On cancelling, School Money will credit back your account automatically and the credit can be used to book another session. If your child is unwell you will not be charged for the session. If the session is not cancelled or it is less than 24 hours before the session then you will be charged the full rate.

Collection

Children must be promptly collected by 6.pm for Afterschool and Holiday Club. If due to unforeseen circumstances you are not able to collect your child at the end of each session, two members of staff will remain with your child on the premises until the situation is resolved or you arrive. it is imperative that you call the After School/Holiday Club to let us know of any potential delay as soon as possible, because we are required to contact the authorities if a parent is more than 15 minutes late without any prior warning.  We will do all we can to make contact with delayed parents before such action is taken by the AOOSC.

Children in our custody may leave the premises with the person named on the child’s registration form and our staff must be satisfied by their identity. If you or your nominee is collecting your child for the first time, please make yourselves known to our staff. If you wish someone not named on the registration form to collect your child, we must be satisfied that this is with your permission and that the person collecting the child knows an agreed password.

If we believe that your child is unwell we will contact you to come and collect them.
