IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING BOOKING
                    AFTER SCHOOL CARE

Please read this information in conjunction with booking clubs and activities as we have had
to make changes to ASC in accordance to Government guidelines. From September 2020,
children are only to stay in ASC if they have been booked in. This is due to our need to
separate or distance year groups from each other, provide staffing to meet recommended
ratios, particularly in EYFS, and accommodate children in different locations. Unfortunately,
we are unable to take on-the-day bookings and if ASC numbers are at capacity, we ask
parents to make arrangements to collect children promptly at the end of the school day
and/or from co-curricular activities when they finish. Children who have been in school but
do not turn up to a pre-booked space in ASC will still be charged. Please note, at this time
bookings must only be made if you require ASC for work purposes.

               ASC booking will open at 6.00pm on Wednesday 31 March

                  IMPORTANT ACTIVITIES INFORMATION
Within this booklet, you will find information which details the Summer Term’s co-curricular
activities for all pupils. Do please read the information carefully so that you are able to make
the correct choices for your child.

You will notice that some clubs run before school and some after school. At the moment, we
are unable to run clubs at lunchtime. We have made every endeavour to offer a full range of
clubs and activities whilst following Government guidelines to keep children separated into
their year groups. As children progress through the school year and indeed through the
school, the range of activities expands and changes.

You can apply for places by signing up to the Virtual Activities Environment. This can be
accessed by visiting the ‘Co-Curriculum’ page of the school website, www.warwickprep.com.
Please click on the link on the page www.warwickprep.com/thistermsactivities. You will
already have log-in credentials for your child/ren. If you are unable to remember your login
details, you can reset these on the front page of the VAE (http://mychq.net/warwickprep).
There is no need to contact the school office to reset your details.

The booking page will open for sign-up on Monday 15 March at 6.00pm and will close on
Thursday 18 March at 10.00am. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any activity requests
after this deadline so please do book in during this sign-up period.

If you select two simultaneous activities through the Virtual Activities Environment, we will
automatically allocate a place in the club with the higher preference number, unless of course
the club is oversubscribed.

Attendance at some of the clubs is by invitation; this will be indicated by a green tick next to
your child’s name, However, those that are open to sign up will show in the VAE accordingly.
If your child wishes to withdraw from an invited activity, you cannot do this at the time of
requesting activities, please contact Mrs Crafts directly on (a.crafts@warwickprep.com) to
withdraw.

The cost of all activities will be added to your end of Summer Term fee account; no payment
should be sent to school. By requesting a place, you are committing to payment should
a place be allocated.

                                            ~2~
For an additional £3.90, children can be booked into After School Care at the end of an
activity; this includes a light tea. Parents who require before and after club care will only be
charged £3.90 once (inclusive of tea). ASC bookings should be made through the VAE.

When girls are involved in planned educational visits or we are aware in advance of dates
when clubs or activities cannot run (for example if the Main Hall is in use for another event),
no charge will be made to parents. However, we are unable to reimburse parents if their
daughter is chosen to represent the school in a fixture and the match clashes with a paid
activity or an event that does not involve the whole year group.

Activities will be confirmed via an email generated by the VAE as normal.

All activities will commence from Tuesday 20 April and the last week for most activities will
be the week commencing Monday 28 June. There are a few exceptions though and these
will be clearly listed on the electronic calendars when these are published. Once activity
places are confirmed, you may also log into the VAE where all session dates / cancellations
for your child’s activities will be listed.

Music Co-Curricular clubs will all be dismissed from the Music School main entrance. If you
need to drop-off or collect an instrument, please arrange a time with your child’s music
teacher as parents will not be allowed into the building unaccompanied.

Parents should note that whilst we endeavour to provide some consistency to the type of activities we offer, we
do not guarantee to run any club indefinitely or as part of a wider course. Similarly, we may need to change the
day on which an activity or club is offered from term to term, in order to ensure a good spread of activities for
pupils or for provider convenience.
