Please see the below document with regards to updates for returning to Booker Avenue Kids Club.
As previously mentioned, the children will be kept in the same bubbles as they have been in during the school day. For the infants this will be in year groups and for the juniors this will be in class groups.
Drop off and pick up:
Drop off for Breakfast Club and pick up for After School will be at the Infants School entrance.
When queueing for drop off or pick up at the Infants School entrance, please ensure to practice social distancing and stay 2m apart from other people. If you or any member of your household has been displaying any of the symptoms of Covid-19, please do not bring your child to Breakfast Club and ensure you notify the school.
Please make sure your child has clean hands when they arrive at Kids’ Club in the morning. There was be sanitiser stations throughout our site for your child to use and we have the safety data sheets available for them.
At breakfast club, we will have a member of staff on the gate who will guide you down to Kids’ Club. The infants will enter the school at the canteen at the usual double doors entrance and the juniors will enter the canteen at the automatic doors entrance. If you have two or more children attending, they have to be in separate bubbles per the headteacher’s guidance (unless they are in the same class and bubble at school.)
At breakfast club, the infants will sit separated in their bubbles. The juniors will be separated into their class bubbles. All of the spaces will be socially distanced with a space of 2m around each space where possible.
The children will be served their breakfast and afterwards have table top games and activities they can do.
The children will wash their hands when they are finishing up at breakfast club so they are ready to start the school day nice and clean and we will take the children up to class per their staggered start times.
After School Club
When picking up at after school, please enter through the infants gate and walk down through the car park. We will get your child ready and bring them out to you. Please use the pedestrian pathway to leave the school.
During the afternoon, we will have staggered registration times so the children are not all in the canteen and hall at the same time, despite them being separated and social distancing measures between the bubbles being in place. We feel that it’s best to keep them outside as much as possible and the keep the bubbles apart from each other as much as possible.
The children will wash their hands when they come to us and there will be antibacterial gel and foam around the setting that they will be encouraged to use as the session goes on.
We will keep our daily pick up lists as a form of record to state who was in each bubble and which member of staff was with that bubble, in case a child or member of staff reports signs of Covid.
When we return to school, the Reception children won’t be with us until 21st September, allowing for additional space for the infants and also time for us to plan the setting and flow of the site as we have not been able to visit the school site until the 1st September.
We have a massive amount of fun outdoor equipment that can be cleaned after each use at the end of each session to ensure a wide variety of exciting play. Nothing will be shared across bubbles during each session.
The Bubbles will have their own:
Toys – sets will be rotated on a weekly basis with a wide range of options. Cleaned daily and then at the end of the week the next bubble will get that set.
Books – which are age relevant and that can be wiped down.
Tablets and games consoles which will be cleaned after each use
Art and craft selection – Felt tips, pencils, colouring in and class pack art and crafts.
As always, we will do our best to safeguard your children and we want to make sure you feel safe and relaxed that your children will be safe with us.
We also want you to tell your children that we have missed them and we are so excited to see them and have fun at Kids’ Club like we normally do!
Please let us know if you have any questions.
The Booker Kids Club Team 🙂
