Behaviour at the club
The school’s wraparound service operates in line with the school’s behaviour policy, which is available of the school website.
Caring for your child
Caring for your child is our top priority. As staff are employed by the school and only children from the school attend the wraparound, the club is acknowledged through the direct registration of the school through Ofsted. All staff are DBS checked and registered and staff have current food hygiene certificates.
At after school club we aim to give children a wide range of experiences by providing stimulating, fun activities. These include crafts and games. We will also encourage reading time and with direction from parents, time to catch up on homework and other areas of learning.
The wraparound service is covered through the school’s comprehensive insurance cover.
Property and belongings
The school will provide an extensive range of equipment suitable for children of all ages. It is not necessary or advisable for children to bring toys from home. Children’s comforts and toys of special interest are acceptable. Although we will endeavour to take care of any items brought in, we will not accept responsibility should any loss or damage occur and similarly, parents will be accountable for the damage of school equipment through misuse or negligence.
In the case of suspected abuse of children, it is our duty and legal requirement to report our concerns to Social Services immediately. Policies and procedures are in place to safeguard children. All staff are trained in Safeguarding and are aware of the “What to do” procedure. Our Safeguarding policy has contact details and procedures for Triage. We follow Cumbria Safeguarding Children Partnership guidelines.
We work in a multi-agency environment and we will seek advice from multi-agency professionals from time to time to ensure the quality of the childcare offered. If this is in relation to your child, we will contact you directly to seek consent prior to consultation.
Under no circumstances will a child be allowed to leave the after school club with anyone unknown to the staff, unless previously arranged by the parent or guardian. If parents make prior arrangements by telephone, school will require the name, address and telephone number of the nominated person.
