Early Birds and Night Owls
Covid-19 School Closures.
Night Owls will no longer be running during this period of school closures, if your child is attending school over the next coming weeks and you need a space in early birds please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will confirm a space for your child via email.
Thank you for your patience during this time.
The school runs a Breakfast Club and After School Club managed by members of our own staff, both are led by Mrs Jeni Trupia and assisted by other members of school staff.
Early Birds runs from 7.45-8.50 a.m. every morning. Breakfast typically includes toast, cereal and milk, yoghurt, fruit and a drink, and would be available from 7.45 until 8.15 a.m. The current charge is £4.00 for each session. ( This will increase to £4.50 from the autumn term.)
Night Owls runs each afternoon straight after school. Children can either stay until 4.30pm (£5) or until 6pm (£8). Sessions from the autumn term will increase by 50p per session.
For both Early Birds and Night Owls children are able to take part in various activities including outdoor play in a safe and restricted-access area, use of computers and games and other planned activities.
If your child is booked in to Night Owls to 6pm please remember that they MUST be collected by that time. If, in exceptional circumstances, you are delayed please make sure you have an alternative emergency contact to collect your child by 6pm on your behalf. In those circumstances please contact Night Owls staff on the school mobile number (07928 832 615) to advise them. If children are collected after 6pm we will have to make an additional charge of £5.00 per 10 minutes (or part of) that you are late.
Absence or changes notified at least one week in advance will be credited, however changes to bookings or absences with less than a week's notice will have to be paid for as staff will have been booked and food ordered.
The out of office hours number for Early Birds & Night Owls is 0792 883 2615. Please use this number if you need to contact Mrs Trupia and her team when Early Birds & Night Owls are in progress.
EARLY BIRDS AND NIGHT OWLS BOOKINGS ON SCHOOLGATEWAY
As you may be aware, parents may pay on-line for extended provision through SchoolGateway, which can be accessed via our school website. This will give parents the facility to book at the weekend or during school holidays rather than having to stick to the office opening times, you will also be able to log on and see instant availability for upcoming weeks.
You may book as many sessions as required at anytime, payment must be made at the time of booking. If payment is not made, then the booking will not be complete and you will not have reserved your child’s space in Early Birds or Night Owls. If you would like to pay with childcare vouchers then we must receive these from you in advance of your booking so that we can credit your account and therefore allow you to book as payment will be credited to your account. It may be the case that for the first term in September you will have to pay online as we must have time to process your vouchers and credit them to your account, we cannot accept responsibility if places are not available due to the childcare vouchers being delayed.
If you click on the link for SchoolGateway at the bottom of our Priors Wood Website page (www.priorswoodschool.com) and use the club option to book your child’s space. You can also download the app to your mobile from your app store.
