After School Club

Thank you very much for your continued support of the After School Clubs. As you are aware the before and after school provision is a valued part of life at Singlegate Primary School. Both clubs are incredibly popular and heavily subscribed, with over 100 children on our attendance register.

Booking procedures:

Children can be booked into the clubs on an annual basis to secure their place. We operate on a first come, first served basis. Booking forms are available both via the school office and/or via the school website. If you wish to complete the form electronically it can be downloaded as a PDF file and emailed directly to Emma at esamboer@singlegate.merton.sch.uk . This will ensure that all forms arrive securely. Emma will continue to be responsible for all bookings. Booking forms for after the half term holiday are now available to allow for bookings up until the end of July and into the new academic year if desired.

It is worth booking well in advance to avoid disappointment. Any bookings will only be secured with payment of the total fee for the proposed number of sessions with your booking. If you are paying by bank transfer payment will need to be received by the first of each month to secure your place. If your child is absent due to sickness we will not be able to refund the booking fee. However, with a longer term absence (2 days or more) we would issue a refund. This would enable us to securely fill that space with due notice. Payments for extended services provision using the childcare vouchers will continue with the current booking arrangements.

From September 2016:

The After School Club will provide 54 places for children aged 5- 11years old, from 3:15pm – 5:50pm, Monday to Friday.

30 places will be allocated for under 8 years old provision.

24 places will be allocated for over 8 years old provision.

Daily sessions will continue to be charged at £10.00 per day, less than £4.00 per hour for childcare.

Children will continue to be located in Tower Hill. There are two rooms available for use; an under and over 8 year old provision, however at times the clubs may decide on planned joint activities.

There will be two planned ‘teatimes’ for children from 4:30 – 5:15pm. Children will have access to snacks/drinks at all times throughout the session. Teatimes are staggered to ensure that the younger children eat earlier if hungry and that children who are collected mid-session are still catered for before they leave.

In order to ensure that child to adult ratios are met, there will be three members of staff working with the under 8 years old club.

There will be two members of staff working with the over 8 years old club.
