Changes to the way we work

Across our Children, Youth and Family Services we are following advice from local commissioners and falling in line with information provided to schools, in particular the guidance for schools, colleges and local authorities on maintaining educational provision,  published 19 March 2020 and updated 16 June 2020.
Our services will also be compliant with the restrictions announced by the government on 09 September 2020.

As the timelines are announced for the easing or further restricting of some lockdown measures we are working hard to prepare affected services to reopen where possible. Information and updates on our services will be posted here and on our social media platforms.

We are excited to announce our Breakfast and After School Clubs (except for Surbiton) are now open. You can book now via Magic Bookings

It is important to us that staff, parents and children returning to our club are confident that the provision is safe and we have relevant control measures in response to Covid-19.
With this in mind, please note the following changes;
