The Hazelwood Fun Club

For 12 weeks a year, over the Easter and Summer holidays, often for a week at Christmas (however, this is dependent on when Christmas Day falls) and most half terms, Hazelwood plays host to the Hazelwood Fun Club. Dates that the Fun Club is running are published as far in advance as possible and are listed below.

The Hazelwood Fun Club often follows a weekly theme with daily activities both indoors and outdoors (weather permitting). Our activities are planned weekly in consultation with the children and make full use of Hazelwood School's facilities including the indoor swimming pool, tennis courts and sports fields. Time is allowed in each day for snacks, refreshments and quiet play.  There are occasional off-site trips planned and visits to the Fun Club by external individuals and organisations. These dates, along with any additional costs, are pre-publicised as appropriate.  
Hazelwood Fun Club is open ONLY to children who attend Hazelwood School's Oak to Year 8 cohorts. Activities are carried out in age group teams. The Fun Club embraces the National Playwork Values which place the child at the centre of the play process, empowering him or her to to explore through play, make choices of their own and play and develop at their own pace and in their own way. Our mix of staff have experience of working with children and young people and meet the required Ofsted qualifications.
As the Hazelwood Fun Club is open exclusively to pupils of Hazelwood, HFC charges now appear on the termly bills, in arrears, in the same way as other termly extras. You will no longer have to settle the charges before the club starts. The charges are still eligible to be settled with Childcare Vouchers and will be marked on the bills with the (CV) suffix, the same as all the other eligible extras. The deadline for booking, however, remains the same and will be clearly marked on the HFC booking forms.  All sessions booked, before or after the deadline, and then subsequently cancelled, will be subject to the full charge. 
Children love the Fun Club, meeting up with their friends and having the chance to make new ones. As a result, it is very popular and places are filled very quickly. The Parents' Handbook contains all the information you need about the Fun Club, how the day is organised and how to get involved. The Booking Form can be downloaded by clicking the link below.  A cut-off date by which places should be booked is included. Observation of this deadline is essential in allowing the school to staff the Fun Club in line with required ratios.

Do please remember that the Fun Club is a nut free zone.  All items brought in for lunch or for snack time cannot contain nuts. This includes sandwich fillings such as Nutella and Peanut Butter.  Regretfully, any items found to contain nuts will be removed.  Your children may go hungry!
