Please note that we have every intention of running the holiday playscheme. However, if we are advised by the Government (Public Health England) to close such provision as a result of the coronavirus infection we will have to follow this advice and cancel the playscheme. If that happens, parents will receive a full refund.

Important information

  • If you are a critical worker you will be asked to verify this on the first day of the scheme. Please bring work ID if you have it
  • All parents must bring proof of their address and of their children’s date of birth to the first session
  • If you book a concessionary place please bring current evidence of receipt of income support or income based job seekers allowance to your first session
  • We do not give refunds on places that have been booked once the scheme has started, even if your child is unable to attend the session
  • Trips will be offered to children over the course of the scheme – bookings and fees will be coordinated by the scheme on site
  • A late fee of £2 for every 5 minutes is payable if you are late in collecting your child
  • The play scheme will take no responsibility for lost or damaged property including mobile phones. Hand-held computer games and other electrical equipment will not be allowed at the play scheme
