We accept all forms of childcare vouchers. If you require account details please contact us.

Please remember when doing so, to provide a reference of your surname and the title or abbreviation of the club your child is attending. This is not always possible so dont worry if you are not given the option.

Terms & Conditions
After-school Club Prices

The charges per pre booked session (inclusive of refreshments) are specific to each club and can be obtained from Head Office.
Ad Hoc places are available but need to be booked and paid for over the phone via Head Office.  To guarantee a place at an After School Club, you will need to book for a certain number of fixed days each week for a whole term.

Registration

All parents/carers must complete our online Registration Form in full before a child can be accepted at a club. Any changes to the information contained on the Registration Form, whether it be contact details, medical details, change of address, etc., must be notified in writing by the parent/carer as soon as possible to our Head Office.

Payment for Sessions Booked/Attended and Penalties

Occasional bookings must be paid for on the day, by calling our Head Office on 01865 594324

Changes to booked sessions

Once a regular booking is made, it will be carried forward to the next term unless otherwise instructed, in writing, the term before you wish to make any changes. If the club is forced to close because of circumstances beyond our control (e.g due to snow/floods or Strike action), we will not be able to refund fees.

Booking additional /occasional sessions

All additional sessions requested by parents / carers are subject to availability as we must ensure that we have sufficient staff on site. No parent/carer should consider a booking as being accepted until payment has been made and the booking confirmed by one of our staff at Head Office.

Children who turn up at the club to attend additional sessions without the parent/carer first booking through Head Office will be taken to the school office, where a parent will be called to come and collect them

The responsibility for payment of all fees, charges and penalties lies at all times with the person who has made the booking.

Failure by Oxford Active Ltd to make a written or verbal request for payment of fees does not constitute an excuse or reason for late or non-payment.

Penalties for Late Collection

It is the responsibility of all parents/carers collecting children to do so promptly at the end of the session.

Failure to do so will expose the parent carer to the payment of a financial penalty and will constitute a breach of the terms and conditions, Oxford Active Ltd to exclude the child from subsequent sessions.

Persistent late collection of your child will incur a penalty charge of £5 for every 15 minutes or part of 15 minutes after closure of the club

The penalty must be paid before the child is able to return to the club.

Where the penalty is outstanding, and further sessions have been booked and paid for by the parent/carer, Oxford Active Ltd reserve the right to exclude the child, until the penalty is paid, without issuing a refund for sessions unattended.
