Following the Government’s latest Guidance we have pretty much returned to normal operations, whilst retaining the increased levels of sanitising. We do however continue to  request that anyone who has been asked to self-isolate or is in a household with anyone who is showing any of the the well-publiscised symptoms of COVID-19 or has had a positive test result, do not attend the sessions in line with the prevailing guidance.

Our top priority will always remain the the well-being & safety of  the extended Little Wickets Family; kids, parents, coaches  and of course the wider community.

Some of our  School Curriculum Sessions  continued throughout Lockdown 3 to support our Partner Primary Schools to deliver their Keyworker Sports provision and from Monday March 8th 2021 and many more of our After-School clubs have already restarted.  Each school takes an individual approach to the extra-curricular activities they offer so they will be in touch with parents directly about their plans.  However, if you would like to check the latest update for your school’s Little Wickets Club or  would like your school to offer Little Wickets’ activities (curricular or extra-curricular) in a fun & safe way please feel free to  contact our Schools’ Team  Email Little Wickets’ Schools Team
