You can register your interest using the extended school registration form and return to the School Office. The service is currently oversubscribed and your application will be placed on a waiting list. When a place becomes available the Extended School Co-ordinator will contact you. You will need to inform the school each year if you wish to remain on the waiting list.
To register each term for enrichment clubs, please complete the form from the school office and return with your payment to the Extended School Co-ordinator on a specific day that you will be notified together with the Activity timetable for that term via ParentPay Email.
We are a Healthy School and a supper is provided to children in the After School Club. Caterlink who are an Islington Borough approved provider provide a cooked meal each day with fruit and salad. A seasonal menu is available in the after school club and also on the School’s Website
How to register: All enrichment clubs are booked at the start of each term. Letters are sent out to all parents advising them of the clubs and they are then available to book via ParentPay.
AFTER SCHOOL CHILDCARE
FOR LOW INCOME WORKING FAMILIES
Some low-income working families find it hard to pay for childcare – although tax credits can really help, not everyone is entitled to them and, even if you are, they may not cover all your costs.
So St Joseph’s is offering a limited number of places with a discount of £2 per day (ASC). If your family’s income is £24,999 or lower (gross – before tax) and you are in paid employment, you can apply. These are available on a first come first served basis and limited to one per family.
To apply for one of these places, please contact Louise Palmer via email email@example.com and ask for the application form
You will need to complete a simple application form and provide original documents to prove:
- your address (utility bill)
- income (weekly or monthly pay slips or audited accounts/HMRC self-assessment form if self-employed).
- your child’s identity (birth certificate or passport).
