Clubs during Covid-19
Youth Clubs are currently operating by Zoom only. For up to date information email our Youth Team on email@example.com.
Coxhoe youth club will return to face to face session as soon as it is safe to do so. These sessions will differ to before in that to ensure we remain safe we restrict numbers and use a booking form system. More information will be posted as we are able to open.
Coxhoe & Quarrington Hill Youth Club Sessions
Virtual Sessions (young people do not need to be a member to join)
These are split into school year groups as follows:
Years 3 and 4
Years 5 and 6
Year 7 plus
We aim to be flexible and as supportive as possible during these difficult times. If your child would prefer to have a session with just themselves and their friendship group please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will aim to facilitate as best we can.
The days and times of these change due to availability and to better meet the needs of the young people, more information can be found on the Coxhoe and Quarrington Hill Young People Facebook page, or alternatively email us at email@example.com.
We are also hoping to introduce a homework help club to assist young people in home learning.
Information for face to face Youth Clubs (when operating)
You will find both forms required here:
Track and Trace
Due to track and trace we need all out young people to complete our online youth club membership form. This is so we have updated information for your child/ren – the youth club membership form is here or through the link above.
As we are limiting numbers, parents must book their child on to the youth club via our booking form.
You will then receive a confirmation email if your child has successfully gained a spot. These will go out weekly, so please do not be disheartened if you do not get a place one week. Please do not turn up if you have not reserved a place. Please do not attend youth club if you are self isolating or have any symptoms.
Arrival at Youth Club
Please arrive on time for the youth club session. Parents must drop off your child to ensure that they get into youth club. Please queue 2 meters apart whilst waiting to come inside. Money will be collected using a coin sorter.
Temperature Checks and Hand Washing
Staff will check your temperature upon arrival and anyone with a raised temperature will not be able to be admitted to the session. Young people will be asked to wash their hands upon arrival, in addition to every 20 minutes whilst inside the youth club.
The youth room will be cleaned before and after each use and in between sessions. All equipment will also be cleaned.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Staff will be wearing PPE which may include masks and face shields. Children over the age of 11 years old must wear a face mask unless exempt. There is a section on the booking form which asks you to state this. If your child has a ‘sunflower lanyard’ please encourage them to wear this.
Signs of Sickness
If your child shows symptoms during the session, we will notify you and you must collect your child immediately.
If your child or anyone in your immediate family has symptoms of Covid-19, please do not attend the session and take isolation guidance from the Government.
A risk assessment has been completed to include Covid-19, in all activities. The Parish Council’s Covid-19 risk assessment is available here. The building has also been assessed as COVID secure.
Please send your child with their own water bottle, which is easily identifiable or one which can be thrown away after use.
About the Youth Clubs
Coxhoe Parish Council have employed and sustained a youth team who deliver all the youth clubs above. In total there are 104 members of our Youth Clubs. You can read about our team on our Meet Our Children and Young People Team page. Our staff undertake a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check and there is always a member of staff with emergency first aid training.
We have a monthly schedule which caters for all of our members which include:
Air Hockey Table
Xbox and Wii Games
Arts and Crafts
Minute to win it challenges
Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) Activities
We also have access to the Active Life Centre Astro Turf, Sports Hall and Dance Studio.
In addition, our Senior Youth Club have access to hot drinks and the Active Life Centre Wifi. Please note the password changes regularly, therefore young people only have access to this whilst they are at youth club.
We also access local sporting organisations to give our young people more opportunities. We also hold Christmas and Summer activities for our young people. Last year we held a Christmas Talent show for both parents and young people to showcase their talents. This event also included a variety of stalls, hot chocolate and mince pies.
We believe in giving young people the opportunity to reach their full potential. At our Coxhoe Senior Section their were a number of members who expressed they wanted to volunteer at the junior section. As a result we therefore developed an ambassador programme.
Young people are able to apply to be apart of this programme to help support the youth team as well as the junior section. They help with activities and provide positive role models to our younger members.
Our ambassadors also take part in the key fund project which helps young people to get together to think, plan, do and review their own projects to make them a reality. This has recently resulted in a ‘inflatable fun day’ for our Coxhoe youth clubs.
