Bratton Before and After School Care operates under the umbrella of Bratton Primary School. The club has adopted the policies already in place at the school, full details of which can be found on the school website – www.bratton.wilts.sch.uk Where there is a variation to the school policy, or further clarification is required, this is detailed below.
Staffing Policy Staff are employed by the school and are subject to the school Employment Policies.
Behaviour Policy The Clubs have adopted the school’s Behaviour Policy and will employ the same sanctions and rewards as the school. Any incidences of bad behaviour will be reported by the Club Supervisor to the Head Teacher.
Safeguarding Policy Staff have completed safeguarding training and whilst they adopt the school policy, they have a stand-alone reporting procedure should they have any concerns over the safety of a child attending the Club. All staff have been given DBS clearance and have undertaken appropriate first aid training, although staff will not administer prescribed medication during sessions. Separate photographic consent has been sought for all pupils attending the Club.
Health and Safety Policy The Club operates under the school Health and Safety Policy and appropriate Risk Assessments have been undertaken for different aspects of the club. Pupil registration forms including allergies and emergency contact information is held by the Club Supervisor who has the use of a school mobile phone to use when necessary.
In the event of a fire, staff will escort pupils out of the Gazelle Room and exit the building via the external classroom entrance after which they will assemble on the playground. Appropriate fire evacuation signage is displayed in the Gazelle Room.
Food Hygiene Staff have completed optional Food Hygiene training and will ensure that children wash their hands before eating at the Club.
Charging Policy Billing is handled by the School Bursar and all club sessions must be paid for in advance. Staff are unable to accept payment for club sessions and all enquiries should be made in the School Office. Terms regarding the cost of sessions and cancellation policy are detailed on the booking form and have been issued to parents at the time of booking. Policy will be reviewed annually
