Wickwar Out of School Fee Clarification during COVID-19 Closure

WOOSC will be giving all parents/carers a partial refund in the form of a credit note for the last week of term 4 due to our temporary closure from Monday 23rd March 2020.

Please see detailed below clarification around fees for Terms 5 & 6 should the school and/or Club remain closed after Easter.
  • If Wickwar Out of School Club are open as usual after what would have been the Easter break on 20th April 2020, then the invoices will come out to parents for regular sessions in Term 5 as normal.
  • If Wickwar Out of School Club is closed throughout Term 5 then parents will not be invoiced for any sessions.
  • If Wickwar Out of School Club open part way through Term 5 then parents will receive an invoice based on their current regular session bookings from the date we open to the end of the term (22nd May 2020).  This will be payable whether your child/children attend or not. 
  • If you wish to amend your sessions, once we reopen, you will need to give 1 terms notice in writing to amend your sessions as per our published terms and conditions (with the exception of sessions with a waiting list); unless we are already in Term 6 in which case our notice period could not be met & session charges would only be waived if they can be filled from our waiting list).
  • The above would apply to fees if we did not open until Term 6 (on or after 1st June 2020).
As a not for profit club, we are trying to be fair to parent/carers by not charging for sessions during the COVID-19 related closure whilst balancing the welfare of our staff members and ensuring the future of the club. Hopefully this has provides clarification, but should you have any questions make contact via the WOOSC phone number or our email woosc@hotmail.co.uk.
