COVID 19 Prevention measures
We have really missed running our classes and seeing everyone but are finally looking forward to resuming classes again this September. We will be needing to make a few changes to keep everyone safe and to follow government guidelines.
We will be using the following measures to ensure we are keeping the children as safe as possible:
We have greatly reduced the capacity of each class to 16 children. This is to ensure we can maintain social distancing between year groups.
Seating and social distancing:
-Pupils will be asked to use hand sanitiser when entering and leaving the room, which will be provided at the door.
-We will be seating the children in year groups which will be distanced at 2 metres apart
Materials and equipment:
-Separate material and equipment packs will be used for for each venue/school
-Seperate material and equipment packs will be provided on the desks for each year group at every venue/school.
-The children will be reminded each week and at regular intervals throughout to ensure they stick to using their allocated equipment.
-Pencils will be colour coded to help identify them.
-Each pack will be cleaned at the end of the session and not used again until the following week.
Cleaning and ventilation:
-All areas will be cleaned prior to starting the activities and at the end of the activity- desks, tables, handles, toilets etc.
-The space will be kept well ventilated where possible by keeping windows/ doors open.
-Pupils will be using the toilets one at a time and the toilets will be cleaned in between use
Collection of children:
-Parents will be asked to maintain social distancing when collecting and we will send out a year group at a time, ensuring each group is clearly with their parents before we send out the next group – please bare with us whilst we do this, if for any reason you need to collect your child early you must first contact Hannah on 07967 653946.
– We have a non-contact thermometer which we can use if a child starts to feel unwell whilst in our care, parents will be contacted to collect the child immediately and we will then follow the Government Guidelines to deal with caring for this child and the rest of the children.
-If your child is unwell whilst at school on the day that we are running the clubs the child will remain in the care of the school until the child is collected. You will be contacted by us to inform you of this
-If a pupil or staff member tests positive, we will have up to date contact information for everyone attending classes so NHS test and trace can speak directly to those that have been in contact to offer advice
If you would like any further information please let us know by calling Hannah on 07967 653946 or email email@example.com
All the Best
