Newchurch Robins Wrap Around Care

Newchurch will give every child a flying start by working in partnership with parents, staff and the community to develop well-rounded citizens who will contribute in a positive way to society.
At Newchurch we are very proud and passionate about our school. Our warm family ethos flows throughout our school and Newchurch Robins Afterschool Club.We are confident that your child will be happy here.
 
Our breakfast and after school club operates onsite daily during term time.

The club is run operationally by experienced members of school staff supported by key workers. All of our staff are fully trained in safeguarding. Key personnel are fully trained in first aid and hold the appropriate level of food hygiene certification. Newchurch Primary Head Teacher and Senior Leadership Team are responsible for the strategic operational management.

If you need to urgently contact Newchurch Robins, please call: 07432405146. This number is not to be used for bookings or enquiries. If you wish to make any changes to your bookings, please email: Newchurch_Robins@warrington.gov.uk and we will respond to emails between 8am and 4pm Monday to Friday. This system will be reviewed on an ongoing basis and we will continually make improvements based on feedback.
 
Please note that children cannot be dropped off before 7.30am and that the club closes at 6pm. A late collection fee of £1 per minute is charged after this time to cover staff costs. If a child is collected late on a continuous basis, you may be asked to find alternative arrangements for your childcare.

We welcome sessions being booked four weeks in advance to support our operational planning and staffing. We appreciate that this is not always possible and we will try our utmost to accommodate ad hoc sessions / extensions to sessions which will be debited on the day via ParentPay. We operate on this basis to cover our operational costs.

We understand that plans change and we ask that you provide a minimum of one week notice if you need to cancel a session. If you do not provide this notice, you will be billed for the session. If your child is absent from school, you will still be billed for the session. We operate on this basis to cover our operational costs.

We have chosen to use ParentPay as the system for the collection of our fees. Sessions will be debited on ParentPay on the day that your child attends. The benefit of ParentPay is that it provides a real time up to date picture of your charges and it also allows you the facility to pay straight away, if you choose. We expect the accumulated daily debits to be cleared by the 1st day of the following month. For example, if you attend sessions in June, your ParentPay account debits must be cleared by the 1st July. We have childcare voucher accounts in place with the following providers: Edenred, Fideliti, Care-4.co.uk, Computershare, Busy Bees, Kiddivouchers and Sodexo. Our Ofsted number for account purposes is: 111189.

If you wish to use the government tax free childcare facility you must let us know via email: Newchurch_Robins@warrington.gov.uk when you have sent the payment to Newchurch Primary School. We request that our fees be paid on time. We feel that we are very fair with our terms and any debt will be unfairly carried and impact on our school budget. If you do not pay within timescales, your child will be unable to continue to attend the club.
If you have any queries regarding your fees, please email Newchurch_Robins@warrington.gov.uk. We will look to continuously improve this process based upon feedback.
Catering:
Breakfast – a cold breakfast (cereal, brioche and pancakes etc.) is served from 7.30am and a hot breakfast (toast, crumpets and bagels etc.) is served from 8am.
Afternoon snack – a light snack will be served during the afternoon session (sandwiches, wraps, cheese, crackers and fruit). This is a light snack designed to provide refreshment until a child has dinner at home.
Resources and activities: a wide selection of toys, games and craft activities are available for the children to use. Our resources are updated regularly and children are asked to share their views on what resources and activities they would like.
Homework: our club is a place for children to build relationships with their peers, have fun and relax after school, if they wish to do their homework there will be a quiet area for them to complete it.
Behaviour: we expect the same level of behaviour in our club as in school. Policies that apply in school also apply at club. Any disruptive behaviour will be reported to parents and the Head Teacher.
This is a brief overview of our club, if you require more in-depth information, we have a complete policy and procedure document covering all aspects of the club.
Please note that as your child currently attends Newchurch Primary School and to reduce additional paperwork, we will use the information that we hold regarding ethnic origin, home language and religious affiliation.
