Enrichment and After-School Clubs
After School Clubs, run by the school- Activity Clubs
Our enrichment offer of Activity Clubs will be confirmed each term*. In the autumn term we will wait for our children to settle in to school life first. We will wait for our School Team to be best placed to run additional activities, with their other role (and their own family) commitments. *We follow Trust advice and guidance regarding the running of additional school activities in light of the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic situation. Our priority is maintaining our main education offer.
Activity Clubs, run by the school, are designed to widen children’s experiences. In schools, for free provision, clubs are typically run under the goodwill and generosity of the school team. Sometimes a school may use an external provider and offer activity places on a pay per space or subsidised payment basis.
Process for booking- ensuring fairness for all:
An Activity Club will run for a sequence of 6 weeks and will be restricted in numbers, based on the risk assessment for supervision, type of activity and the individual needs of children in a cohort. Activity Clubs will be offered to all children via Forms booking. This enables all parents to receive a link by email at the same time to be able to easily access the Form to express preference. The school can then fairly allocate places based on the receipt of the request. Once a place on the club is confirmed, a paper offer form containing parental agreement will be sent home.
If an Activity Club is over-subscribed, a waiting list will be kept. Those children on the waiting list will be prioritised for a club when the next club sequence of 6 weeks runs.
Activity Clubs, run by the school, should not be relied on as childcare as, if the staff member running the club is absent from work for any reason on the day of the club, the club may need to be cancelled at short notice if another staff member is unable to step in to cover. We will expect punctual collection from the Activity Club, in the same way that we expect punctual collection at the end of the standard school day. Repeated late collection (beyond genuine emergency or a situation beyond all control), will result in the place on the Activity Club being removed.
If your child attends Go Beanies, the school and Go Beanies will organise safe handover of responsibility for your child. Please note that full Go Beanies sessions will need to be paid for, even if your child attends a school club for part of the after-school session.
