After School Child Care

Roydon Acorns After School Club

Roydon Acorns After School Club is an independent club that has been created to cater for parents needs for quality affordable childcare.  As registered childminders our aim is to offer a safe, caring, fun environment for all children with a reliable consistent service throughout the school term.

The children will enjoy a variety of activities which are planned to stimulate and encourage development, as well as to teach them to cooperate with each other at work and play.

The club will operate from Roydon Primary School, with the use of outdoor spaces, the main hall, classroooms and the library.  Children attending any other after school activities can join Roydon Acorns at 4.15pm.

Roydon Acorns After School Club has its own independent OFSTED registration, membership with Out of School Alliance and own public and employers liability insurance policy. The club has qualified and caring staff who work as a team to ensure that we exceed parents and carers expectations. Our intake is for ages 4 - 11 years.

During term time, we offer:

After School Club: 3:15pm - 5:30pm (Monday to Friday)

The only time the club will not run will be when the school operates parents/teacher consultation evenings and school productions at various times of the year.

Registration and Admission

Admission critieria: Age of child and availability of places. In the event of a waiting list, priority will be given to siblings.  Parents/carers will have to complete registration forms which can be downloaded from this website and agree to our policies and procedures also available to view on this website. We are committed to a totally non-discriminatory practice and will treat all children/families with equal concern and acknowledge their specific needs and requirements.

We encourage parents and carers to take advantage of the new tax credits which represent a helping hand for thousands of families who will be able to offset the costs of childcare and raising children.  For a claim form contact the Inland Revenue help line number: 0845 300 390.

Should parents/carers experience difficulties with payment of fees the club expects them to discuss the matter as soon as possible and we will be as supportive as possible.

All children must be signed out.  The after school club hours are strictly 3:15 - 5:30pm.

Late collection will result in fines of £5.00 for every 15 minutes or part thereof.  Persistent late collection will constitute a serious breach of contract and may lead to the withdrawal of the club place.  We will only release children to persons named by parents / carers on their registration form or as instructed by parent / carers in the case of emergency or change.  Checks will be made - passwords etc used.  Please do not take offence or be embarrassed if questions are asked and phone calls are made. The club takes every precaution where your childrens safety is concerned.

Discipline

Staff will treat all children with respect, equally children will be expected to treat each other and staff with respect and consideration.

Any staff member found not respecting children in their care, would be subject to disciplinary proceedings.

We will not tolerate discriminatory behaviour, bullying and harassment.  The aim of the club is to encourage appropriate social behaviour with a gentle and consistent approach. Inappropriate behaviour is discussed with the child and parents/carers to ensure a consistent approach.  Persistent inappropriate behaviour may result in the child's place withdrawn with 2 weeks notice.

First Aid & Accident Procedure

Parents' prior consent is sought with regard to emergency treatment as per registration form.

Fully equipped First Aid Boxes are labelled and easily accessible to trained First Aiders.  The boxes are regularly checked, restocked and are not accessible to children.

All accidents - no matter how minor, are recorded in the accident book.  Parents / carers will be given a verbal and a written account of what happened and any first aid given. They will also be required to sign the book as proof that they have been advised of the accident.  If medical attention is needed the parent / carer will be contacted immediately.

Every effort is made by the management and staff to keep the club as safe as possible for the children in our care.

Health Requirements

The club needs to be informed of any infectious disease and will in turn inform other parents/carers if necessary. Children cannot be allowed in to the club if they have an infectious disease or have had the last bout of sickness and diarrhoea within the last 48 hours, this is in line with Health Protection Agency guidelines.

Safeguarding Children

Our first priority is the protection of the children in our care.  We are committed to Essex Safeguarding Children Board (ESCB) set procedure and guidelines.  We ensure that all staff are aware of the possible signs and symptoms of children at risk and their responsibility to report concerns and keeping concerns confidential.

The club cannot take responsibility for expensive articles brought from home. Please do not allow children to bring in anything, including toys, which you are not prepared to see damaged.

Valuing Diversity

Roydon Acorns After School Club seek to be inclusive in all its endeavours.   All children irrespective of their cultural, social, religion,  ethnic background, beliefs or non beliefs will be encouraged to make a positive contribution towards the activities within the club in order to enrich the development of all. 

Special Needs Policy

The club is committed to the integration of children with special needs.  Our philosophy is that every child matters and has a right to be educated and to develop to her/his full potential alongside other children.  We will work together with parents and other relevant parties to organise the environment and plan activities to ensure that all children take part at a level appropriate to their needs.

Confidentiality

The club respects the rights of all children and their families to complete confidentiality unless there are child safety concerns.  All records are confidential and stored in a secure area.

Snacks
