About us

The club is a community based, non-profit making organisation, managed by a committee of parents/guardians elected at the club’s annual general meeting. This ensures that major decision making is in the hands of the parents who use the club. The management committee is responsible for the policy and practice of the club, including the rules and charges and employing staff.

The Meadows Out of School Club is registered with Ofsted. The registration is available for parents to see on request.

All staff working for The Meadows Out of School Club have been checked through the Disclosure and Barring Service. It is also a registration requirement that staff follow the South Gloucestershire Child Protection procedure for independent day care providers. We also comply with the data protection act and will not release any information regarding your children outside of the club.
