Merlin’s Club is run by the school and therefore operates under the same policies and procedures as Manston St James C of E Primary Academy. However, as the club operates a small number of additional policies are necessary. Further details of our policies and procedures can be found in the Merlin’s Club Policy Handbook which can be obtained from the school office.
