Roboodles Before & After School Care

 

 

SEPTEMBER 2020 UPDATE

Dear Parents,

 

We hope you are all safe and well.

On 2nd July, we received some good news regarding the re-opening of Before and After School settings within Primary Schools (see below)

 

Extra-curricular provision

Schools should consider resuming any breakfast and after-school provision, where possible, from the start of the autumn term. We recognise that schools may need to respond flexibly and build this up over time. Such provision will help ensure pupils have opportunities to re-engage with their peers and with the school, ensure vulnerable children have a healthy breakfast and are ready to focus on their lessons, provide enrichment activities, and also support working parents.

We recognise that this will be logistically challenging for schools, particularly for clubs that would normally offer support across year groups, where parents are using multiple providers, or where childminders are picking up/dropping off pupils. Schools should carefully consider how they can make such provision work alongside their wider protective measures, including keeping children within their year groups or bubbles where possible. If it is not possible to maintain bubbles being used during the school day then schools should use small, consistent groups.

 

After studying the ever changing and somewhat contradictory government guidelines, we have interpreted them to enable us to return, albeit in a slightly different way to how we operated pre Covid-19. Taking this guidance into account, we are pleased to advise that we will be re-opening Roboodles when pupils return in September, offering our usual Monday to Friday session times:-

 

Breakfast:-         08:15 to 08:45

After School:-    15:35 to 17:00

 

Safety and cleanliness was always high on our list of priorities but even more so now. We are working on a plan that will ensure that children still have as much fun as they did before!

We intend to hold After School club outside (please pray for good weather!) and in the following bubbles:-

 

Bubble 1 – Class 1&2 (Max No of children 15)

Bubble 2 – Class 3&4 (Max No of children 15)

 

These bubbles will not change until the rules re bubbles are relaxed.

Breakfast Club will be run using the same bubble template, but will still be in the school hall.

 

To all parents who currently have a permanent place held for your child(ren): Please can you re-confirm your bookings for September. If you no longer require your place, please advise us ASAP as we are number limited and that place can be made available to others.

 

If you haven’t used Roboodles before and would like to enquire about our clubs, please email roboodles@outlook.com and we will send over our registration pack (please note that the pack is ‘pre covid-19’ and we will issue additional information regarding our extra commitments and safety measures before September)

 

Further information will follow about drop off/pick up and our new practices etc before we re-open.

As you can appreciate – there is a lot that can change (and probably will) between now and September.

As always, Thank you for your continued support – We can’t wait to be back doing what we love!

Parents, Guardians and Carers

As parents of school age children, we understand the pressures of juggling school runs and getting to/leaving work on time/finding that minutes peace to get your life in order.

How can we help you?

Under our Roboodles umbrella, we run 2 clubs; ‘Rise & Shine Roboodles’ breakfast club and ‘Movers & Makers Roboodles’ after school club.

We are enhanced DBS checked, qualified in Paediatric First Aid and have full public liability insurance.

Available Monday to Friday, term time only for children of Reception age and above.

 

Rise & Shine Roboodles Permanent Booking Ad Hoc Booking
AM Session 08:15 – 08:55  £                   4.00  £                  5.00

Children are offered a selection of cereals, toast, fruit loaf and fruit. We encourage relaxed play though traditional games, lego building and colouring.

 

Movers & Makers Roboodles Permanent Booking Ad Hoc Booking
PM Session* 15:35 – 17:00  £                   6.00  £                  7.50

After a light snack and a drink, we deliver a fun and active ‘Get Moving’ session. The session concentrates on practicing teamwork and coordination through organised physical activities.

The ‘Makers’ session proceeds the ‘Movers’. In this time we deliver adult led craftworks, according to our seasonal activity planner. We focus on creativity and resourcefulness through fun and varied projects.

Places are offered on a first-come first-served basis. When all places have been filled a waiting list will be established, with the following order of priority:

  1. Siblings of children already attending the club
  2. Those requiring the greatest number of sessions/hours per week
    Registration

When an enquiry regarding places is made, parents or carers will be given all the relevant Club information. If no places are available the parent will be informed and the child’s name added to the waiting list. As soon as suitable places become available parents will be informed.

Booking Procedure
Parents must complete the necessary paperwork before their children can attend the club.

Permanent place:
Once booked, if a child does not attend for any reason, you will still be charged for this place. If you wish to cancel the place altogether, one month’s notice in writing is required.

Ad Hoc booking:
We will accept temporary or occasional bookings as long as there are places available.

*Parents do not have to wait until our official finish time to collect a child. You can collect any time before this if required (if we are in the middle of a craft activity, this can be saved until the next time your child attends).

Our designated space is the School Hall (and in addition – the village green, playground & occasionally, classrooms). Access is through the main School door, using the Roboodles doorbell (its white/ clearly labelled and is positioned on the doorframe).

For more information and to register your interest (limited places available), please contact Roboodles via:
