October Update

Dear parents and carers

Here are a few updates from the CCC Club:

As you know Lucy is no longer the manager of the CCC Club.  We are presently interviewing for a new manager and the directors have taken on over the management duties until a new manager is appointed. Lucy will be staying on as a playworker.  

In this interim period we have changed some of the systems outlined below:  


All parents must enter through the door with the buzzer by the garden, not through the double doors of the Telegraph Hill Centre.  This is the case for the breakfast club drop off and the afterschool club pick up.  We will then escort you through to the club where you can sign your child out. We will be asking staff to enforce this, so please understand if they cannot let you in through the front St Catherine's entrance.


We really want all the children to know our names so we'll be wearing name stickers and playing name games so they all know our names.  We'll hope you get to know us too!


We are finding the school pick up and drop off's at John Stainer can be quite manic, especially now the double gates are open but unsupervised.  From now on, all the children will be required to be in CCC bibs and standing with the CCC Club playworker in the ‘CCC HQ’ area until the school bell rings.  We have been trialling this week with all the children waiting in the amphitheatre section of John Stainer. This ‘CCC HQ’ area means your child will know where to be and you will know where to find us. Please can you explain this to your child(ren) as well so they understand the importance of this.  We understand that this can be frustrating for the kids as they'll want to play with their friends however we cannot allow children to play in the playground unsupervised.   

We are also talking to John Stainer about the blue gates which are currently often left open and unstaffed and will feedback any response, and we have initiated a ‘Children’s Council’ on this subject so we can seek CCC Club Kids’ thoughts and ideas on this subject.  


Rosa’s CCC Club Choir has got off to a good start, with one trial session run in the last fortnight. We will shortly let you know details of their first performance during the Christmas period.

A very large number of you requested Piano Lessons!  We are compiling the list of piano lessons and may have to only give the 4 places away for the first week or so until we can source another time slot for other piano lessons.  We are still working on arranging these additional lessons this so please bear with us.

We are also meeting with the Freedom Academy this week and they should be in touch soon about starting on the first Wednesday after half term.    

Kind regards

Cher, Dawn, Jake, Juliana, Kate and Suzanne

CCC Club Directors
