If your child attends from 4.30pm-5.50pm, the Link Club staff will support your child/children in completing any home learning which has been set, as we recognise that if your child is not being collected until later, this will help take the added pressure off you as parents to do this when they get home.
The children will have access to the IT suite in which they can go on and do their Reading Plus or Reading Eggs, any phonics, spelling or maths online home learning and will also have the adult to complete any reading with books too. The staff will also try to complete any Reading/ Homework diaries each evening where work has been finished. 
If you wish to use this service or get any further information then please email and arrange the bookings of sessions via ParentPay.
Our Office Team will support you and guide you through using ParentPay and any voucher schemes available.
