Autumn Clubs Letter
We are really excited about our after school clubs programme for the Autumn term. This is open to years 1,2,3 this term. Following parent feedback, we have increased the number of clubs available. As the age range of our children grows, we have started to provide some clubs for the older and younger year groups. After Christmas we will invite reception children as well. Our list of after school clubs for the Autumn term is below:
Each club costs £35 for the whole term. Similar to last year, payment and signup will be through Parent Pay. The option to sign up and pay a £5 deposit for a club will appear on your account and the deposit must be paid to book the club. This will ‘go live’ on Friday 19th July. Places will be allocated to those that sign up first. Places are limited to 18 children per club, except for Football club which has 20 spaces. Please sign up before Monday 9th September 2019 to avoid disappointment. All clubs will start w/c 16th September 2019
After children have signed up, we will request the remaining payment of £30 through Parent Pay and this can be paid in instalments. If there are any places remaining, you can sign up at a reduced rate mid-way through the term.
Hillary Club: we have received funding to provide further enrichment opportunities through tuition on a Wednesday. Details of invited children will be given on progress review day. To ensure all children can access this free support, the bus will leave at 4pm and drop off at 4:20pm every Wednesday from 18th September. All children who take the bus on a Wednesday will be provided with this free support. No sign up will be required for this.
If you need to activate your parent pay account, please speak to reception and we can provide login details again. Please ensure you have paid any current outstanding balances on your account to be able to sign up your child for clubs next term.
We do not wish to deny any child from taking part in any club due to financial reasons so please speak to your child’s form tutor or myself if you have any concerns with the above. If you are eligible for Pupil Premium we will subsidise the cost of one club for this autumn term by £30. This means you will need to pay the £5 deposit and can sign up as described via Parent Pay
Children will be learning skills that will build on each other each week so they need to commit to coming for a term. Once your child has been signed up for the term, you cannot cancel their place. We cannot provide any refund if your child is unable to attend a session due to illness, absence or a session has to be cancelled.
Please ensure your child is picked up on time at 4:00pm from the school.
These are more unstructured settings, can be a competitive environment and are often delivered by specialist adults outside of the One Degree team. As a result, the academy reserves the right to refuse or remove a child’s access to after school clubs. Children must follow the expectations of the instructor during all of the above sessions to ensure that they can continue to participate.
By signing up for a club on Parent Pay, you are agreeing for your child to take part in the activity and suffers from no medical conditions that may prevent them from taking part. Please acknowledge this when you sign up on Parent Pay using the notes box.
Please remember that spaces are on a ‘first come first served’ basis.
