The OWLS Club provides healthy, nutritious meals that will assist children learning good eating practices for the future.
Fresh fruit and/or vegetables are offered with all snacks, and fresh drinking water is available at all times.
Fresh food is obtained regularly and stored in conjunction with Food Hygiene regulations.
Children with specific food allergies and intolerances can be catered for following individual discussion with parents.
In all cases of illness – please notify the school directly.
It is particularly important that any cases of infectious diseases common in childhood (such as chicken pox, measles, whooping cough, gastro intestinal upsets etc) are notified in order that the spread of infection can be minimised.
Parents will be contacted immediately should their child show signs of illness during the session. ONLY prescribed medication can be given at the Club.
Collection of Children/Security
Children can only be released for collection to adults named on the entry record form, unless a prior arrangement has been made.
