Wrap Around Care (Breakfast and After School Club)

Wrap Around Care (Breakfast and After School Club)

 

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

I want to take this opportunity to clarify the role of our wrap around care.    

Firstly, the school organises this provision for our families in order to support our working families, however, it does run independently. Therefore, if you have any messages for school staff (not staff working during wrap around care) can I please ask our families to go through the proper channels and contact the school directly via the following means: 

  • Contacting your child’s class teacher (Key Stage Leaders/ Family Support Worker etc.) via ClassDojo. 
  • Emailing the school office or Inclusion Manager, Mrs Stere and stating ‘For the attention of…’ (FAO). 
  • Speaking to your child’s class teacher face to face during pick up times. 
  • Telephoning the school office. 

Any messages handed to the wrap around care staff for the attention of school staff will not be passed on.   We are not trying to be awkward, but different staff work at different times.    

Obviously, if the messages relate to the wrap around care provision then please feel free to speak to the wrap around care staff.  

We just want to ensure that your messages get to where they are meant to! 

Finally, families need to ensure that our wrap around care can meet the needs of your child(ren) as it is independent of the school and therefore additional support (key workers etc.) are not available.   If your child(ren) need additional support at all times or require smaller settings, we do advise you to look for alternative provision.   We know a couple of lovely child minders and we are happy to share their details with you individually, on request. 

 

Thank you for your support in these matters.

 

Kind regards

 

Mr C. Laker

Headteacher
