Aftercare

Aftercare is a service provided to parents who do not have supervision available for their children after school. See please the information leaflet. Parent information is already captured on d6. This application is to have essential information available in hard copy in our Aftercare file in case of an emergency and as part of the contract between parents and Aftercare.

Aftercare Policy

1. Policy Purpose

  • The purpose of this policy is to describe the offering of an independent aftercare at PEPPS Motheong by staff members.

2. Policy Statement

It is the policy of PEPPS Motheong to provide aftercare services at schools where the demand exists and the provision of the service is economically viable. PEPPS Motheong offers an aftercare facility where children feel happy and cherished. Good communication between parents/guardians and aftercare facilitators ensures that children are happy at PEPPS Motheong’s Aftercare. PEPPS Motheong’s aim is to create a relaxed and structured environment where children can work and play. PEPPS Motheong is dependent on parents’/guardians’ positive support to motivate their children to respect the authority of their caregivers. In this way other positive characteristics, such as honouring of norms and values, which contribute to the PEPPS Motheong ethos, will develop.

3. Objectives

The objectives at PEPPS Motheong Aftercare are to provide:

  • A safe homely environment where children can relax and thrive under the supervision of qualified and caring staff during
    the school week after school hours.
  • A system which ensures that children will attend extramural activities punctually and safely.
  • The Aftercare will not provide meals. Parents provide a sandwich or something to eat/drink for their child.
  • Exposure to voluntary stimulating activities.
  • Regular meetings to ensure healthy interaction with parents/guardians.
  • Facilities which allow for study, healthy free play and relaxation.
  • Help with homework during a particular time slot, although the final responsibility for checking and revision rests with the
    parent/guardian.
