BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL CLUB NEWS

Thank you to all the families who have joined and registered for our Before & After School Clubs.  I know some families have not managed to secure all the places they hoped for but we have seen an enormous increase in requests.  To help satisfy demand, we prepared ahead, have increased the number of places available and are in the process of recruiting extra staff.  Despite this we still have waiting lists for all sessions other than Monday After School Club where we currently have a few vacant places.

Please be assured that we will continue to monitor the numbers very closely and will offer you places as soon as they become free.  However, we do not have any plans to increase the maximum numbers any further at present as we believe the Club’s room is at its comfortable capacity.

If you were thinking of applying for spaces, please still do so as we are experiencing an unusually high volume of change requests this term and the vacancy situation can change surprisingly quickly.  With this in mind, if you are on our waiting lists but no longer need the places, please do let us know as this makes it much quicker and more efficient to reallocate spaces.

The Club administrator, Mrs Vago, can be contacted any morning via the school office or by email:

clubs@stmarymagsbex.e-sussex.sch.uk

Many thanks for your cooperation and patience,

Miss Vanderschelden

 

Payment

We wish to clarify our payments system, as I am aware there may have been some confusion lately, and unfortunately quite a few families needed reminders from our Bursar.  Invoices are sent via the Clubs or classes towards the end of the month to cover the following month. We require payment in advance but give leeway up to the 15th of the month to pay. So as an example, May’s invoices were sent on 23rd April and needed to be paid by 15th May.  If you have any problems and need extra time to pay your invoice, please do contact Mrs Wilson, our Bursar, who is here to help you.  However, sadly, I must remind you that failure to pay or late payments will incur a penalty (see your copy of our Terms & Conditions) of £10 to cover the increased administration.  Please get in touch with the school Bursar should you have difficulties in paying on time to avoid the penalty.  To the majority of our families who pay perfectly on time…. A BIG THANK YOU, it is much appreciated.
