Due to the success of the afterschool activity clubs this half term we have planned a new exciting programme that your children can participate in throughout next half term. This is in addition to our Toast and After School Club.
We want all children to be able to enjoy the extra-curricular opportunities on offer, therefore, there will be no charge for the clubs that will be run by our teachers or our specialist teacher Mrs Lal.
This term the extra- curricular activity clubs will be starting on Monday 30th October 2017. The children who already attend Ipad (Mr Ankers), Art (Miss Elcome), Chess (Mr Grealis) and Homework (Miss Price) will still have a place in these clubs until the 8th December.
Mrs Lal has four new clubs available for children from Year 1-6 this half term. In order to sign your child up for new clubs we are now using a new online system. The system allows you to choose from the range of clubs available and fill in all your details confidentially.
How to sign up using the new online portal:
To sign your child up for one of the available clubs please click on the link below. This link will take you to your own confidential portal to choose any relevant clubs that are on offer to your child. You will be able to sign your child up to a maximum of 2 clubs and also state their club preference on the website (1st or 2nd choice). If oversubscribed, names will be chosen at random and all children will be notified if they have received a place in the available clubs.
The closing date to sign your child up for clubs next half term is Wednesday 18th October.
If your child already attends the After School Club which operates daily at Sacred Heart, they are welcome to apply for a place in an extra-curricular activity provided by the school. If successful in being allocated a place in the activity, they can attend the activity with the cost being included as part of their After School Club fee ie. at no extra cost. The teachers in charge of the extra-curricular activity will ensure that the children are safely transferred to the care of the After School Club, following the activity. Please note that this arrangement applies only to the extra-curricular clubs provided by our staff, including Mrs Lal and listed in this letter. The additional charges for privately provided activities will apply.
From October half term to February half term all children must be collected by an adult as the nights are darker in these months. All children must be collected promptly at 4:30pm by an adult; failure to do so will result in your child losing their place.
If your child later decides that they no longer wish to attend the extra-curricular club, or if they are not attending due to you collecting them at 3:30pm for any reason, please send a written note into the school office. Failure to attend for 3 consecutive weeks will result in your child losing their place in the club (unless exceptional circumstances for your child’s absence are agreed in writing with the activity leader).
