Where there are more applicants than places and the above criteria have been exhausted then places will be allocated randomly.
Places will be offered to parents by the 1st July. To secure the place/s parents will be required to pay a deposit of £20 by the 10th July.
Where a deposit has not been received by the 10th July the place will be offered to parents on any waiting list.
Parents can pay using Child Care Vouchers, Tax Free Credits and online using a debit card.
If, on making an enquiry about a place for their child a parent is informed that there is not a suitable one available, then requests will be placed on the waiting list in the order that they are submitted.
As soon as a places becomes available the parent on the top of the list will be contacted to see if they would like to take up the offer of a place. If the parent no longer needs a place their name will be removed from the list. If the space is not suitable but they would still like to wait for a suitable place then their name will remain on the waiting list in the same position and the next parent on the list will be contacted.
On receiving a place parents will be given a copy of this policy, or signposted to the policy on the school website.
Parents can apply for a place mid-year for the After School Club. They can do this by completing a registration form and handing it in to the school office. Any available places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
