Breakfast and After School Club (Yeti's)
Our wraparound care also known as 'Yeti's' is available for the children of Slade Primary School before the start and after the finish of the school day. Yeti's is based in our Small Hall in Deacon House and the children are looked after by members of the Slade team.
The morning session is available from 07:30 - 08:40 daily with a breakfast of cereal and fruit provided. The charge for the morning session is £4.20 per child.
After School Club
There are different options available for those wishing to attend after school.
The first option is from 15:30 - 16:30. This is booked as a 'S' Short session. A simple snack is provided for those attending. The price for this session is £4.20.
The second option is from 15:30 - 17:30. This is booked as a 'L' Long session. An additional light tea is available for those attending the second hour. The price for this session is £8.60.
The third option is open to those children who attend an After School Activity (https://www.slade.kent.sch.uk/page/?title=Extra%2DCurricular+Clubs&pid=25) before going to Yeti's; typically this will be between 16:30 and 17:30. To secure this option, you must first book a Long 'L' session and then inform us by email to firstname.lastname@example.org of the days you require the After Activity session. Our team will then amend your booking which will appear on your SCOPAY account shortly after as an 'A' Code. The cost of this option is £4.40. An additional light tea is available for those attending the second hour.
There are 40 places available for both Yetis Breakfast club and After School Clubs.
Paying and Booking Yeti's Sessions
Sessions at the wraparound provision must be paid for, in advance, via the Tucasi SCOPAY portal, not at this time via Arbor, cheque or cash. For details on how to login to SCOPAY, see the link at the foot of this page below.
You can use the same online account to link any children you have at Slade and to link children at other schools who use the Tucasi secure scopay.com system. If you have received more than one account access email because you have multiple children at Slade, create your online account as below for the first child and then link the second child using the instructions in the I already have a scopay.com account section.
Loading Your Account with credit
All sessions must be paid for in advance either by card, with funds being loaded onto the account or by childcare voucher.
Using Government Tax Free Childcare Voucher system (National Savings)
If you go to https://www.gov.uk/apply-for-tax-free-childcare it will take you through the steps to register. You choose Slade School with Hearing Impairment Unit (886/2155) and then the payments will come through to the school bank account.
Once you are registered, you transfer the payments to them, it is topped up and then arrives in our bank account a few days later. To avoid disappointment, please always make sure this is done well in advance of the booking window opening for the following term (typically a week before the present term ends). This date is always advertised in the school newsletter in advance.
Once we have received the payment into our bank account, the voucher is processed and the credit is added to your account. Please let us know via email@example.com if you register and what your account reference is so your payments are correctly identified in the bank statement. In addition, if using both the Breakfast Club and the After School Club, it helps if you let us know how much of the payment you would like using on each as they are separate 'purses' on SCOPAY.
Other Childcare Voucher Systems
If you use any other older style voucher system, please contact us directly via firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the system provider and account number.
