Holy Family Catholic Primary School
Wrap around care takeover by
Breakfast & After School Club
Jousters currently operates in 10 different schools in the Hertfordshire area, providing a before and after school service. From three of the schools we provide a holiday club service in St. Albans, Welwyn Garden City and Harpenden.
With all our clubs, we strive to deliver value for money - high-quality - extra-school childcare. We believe this is reflected in our reputation and continued successful operation of several clubs in the area.
We are delighted to be opening a club at Holy Family School from September 2019.
from 7.30am to 8.50am Daily Routine
We will continue to be located in the dining room with access to the school outside play area and field. Children from Reception, Year 1 and 2 are collected from their classes by Jousters staff and children from Years 3 to 6 are expected to walk through the school to join us.
Once children are signed in they are free to choose what they would like to do from a range of toys and activities, such as crafts, construction, dressing up, and table top games as well as adult led activities such as cooking, sewing and messy play.
The children from Reception class are allocated a Jousters key worker, this is to help us get to know them quickly and to settle them into Jousters. While children are in our care we believe Jousters has a wonderful opportunity to support children with their social skills such as sharing, taking turns, being polite, respecting each other and staff, independent skills such as buttering their own bread or pouring a drink. We will work closely with the children's teachers to make sure each child has the best care possible. We believe children should be able to join in with a range of fun activities and so long as they are playing nicely, plenty of free choice. We believe children should be encouraged to play, create, build and do, or simply socialise with their friends.
Children are offered a healthy light tea such as toast, pitta, wraps, fresh fruit, water and milk with low sugar spreads, cheese and marmite, please do speak to staff if your child has any medical allergies or intolerances.
Please note: we do not allow children to supply their own unhealthy snacks.
School Based Clubs
Children wishing to join in with school based clubs such as netball are also able to do so, we do not give discounted sessions when part of a session is missed but if you let the Jousters staff know we will make sure they get collected from the club at the end of their session.
To make a booking please fill in a booking form below, along with the children’s record of information form and return these forms to our office address with your £50 deposit. Until we physically have the required forms and deposit at the Jousters office your child is unable to start using the club.
Once we have your forms we are able to confirm your booking and allocate you a Jousters account number.
Your deposit will be deducted from your first invoice. Invoices are posted out 2 weeks before each of the 6 half-term periods in the academic year, in accordance with your booking and the days the school is open.
We offer 10% prompt payment discount on all invoices paid in full before each half term starts, this is given as a credit on your account to come off the following half term's bill.
We will keep your booking rolling over every half term and into any new school year but ask that you give us 4 weeks notice to cancel or amend your booking.
Fees are due for all sessions including days off for sickness and school trips, even when parents request time off in advance full fees are still due. This is to ensure we have the correct staff ratio’s at all times.
