To protect the privacy of our children, mobile phones and cameras are not to be used by visiting adults within the school grounds and buildings..
The entrance to the Funzone is through the pedestrian gate at the front of the school, walk through the playground to the rear of the school for the patio door entrance to Funzone. Children are not allowed to walk round unaccompanied. Children remain the responsibility of the parent/carer until they are handed to a member of the Funzone team.
We accept no liability for the damage or loss of any personal items whilst attending Funzone.
We will give you one month’s notice of any change in the fee schedule or any change in these terms and conditions.
