After school club
On Monday we started the new after school club systems. The newcosts of £10 per night have been communicated to all families. Following feedback from parents about how many nights they required after school club for, we were in the position to keep the club going at the new price. However, this first week has seen significantly lower numbers of children attending than we expected. This therefore poses a significant risk to our ability to keep the club going. This really is a 'use it or lose' it situation. Neither Windwhistle Primary School or Bournville Primary School is in a position to be able to subsidise the costs. Please can I remind all working parents, claiming universal credit, that you can claim back up to 85% of your childcare costs - please follow this link to see how this can be achieved. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/universal-credit-childcare-costs We will continue to monitor the attendance closely over the next week, however without commitment to regularly attending the club, it is unlikely that we will be able to keep it going. Please support this vital service.
