From September 2022 bookings can no longer be made via Miss Latters on the clubs mobile phone. Parents must book their child's place on ParentPay providing they have credit in their ParentPay account. Please find listed below FAQ's:
Is there a deadline for bookings/amendments?
Yes. All bookings and changes must be made by 4.30 pm each Friday for each new week. For example, if you need to book or cancel your child's place for Monday morning (i.e. Mon 6th June) and you attempt to do this on-line on Saturday evening (Sat 4th June), then you will not be able to make this booking. The reason for this deadline is to ensure the club is adequately staffed and resourced for the week ahead.
How far in advance can I book my child's place?
100 days is the maximum. Parents can choose to book a week ahead, a month, half-termly or termly. As long as there is credit in the account, parents can make bookings.
How to book a place?
1. Log into ParentPay and select the child you wish to make a booking for
2. Select ‘make or view’ bookings
3. Select the session i.e. ‘morning club’ or ‘afterschool club’
4. Select the days you want to book (a summary will be appear bottom of the page)
5. Review the booking summary and select ‘confirm booking’
6. Repeat the process if you would also like to book an ‘afterschool’ session
All bookings must be confirmed and paid for within 2 hours of selecting them - failure to do so will result in the bookings being automatically cancelled.
Do school accept Childcare Vouchers & HMCR TFC payments (tax free childcare)?
Yes. We accept payments from the following childcare voucher providers; Edenred, Fideliti, Bravo Benefits, Computershare, Kiddivouchers and Care-4. If you are registered with a childcare voucher provider, once you make a payment to them, they will send the school office confirmation of this payment. Upon receipt of this notification the school office will then 'credit' the pupil's account as close as reasonably possible to receiving the remittance/notification. If you pay via the HMRC TFC scheme your payment will only be processed if you inform Mrs Mulla firstname.lastname@example.org with the date of payment and the amount. This is because unfortunately the HMRC scheme do not send receipts to schools.
Please bear in mind that the school office is closed during school holidays, so if voucher or TFC payments are made during the holidays, your account will not be credited until school re-opens. Planning ahead and being in credit at all times is key to ensuring you can book at any time!
What if I miss the deadline and need to book in an emergency?
We understand that in emergencies late appointments will be required. Please contact the school office in these urgent circumstances on 652-4909 or on 0745894484. Swops, changes or forgetting to book are not considered emergencies and bookings will not be taken in these instances.
