To book places at After School Club please use the Registration of Interest form and procedure outlined above under ‘How to Apply.’
Parents and carers have the opportunity to alter the pattern of sessions booked every half term using this form
 Parents of Reception children new to school/and new starters in other years
Please note that you can only apply for SMILES club places when you have formally accepted your place with the Local Authority for the year your child is due to start in the Reception class. Due to high demand places are very limited, so we do recommend that you apply as soon as possible.  Unfortunately, only a small proportion of the new starters will get a place straight away at either club. For this reason, we strongly advise you also explore other childcare arrangements for the start of school.
If your child is offered a place they can only start attending when they begin school full time, not whilst they are having their settling in days. 
The  start date  for Reception pupils at SMILES  this year will be Thursday 20th September 2018.

Current fees  for Breakfast Club  are as follows:

£4 per session (from 8.00am, early drop off possible from 7.45am)

Current fees  (until Sept 18) for After School Club  are as follows:
£8 per session (3.20pm – 6.00pm)
Fees for ASC will increase to £9.50 in September.

We regret we are unable to refund fees should your child not attend booked sessions.
Fees are also not refunded for events outside of our control (such as snow days.)
