...building a brighter future for children with Down Syndrome
COVID-19 Update 2nd November 2020
Following the recent government announcement that a second lockdown will be in place from 5th November, we will be temporarily stopping our face-to-face Friday lessons at Bodmin Road Church.
For those families affected by this, your teacher will be in touch over the next day or so to explain what we will be able to offer instead. We hope that we will be back face-to-face on Friday 4th December if the lockdown ends as currently planned on 2nd December.
For those children who were already in a group delivered online, nothing changes. Those lessons will continue online as planned throughout the lockdown period.
We also continue to offer the following:
Thank you for your continued support and understanding at this tricky time. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any comments or questions or need help with anything.
Take care and stay safe.

General COVID-19 Risk Assessment - for attendees to our Friday sessions
Outreach COVID-19 Risk Assessment - for situations where we operate in the community.
We continue to work on the finer details to re-establish the Friday sessions, and hope to provide more information on that soon.
