School Clubs (Separate to childcare option)

BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL CLUBS - AUTUMN TERM 2024

 

We expect all children attending clubs to be polite and courteous to staff. If a child continually does not attend or there is a behaviour issue at a club they may lose their place. Please note that all school run club places are filled on a first come, first served basis.

 

CLUB COSTS

 

Some clubs run by school staff members cost £5.00 per hour per session Payments for these clubs should be made via the Scopay cashless website or smartphone App, accessible to all parents (Once a new admission is then registered by a parent with a link code).  Due to a change in HR Law in a previous academic year, any members of staff running clubs now  have to be contracted to do so, and to cover that confirmed labour cost the school now requires full payment for a half term of clubs ahead to book your child's place please. If you have any difficulties financially please speak to Mrs May (Headteacher) directly. Any information you disclose is treated confidentially. Any parent with children who are registered for pupil premium funding have had a credit applied to allow you to book your child into any chargeable clubs without the need to pay. Please contact the school office if you need assistance.

 

A child may attend a club and then go on to the wrap around childcare option for the second hour after school if required. Please book your childcare places via the Scopay app and email Mrs Christopherson (Wrap around childcare lead person)  directly on childcare@birch.essex.sch.uk. Before school Breakfast club costs £5.75 for the session. After school childcare is known as our Tea-Time Tigers club. This costs £5 per hour. Parents may book their child into one hour (3.15-4.15pm) or two hours (4.15-5.15pm ). Wherever possible we ask that parents book childcare prior to the day/week required. Parents are not able to book via the app on the day. Of course, if an on the day arrangement needs to be made or you would like to add your child on the day you need to please telephone the school. Refunds will not be given for any cancellation of your child's booked space on the day as staffing will already have been planned. Thank you

 

 

Please note that ALL club leaders have been DBS checked prior to the club being arranged
