Short Breaks Local Offer for this Autumn Term

The Autumn offer has been published on the Local offer website on this page.

This information has also been emailed to all parent carers with an active account on the SBLO online system.  We regret that the online system is still not available to access by parents and carers due to the ongoing coronavirus situation.

We know how important overnight and short breaks are to families and we have been working hard with our providers to ensure that they are as available and accessible to families as possible. It may not be possible for Overnight Short Breaks and the Short Break Local Offer providers to keep children in the same bubble they are in during the school day, so we are asking providers to put in place other ways to minimise the risk of transmission of Coronavirus.
