Red Balloon were due to be running an after school club. However, I received an e-mail during the summer holiday saying that, due to poor uptake, they were not able to operate the provision. Four families had signed up &, in order to be financially viable, they needed twelve families. It is a shame that we aren’t able to go ahead at this time with this. As school settles into its routine this term we will be asking parents, & particularly Reception parents, if they would find this type of provision useful. Depending on responses we may continue to liaise with Red Balloon regarding after school provision in the future.
