All you need to know - FAQs
|How do I sign up?||You can click on the link on the right-hand side of the timetable, opposite the club you would like to book onto.|
Still need help? Click on the following link that will take you through the process step by step: https://knowledge.teamfeepay.com/joining-teamfeepay-guide All clubs are paid in advance for the term. No cash is taken. You will need to register your details and pay before you can be accepted on any of the clubs.
|What does my child need to bring/wear?||We ask that children wear suitable clothing for each activity club. A t-shirt, shorts, socks and trainers are fine for indoor activity clubs. For outdoor activity clubs it may be best to wear a tracksuit and even a coat if necessary. Football will be played on the grass, so players should wear shin pads and bring football boots in their bag to put on before. Every child should have a non-fizzy drink.|
|What will my child learn?||Fitness Club will focus on different ways of moving, with the emphasis being on improving stamina, speed and agility. Children will be challenged each week in activities such as: HIT Training (Circuits), Bleep Test (Progressive stamina building activity), Jogging, sprinting, and developing the core with age related body weight exercises. Sports Clubs such as Football, Korfball & Cricket will focus on individuals mastering the core skills of each game, and learning through match play. We look to develop leadership through positive communication, problem solving and sportsmanship.|
My child has no experience of playing sports, can she/he still sign up?
|Yes! Our activity clubs are for all abilities, girls and boys alike, with the emphasis on fun while improving fitness and skills.|
|Where do the children meet?||A.M Clubs: We ask parents to drop their children at the GLASS STAIRCASE AT THE FRONT PLAYGROUND 7.55.AM where Mr Godley will meet the group.|
P.M Clubs: KS1 Children leave their class at the end of their day and meet Mr Godley in the LOWER HALL.
KS2 leave their class at the end of the day and meet Mr Godley in the UPPER HALL.
|Where do I collect my child from? (P.M only)||P.M sessions – children will be signed out from the GLASS STAIRCASE FRONT PLAYGROUND. Parents must come into the playground to collect. Please do not ask children to meet you outside of the school entrance.|
|My child has medication at school, can they access this during club if needed?||No. Medication at school should not be removed from your child’s class. We ask that parents pack additional medication/inhalers in their child’s bag for every activity club. This way, medication will not be taken home by accident and leave the school without it if needed. In the event of a child not having their medication they may not be able to participate in the activity club.|
|I cannot attend an activity club, what is the process?||The session will of course still take place as we have other children taking part, so there will be no refunds or adding sessions that a child missed to the next term’s booking. If you know your child will not be attending, please text Mr Godley on 07496 542555 so he can update the register.|
|What happens if the weather is bad during an outdoor session?||All outdoor activity clubs will go into a hall in the event of adverse weather where the activity will continue.|
|Are numbers limited?||Yes, we can only take 16 children per class and it will on a first come first serve basis. If we have demand for additional spaces we will bring in an additional coach where possible. *Please note that for an Activity Club to run we require a minimum of 8 children booked on.|

|What happens if my child needs first aid?||Mr Godley holds the Level 3 Emergency Aid Award and will have a first aid bag at each session. He will also have a mobile phone to contact parents in the event of an emergency. All contact numbers will be on a register at each session.|
|Behaviour & expectations?||All parents will be asked to sign our participant code of conduct online prior to booking. It is important that children understand that they are responsible for what they say and do, and all children have the right to enjoy themselves to the full.|
|What about Covid-19?||Children will only mix with 2 age groups e.g Year 1-2, 3-4 or 5-6. Where possible we will try to avoid unnecessary contact, and encourage regular hand sanitation. Indoor activity clubs will be ventilated by opening windows, and equipment will be wiped down before and after use.
