Blackpool FC Community Trust in partnership with Blackpool Council are delighted to announce free child care provision at a number of locations across Blackpool. This provision is part of the ‘Blackpool Summer of Fun’ programme aimed at supporting vulnerable children, pupils on free school meals and children of key workers.
Blackpool FC Community Trust will be running activity camps targeted at vulnerable children/ children on free school meals at Revoe Learning Academy and Westminster Academy and an activity camp for key workers from Highfield Leadership Academy. As well as free activities the children attending will also be provided with a free meal, drink and snacks for the day.
*This service is limited to 30 places per site so it is essential we try and support the families most at need*.
In order for us to deliver to these targeted families most at need we require the support of local school to direct the appropriate families to the booking services available.
We would appreciate if you could contact any parent/ guardian you feel falls into any of the categories stated previously.
We are happy to confirm that we are able to reopen our Blackpool shop on Monday 20th July.
Our opening times will be 9.30am until 4pm and we will be opening 5 days a week from Monday to Saturday (Closed Tuesday's, Sunday's and Bank Holidays). In august we will be open on a Tuesday.
Due to things being slightly different this year, we have had to do a lot of planning so that our shops can be as safe as possible for both customers and our staff. Safety measures have been put into place and all our staff have been trained to adhere to these. As we know, this is our busiest time of the year, so we are expecting a large volume of customers both in the shop, ordering online and ringing the store. Can we please ask all customers to be patient with all our shop staff and make sure that all guidelines are followed so we can work as quickly and safely as possible.
Therefore, once we are able to open we would like to encourage those who are NOT new starters, to order online if this is possible. Our website is www.ualonline.com
This will allow for us to cater for the new starters (Reception and Year 7 pupils) who need to try uniform on for the first time, we would also like to advise parents that the changing rooms will be closed therefore we would advise girls to come in leggings that they will be able to try skirts over the top of these and a vest top if they need to try on PE kits, and the boy’s shorts that they will be able to try trousers over if they need to, and keep the queue outside the shop down as much as possible.
As well as trying to minimise as much contact as possible, we are asking for only one parent and one child per family to come in and try their uniform on. Unfortunately, any families who bring more than one adult with them, will be told to wait outside. We understand that some of our customers are single parents, meaning they have to bring all children, therefore we will use our discretion upon arrival and allow this under these particular circumstances only.
We thank you for your continued support.
