There will be various activities for your child to participate in.
Behaviour: Whilst children are at the club being cared for by our staff, they will be expected to follow the positive behaviour expectations below, which link to the school’s core values of fairness, respect, caring and responsibility. Bullying is not tolerated at all within the club and this will be dealt with in line with current school policy. Please ask staff to see the School’s anti-bullying policy for further information. Children must respect all other children and staff members, including visitors regardless of their age, gender, race, religion and abilities. Everyone at the club will be treated as an individual in order that their needs are met. Children are encouraged to inform a member of staff if they are unhappy about something so that this can be dealt with. Children are also encouraged to give staff ideas for activities or games that they would like to be involved in. This is to ensure that the staff are providing a wide range of fun, challenging and stimulating activities for all the children to enjoy. Parents are advised to inform staff at the club if their child has any special needs, dietary requirements, medical conditions or allergies which may affect a child’s behaviour. There is a section on the registration form for this information. All personal information is dealt with in the strictest confidence by all members of our staff.
Procedure for Dealing with Challenging Behaviour: Staff members are trained to deal with challenging behaviour. To promote positive behaviour within the club, rules and expectations are used. These rules and expectations are very important to ensure all children are aware of what behaviour is acceptable and what is not. The club will never exclude a child without trying to help the child first. There are many ways in which the club promote positive behaviour for all children:
Praising the children for good behaviour.
Talking to children
Implementing rules and expectations.
Recording unwanted behaviour and informing parents.
Time out sessions.
Working in partnership with parents and the school and organisations where appropriate.
Toys and Equipment: The club is aware that equipment will not last forever with lots of children using it, we encourage your child to respect the equipment and toys.
Our school does not provide childcare during the school holidays, however, if you require all year round provision, there are a number of local providers, such Noah's Park that offer full time holiday care for £15 per day. Please do your own research when choosing any childcare provider to ensure the quality of the provision they offer.
