Can the parents watch?

What are the payment rules?
We offer 10 sessions for £70 (Lunch club) and £90 (After school club).
For insurance reasons, parents need to pay before the first session or we cannot accept the children.
We also strongly suggest that you buy the entry package; it contains the 3 Activity books (1 per term which is given to the child at the beginning of each term) and we we use these and the songbook at each session. The entry pack is a one off fee of £19.
The student is responsible for their booklet and our teachers write a note on the last page of the book to ensure that the child participated in the club - it might have a comment too.
The activity book is essential and parents need to be sure that their child brings it to every session. If it's lost or damaged we can provide another one at £5 fee.
Can I cancel my membership?
After the first session, yes. If for any reason parents do not wish their child to continue, we offer a refund for the full membership, less £5 for admin fee. We also refund the booklet as long as it's in perfect condition.
We cannot, however, refund membership after the second session.
