Please wear comfortable clothes and have some water as this is a physical activity. 

Lastly our workshop is face to face delivery. Also parents/carers will not  be able to wait on site. There will be a drop off and collect point only. If you would like certain children to be grouped or paired together due to them being friends or due to travel arrangements, please can both parents/carers let the tutor know before the workshop starts.

If your young person does need 1:1 support, unfortunately we (Barnet Council’s 0-19 Early Help Programmes Team) aren’t able to provide 1:1 or additional support for a young person to access any of our activities, courses or programmes. Your 1:1 support worker would need to be provided by you as a parent/carer or any professionals (Social Worker/ 0-19 Practitioner etc) involved with your young person. The worker providing 1:1 support would need to be DBS checked and meets all the requirements to support a young person with SEND (Special Educational Needs or Disabilities and or Autism). Also the worker can be arranged by contact Short Breaks Team or Disabled Children’s Team and using your Short Break allocation. If you don’t have knowledge about these two team please know that you can contact them and find out if your child is eligible: -
Short Breaks: - https://www.barnet.gov.uk/children-and-families/children-and-young-people-disabilities/disabled-childrens-activities-short-0
0-25 Disability Service: - https://www.barnet.gov.uk/children-and-families/children-and-young-people-disabilities/0-25-disability-service

Lastly we understand that circumstances can change very quickly and sometimes a young person can no longer attend an activity for a number of reasons. Please make sure you update your profile on our website and cancel your booking in advance. Therefore, if your child misses two consecutive sessions in a row or misses 2 separate sessions across the term or holiday period and we aren’t informed, or an appropriate reason isn't shared we will have to remove your child from the activity. If this continues across a number of our activities, it could impact on your child accessing our activities in the future.
