About the Organisation

Targeted Holiday Playschemes are specialist services for disabled children and young people and we deliver this contract as Lead Partner with 3 other organisations; KIDS, Bath Opportunity Pre-school and Fosse Way School.

October 2020

We are pleased to be able to run our October half term playschemes this year. As with the summer we are not sending out booking forms but have attached a letter to this email regarding the playschemes. In order to request a space for your child at one of our playschemes, we ask that you read the letter carefully and return it to bookings@bathareaplayproject.co.uk signing it and answering the 6 questions and confirming that you will abide by our Covid-19 safety conditions in order to help us minimise the risks and to keep staff and children safe. Please respond by Friday 2nd October if you wish to request a space.

We have been working hard to ensure we are compliant with government guidelines and have had to reduce the number of spaces available each day. Please let us know which playschemes you would be interested in and we will allocate days depending on capacity and the needs of your child. Our Threeways playschme and FosseWay playschemes will each be running for 3 days, whilst BOP, Hut & KIDS will each run for 2 days during the half term holiday. We will try to offer you as many days as possible but due to demand we are not able to guarentee how many days this will be.

We will be placing children in "bubbles" as we did in the summer as the government has asked schools/settings to limit the number of contacts that children have by using these. These are small groups with the same members. Children cannot move between bubbles. Depending on demand, you may be offered one or more days at playscheme. The same children will be in your child’s bubble every time they come to one playscheme. This worked well in the summer and whilst we cannot guarantee social distancing we will encourage children to stay 2m apart, providing play opportunities and different activity areas for children so they can play at a distance. We will use the outside spaces for play as much as possible and all resources will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between bubbles. Please do ensure your child has appropriate clothing each day. Please note that a few staff will need to work across all bubbles e.g. the Playleader.

Please also remember: Do not send your child where they are showing any symptoms of Covid-19. Where anyone attending a session shows any symptoms, then all children will need to be collected and the setting closed. All staff and children will then need to isolate for 7 days.

To express and interest in days, please email bookings@bathareaplayproject.co.uk to request a booking form and declaration.
