We have been seeing a big increase in the number of children collected late from after school clubs. We would like to politely remind you that attendance at clubs is conditonal on the children being collected on time. Staff run these clubs voluntarily in their own time and it is patently unfair to add to the length of their day and interfere with their own arrangements. By way of example, one member of staff this week missed their own children’s pick up as they were here still, over half an hour late, awaiting collection of children at the club they had been running.
