School Clubs (Separate to childcare option)

SPRING TERM 2023

 

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 £3.25 per hour per session Payments for these clubs should be made via the Scopay cashless website or smartphone App, accessible to all parents (Once registered with a link code). From this term. Due to a change in HR Law 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 Miss Moore 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.

 

The cost for the wrap around childcare (breakfast & tea-Time Tigers) offer is in line with chargeable club costs. 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 directly on childcare@birch.essex.sch.uk 

 

 

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