We are looking forward to welcoming all our children – old and new – back to Budeez for the new term.
We have some new staff who have joined our team as well – please say hello to Maxine, Charlotte and Sandra when you see them in Club – we are sure they will settle in quickly.
Sadly Gill Osborne is taking a leave of absence while she is undergoing treatment for cancer – she hopes to be back with us soon.

Safeguarding and Child Protection
All staff have received updated safeguarding and child protection training during the summer. Cheshire East has released a new ‘model’ Safeguarding Policy and some new safeguarding posters which you will find on the parents document page and in Club displayed on the parent noticeboard.

How to book ad-hoc spaces
If you need an extra session – or more – you can apply using an ‘Ad Hoc Booking form’ which you will find on the parents documents page of the new Budeez website – https://budeez.co.uk/parents/useful-documents/
Please complete the form and return it to Sarah – email@example.com.
I will check with Gill first to make sure we have space on the registers and then reply with confirmation and an invoice (for immediate payment) as quickly as possible. Please do not assume we have a space for your child until it has been confirmed by me.

Staff might put a pen in your hand and ask you to complete paperwork during the first weeks back in Club. It is a requirement of our registration and insurance that we have fully completed documentation in place… thank you for your support!

Invoicing and payments
Outstanding September invoices are due for payment NOW!
I think I have registered with all the voucher companies on my list – if you need Busy Bees please set me up as your provider and they will contact me.
If you are having any problems with making payments please contact me – firstname.lastname@example.org.
