July 2020 News letter
July 14, 2020
South Bristol Children Centre’s are still adapting to the UK new normal situation. Our Centre’s are partly closed due to the current situation, we are still offering food clubs and will remain to support most families remotely. We are now able to offer some sessions with families on an individual basis in the garden or a ventilated room if need be. The nursery schools also remain open to those who have booked a space for their children directly.
Covid 19 Update
Following visits from Bristol city council health and safety officer to all South Bristol Children Centre sites we can confirm we are Covid-19 secure.
- We have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment and shared the results with the people who work here.
- We have cleaning, hand washing and hygiene procedures in line with guidance.
- We have taken all reasonable steps to help people work from home. Family support staff will continue to offer remote support over the phone but can now see individual families in the garden or in well ventilated room if need be
- We have taken all reasonable steps to maintain a 2m distance in the workplace ensuring food clubs operate outside with social distancing measures in place.
- Where people cannot be 2m apart, we have done everything practical to manage transmission risk by working in locality teams.
The Telephone support line is available from Mon-Fri, 9-3 on 07920416161.
