Frequently Asked Questions
My child has a health condition that makes them vulnerable and at greater risk from COVID-19, what do I do?
This is your decision to make, please discuss it with the Out-of-School Provision Coordinator. If you are in doubt on whether your child’s health condition means they should be shielding, please seek advice from your GP.
What should I do if my child has COVID-19 symptoms?
Under no circumstances should you send your child to club if they:
- feel unwell, have any of the three identified COVID-19 symptoms (a new continuous cough, a high temperature or loss of taste or smell) or they have tested positive to COVID-19 in the past 14 days
- lives in a household with someone who has symptoms of COVID-19 or has tested positive to COVID-19 in the past 14 days.
For more information on how to apply for a test for yourself or someone in your household with symptoms including children under 5s please visit the Public Health Wales website.
How will we limit the risk of infection for your child?
Risk assessments are being carried out at all our clubs ahead of the summer and we will have a comprehensive programme of measures in place to limit the risk to staff and children. These include:
- Separate entrances & exits
- Clear signage on the importance of handwashing, hygiene and maintaining social distancing
- One-way systems with clear floor markings to encourage social distancing
- Parents/children & young people and staff will have to complete a health questionnaire before they are permitted to enter the club premises
- Reduced numbers of children & young people within clubs
- Increased handwashing
- Ensuring good respiratory hygiene – promoting the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’
- Increased cleaning – frequently touched surfaces will be cleaned regularly during the day and a full clean will take place every evening
- Each club will have its own designated isolation room should a child or staff member start to feel ill during the day.
Please note that all staff have completed Infection Control training and we have a robust and up-to-date Infection prevention and control policy (copies are available on request).
Bookings will close Friday 10th July and we will confirm places by no later than Friday 24th July 2020.
