Short Breaks COVID-19

Dear Parents and Carers


Following  Government advise and to reduce any risk to vulnerable children, the Council has made the decision to cancel all term-time groups and our clubs planned for Easter. The safety of our children and the reduction of virus transmission is paramount. This will take effect as of today (Friday 20/03/2020).


We are still considering whether the May Whitsun week play schemes should go ahead or not. You will be informed as soon as we can best assess the situation for those dates.


The Government have strongly advised against social mixing, particularly those who have underlying health conditions. We are also concerned about the reduced number of staff who work at short break venues due to isolation now and in the coming days.


If you have any urgent needs please call the Early Help Team on 0300 555 2866.

If you have an allocated SW with the Children with Disabilities Team please contact them on 01922 654634.


Please be aware that our staff are also under pressure from the current virus situation and we, too, may be experiencing reduced staffing.


As soon as we can begin to plan for short breaks for the summer holidays we aim to provide early information as soon as possible.


Thank you for your understanding on this matter.


Kind regards


The Short Breaks Team
