Late Fees; Your time is just as important as the students, school and parents that you are working with. Time is money, please arrive on time. We will be checking with the school weekly to confirm your arrival time; your start time is not optional and should be taken seriously. Like anything doctors appointments, exams or a full time job you should always aim to be 10-15 minutes early so that you can ensure you are there. If you are 5 minutes late there will be a £5 fine; each minute after that is another £1. If you are more than 30 minutes late you are expected to teach the club without pay. The schools and parents demand refunds when tardiness occurs. They are paying for the hour so they should get the full hour.
Missed Club; If you are going to miss a club 48 hours notice is required. If you cancel a club within 24 hours there will be a £45 fine. If you are able to produce a substitute for your club the fine will be waived. If you make a same day cancel or fail to show up there is a penalty charge or £120; this charge will be deducted from your upcoming pay. These fees are to be taken very seriously and are not negotiable. When you fail to deliver on the commitment of running your club business is lost, parents are angry, schools charge penalties on us and this makes School Clubs look unreliable.
