Fox Play/Breakfast club arrangements from January 2019

In light of the demand for more Fox Play/breakfast club  places and to accommodate inconsistent bookings, we have decided to meet this increased  demand Starting from next term, we will make Fox Play/breakfast club more flexible by employing more members of staff  enabling us to offer more spaces.  Fox Play spaces will increase from 35 to 50 on Mondays to Thursdays and 55 to 70 on Fridays . Breakfast club will increase from 30 to 40 everyday. In order to do this, we need to cover our extra staffing costs and therefore will be increasing the prices of sessions.
