    Collection Of Children At The End Of The School Day

    Children should be collected promptly at the end of the school day.

    For reasons of safety, at the end of the school day we will only hand your child over to yourselves or another authorised person. Parents should complete and return the a Persons Authorised to Collect Children From School form, detailing all those persons who have your permission to collect your child on a regular basis.

    A copy of this form will be held in each class to ensure that only authorised persons are taking your child home.  Any other ad hoc changes to this will need to be communicated either via your child’s class teacher or by a telephone call to the school office before 2.30pm (11am or 2.50pm if the child is in Nursery). If we haven’t received any notification and an unauthorised person arrives to pick up your child, we will not release your child until we have spoken directly to you.

    Oaks Wrap-around School Childcare Provision

    At Oakgrove Primary we offer wrap around care in our Oaks Fun Club with Early Oaks running before school and Late Oaks running after school.  The emphasis is on creating a vibrant and fun club, which the children look forward to and enjoy every day.

    At Early Oaks Breakfast Club children can be dropped off anytime from 7.45am until 8.30am.  The, children are offered a nutritional breakfast followed by the chance to participate in fun, educational activities or catch up on any homework they have. The fee for each session is £5.

    At Late Oaks, the children are taken directly from their classes to the club at the end of the school day.  They are given an initial snack and drink before they are then free to take part in any of the numerous activities that are set up for them to engage in each day.  The children all sit together for a light hot tea at 4pm.  Parents have a choice of two payment sessions to book; for a parent collection up to 4.30pm the cost is £8, and for a parent collection up 6pm the session cost is £10.

    Bookings and payments for both clubs can be made directly from a pupils’ ParentPay account.  Childcare vouchers will be accepted – please contact the School Office with details of your Childcare Voucher provider and they will be able to give you the information you require to set this form of payment up.

    Whilst we will seek to offer as much flexibility as possible, due to the need to plan for staffing ratio, we cannot guarantee places for people unless they are booked in advance.  If you book a session but your child does not attend, you may be charged for the session.
