A final reminder that if you do not have a place secured in emergency school and you have any existing bookings with us, then we ask you to please over the weekend log on and cancel your bookings. This will help us to see accurate registers, but also if you would like to be refunded then this is the quickest and simplest solution.
If you have a place secured in emergency school, and need any bookings we ask you to either continue with pre-existing bookings made OR add bookings as usual so we know which children require our services each morning and afternoon.

A huge thank you to our service users for your patience with us following the last minute announcement Monday night.
The school has now allocated all emergency schools spaces and parents/carers should have received notification of the outcome of their emergency school applications.
If you have been granted an emergency school place and you have already made bookings through IPAL - Please do not alter these.
If you have been granted an emergency school place and need additional/new bookings then please go onto IPAL and make the relevant bookings needed.
If you did not receive an emergency school place and therefore would be unable to make/use any existing bookings with us we ask you to please log into IPAL and cancel any bookings made for the money to be refunded into your IPAL account. It will be the parent/carer responsibility to ensure cancellations are complete for funds to return to you. We have lifted the 5 day cancellation period to ensure this is easy to do for all parents/carers. If you are unsure on how to do this, we ask you follow this link:
The above link is also available on the school website in the Dragon Club section with useful 'hot to' video guides for all to follow.
If you have any further questions or queries we ask you please email us directly on email@example.com
