coronavirus update >
With the recent changes in government guidance for holiday provision we have updated our risk assessments. Please see a summary below of the most recent changes:-
At Step 4 (19th July 2021) the government have removed the guidance to keep children within consistent ‘bubbles’. We will be maintaining a group based system where children will be within a smaller group and named member of staff, as we have seen that grouping children in this way reduces the risk of transmission, but also gives children the opportunity to build better relationships with other children and staff when they are within a consistent group.
- Ensure good hygiene for everyone
Hand Hygiene – Frequent and thorough hand cleaning is now a regular practice. We will continue to ensure that children clean their hands regularly. This will be done with soap and water or hand sanitiser.
Respiratory hygiene – The ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach continues to be very important.
- Maintain appropriate cleaning regimes
We will continue to ensure that our cleaning schedule is adhered to, this includes high touch points such as door handles and surfaces, as well as equipment.
- Keep occupied spaces well ventilated
We will endeavour to use our outdoor spaces as much as possible during camps, including having break/lunch outside in addition to the activities. If weather is poor, we will utilise indoor space, but ensure it is well ventilated and that the group size is appropriate to the space being used.
