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

Parent communication pack

All out of school clubs need to provide parents with a summary of rules, procedures, times, prices etc. The simplest approach is to gather these items together as a basic handbook. We provide a template for a straightforward parent handbook for you to edit and modify as appropriate. The template handbook consists of 10 pages, but you can add or remove sections as appropriate for your own setting, so the final length will vary.

Out of school clubs need to regularly survey their 'customers'—children and their parents/carers—to assess how the the club is peforming and what areas could be improved. The Parent Communication Pack includes short surveys for both audiences.

When you buy the Parent Communication Pack you will be able to download the templates and start editing them straightaway. The template handbook and surveys are supplied in Microsoft Word format so that you can easily modify them as needed for your club.  If you are unsure whether your word processing application can open Word documents, find out more about software compatibility.
