From this week, we will be changing our registers routine for after school clubs.

Rather than in the afternoons, registers will be taken by teachers in the morning and when children say they are not going to be attending, a text or phone call will be made to parents/carers to confirm that this is indeed correct.

We have realised that children could say they are not going to a club and not attend when parents/carers were actually expecting them to and think they are there. We were told about this happening in another school recently and want to close this ‘loophole’, unlikely as it is.

This will only apply to Key Stage Two as all KS1 children have to be collected at the end of day and there is no potential for the above scenario
