COVID-19 - Coronavirus Status & Advice

(updated Tuesday 19 January 2021)

Closure Status

Trinity Court remains open during the Spring Term lock-down and we continue to offer a full service where required.

We have a small staff team and the situation is developing rapidly. If there is further disruption to our service this will likely be at very short notice. We will communicate details by email as well as using facebook and our web pages.

Please ensure Trinity Court is added to your "allowed list" of email senders and check your junk-mail folder regularly.


Session Bookings and Invoicing

Our overheads (including staff salaries, utility bills, insurance and vehicle costs) remain unchanged in the current lock-down. Unfortunately, we need to invoice booked sessions regardless of whether they are attended.

If you would like to cancel any sessions due to coronavirus we will release them with immediate effect and will not charge a notice period. We will plan our future places and resources accordingly. If sessions are required again in the future we will, of course, be pleased to offer them if they remain available.

We will not raise session invoices if we are closed to all children.


Reported Cases at Trinity Court

There are no current cases known to us.

  • The number of known cases amongst our children is 0
  • The number of known cases amongst our staff is 0

We have a duty to report known or suspected cases to our local authority in order that contact tracing may be considered.

If you are aware of a known or suspected case and have been in contact with us please let us know as a matter of urgency.


Service Disruption

Our operating procedures have been modified to reduce the risk of transmission of coronavirus. These have been influenced by the current Government Guidance for Early Years Settings.

Unfortunately some ongoing disruption remains due to the impact of coronavirus:

  • We are not catering for cooked lunches during the day. This remains under review.
  • Parents are not allowed to enter Trinity Court. This applies when delivering or collecting children.
  • Where possible, face coverings should be worn by adults when delivering or collecting children.
  • Where possible, only one adult should arrive at the door when delivering or collecting children.

We are aware of an increase in cases of COVID-19 in our community. We anticipate further disruption is likely.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will modify our operating procedures accordingly.

Further details about our COVID-19 operating procedures are available here (PDF).

Please remember anyone who

  • is displaying coronavirus symptoms
  • has displayed symptoms in the previous 10 days
  • lives with someone who has displayed symptoms in the previous 10 days

Classifying our COVID-19 Status

For quick reference, we have graded our COVID-19 status into four colour bands. These are:

Green

No cases have been reported to us and we are unaware of any suspected cases. Trinity Court is operating as usual.

Amber

Cases (or suspected cases) have been reported to us or we have been advised to alter our operating procedures in response to the threat of infection. We are operating a full service at Trinity Court although, if members of staff are affected, some disruption may be noticeable. Please visit our web pages regularly to check on status re-grades.

Red

Our service is disrupted significantly. This may be because we have cases reported or because we are responding to Government advice. Our staffing may be severely depleted. Members of staff may be wearing aprons, gloves or masks to limit the spread of infection. Disinfection of surfaces will be occurring regularly. School runs will be running late (if at all). Cooked lunches will probably be unavailable. We are soldiering on but you will not find us at our best! Please visit our web pages regularly to check for status re-grades.

Black

Trinity Court is CLOSED to ALL children. This is a last resort. We have been advised to close by Public Health England or we have insufficient staff to operate safely. We will re-open as soon as practicable although this may be with a reduced service. Please visit our web pages regularly to check on status re-grades.


Currently, our COVID-19 status is:

Amber

Some service disrution. See right for further details.
