A Day in the Life

Summer Action

DUE TO OVERWHELMING DEMAND, PLEASE NOTE THAT THE BOOKING SYSTEM WILL BE TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE. WE WILL AIM TO RE-OPEN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

--

Warwick School provides an ever expanding range of holiday activities. Open to everyone, these courses provide a fun way to experience new or favourite activities.


Welcome to our Summer Action activities programme. Please see below for details of what's on offer, including dates and times of courses, age ranges, examples of activities included and costs. Also included below is information regarding how our summer courses will work to ensure children, parents and staff remain safe at all times whilst on site.

PLEASE NOTE: There is no tuck shop available for Summer Action. Please ensure that your child arrives with all the food/drink they need throughout the day, including a snack for breaktime, a refillable water bottle and a packed lunch. Please also be aware that the vending machines are also 'out of bounds' so no money should be brought on site. Thank you for your cooperation.

Please note: there are no Early Risers, Early Birds Swim or Night Owls options available for this period. All courses are running from 9.00am until 16.30pm.

As a special one-off, we are happy to offer our Summer Action courses for this holiday period at a reduced cost of £25 per day. To ensure we follow the latest Government guidelines regarding hygiene and social distancing, there are some changes we have had to make to our regular timetable. As a result there are some activities that unfortunately we are unable to offer at this time. We feel that this reduced daily rate reflects these changes, but please rest assured that we will continue to offer the highest quality childcare for your children that is achievable in the circumstances.

Please be aware that we have had to limit the number of places available in order to ensure Government guidelines regarding social distancing are met. Places are available on a 'first come, first served' basis. Once courses are fully booked, you can email Adrian Bevan at A.Bevan@warwickschools.co.uk if you would like to be added to the waiting list.

TO HELP MINIMISE THE RISK OF CROSS INFECTION, PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE ARE ONLY ACCEPTING FULL WEEK (5-DAY) BOOKINGS FOR THIS SUMMER PERIOD.

USEFUL INFORMATION
Please see below for information on how the days will be structured and our commitment to keeping you and your children safe whilst on site 

How the day will work
 

Drop off and Pick up

For Summer Action, please park in Warwick Junior School car park and follow signs for drop off and pick up: 

  • Drop off and pick up for Cygnets (Reception and Year 1) is via the exterior Sports Centre fire doors (off the Junior School car park)
  • Drop off and pick up for Year 2 to 7 is the Junior School playground (the black gates)

To encourage a staggered arrival and departure:

  • Drop off will be between 9.00am and 9.15am
  • Pick up will be between 4.15pm and 4.30pm 

When dropping off and picking up, please make sure you observe social distancing measures and use the 2 metre markers provided. Thank you for your cooperation.

Groups

Children and staff will be kept in their groups throughout the day and will not mix or crossover with any of the other groups during this time. This will ensure the safest possible environment for children and staff as they will interact only with others within their group. 

Each of the 5 groups (Cygnets, Swans, Kestrels, Herons and Eagles) will operate independently of the others. Staff members allocated to each group will stay with them throughout the day and will lead all activities for their group during that time.

Breaktimes and lunchtime for groups will be staggered across the day; again to ensure that there is no crossover of groups.

Staying safe on site
 

The safety of all children, parents and staff remains our primary concern. For Summer Action we will do everything within our power to ensure the highest possible safety standards, including:

  • Regular handwashing and use of hand sanitiser - all staff and children will be required to wash their hands before coming on site and, whilst on site, time will be allocated across the day to allow staff and children to do similar before and after every activity
     
  • Regular cleaning of all resources and touchpoints - we will ensure that all equipment and facilities are thoroughly cleaned before first use. Similarly, time and resources have been allocated to make sure equipment/facilities are cleaned after every use. Training has been provided for all Summer Action staff on the correct cleaning technique
     
  • Regular reminders regarding social distancing - whilst on site we will regularly reinforce the importance of social distancing for children, whether they are taking part in an activity, sitting down for lunch, or out to playtime. 
     
  • Planning of suitable activities for the children to enjoy whilst still staying safe - all of the activities we have planned have been carefully adapted so as to comply with Government Guidelines regarding hygiene and social distancing. Sport sessions will be 'skill based' and will be structured to avoid contact and proximity

Furthermore, we kindly ask that you familiarise yourself with our 'Do and Don't Guides' before arriving on site.

Guidance for children:

  • Let a member of staff know immediately if you develop any of the following symptoms during the day - a persistent cough, fever, loss of smell/taste, or shortness of breath
  • When coughing or sneezing, please make sure you do so into a tissue or (failing that) into the crook of your elbow. All tissues should then be disposed of into a rubbish bin, and your hands washed thoroughly afterwards
  • Wash your hands after every activity and use the hand sanitising gel provided
  • Wash your hands after going to the toilet and use the hand sanitising gel provided
  • Refill your water bottle using the water dispenser provided

  • Ensure that yourself and your children have washed their hands thoroughly before coming on site
  • Drop off and collect your children at the Warwick Junior School playground entrance (black gates)
