From 20th July 2020, we will begin to offer a covid-compliant Holiday Scheme at LOPC. 

We are excited and prepared to invite you and your children back to us, with exiting new activities such as Stand Up Paddle-board Journeys, the British Canoeing Start Award, STEM sessions and old favourites such as the Abbey Park River Trip!

Changes to the Holiday Scheme:

From the 20th July, we will be offering the exciting and adventurous Scheme here at LOPC.  We need to be complying with current covid regulations, so there are a few things that may be different. 

We are unable to offer Breakfast Club at the moment, with drop off from 09:00 - 09:25. Sessions will begin at their usual time of 09:30. 

Lunch time will be reduced to 45 minutes. The tuck shop will continue to run with staggered operating times. Please bring small change should your child wish to purchase sweets or still drinks. 

Parents/Legal Guardians need to provide a packed lunch, snacks, appropriate sun covering (sun hat, t-shirt with sleeves), a large water bottle/plenty of drinks, sun cream and a full set of spare clothing. Please see the kit list for further information.

The sessions will finish at 16:00. Pick up will be from 16:00 - 16:30. 

We will continually assess how we run the Scheme, and look to extend it in August, but this will be confirmed at a later date. 

Children will remain with their group and instructors for the full day.  Groups with more than 5 people in will be split into 2 while the maximum permitted group meeting size is 6.

In previous Schemes we have allowed group changes, availability permitting, on the morning of attendance. We will not be allowing this in the initial return of the Scheme. 

Children will not be expected to wear face masks or covering, but if they choose to do so they can. 

-     On arrival, children may be temperature checked, if so, those displaying a high temperature (over 38°C) will be unable to attend, and advised to self-isolate per covid-19 guidelines. 

In previous years, we have provided sun cream for children. We are unable to do so at the moment. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to provide sun cream for their child(ren). 

Please note that LOPC reserve the right to alter activities and groups at the beginning of the day. We make every effort to stick to the original activity plan, but occasionally we may have to make changes.

Please see the Holiday Scheme Information Leaflet (2020) for further information about our Covid-19 changes.

Holiday Scheme 2020 Information

Group descriptions: 

Orange Group: For children in Year 1 from September 2019, to 8 years old. Activities will be largely land based, with the occasional Bell Boat session and a favourite: the Abbey Park River Trip (Thursdays, conditions permitting). 

Group 1: For children aged 8 to 11. Activities will largely be land based, with the occasional water session, such as the British Canoeing Start Award, a Stand up Paddle Board journey and Canoeing. 

Group 2: For children aged 8 to 16. Land based activities only. This will be a mix of high ropes, ranged activities and STEM sessions. 

Group 3: For children aged 8 to 16. There will be water sessions each day, mixed with land activities. Activities could include kayaking, the British Canoeing Start/Discover Award, Stand up Paddle Board journey, canoeing, and the Abbey Park River Trip (Thursdays, conditions permitting).

There may be room for some flexibility, and we actively encourage the Children to have a say in what they would like to do, therefore activities may vary (including for conditions on the day, such as weather restrictions). Please note that LOPC reserve the right to alter activities and groups at the beginning of the day. We make every effort to stick to the original activity plan, but occasionally we may have to make changes. 

Prepare your children to be outside all day, including in rain, and please provide spare clothes and shoes. Sessions can run in most conditions.

Illness onsite:

Should your child become unwell while on site, you or your stated emergency contacts must be available, and will be contacted to collect your child from LOPC.

If you wish to cancel within 14 days prior of the commencement of the relevant scheme, you will not be entitled to a refund and will be liable to pay for each booking in full. 

If you cancel more than 14 days prior to the commencement of the relevant scheme, you will be liable to pay us 50% of the total cost of the relevant scheme. 

If you have paid more than 50% of such total cost at the time you cancel, we will refund you the balance and retain an amount equal to 50% of the total cost of the relevant scheme. If you have not paid 50% of such cost at the time you cancel, you will remain liable to pay the balance of that 50% to us. 

If your child cannot attend due to illness or other unforeseen circumstance, provided you have given us 48 hours notice, at our discretion, we may permit you to transfer your credit to another booking. If no reason or inadequate notice is given, you will be liable to pay for the session in full.
