Ozzie's update - current arrangements in light of Coranavirus
We are carefully monitoring the current situation with Coronavirus.
As you will appreciate, a number of our school staff are not able to be in school following the guidance issued yesterday.
Ozzie's will remain open but if you are able to make arrangements not to use Ozzie's at this time, for example those working from home, there will be no charge for sessions not used from today until further notice.
This will help us to continue operating with our reduced staff levels.
If you are able to make alternative arrangements, please let us know by emailing the Ozzie's email address - firstname.lastname@example.org or if after 2.00pm, text the Ozzie's number 07712 217174
There may be other changes over the next few days, for example changes to pick up and drop off locations, but we will advise you if and when these changes are needed.
Our Out of School Hours provision is called "Ozzie's". The staff who run this provision are part of our Staff Team.
Carolyn Hayhurst started with us in September as our new permanent Ozzie's Manager. She will be supported by our Ozzie's team. Hopefully you will have had chance to meet Carolyn over the last few days. Carolyn is very much looking forward to working our Ozzie's children, parents and staff to develop our Ozzie's provision.
In the morning Ozzie's runs from 7.30am until the start of school. After school the club runs until 6.00pm. Ozzie's will runs holiday provision during most school holidays and on training days (see 2019-20 dates below).
An information sheet about Ozzie's, our terms and conditions and our registration and booking forms are attached below.

Payment can be made online via ParentPay or alternatively by using Childcare Vouchers or Tax Free Childcare (TFC). This can be done at any time as long as you keep your account in credit. You will not get an invoice but you can check your account details online at any time. If you pay with vouchers or TFC you may prefer to pay monthly in advance. If you need any information on your estimated monthly amount, please less us know.
Note that ParentPay will show a charge for each session you use at Ozzie's (including the date, session time and amount of the charge) which you can see on your detailed online statement.
All payments (online, voucher and TFC payments) will show on ParentPay. We will credit your account with Childcare Voucher payments once we receive a remittance advice from the voucher provider. For TFC, you need to send us a screenshot of your payment to ensure we can allocate this correctly.
The balance for Ozzie's will show when you log on - this is the amount of any payment made less any charges. A positive balance means your account is in credit (your account must be in credit when you use Ozzie's). A negative balance means your account is in arrears.
You can see the detailed charges and payments made by selecting "transaction history" from the menu and then "balance history". You then need to choose the Ozzie's payment item and select the date range you want to see.
Please contact the office if you need your ParentPay login details or a childcare provider reference or have any other questions on using ParentPay.
Please see the Frequently Asked Questions Document below, which has more information about paying for your child's Ozzie's sessions.
