After School Care Club

 Welcome to North Mundham After School Care Club

Our aim is to provide high quality after school care for pupils who attend North Mundham School where families wish to collect their child later than the end of the school day. The club aims to create an informal, ‘family’ environment where children of different ages interact, play and relax together.

Staffing

Care Club Manager: Miss V Humphries
Play Assistant: to be arranged
The club meet in Class 2 for registration. They use the hall, the community room and the outdoor spaces for supervised activities.

Admissions

Children can attend the club daily, on regular days each week or on an adhoc basis. Bookings are made by completing a booking form available from the school office.
Before attending the club for the first time, parents / carers need to complete a ‘child details form’ which includes details of contact telephone numbers, medical conditions, allergies etc.
The school reserves the right to refuse a booking or cancel a child’s booking if their behaviour jeopardises the safety or well-being of other children attending the club.
