security measures and policies for the camp.
FOR PARENT, RELATIVES, AND NANNIES:
● No Parents/carers allowed beyond the front door.
● Drop off and collection is limited to one parent/person per kid.
● When parents are waiting to drop off or collect their child, social distancing should be maintained at all times.
● No bags, except lunch bags or objects other than clothing, to be brought into the class.
Please, do not ask us to keep your scooters or bikes!
FOR KIDS AND TEACHERS
● Upon entry and exit, ALL children and Teachers will be thoroughly washing their hands and using antibacterial after.
● Make sure that your child has warm, weatherproof clothing/suncream on each day as the healthiest environment for all is the garden, and we will be using it as much as we can.
● We will limit the amount of contact between children and teachers.
● CAW Teachers will only attend a CAW Course if they are symptom-free, have completed the required isolation period, and achieved a negative test result.
● Teacher temperature checks will also be taken on arrival to work, one hour before the kids arrive.
● Teachers will avoid physical contact with each other including handshakes, hugs, etc.
● All our team, Ale & David, and the CAW teachers participating in this camp are quite local, so they will not be using public transport to get to the venue, but bicycles.
Should your household need to isolate in line with government guidance, please could we ask that you inform us immediately as we will need to inform other parents and arrange a deep clean of the hall. This may require us to close for a day.
AT THE VENUE
● All children and staff must thoroughly wash their hands upon arrival at the venue and frequently throughout the day, particularly before and after the loo, eating, and handling of any equipment.
● All waste will be disposed of in a hygienic and safe manner.
● The immediate disposal of used tissues will be followed.
● Used personal protective equipment (PPE) e.g. masks, gloves, aprons, etc. will be disposed of.
● All activities will be risk assessed.
● Children will not be permitted to bring items from home into the venue unless absolutely essential to their wellbeing. Where necessary, such items will be appropriately cleaned upon arrival.
Please leave at home all toys and unnecessary objects.
● CAW teachers will take daily responsibility for ensuring the venue is kept clean. This includes tables and chairs, doors and handles and that the loos are clean and tidy. The venue itself does employ its own cleaning staff too. Windows will be open where possible to ensure ventilation.
• In the event of a child developing symptoms of Covid-19 whilst attending a CAW’s camp, parents will be contacted immediately and must collect their child as soon as possible.
• The family will be advised to isolate at home in line with the NHS guidelines and not return to any of their booked courses until the isolation period is over and their child is no longer symptomatic.
• A child displaying virus-like symptoms whilst at a CAW’s course will be isolated with a staff member in a designated room or area. If possible, a window will be opened for ventilation.
• Suitable PPE will be provided to the colleague to safely isolate with the child. This includes a mask.
• Once the child has been collected, the area used to isolate the child will be thoroughly cleaned by a teacher wearing appropriate PPE.
• In the event a CAW Teacher develops Covid-19 symptoms whilst working at the camp, they will be provided with a mask to safely exit the building and advised to return home immediately.
• They will be reminded of NHS guidelines regarding isolation and personal care and not allowed to return to teach until the isolation period is over and they are no longer symptomatic.
• The Government encourages staff and children attending an Education or Childcare setting after June 1st 2020 to get tested if they display symptoms of Coronavirus.
Government guidance states:
• Where the child, young person or staff member tests positive, the rest of their class or group within their childcare or education setting should be sent home and advised to self-isolate for 14 days.
• The other household members of that wider class or group do not need to self-isolate unless the child, young person or staff member they live with in that group subsequently develops symptoms.
For your information you may like to look at the following government guidance; https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-to-educational-settings-about-covid-19 . We will be following this guidance along with the policies stated above, obviously all will be reviewed in line with any future government advice.
Huge thanks to you all,
Ale & David
