Covid-19 Protective Measures Policy
At Early Bloomers After School Club, Covid-19 protective measures have been put into place in line with the government’s guidelines (updated 10th July 2020) https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-for-parents-and-carers-of-children-attending-out-of-school-settings-during-the-coronavirus-covid-19-outbreak/guidance-for-parents-and-carers-of-children-attending-out-of-school-settings-during-the-coronavirus-covid-19-outbreak
to reduce the risk of the virus and transmission to children, parents and staff. The measures are also aligned to Harris Academy’s policies on Covid-19 secure procedures.
Please arrive by the main reception gate and press buzzer for the After School Club (Lordship Lane)
A member of staff will sign your child/children in at reception
Please do not enter the school building unless you have an arranged meeting with the senior management
You should leave from the gate on your left (opposite school hall)
Do not enter the setting if you are displaying any symptoms of Coronavirus (Covid-19) and follow the advice from the link provided
Due to parent needs, drop offs are usually staggered. We are, therefore, happy for you to drop off your child at your usual times. However, during drop-off and collection times, use the demarcated markings on the floor to remain socially distant whilst waiting.
Do not gather at entrance and exit gates
Drop off and pick up is limited to one parent/carer per family
Try to avoid using public transports to get to the setting, if possible. Walk or cycle where possible or use a private vehicle - provided you are travelling with those from the same household.
Upon entering the club: -
The children will wash their hands in the toilets located at the reception before going through to the hall.
They will remove any disposable face coverings in a bin provided or placed in a sealed bag if a reusable covering is worn. If your child is wearing a re-usable face covering please provide a sealed bag. They will wash their hands soon afterwards.
During club time: -
The children will be seated in small consistent groups of no more than 15 children. These groups will consist of children from the same year. Where this may not be possible, we may need to mix one or two groups on some of the days (of similar age) a week and the groups will remain unchanged.
There will be up to 5 groups of approx.15 children in the school hall separated by 2 meters at least. They will be seated side by side or at allocated seats.
Each group will be allocated to at least one member of staff
Each group will be allocated to the same member of staff both morning and afternoon. If this is not possible and, for example at breakfast club, you are supervised by someone different than in the afternoon session this will remain unchanged over time
Each group will have their own activities ranging from arts and crafts, construction, games, puzzles, and books
We will rotate indoor and outdoor play having up to 3 groups outside at any one time.
Please see rota for minimized movement and interaction in the club. Children will move together in groups to avoid mixing with other groups
Breakfast and snacks: -
A trolley on wheels is a new addition to the club which will manoeuvre up and down the hall serving the children with their breakfast and snack.
At the Breakfast Club, children will be served in their individual space that will be wiped clean before and after they eat.
At the After School Club, the children will be served with their snack once they have been registered as usual.
Please see revised menu.
Hygiene practices: -
Children will wash their hands-on arrival in the morning and before eating breakfast, they will sanitize hands at the end of session before going to class.
Children will sanitize hands on arrival to the Club, wash hands before they eat and sanitize hands before leaving club.
Children will be encouraged to stay within their “bubble group” and social distancing,
Children will be encouraged to follow the “Catch it, Bin it, Kill it” approach by providing a box of tissues and bin with covers near each table.
Equipment and resources cleaned before re used by another group

Toilets and washrooms cleaned before each session and once during session in the afternoon
Additionally, tables and equipment to be wiped clean whilst group is outdoors or mid-session

Outdoor play: -

Groups will wait socially distanced when leaving for playground and returning using one-way system to avoid mixing groups.
You can collect your child from the main reception. On arrival press buzzer for ASC. A member of staff will verify collector through intercom, your child will be brought to reception and we will sign them out. Please leave from the gates on your left.
Use of Personal Protective equipment: -
PPE will be worn by staff if a distance of two metres cannot be maintained from any child displaying coronavirus (Covid-19) symptoms.
Children whose care routinely already involves the use of PPE due to their intimate care needs will continue to receive their care in the same way.
How you can help us: -
At times, the club will use the screen in the hall, colouring sheets, work sheets or quizzes to learn about Coronavirus. We will use websites such as ‘e-bug’ and PHE School’s resource and Twinkle Learning Hub. If you are also looking for resources to use at home, we recommend trying these websites.
