Questions and Answers

We will update this page with questions asked by parents, carers and pupils that we feel others may benefit from knowing the answers to.

 

Do the children need towels?

Yes, along with all toiletry items.

 

Does the site cater for dietary requirements?

Yes. Prior to our visit, we communicate all dietary requirements such as allergies, vegetarianism, and religious beliefs. There is always a choice at meal times but if there is nothing suitable on offer for those children with specific dietary requirements, an alternative will be provided.

 

What are the showers like?

All children will shower at least once daily. Showers are individual rooms with doors for privacy and curtains to keep towels dry while under the water. Children enter wrapped in a towel holding any toiletries required and come out wrapped in a towel (hopefully clean) to walk to their room to dry and dress. We recommend that before attending all children know how to wrap a towel around themselves, under their armpits, to ensure they are fully covered.

 

Is it fun?

Yes! Why do you think the staff like going?

 

 

Are they allowed to take a Go Henry card?

No. Children may hand in up to £10 in cash on the morning that we leave but are not permitted to take their Go Henry cards.

 

 

Can the children take a mobile phone?

No. Children can not take phones, electronic devices or anything that needs a plug. They are permitted to take a torch.

 

 

Can they take snacks?

No. Children are not permitted food in their rooms.

 

 

Are the children allowed to take a pillow and cuddly toy from home?

Yes. Providing that they are able to carry their bag, they are welcome to bring a cuddle toy and/or pillow from home. Pillows and all other bedding is provided so this is not a requirement but children are welcome to bring their own pillow if they wish.
