

If a child is expecting to be in the after school club and we haven’t received a booking in advance, we will contact the parent in the first instance. If we are unable to contact the parent, we will admit the child to the club and make the following charges:-

If your child arrives at club without a booking a charge of £5 per child, per session will be made in addition to the session fee. This charge will not be removed unless parents/carers can show written confirmation from school* that they already had a firm booking for the session.

*written confirmation can be in the form of a text, email or note from staff in the handover diary that is used by club staff and the St Michaels-Wrap administrator (these notes are made on the day that the change was requested).

Changes and Cancellation

Cancellation can be made at any time but credit will only be offered if the required notice is given. To obtain a credit for a session, cancellation must be received in writing 1 week (7 days) before the session to be cancelled.

Credits will not be offered in any other circumstance, including illness.

Credits will be offered in the form of another club session. The cash will not normally be refunded.

Changes to bookings may be accommodated at the discretion of the ASC Manager, subject to availability and the notice period listed above.

Payments can be made by the following means:

  • Through Parentpay in advance of ASC sessions
  • Cash/Cheque- Only in emergencies.

Payment Deadlines

Payments can be made at any time via Parentpay. There will be two payment items set up on Parent Pay, ie – A Breakfast Club payment item and an After School Club payment item.

The school office will be able to print payment details and pass these to the Club Manager in order for her to reconcile sessions booked with the payment received.

Payments must be made as sessions are booked or at least by two days before the session or additional charges will be made, (see above). Payments must be made in advance and children will not be able to use the club unless payments for previous sessions have all been paid in full.

Debt on your account is not permitted. Debt will result in your child’s place being withdrawn immediately. Places will not be held during this period and may be offered to someone else. Therefore debt on your account will result in the loss of your child’s place.

Emergency/Parent contact details

Please complete the form on the reverse of the booking form to provide us with details and ensure you contact us if anything changes. The records for the club are separate to the school records so forms must still be completed.

Arrival/Pick up

You will be required to provide a password for the purposes of pick up (on the booking form). This will be required for anyone picking your child up from after school club. If they are unable to provide the password we will need to call you to confirm their identity and to obtain your permission.

Children who attend the Wrap Club must be collected by a responsible person aged 16 years or over.

Please note that the car park is for staff and visitors only. You must not use the car park for dropping off or collecting children from the clubs.
