Supporting school communities beyond the classroom is an increasingly important part of school provision as more and more families need the support that such wrap-around care can provide.
This extra-curricular provision has become an integral part of the home-school relationship, and it needs careful planning and management to ensure it meets the needs of everyone involved.
With this in mind, we are delighted to be able to offer schools using the Firefly Parent Portal the ability to be able to set up and manage wrap-around care activities from within Firefly. With the nature of these clubs meaning that attendance is likely to be different each day, they are often one of the most complex aspects of school activities to manage. This is why we are so pleased to be able to offer this facility within the Parents Booking feature in Firefly.
Every Firefly school’s Parents Booking account now has a new “Create Wraparound” button in their Events and Clubs tab. This will give access to a calendar interface where parents can choose which dates they would like to sign their children up for before and after school clubs.
