Dear Parents and Carers
Thank you for your holiday club booking (or interest in booking!). For those of you who have previously attended the after school club at the school, you will know some of this information already…but please take time to remind yourself of the requirements of the club. The holiday club is situated in St Joseph’s Centre, to the right of St Mary’s Catholic Primary School and we are lucky to have use of the open-plan indoor area, large kitchen, plus the school's playground, pond, large field and adventure play areas
LOCATION / ACCESS
For those of you unaware of the location of the club, the school is situated on the corner of Webbs Wood Road and Juniper Way - postcode BS32 8EJ. Access to the holiday club is via theupper gate (to the right hand side of the car park). Please park considerately in the street outside the schooland use the doorbell on the outside of St Joseph’s Centre. You will need to make contact with a staff member and sign your children in. Drop-off and collection may be made at any time between 8am and 6pm. Please remember to sign your children out on collection.
WHAT TO BRING
Children may need to bring an extra pair of old outdoor shoes or trainers if the field area is likely to be wet and muddy. Achange of clothes, suncream and a hat would be useful too in sunny weather. Please send children in casual clothes and shoes that you do not mind them playing in (no flip-flops please) - that's why they are with us! If you choose not to take the option of a club meal for £2 extra (pre-booked) you will need to provide a packed lunch (NO NUT products please). The children will be given breakfast and regular snacks and drinks throughout the day (see below) so please do not send them in with sweets or chewing gum as it leads to competitive behaviour and we will have to ask children to hand in their snacks to a member of staff for the child to take home at the end of the day. Children will NOT need to bring computer games, ipods or mobile phones- we have all your contact details and if you need to contact us for any reason please ring the holiday club mobile number below. Spare clothes/ muddy boots may be left at the club if required.
There will be breakfast provided between 8.30am and 9.30am consisting of cereal, toast and fruit. There will be a snack at 10.30 of fruit and drinks, and lunch will be 12.30-1pm. There is a light snack at 4-4.30pm of toast, wraps and fruit and drinking water will be available all day. We are able to provide a range of lunches for £2 per day – we will serve meals such as tomato pasta, cheese/ ham/salad wraps, beans on toast etc with yoghurts, fruit and snack bars.
If you haven’t booked a lunch online, please let us know in advance, by email or at the club at least 48 hours before if you require club lunches. You cannot book on the day. Payment will need to be made in advance, by Childcare Voucher or BACS to OOSC 25093797 52-21-32. We no longer accept cheques or cash for payment. We will have all your child's medication information on site, but please let us know if they have any food allergies or concerns on the Registration form.
There are a large number of activities available for the children to enjoy. If your child wants to paint or make junk models all day, or design and make an enormous Lego model, that's fine! Children need 'down time' in the holidays and we will provide opportunities for them to relax as well as play. There will also be a range of structured activities on offer such as cooking or craft, as well as pond-dipping, outdoor games and den-making.
We are committed to providing an environment where children take ‘managed risks’ and learn new experiences under close supervision.
- All activities will be closely supervised by experienced club Playleaders with a high ratio of children to adults.
- All areas will be risk-assessed daily before children use them.
- Children may not use their own bikes or skateboards.They are welcome to bring their own scooters with helmets but they are only for the child’s own use.
- A first aider will always be present with the club phone, contact details and a first aid kit.
The staff you will meet at the club are experienced OOSC staff members from our clubs at St Mary's, Charlton Wood, St Helen’s, Frenchay and St Mary's Thornbury clubs: Marina, Ali and Cath will be leading the sessions with Renata, Sarah, Sid, Jacob, Luke. Massimo and Guila supporting, plus some welcome Volunteers. There will always be at least one qualified Paediatric first aider on site.
