Holiday Club

The holiday club is funded through the school budget share. The Governing Body has agreed each year to allocate sufficient funds for the purpose of running a programme to pupils of Amwell View School over the age of eight years old. Unfortunately the regulations restrict the age group, so the club cannot be offered to those under eight without registering the club as child care provision. This would make it much more complicated and therefore it has been decided to remain as a club for children over eight.

Whilst you are asked to pay £15.00 per day towards the cost of the club it in no way covers the true cost. The budget allocated is £17,000, which means that each place costs £288.13, organised events and the employment of all staff. As many of you know I am committed to providing this service to the families of the school and therefore trust that it is appreciated and valued. Although I am rather shy to explain this to you I am told that I need to share with you that I volunteer to oversee the Holiday club and therefore do not add to the cost involved in running the Club. This Year Jane Connolly and Neil Ward shared this responsibility with me.

It is important that we keep this opportunity open for the pupils at the school and I feel confident that we will allocate sufficient funds from the school budget share next year to support the continued provision. The club has the full backing of the Governing Body and my 100% commitment.
