The safety and security of everyone who attends a course at Sedbergh is of utmost importance to us and we are committed to providing the highest standard of safeguarding and to promoting the health and welfare of our attendees. In order to maintain the quality of the programme and to ensure the safety of all our staff and children we are regularly reviewing the government requirements and guidelines for social distancing and Covid-19 infection control. We will make parents aware of any Covid-19 regulations at force during the courses and any restrictions in place will be strictly adhered to.
All the children attending one of our residential courses will be housed in one of Sedbergh School's nine boarding houses, six boys houses and three girls, with boys and girls being in separate accommodation. The majority of rooms at the school are single, but there are also a selection of shared rooms in each house ranging from twins up to 5 bed shared rooms. We will always do our very best to keep courses to the same house and also to room groups of friends with, or next to each other on a best endeavour basis. This will be dependent upon any social distancing regulations that may be in force at the time of the course.
All the houses are well-equipped with social areas providing games room, wifi and Sky TV where they can relax in the evenings after a hard days training.
pastoral & Medical care
At Sedbergh Courses we realise that, for a lot of the children attending, it could well be the first time they have stayed away from home and we pride ourselves on the level of our pastoral care. To maintain continuity for the children on the courses the majority of coaches will also stay in the houses overnight, supported by our own pastoral staff. Should they feel in neeed of support there will always be a staff member available. For those parents also feeling a touch of separation anxiety we will provide a contact number, staffed at all times throughout the course, day and night.
The sports courses are physically demanding on the children so we will have a fully qualified nurse and also a physio available at all times during the courses.
food & entertainment
During the courses all meals will be provided by our own catering staff and will be available for those attending both residential and day courses. All meals will have options, including vegetarian and a salad bar. We can cater for most dietary requirements and allergies, but please do let us know when booking the course so that we can properly prepare.
