Registration

If your child is not a pupil at King Edward Primary School, your child can only attend the club once they have been registered. Registration forms contain details of your child, emergency contact/safe collection information and various parental consent forms.  Please contact OOSC staff for a registration form.

Our OOSC is incredibly popular and has limited spaces available linked to space and staffing ratios.  We operate on a ‘first come first served basis’. The ultimate decision regarding allocation of spaces rests with the Headteacher.
