After School Wrap Around Care
As a response to the closure of after school care providers locally, we will be extending our opening hours to 6:00pm from Monday 23rd March. I must stress that you should only use this service if there is no other available childcare. We aim to keep the number of pupils and staff on site to an absolute minimum. The service will be charged in order for us to cover the cost of staffing and food. The fee will be £10 (and £8 for any siblings). This is a flat rate and includes a snack provided by our current catering staff. This price is at the lower end of what parents/carers reported that they are currently paying with other providers when we conducted our data collection several months ago. A typical weekly menu will be as follows:
Monday – Cheese Catherine Wheel with fruit
Tuesday – 1/2 baguette filled with Cheese with Carrot and Cucumber Sticks
Wednesday – Ham Wrap with a packet of Raisins
Thursday – Sausage Roll with 2 x 1/4 Orange
Friday – Cheese with Crackers and a Yoghurt
Due to changes in the delivery of stock this week, the menu may be somewhat different but we will ensure that pupils get a snack and drink.
Parental Extended Services Agreement and registration forms are available in the school office ready to sign if you require the service. Since it is such short notice, you are free to do this at collection time after the first session. If you would like to book a regular place or a place on an ad hoc basis, please follow the link:applegarth.parentseveningsystem.co.uk
You can also book places through the ‘useful links’ section on the School Gateway App.
Please be patient in the initial stages; we have had to set up at very short notice but our intention is to enable critical workers to fight the spread of the virus.
