OUT OF SCHOOL CLUB

**Letter to OOSC parents/carers -Preparing for September 2020 (sent July 2020)

"Dear Parent/Carer

We are looking forward to welcoming you, in the new school year, to our Out of School Club. 

With all the changes that everyone is experiencing at the moment due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have had to make some changes to the routines.

Breakfast Club

·         Please drop off your child off on the Dorset Street entrance by 8.15 a.m. (This will avoid you coming into contact with other families who may be lining up with their children.)

·         Please ring the bell and a member of staff will come to the door.

·         If other families arrive to drop their child off at the same time, we as ask that you socially distance yourselves.

·         The Out of School Club staff will sign your child in for you to avoid passing the clipboard between staff/parent/carer.

·         Children will be asked to wash their hands on arrival and to put their hats/gloves/scarves in their coat sleeves.

·         When your child has breakfast, we will follow social distancing guidelines as they sit down to eat.

·         Children will be taken to their class bubbles safely at their allocated times.

 

After School Club

·         Children will be taken safely from their class bubbles down to the Out of School Club at their staggered times.

·         Children will wash their hands when they go to the Out of School Club and before they leave at the end of the day.

·         Please bring a hoodie/cardigan (that your child can leave in school) to change into when they get down to the club.  Children will put their school jumper back on to go home.

·         The Government have said that schools should resume any Out of School Club provision were possible whilst minimising the risk of spreading the Covid-19 virus, as much as possible.  By taking jumpers off we feel that it could reduce the spread a little.

·         As in breakfast club, the children will socially distance as much as possible especially when having their snack.

·         Please ring the bell when picking up your child at the end of the day.

·         Have your passwords ready and a member of staff will sign your child out.

·         If other families arrive to pick up their child at the same time, we ask that you socially distance yourselves.

 

Other information

·         Staff will wipe all the touch points regularly, including the bell.

·         When staff cannot socially distance from children or adults, they will wear masks/visors.

 

If I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

Hope you all have a lovely summer holiday and we look forward to seeing you in September.

Best wishes

Mrs Renshaw"

Letter to Key Worker families currently accessing the club:

"ROSEGROVE AFTER SCHOOL CLUB 6.4.2020

As previously discussed with you, we have been struggling to sustain the After-School Club. 

Following on from our conversation, please accept this letter as confirmation, that regretfully the club is closed with effect from today.

Although the club is not running at present, we hope that things will get back to normal as soon as possible i.e. once the COVID 19 crisis is over.  We will of course inform you, as soon as the situation changes and we can resume the service.

Thank you

Mrs Renshaw and the Club Directors"

COVID 19 - **16.3.2020 update

To all our families that use our Out of School Club in the mornings and afternoons:

We understand that in the current climate, it is an uncertain time and worrying time for everyone.

However, we would we like to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to be as ‘preventative’ as possible.  We are following government and local authority guidance.

Please find information below, which I hope will clarify some of the things we are currently doing, some of the things that we ask for your support in and an outline of our actions in the event of school closure:

  • We are very fortunate that the hygiene nurse has been into school recently to show us all how to wash our hands properly.

We are reminding all children to wash their hands to two renditions of Happy Birthday. Children also wash their hands as they come into school and wash their hands as they go home from school. They are reminded not to touch their mouths, faces and eyes.  As in school, we are sure that you are encouraging your children to wash their hands regularly and to use tissues to catch sneezes and coughs at home.

  • If you have any concerns about your child please use 111 NHS online or contact 111/your GP and ask for advice. Should you/your child have symptoms linked to the virus, please could you let school know what your GP/111 have advised?
  • We ask that you use the hand gel in our entrance if you do come into/exit school building, however during this time Mrs Barlow, Mrs Wilkinson and the team in Out of School Clubs, will sign your child in and out of club.  The same security measures will be followed i.e. regarding passwords.
  • We also ask that you consider our other families and children, should anyone in your household be unwell.  In these instances please follow government guidance.

This is a difficult time and we will continue to support each other.

Mrs Renshaw

Company Director

In the interests of safety, could I please ask parents/carers using this entrance, to ensure that the gate is closed after 'drop-offs' and 'pick-ups'.

Many thanks.
