Bookings must be made via the ParentMail booking system.  Please note that children cannot be accepted at the club unless booking and payment has been made in advanced. The cost of breakfast club is £3.50, unfortunately refunds can not be given due to absences. 

Behaviour

Club members are expected to behave sensibly and politely at all times in line with the schools established behaviour policy, a copy of which is available at the Early Bird Club.  Where persistent issues of poor behaviour are evident parents and school staff will be spoken to in the first instance in an effort to remedy any problems.  The Early Bird staff reserve the right to exclude children from the club if their behaviour is considered inappropriate or unsafe.

Child Protection

School staff are governed by very clear rules about child protection and should act within procedures established by the local Safeguarding Board.
