We have important measures in place to protect you and our staff from COVID-19. Please read these measures below carefully before booking an appointment;

• Only one parent, or adult with parental responsibility, will be permitted to attend with your child

• Following recent NHS guidance, to help stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), please wear a face covering over your nose and mouth when you attend your appointment (children under 3 years old are exempt i.e. children under 3 don’t have to wear one)

• Staff will show you into the building maintaining social distancing at all times

• You and your child will be asked to wash your hands on entering the building, if soap and water are not available hand sanitiser will be used instead

• Please ensure that you and your baby are well on the day of the appointment/please do not attend if you or your baby are unwell

• Please do not bring your baby in for weighing if you, your baby or someone in your household, has symptoms of COVID-19 (new continuous cough and/or high temperature and/or a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell)

• Do not attend your appointment if anyone in your household is in a 14 day isolation period or anyone in your household develops symptoms between making the appointment and the day of attendance.

• We suggest that you arrive no more than 5 minutes ahead of your 15 minute appointment time and wait outside for staff to greet you. To help us maintain social distancing we ask that you keep to your appointment time . You will not be allowed to keep your appointment if you are more than 5 minutes late.

Directions:

There is a finger sign on a lamp post outside St Joseph’s Primary School (which is opposite on a mini roundabout) - both on Great Hadham road CM23 2NL. The large green school gates that provide access to the centre will only open via pressing clearly marked CC button on silver panel on gates. Once inside turn right, drive down to end of car park, where centre will be in front of you.

X2 car parking spaces, x1 accessible. There is street parking outside of school drop off and pick up i.e. 10-2.00 pm, as there are x3 schools in very close proximity to each other. There are also permit parking area’s and wardens will ticket quickly. It is possible to find street parking that is in easy walking distance to the centre. Pedestrian access via gates adjacent to main school gates – these should be open during school opening times, as access to school is prevented by another set of locked gates.

Clear FC signage next to School sign facing green gates. Buggies can be safely parked in external buggy park, OR if necessary under covered patio area in FC garden. Due to small size of the centre, it is not suitable for buggies to be brought into the centre for activities.

As Windhill Family Centre is also on this site, parents/carers can sometimes get confused, and enter the grounds from the Scott Rd, Windhill entrance. They will be sent out of school and asked to turn left into The Firs, and walk up that wooded path toward Great Hadham Rd. Once at end of path, turn left, after approx. 100 yds on left = School gates. Access as detailed before.
