After School Club

After School Care Club

St Stephen’s School After School Care Club (ASC) aims to provide pupils of all ages with a safe and fun place to end their school day.

The club is informal and friendly. The club provides for both, quiet space (for reading, etc.) and a free play area, as well as more structured activities. Play, rather than education, is at the heart of the club.

There are two timing slots available:

Option 1 – 3:20pm-4:30pm

Option 2 – 3:20pm – 6pm

Any Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children booked into our ASC in the hall will be taken to the hall where they will be handed over to a member of staff. Children in Years 3 to 6 will be allowed to walk through the school to the club. The club starts with a register, so all children are quickly accounted for. 

Parents arriving to collect their child from ASC should go to the external hall door, accessible by the gate nearest the rectory.

Cost

ASC is £10.50 per session, which includes a choice of snacks and fun activities. The cost does not change depending on the time you arrive or if you choose not to have breakfast with us.

Registering with ASC

Bookings can only be accepted for children who have registered. Registration forms are available from the school office or the club. Completed forms should be returned to the office or the club prior to booking your child's first session.

Bookings/Payments

Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis to those that hand in their booking form and payment first. Please book a place with Parent Pay.

Parents also have the flexibility to book ad-hoc sessions, where places are available, but the ASC requires a minimum of 24 hours notice.

Payment is required at the time of booking via ParentPay.

Non-Attendance

It is vital you inform us if your child is not attending the club, including through illness.

Cancellations

If you wish to cancel a session your child is booked for please let us know as soon as you can, so that the places can be given to other children. Please note that refunds are only available if one week’s notice, in writing, to cancel a place has been given.

Staff

All members of staff are DBS-checked and hold appropriate qualifications in first aid, food hygiene, child and play work. In addition, at least one member of the school staff is always on site in case of emergency.

Communication

We aim for each child to be happy and comfortable at the breakfast club. You can help us by providing as much information as possible about their likes/dislikes on their registration form.

Any relevant information can be discussed briefly at pick-up. If you have any more detailed issues that you would like to discuss with club staff, then you can arrange a mutually convenient time for a telephone call or short meeting outside of club operation times.

If you have any concerns about the way the club is being operated, please raise them in the first instance, with the Headteacher.
