Staffing, Safeguarding and Health and Safety

Staffing follows a ratio of 1:8 for infant aged children (Reception, Year 1 and 2) and a ratio of 1:10 for junior aged children (Years 3, 4,5 and 6). The majority of our staff are first aid trained and staff, who are responsible for food preparation or food handling currently hold a basic food hygiene qualification.  


In accordance with safeguarding arrangements, all staff involved in the running of the Grove Vale's Holiday Club have current enhanced DSB clearance. All staff follow existing school policies and procedures for safeguarding, child protection and the code of conduct. Where ICT equipment is used, they also follow the school’s Online Safety policy and procedures.


The Holiday Club believes that the health and safety of children is of paramount importance and follows the school health and safety policies. The Holiday Club understands the importance of vigilance to fire safety hazards and all staff receives training annually. In case of a fire, the club follows the school fire policy to ensure consistency for the children.


Feedback from parents / children

At the end for each holiday club, we send out feedback forms out to parents to get their thoughts on how the club was ran, the children’s likes and dislike and ideas that parents / children may have for future clubs. 



Here are some of the comments that parents have made about the club.


“The club team are amazing. Thankyou so much to everyone. This would not be possible without your dedication and hard work. I'm looking forward to the summer holiday club now. It's difficult juggling work and childcare and getting annual leave is difficult. This club not only relieves pressure it makes you feel less guilty for working as you know your child is having fun and being well looked after by a super fantastic team”.

“I appreciate how hard the team works on organising and carrying out all of these activities. It really helps children and their parents”.

“My child loved his time at holiday club and there isn’t a day that he didn’t enjoy. It’s clear to see that a lot of thought and effort had gone into planning activities so the children were entertained throughout. Even I wanted to attend! A huge thank you to you Mr Dodd and all the other staff who were involved in executing an impressive holiday club!

“I Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to Mr Dodd and his team for making holiday club so exciting for the children. My daughter really looks forward to the holiday clubs - more than school time :) She wakes up very early in the morning, gets dressed on her own and then at 7:30 wants to leave the house! There's so many activities the kids do and it's really nice to collect my daughter at the end of the day and listen to all the exciting things she has been up to. She has a few friends in her class that also attend. As a parent you will be happy knowing your child is happy.”
