- ASAs can only proceed if parents fill the supervision rota. Each parent must supervise one week per club that your child is attending. If your child is attending only one club, you will supervise once. If your child/children are attending multiple clubs, you will supervise once for each club and each child.
- After online registration has closed, a member of the PTA will email you to confirm your supervision date. Please check your email regularly. We try to be very fair and ensure all parents supervise.
- The purpose of the supervision rota is to ensure all children are safe and accounted for between 3.00pm and 4.15pm. Children must be collected promptly at 4.15pm.
- The role of the supervisor is to: sign in all of the club’s participants, call parent of any child who is missing, hand over the children to the teacher and note any absences, remain in school in case teacher needs your help for any reason, stand beside teacher as children are collected to ensure all are collected safely.
- If you are unable to supervise in your allotted week, it is your responsibility to contact the supervision volunteer to alert them and try to arrange for another parent to cover your supervision.
