We have worked closely with all of our schools regarding our reopening plans and constantly reviewed the latest government guidelines to ensure we are fully up to date. This has enabled us to adapt our normal operating procedures for each site to ensure the safety of our children, families and staff as well as review the space, resources and equipment that we will be using.
We will be planning activities that promote and encourage social distancing as well as reviewing the layout of the spaces and environments that we will be using whilst still ensuring that our children have a fun and engaging experience with us. To support with this we will be continuing with our popular themed activities within our bubbles as well as creating bubble displays, creations and photo opportunities.
Our staff will have completed Covid-19 online training and received, read and agreed a Covid-19 information pack including our Risk Assessment, Operating Procedures and Staff Agreement.
We will have clear signage in place at all of our settings which will include hand washing reminders, bubble spaces and areas, one way systems where applicable and social distancing reminders.
Cleaning schedules will be in place to ensure an enhanced level of cleaning is taking place before, during and after each session, This will include specific information on the level of cleaning needed based on the area and/or resource or equipment.
When children arrive at the setting their belongings will be sprayed down and then placed in their bubble area. The children will then immediately go to wash their hands. Staff and children will be asked to either wash or sanitise their hands approximately every 20 minutes, after they have been to the toilet and before and after eating breakfast or snack. Children will be actively reminded and encouraged to minimise touching their face where possible and staff will be wiping down high touch point surfaces within the setting regularly.
