About The Club

Vicky’s After School Clubs are registered with Ofsted. Our clubs are open for 3 hours after school weekdays, during term time. We are based in 4 Schools, Aston & Cote Primary School, Standlake Primary School, Queen Emma’s Primary School and John Blandy Primary School. We have a notice board displaying Ofsted registration certificates, Insurance certificates, Safeguarding Policy and Complaints Policy.

Our Aims

At Vicky’s After School Clubs we aim to provide a safe, secure and relaxed environment, offering a range of activities to reflect the interests of the children in our care.

What We Offer

Our Clubs follow the Play work Principles, so the children are free to choose activities and resources as they wish. There will always be a selection of activities and resources available, including arts and crafts, board games, construction, physical play, quiet area and reading. In addition, other resources are available for the children to select from our equipment library.

What We Provide

The food we provide at are Clubs is not intended as a substitute for a main evening meal. We provide healthy snacks, including fresh fruit and vegetables. We promote independence, by encouraging the children to prepare their own snacks, and to clear away after themselves. We use fresh ingredients and follow statutory guidelines. Fresh drinking water is available at all times. We meet individual dietary requirements and parental preferences wherever possible. We recognise the importance of healthy nutrition for children delivered in a calm, friendly setting. School now offer the option of hot meals at lunchtime which we would encourage all children to try and participate in.

Admission & Fees

Admission

Our Clubs aim to be accessible to children and families from all sections of our local community. Admission to the club is organised by the Manager and we use a waiting list system when the need arises. The waiting list will be operated on a first come-first served basis, with the exception of siblings who will have priority for the same days as a sibling already attending. 

We require a completed set of registration forms for your child before they can attend the club. This information will be treated as confidential and will be stored appropriately.

Re-enrolment for September is required at the end of the summer term. We cannot keep a place open for your child unless you complete a new registration form.

Fees

Please contact Vicky for current club fees. Fees are payable in advance by bank transfer or childcare vouchers. We accept vouchers from a number of schemes (Please speak to Vicky regarding this)

The price per session per child applies to all children. This is payable for all booked sessions including when your child is sick, or on holiday (regardless of the amount of notice given).

We do not charge for bank holidays and professional training days.

Please ensure that fees are paid promptly. Non-payment for more than one month may result in your place being terminated. If you are having difficulty paying fees, please speak in confidence to the Manager.

Induction

You and your child are welcome to visit the Club before your child’s first day, to familiarise yourselves with the setting and to help your child settle in.

During your child’s first session time will be set aside for an induction. The induction will include running through Club’s rules and routines (including meal times, collection, children’s meetings), and introducing your child the staff and other children.

Another child will usually be allocated to act as your child’s buddy for the first few sessions.

See our Child Induction Policy for more details.
