Personal protective equipment
Hand sanitiser will be available for children to use throughout the venue and they will be encouraged to wash their hands frequently.
Child friendly hand washing posters will be displayed at a suitable height at sessions.
Face coverings are optional.
There is no requirement for children to adhere to social distancing.
Toys and shared equipment will be cleaned at regular intervals throughout the session.
Staff will clean touch points on outdoor play equipment before children use it, and all staff and children will wash their hands once they have finished playing on it.
High contact points (door handles, taps, table tops etc.) at the venue will be cleaned at regular intervals with antibacterial spray.
Windows will be opened at times at the activity venue for ventilation purposes.
Doors will not be left open unless they lead to a secure outdoor area as this could present a safeguarding risk.
Due to the time of year, staff will ensure that heating at the venue is used if the fresh air causes the venue to be too cold.
We recommend children bring along clothing layers to the session.
Children will not be able to attend the session if they or anyone in their household have COVID symptoms (high temperature, a new continuous cough, a loss or change to sense of smell or taste) have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 10 days or are awaiting the test result.
Anyone who develops COVID-19 symptoms at a session will be isolated until they could leave the session and the venue would be closed early for deep clean.
In this situation, staff will wear full PPE and children will be kept away from the symptomatic person. The area will be cleaned. The parent/guardian of the symptomatic person (if a child) will be contacted and asked to collect them.
If this is a staff member, they will go home once suitable cover has been arranged.
A suitable room will be identified for the symptomatic person to wait in that is large enough to keep a 2 metre distance between the symptomatic person and supervising person.
