UPDATE; 18th February 2021
Dear Hornimans Families
We are now in a lockdown and we have had to change our plans. The playground will now be closed to timed session larger bubbles but we are hoping that this will change depending on government instruction. Staff will be supporting children and young people who are vulnerable with face to face booked sessions and over the phone during this period.
We will keep you all updated. Whatever happens,
We will update you on opening times and to book the slots for future bubbles once lockdown is over.
FOR FUTURE REFERENCE
Please take a moment to read the information below to assist us with your role in protective measures to prevent the transmission of the Covid 19. Slots will still be pre booked and limited to children and young people who are already registered and known to the playworkers.
Hornimans Adventure Playground will operate a closed access service, which means children will not be permitted to leave the playground until their session is over (no popping to the shops or park).
Booking: If your child is registered at Hornimans and known to the playworkers, Please contact Hornimans on 07400458572 to make a booking or be assigned to a bubble. Parents will not be allowed on site and the gate will be closed during sessions. There will be 8 -15 young people per bubble per session. All children over 11 will be required to wear a mask or carry one with them.
Consent: Before a child can play, the parent must sign a consent form and registration forms updated.
Thorough risk assessments of the building and contents in line with government guidelines for Out of School Settings/Guidance for managing Outdoor Playgrounds and Outdoor Gyms have been conducted.
