Registration & Charging Policy

  • A Registration Form must be completed when a child first joins the Club and any changes relating to emergency contact numbers, medical conditions, etc., must be notified immediately.
  • A Session Booking Form must be completed when a child first starts at HHC.
  • At the beginning of each Term parents should advise of any holidays booked and and will not be charged.
  • Fees are payable IN ADVANCE - through School Money.
    Childcare vouchers are also accepted.
    NO cash or cheques will be accepted.
  • It should be appreciated that staff hours must be organised in advance according to expected numbers therefore, once sessions are booked, they are chargeable. If extra sessions are required for a particular week, every effort will be made to accommodate them.
  • There is no reduction for part of a session and, equally, if any child is collected after the agreed sessions ends, the full amount for that next session will be charged.
  • PENALTY CLAUSE - late payment of fees causes a disproportionate amount of work for the Manager in collecting them. Therefore, a late payment fee and removal of a place at club will be levied if fees are not paid.

Penalty for Late Collection:

The Club has to close at 6pm promptly, at which time the school has to be secured for the night.
Late collection of a child involves extra time for the school caretaker, the club manager/deputy & at least 1 other member of staff, there is no Insurance cover and, whilst the club is legally required to contact the Social Care Emergency Duty Team in this event, every effort will be made to avoid this.
In view of the above, a LATENESS PENALTY of £10.00 for each quarter of an hour, or part thereof, is imposed.
