Coronavirus

We are gradually beginning to bring back our face to face sessions.  These will take place with strictly limited numbers (pre-booking is required) and we will also follow relevant Covid guidelines.  This will mean checking in to sessions in Botley School by scanning a QR code or leaving your phone number with us when you sign in for track and trace purposes.  Extra handwashing facilities will be available and additional cleaning of touch points such as sinks and toilets will take place.  All activities in Botley School will be in our outside space (which has plenty of shelter if the weather is bad).  We will also have use of the nursery playground too in order for us to spread out.    Masks will not be required outside, but we would ask that you do wear one if going inside to use the toilet.

We would ask that you DO NOT attend any sessions if you or your child are feeling ill or showing any coronavirus symptoms.

This is a difficult time for us all and we hope that you and your families can keep safe.
