Spring 2018 Newsletter

Dear Parents/Carers and Friends of CCC Club

Welcome back

A big welcome back after a well-deserved break by everyone. A big thank you to everyone who participated in the Christmas fundraiser of which we raised over £100 pounds. This money will be spent to buy some new items for the children to be creative and have fun with. The Christmas party was a great success and the children and staff had great fun and enjoyment.   A big thank you to Jake for putting out some great tunes and disco moves with the children.

There will be a trip to the Cinema and Honor Oak Adventure Playground. A full program of daily evens will be on display in both Clubs by Monday 5th February.

Memorable password

As you are aware we are updating our systems for safeguarding purposes to include a memorable password for children who are collected by persons who are not regular collectors. We gave slips out back in October last year and asked for you to return to staff by the end of November. If you have not been given a slip or forgot to hand it back, please speak to a member of the staff team who will gladly give you a new slip for you complete and return. Children will be allowed to go home unless the memorable password is given.


Easter Holidays

We are not going to be operating a Holiday Scheme for the Easter Break as we do not have sufficient staff to cover over this period. We will be operating a May Half Term and Summer scheme. Further details to follow.


Changing days /sessions/clubs at school

If you wish to change or cancel sessions, you need to give sufficient notice to the CCC Club to enable us to amend our records and also please read the parent terms and conditions or how much notice is given. We understanding at some of the schools your children may change clubs, however, it is important that you email us to let us know and also inform your child’s class teacher, so we are all clear on this matter and children are not left at school uncollected.
