Welcome to Boot Up!

Due to the National Lockdown BOOT UP will remain CLOSED until Monday 19th April

For the safety and security of children, staff, parents & carers and other agencies connected to Boot Up Outdoor Learning, we will remain CLOSED due to the Coronavirus Pandemic until then.

We have decided to re-open on Monday 19th April, for the start of the Summer Term and we will soon be in touch with those schools who have students on our current list. We hope to re-open fully to a select number of schools with small groups provided there is a continuous decline in Covid cases and an easing of national restrictions.

We will have put all the necessary social distancing conditions in place and have a fully sanitised equipment and materials alongside an effective cleaning regime. Groups will be in small ‘bubbles’ and the day will take a slightly different format to usual, with more social distancing and less team activity. 

If you would like to book a place for a young person at your school or agency for later in the term, then please contact Jane on 07967132919 or email jane@bootup.org.uk and we can discuss a suitable time. 

On this website you can find ALL the latest Re-opening risk assessments, our System of Controls (as per Government guidelines for re-opening schools), Keeping Everyone Safe leaflets for both school and home and other formal documents for schools and agencies to apply for a place at Boot Up.  See under School Groups page – http://bootup.org.uk/hs-and-risk-assessment/

We look forward to seeing everyone back again safe and well soon and hope that you will continue to support our work with vulnerable children in the future.
