GCP Out of School Club

Newsletter: April 2016

Welcome back to a new term. We hope you have all had a good Easter break. 

Discovery Vine App

We are assuming if you are reading this then you have managed to download our new Discovery Vine App. We are using this to improve our communication links between staff and parents with monthly newsletters and push notifications/messages that you will receive once you have registered. You can use the app to view staff profiles, download our prospectus or view a copy of our policies and procedures. You can also use it to change your booking pattern or update your registration details if you wish. This new form of communication is still under development so any ideas you might have to improve it will be greatfully received!


We are pleased that Kate Valiant will start working in our After School Club from Monday 25th April. Kate works in school as a teaching & welfare assistant so will be a valuable addition to our staff team. 

We have 3 student volunteers working in our After School Club this term. They are from Garstang Community Academy and are working towards The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. Emily is helping us out on a Monday, Will on a Wednesday and Joseph on Thursdays. 

Toys and Equipment

You might have noticed that we have had a good clear out over the Easter Holidays (and that the cupboard is tidy!) We are in the process of re-stocking with new toys and equipment. 

Extra Curricular Activities

As the school’s clubs re-commence after the break we respectfully ask that you inform us if your child / children will be taking part in any of these. We work very closely with school staff at the end of the day to ensure all children get to where they are meant to be, but it can be a very hectic process for us and the school if we have to keep asking which children are in the clubs.

Please also remember to let us know if you are collecting your child from school on a day when they are booked into the After School Club.
