Welcome to HA4k

Sport Plus

Thank you for your patience and your continued support, we know many of you have been eagerly awaiting news of our plans for summer 2020.
The last few months have been incredibly challenging for families and businesses alike, we hope that you and your loved ones have been able to stay safe, and been able to enjoy some extended time together at home, when the opportunity has arisen.
 
Firstly we'd like to apologise for not being able to communicate our plans sooner, we have been very conscious of not wanting to pass on information that might leave people with more questions than answers. Additionally, we have been waiting on government guidance to find out if we would be allowed to open our doors, and what that would need to look like , if we were.
 
Over the past months, our brilliant team of staff, have made a number of plans (feels like a 1000!) based on 'what if' scenarios, and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank them for their efforts, sheer determination and commitment to providing a service over the summer.
 
Some of you may have read the latest government guidance for Out Of School Clubs, for those who have not yet seen this, the guidance can be found here
 
The wellness and safety of our staff, and children attending our setting, is always our top priority. Ultimately this has guided, and will continue to guide our planning for the summer months.
 
Our current plan, from Week commencing Monday 27 July is as follows:

1. We will operate at our Trent College site only during weeks commencing 27/7, 3/8, 10/8 and 17/8. We will not be operating from any other venues.
 
2. We will run , 2 x two day camps / bubbles each week.  CAMP ONE is Monday/Tuesday, CAMP TWO is Wednesday/Thursday. We will be closed on a Friday
 
3. Children can only book 1 of the bubbles each week, and must book and pay for both days, regardless of attendance.
 
4. Children cannot be booked onto consecutive weeks of camp. Example, if you make a booking for WC 27 July, you are unable to book again until WC 10/8
 
5. We will run a limited and modified version of our normal HA4K service, the activities we provide are of secondary importance to that of ensuring the safety of staff and children. In summary, children should be prepared for a slightly different experience on camp. We are incredibly limited with what we are able to offer under current guidelines. Rest assured, we will do our very best, but please manage your own and your child's expectations.
 
6. Places are very limited, additionally camps will only go ahead if there is sufficient demand. Each camp will have a booking deadline, and once closed will not re-open. As such, families are encouraged to read the booking details below very carefully.
 
7. The swimming pool will not be open for summer 2020
 
Please note we will do our very best to maintain strict bubbles and limit the mixing of children and staff within different bubbles. However, we cannot guarnatee that we will always be able to implement this. Please consider this information carefully, before finalising your decision to send your child to camp this summer. 
 
We would normally hope to give children attending camp, a broad range of activities and experiences to particpate in, quite simply, that is just not possible under current circumstances.  Again, please consider this information carefully, before finalising your decision to send your child to camp this summer. 

Please rest assured, we will do our very best, but we kindly ask that you manage your own and your child's expectations of what camp will be like this summer. Again, please consider this information carefully, before finalising your decision to send your child to camp this summer. 

A great deal of time and effort in recent months, has been spent working through a range of plans and scenarios. We feel the plan outlined above, gives the best opportunity for as many families as possible, to access some form of childcare from us, over the summer. 
 
Our team of staff, along with their families, have their own set of individual circumstances to deal with regarding coronavirus. Again, this has been at the forefront of the decisions we have taken for summer 2020.
 
What are timings for camps?
 
Children can be dropped off anytime between 8am and 9am
 
Short day collection is between 3.00pm and 3.30pm
 
Long day collection is between 4.15pm and 5.00pm

How much does it cost?
 
£25 short day
£30 long day
 
Any combination of pick up times can be booked for your two day camp.
 
Please note there are no sibling discounts available for summer 2020
 
Who can book?
 
Children aged 5-11 years old.
 
Please note - we are not required to prioritise bookings for key worker families, as such bookings are open to all families.
