St Benedict’s C of E VA Junior School Benedict Street, Glastonbury, Somerset BA6 9EX Tel: 01458 831811 Fax: 01458 832261 E-mail: ‘We aim to unlock the potential of everyone’ 9th September 2013 Dear Parents Once again the staff of St Benedict’s are pleased to offer a range of extra-curricular activities for the children to take part in. The clubs, as detailed on the timetable overleaf, will run every week throughout the Autumn Term with the exception of gardening club and world club as detailed below. All after school clubs listed will run from 3.15 – 4.00 p.m. except for Street Dance which will finish at 4.15 p.m. Considering the safety of your child is of the utmost importance to all our staff we know you will help us by:  Collecting your child after the club. No child should walk home unaccompanied. It is important for parents to remember that in a few weeks children will be walking home in reduced daylight. 

Phoning the office/seeing the teacher in charge/writing a letter if your child is unable to attend or does not wish to come anymore. 

In the event of a club being cancelled due to poor weather or other circumstances, we will endeavour to contact you, however please feel free to call the school office and check whether your child’s club is happening. If we are unable to contact you, your child will stay with the teacher until the normal collection time.

All clubs will start the week beginning Monday 16th September so we would appreciate you returning the permission slips as soon as possible please. Please discuss the opportunities with your child of joining a school club, or two maybe, and fill in the permission slip to indicate their chosen club/s. Should any clubs be oversubscribed places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. St Benedict’s have a very committed, multi-talented, enthusiastic staff. Please ensure your child benefits from the wide range of activities on offer. Yours sincerely,

Steve Gumm Headteacher
