Covid-19 News

Hello everyone,

Apologies for the update, but I wanted to let you all know the state of play around with CHIPS in light of the evolving situation around Covid-19.

As it stands we are looking forward to welcoming your children to our Easter playscheme.

As a children’s charity that provides holiday programmes, we are conscientious in our role to keep everyone who visits us safe and are committed to safeguarding your children and the local community.

We’re continuing to keep a close eye on developments and will keep you informed of any changes when and if they happen. We’re following all of the official guidance issued by Public Health England (PHE) and Department of Education (DfE), and will continue to do so as more information becomes available. In the event that CHIPS is cancelled, you’ll receive a full refund for your entire booking.

We’re taking the following actions and precautions:

Before CHIPS@Easter

Staff training has been increased, to make sure staff are up to speed on best practices, so they can remind children and answer any questions.  We’ll email all bookers before their child is due at CHIPS with any additional relevant information.  We’ll contact you with any updates with as much notice as possible so you’re always informed.  We’ll share detailed information on the website in line with guidance and advice at the time


Staff will be ensuring everyone follows best hygiene practices, including washing hands in the correct manner.  Additional anti-bacterial gel and hand sanitizer with alcohol will be available and all will be encouraged to use frequently. Extra cleaning products will be introduced for regular cleaning of door handles, toilet handles, taps, eating areas in particular.

Please be assured we will keep you updated with arrangements once they are confirmed and we are acting responsibly in our planning.

Kind Regards
