When Ordsall Primary School opens in September 2020 there is going to be a slight change to our wraparound care provision, as a result of the government's guidance and our risk assessments. The need to create bubbles of consistent pupils, clean areas thoroughly and minimise the spread and number of contacts that a pupil has, means that we will not run breakfast club or after school club provision as we have run it in the past. As the school begins the Autumn Term we will however be offering a drop off provision in the morning, starting at 8:00 a.m.for families who really need it. This drop off provision will not provide any food or activities for the children and the cost is £2.50 per day per child to cover staffing costs and enhanced cleaning for the period that this provision runs.
The after school provision will be limited to the children of registered Critical Workers and will last only from the end of school time until 5:00 p.m. to give time for thorough and enhanced cleaning. The cost of this provision is £5.00 per child. Many parents and carers are already registered as key Workers however if you wish to register for the new term then please email the school.
Both these provisions will require parents to book through the Gateway and parents and carers must make full payment before the booking is confirmed. We will not be able to take bookings in any other way, including late bookings, and no booking will be confirmed without full payment being made for all sessions booked. Any payments made which are not then used, due to absence, will be credited to parent/carer accounts.
