As we all know too well, the coronavirus pandemic has left children all over the UK with all sorts of stress & hardship to deal with. Buzy Bees will be raising money for Children in Need 2020 by taking part in sponsored walks throughout the week of 9-13 November.

We hope that you’ll join us to raise money. A sponsorship form will be coming home with your child this week if you’d like your child to join in.

Thank you for your support.

Currently it is not possible for parents to enter the premises. Please ensure you wear a mask & socially distance whilst queuing outside. Thank you for your continued support.



Dear Parents

Working to updated guidance & the rising levels of Covid – 19 in the area we are putting extra measures in place to keep everyone safe.

Please could all adults who come to Buzy Bees at drop off & collection wear a mask. A grid directly outside the front door is for children only. Please note only one adult per child is to enter the grounds of Buzy Bees, if you need to bring siblings please keep them by your side.

Thank you for your cooperation.


Child Protection:
*As individual children return to childcare, Key Persons will take time to sit & talk to the children in small groups to monitor the children’s emotional well-being & to flag up any safeguarding concerns that may have occurred during lockdown.
*Both the Safeguarding Lead & Deputy will be available in the setting as normal.
*We will keep in contact on a weekly basis with our vulnerable children ie. child protection involvement, EHCP in place.
*A risk assessment will be formulated to ensure contact & support is maintained & offered to the family of any children with an EHCP.
*We will now endeavour to conduct all meetings with safeguarding professionals & those professionals involved with a child with an EHCP virtually via ‘Teams’ or ‘Zoom’. If this is not possible due to technical problems a report will be submitted.
*Policies are updated as a result of the general Covid19 risk assessment for the setting.
