Our approach to working with children during the Coronavirus pandemic
The potential impact of the Coronavirus pandemic is of concern to everyone. We wanted to reassure you that the health and wellbeing of the children we work with and those of our staff is the highest priority for us at ComputerXplorers Bolton & Wigan.
We love sharing our excitement about the world of technology with all of the children in our classes and we are working hard to continue to share that in whatever way we can. Whether that is working in person with schools or by delivering classes online we are committed to keeping the tech excitement alive!
Keeping our 'in person' classes COVID-secure
We carefully manage our groups to ensure that your children and our staff stay safe while having fun.
- Social distancing rules are complied with throughout our classes - group numbers are reduced where necessary.
- Keyboards, computers and mice are sanitised before and after each class.
- Children are required to sanitise their hands on entering and leaving class.
- Computers will not be shared during the pandemic.
Support for schools caring for Key Workers' children during the COVID-19 pandemic
ComputerXplorers Bolton & Wigan can come in to your school and provide fun and educational computing and technology sessions on your premises to groups of key workers’ children you are continuing to care for.

We are looking forward to the day (in the not too distant future!) that we will be back in all of our regular schools with some more great computing clubs. As soon as you're ready, we're ready! Just give us a call.
In the meantime, why not try our virtual tech clubs with our online classes.
