Coronavirus Update

School Lettings

The government’s latest COVID-19 Response has now provided the roadmap which will hopefully ease us safely out of the current lockdown restrictions. We are therefore pleased to inform hirers and clubs that lettings at The Campion School can resume in accordance with the dates specified within this roadmap and the additional published guidance for the Reopening of Businesses and Venues.

 

From Monday 8th March 2021:

No change – all facilities will remain closed

 

From Monday 29th March:

All-Weather pitch and grass pitches:

  • Clubs running formally organised activities for adults and under 18s can return
  • All activities must be compliant with guidance issued by national governing bodies
  • Activities will not be subject to gatherings limits for participants
  • No spectators will be permitted on site. Guidance states that at this stage, these gatherings must only include participants.
  • Changing rooms will remain closed

 

All-other indoor facilities:

No change – all indoor facilities will remain closed

Date to be confirmed but no earlier than 12th April:

 

All-Weather pitch and grass pitches:

  • Spectators will now be allowed on site providing that they adhere to the Rule of 6 or two households rule and that social distancing restrictions are adhered to. Please note that the government still require travel to be kept to a minimum at this point.
  • Changing rooms may still be closed. We can only reopen these to external hirers when the rules regarding outside visitors to the main school have been updated to allow this.

 

Swimming Pool:

  • Clubs running formally organised sessions for adults and under 18s can return
  • All activities must be compliant with guidance issued by national governing bodies
  • Activities will not be subject to gatherings limits for participants
  • Spectators and access to changing rooms may still be prohibited at this stage. We cannot allow this until the school rules have been updated to allow external visitors access to school buildings

Other indoor Facilities:

 We still do not know when it will be possible to resume lettings in our other internal facilities. This will only be possible when the requirement to keep students separated in year group bubbles has been lifted, which will once again allow these spaces to be used by external hirers.

I have included links below to the guidance referred to above which you may find helpful:

Hirers should check the guidance carefully and email lettings@thecampionschool.org to advise when their respective sessions can restart.

Please do not resume your sessions if you are unable to comply with the restrictions listed above or in these guidance documents

Invoices will be generated as soon as we have received confirmation of return dates and hirers should endeavour to make payment as soon as possible once invoices have been received. Assuming no further disruptions take place after April, payment of invoices will once again be required in advance of hire dates as per our terms and conditions

If you have any queries regarding the information above please email lettings@thecampionschool.org.

We look forward to welcoming you all back again and thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
