External Hire and Lettings at Applecroft School:
Applecroft School is committed to sharing its resources with the wider community and we are pleased to make our premises available for hire at any time they are not in use by our students for educational purposes.
The school hires a variety of its facilities which currently benefit a number of private users, community groups, clubs and organisations.
We are always interested in considering any ideas that you may have to put our facilities to good use out of school hours and would ask that you contact our Finance and Business Manager, Mrs Odette Coe, on 01707 323758, who will be able to discuss these ideas further with you.
Use of school premises for non-school activities:
Safeguarding at Applecroft School is paramount and 'everyone's responsibility'. The Governing Board will therefore need to ensure that those who hire our premises have appropriate safeguarding arrangements are in place to keep children safe.
All external hirers will be required to provide the Governing Board with a copy of their current safeguarding and child protection policy and procedures and assurances that relevant DBS checks have been carried out.
