Out of School Alliance - Help and Support for Out of School Clubs

Information packs

We know how hard it is to track down all the information that you need when you're starting up an out of school club. To make your life easier we have pulled together packs of essential policies and forms that all clubs need.

The template documents are supplied as editable Word files so that it is easy to tailor them for your own setting and then print out as many copies as you need.

Each pack is delivered via email as a downloadable .zip file so that you can access the template documentation immediately.

OOSA members enjoy a 20% discount on our template packs. Please log in in order to access the discounted prices.

If you are unsure which pack is right for you, see our Which template pack? guide.
