Breakfast and After-School Club Arrangements for September 2020 (as a result of ongoing restrictions due to Covid-19)

Context:

Guidance for out of school settings, including breakfast clubs and after-school clubs was released by the government on 10th July 2020.  This has given the school very little time to respond and plan for the re-opening of these provisions in school in a safe, and secure way, both for children and staff. 

We are aware as a school, however, that our school community requires some form of wrap around care to support them in their jobs and we want to be able to provide this as soon as possible. I am therefore pleased to announce that, as of Wednesday 9th September, both breakfast club and after-school club have been available for parents and carers but under these strict rules:

Breakfast Club

  1. Breakfast club will only be available to children from families where both parents are in employment (or the sole carer in a single parent household).
  2. Breakfast club will be limited to 60 children only.
  3. 30 children will attend in the school dining hall, 30 children will attend in the KS1 hall.
  4. Payments will be non-refundable in the event of non-attendance as staffing ratios and resources will be put in place according to the register.
  5. Children will have to sanitize their hands before entering.
  6. Parents must accompany their children to the door they have been allocated. 
  7. We will endeavour to keep children in year group bubbles or with siblings from the same household.
  8. One way system on the site must be followed.
  9. Parents must not send their children to school if their children present as poorly, raised temperature or cough.
  10. Bookings will have to be made by the Wednesday the previous week to when care is required. Registers and bubbles will then be finalised for the following week. For example, bookings will have to be made by Wednesday 2nd September for the week beginning the 7th September.
  11. It will be possible to make bookings up to a half term at a time. 
  12. The booking system for the next half term will be opened on the school money website. Places are allocated on a first come first served basis.

 

After school club

  1. After school club will be available to all parents from March 8th.
  2. After-school club will be limited to 30 children only.
  3. Pupils will use the KS1 hall, school dining hall and the KS1 playground.
  4. Payments will be non-refundable in the event of non-attendance as staffing ratios and resources will be put in place according to the register.
  5. Children will be socially distanced whenever possible.
  6. Children must sanitize their hands before entering and at regular intervals.
  7. Bookings will have to be made by the Wednesday the previous week to when care is required. Registers and bubbles will then be finalised for the following week. For example, bookings will have to be made by Wednesday 2nd September for the week beginning the 7th September.
  8. It will be possible to make bookings up to a half term at a time. 
  9. The booking system for the next half term will be opened on the school money website. Places are allocated on a first come first served basis. 

 

This information is subject to change if there is a spike in local cases or if a second lockdown occurs. The advice to parents is that if you can make alternative arrangements initially, it would sensible to do so. We are aware demand often outstrips the numbers we can offer in the Autumn term, however, we simply do not have the space, staffing or resources to increase numbers at this stage. This is the best we can do in the difficult circumstances we still face. 

If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Thank you for your support and understanding.
