Wraparound Childcare CONSULTATION
Demand for wraparound childcare at school had been extremely low over recent years until now, primarily because of the strong arrangements that exist between school and Little Giants (and other childcare providers) which have always enabled a smooth transition between school and before/after school childcare.
I am aware that, over recent weeks, some families have been inconvenienced by the sudden and enforced closure of Little Giants. Unfortunately, an early resolution to this situation has not been forthcoming and, as we head into the summer, Little Giants remains closed. For this reason, the school is in the process of investigating offering its own wraparound provision.
For the school to potentially provide a high quality provision, it is not in the school's or children's best interests to provide a quick fix without full consultation with stakeholders and consideration of the statutory requirements around staffing, safer recruitment, safeguarding procedures, finances etc. Whilst these aspects continue to be investigated, it is very important that we ascertain an initial level of interest from parents for wraparound care at school next academic year. Please email me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 14th July at the latest with information on the following:
I would be interested in:
I would be willing to pay £____ per hour for this provision.
Before school, I would / would not expect breakfast to be included
After school, I would /would not expect a meal to be included
For the avoidance of doubt, this initial consultation process does not consitute a firm offer of childcare provision at Grendon CE Primary School from September 2017.
Many thanks for your cooperation and support, I look forward to hearing from you.
