We will update this page with any new information for families about coronavirus as it relates to our Club.
NOTICE OF CLOSURE
We are writing to let you know that, in line with a recent Government announcement, we will be closing the breakfast club on Friday 20th March 2020.
The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson announced on Wednesday 18th March "..that after schools shut their gates from Friday afternoon, they will remain closed for most pupils – for the vast majority of pupils - until further notice".
Therefore it is with much regret that we
will be serving our last breakfast on Friday until further notice. Going forward we will update you regularly and aim
to communicate important information as soon as is appropriate. There will be some detail regarding fees that need to be sorted and we shall be in touch to get these resolved.
All the staff are desperately disappointed that we have to close but we sincerely hope to greet you and the children at breakfast club again soon. We thank you for your continued support and as always please feel free to contact us to ask any questions you may have.

As most parents are, we are monitoring the guidance from Public Health England very carefully. There is updated guidance every day – sometimes several times a day as new cases in different parts of the world come to light. The government advice is currently for schools and clubs like ours, to remain open. We take the spread of any virus very seriously, ensuring staff are washing their hands regularly as well as being vigilant in monitoring pupils for signs of any obvious symptoms, as detailed by Public Health England.
We will look to implement the advice from all relevant authorities. Following the increased number of cases in the UK, and the change in risk from Public Health England from low to moderate, the club will be implementing some temporary additional strategies to try and limit the risk of infection being spread.
We will be communicating regularly with parents by email to ensure all parents are aware of the available guidance.
Ensuring clean hands
We are ensuring that regular hand cleaning takes place. Staff will be hand washing with soap and where appropriate children will be encouraged to also hand wash with soap. Additionally, the use of anti-bacterial hand wipes by adults and children will be encouraged and, when available, hand sanitisers will also be provided.
We do not want children to be overly worried or panic so we will only be encouraging them to focus on good hygiene.
If you have any concerns or questions please speak to a member of staff or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
