There are an allocated number of participants for each activity and once the specific activity is fully booked, the system will not accept any more names. Please do not contact the school asking to be added to a fully booked activity. We understand your disappointment but cannot accommodate more than the allocated number to each activity.

If an activity leader has cancelled because of illness or another school commitment, they will, if possible, endeavour to make up the session.  If it is not possible to reschedule during the term, you will then receive a refund to your SchoolsBuddy account for that session.
