  • On arrival, there will be one staff member waiting to register your child. Your child will then be accompanied by another member of staff to where the activity will take place. 
  • Although face coverings won't be mandatory, we do advise that masks are worn while walking through the reception area unless medically exempt or under 11 years of age.
