What to bring

What to bring for Holiday Action

Please bring all inhalers, Epi-pens or any other medication in a clear, sealed, labelled bag and hand in at the Community Activities office upon arrival. If medication is required please complete the appropriate form under 'Medical' in our Additional information area.  This must be handed in on your child's first day of attendance.

As a result of recent Government advice regarding COVID-19 hand hygiene and social distancing, we are afraid that no portable gaming devices are allowed on site unless previously confirmed by management. This includes handheld consoles (e.g. Nintendo Switch) as well as tablets (e.g. iPads, Samsung, etc). 

Mobile phones are permitted but only for School Year 6 children or older. These are to be used only during the designated breaktimes and under staff observation. Phones must only be used to access age appropriate games. Social media, phonecalls, messaging and texting are not allowed.

With the exception of swimming and our Action Plus programme, we would kindly ask that children participate in all activities in the clothes/footwear they arrive in, as we would like to avoid any unnecessary changes of clothes throughout the day (e.g. gymnastics kit, football boots, etc). As such, we recommend that all children wear comfortable clothing that they can wear for the whole day, e.g. sportswear and trainers, and do not bring any extra clothes with them.

Please see below for items needed for each activity:

 Cygnets (Children in Reception and School Year 1)

Please bring plenty to drink (a refillable water bottle is recommended), a snack*, a packed lunch*, and a coat for playtime.

Please ensure that your child arrives dressed suitably for the weather - layers are always a good idea, including a hoodie or jumper, plus a waterproof coat in the event of rain. We will try to keep activities outdoors as much as possible, but if the weather is torrential then activities will take place indoors.

In the event of very hot weather, we ask that you provide sun cream for your child and apply before coming to the course. If re-application is required children will be required to do this and members of staff will supervise. Please also bring a sunhat.

We recommend that children wear comfortable clothing (e.g. sportswear and trainers).  

*please do not bring any foods containing nuts onto site

*please ensure grapes and cherry tomatoes are cut in half to avoid choking hazard.

*please note there is no fridge available.

'Super Six' Activities (Children in School Years 2 to 7)
 

Please bring plenty to drink (a refillable water bottle is recommended), a snack*, a packed lunch*, and a coat for playtime.

Please ensure that your child arrives dressed suitably for the weather - layers are always a good idea, including a hoodie or jumper, plus a waterproof coat in the event of rain. We will try to keep activities outdoors as much as possible, but if the weather is torrential then activities will take place indoors.

In the event of very hot weather, we ask that you provide sun cream for your child and apply before coming to the course. If re-application is required children will be required to do this and members of staff will supervise. Please also bring a sunhat.

We recommend that children wear comfortable clothing (e.g. sportswear and trainers).  

If your child would like to swim, then please bring a swimming costume and towel (goggles are optional). Children will need to be able to swim at least 1 width of a recognised stroke (not doggy paddle) to be allowed to take part. If your child is not a confident swimmer, then they will need to bring their own armbands (we cannot provide these due to current COVID restrictions). Our lifeguards will have the final say on whether children will be allowed to swim.

For Summer Action, the children will also have the opportunity to take part in Kayaking on select days.

If you would like your child to take part in wall climbing, then please ensure they arrive with clothes that cover their knees and elbows and trainers or sports shoes (please no short shorts, skirts, or unsuitable footwear such as flip-flops, crocs, etc.)

*please do not bring any foods containing nuts onto site

*please ensure grapes and cherry tomatoes are cut in half to avoid choking hazard.

*please note there is no fridge available.
