Southfields Primary School

Explorer Admissions

Registration of pupils is essential before pupils can join the Explorers Club or parents can book sessions on line via ParentPay. Please inform the Club manager as soon as possible of any changes in the information you have provided for your child.


Please complete the registration form and return it to the school office.


The Explorers Club has space for 40 pupils at each session and once the sessions are booked there unfortunately will not be any additional spaces offered. Therefore we advise prompt booking and payment to secure places 48 hours in advance. You are not able to book any sessions without prior payment. If we exceed the 40 places limit we will contact you to inform you that you are on our waiting list.


Payment and Booking


Once you have registered your child with the Club you will be able to book and secure places online through ParentPay. Payment is made at point of booking. Vouchers can be used by payment to the school who will credit your ParentPay account after the Vouchers have cleared. You are not able to book any sessions without prior payment.

Information regarding Working Tax Credit is available from the School Finance Secretary.

Southfields Explorer Club does not offer sibling discounts but aims to keep prices affordable.


Charges from September 2015:


            Breakfast Club daily charge (including breakfast)                    £3.50

            After School Club daily charge (including snack)                     £7


Children that are not booked in to the Explorers Club will be escorted to the school office and a holding fee will be charged. Please make sure that if you are unavoidably late you contact the school (on 562873) or Explorers Club (on 562873 extension 216) and make alternative arrangements for collection of your child.


Children that are collected from the Explorers Club late (later than the Club closing time of 6pm) will generate an additional late collection fee. The late pick up charge is:


£3.50 for each 5 minutes of lateness you enter per child. That is, £3.50 as soon as you pass the collection time of 6pm and a subsequent £3.50 for each five minutes until collection. The fee will show as ‘Explorers Breakfast’ on the named child’s ParentPay account.
