Arrival and Departure

Before School Club

 

It is safe to drive onto the school premises from 7.20am to drop off your child.  Cars are not permitted to drop off children on the school premises after 7.45am

 

After School Club

 

Parents/Carers are required to make arrangements to ensure a safe journey home.  Please note: cars are not permitted onto the school premises before 4:45pm.

Late Collection of Children

 

It is expected that children will be collected promptly at the end of their booked session.  Any child that is collected later than five minutes beyond the end of their booked session will be charged for the next session. E.g. a child booked in from 4.00-5.00pm but collected at 5.10pm will be charged up to 6.00pm (the next charging period).

Any collection beyond 6.00pm will incur a late collection fee of £10.

The main school office opens from 8.30am-4.00pm for calls.  In the event of an emergency outside these hours please contact the school on 07541 329163.

Daily Routine

Breakfast

Breakfast is included in the price for children attending the 7:30-8:30am wraparound care session.

After school

A range of snacks and drinks are included in the price for children attending the 3:40-5:00pm and the 5:00-6:00pm sessions.

Afternoon Tea

Additional sandwiches, dessert and a drink can be pre-ordered at the time of booking and will be charged separately though ParentPay (£2.35)

Allocation of Places

Bookings should be made in advance (by 12.00pm the day before) so that the correct staff ratio can be ensured. The school will use our bio-metric system to register the booking and payment will be automatically deducted via Parent Pay.  We will strive to accommodate all requests; however we will allocate spare places on a first come first served basis.  Failure to ensure sufficient funds are available in ParentPay may result in a child’s place at the club being withdrawn. Child care vouchers cannot be accepted at Windsor Park Middle School.

 

Behaviour and Safety

The staff aim to provide a safe, stimulating and happy environment for all children. All sessions will be delivered in accordance with our school values and adhere to the School Behaviour Policy.  Parents will be informed immediately of any behavioural issues and incidents.  Following a warning, any continuation of unacceptable behaviour may result in a child being temporarily or permanently barred from the service.  Children that require one-to-one support in school to enable them to behave in a way that keeps themselves and others safe, cannot be accommodated in the club as we do not have the staffing capacity to cover for their needs.
