To ensure the pickup and drop off procedure runs smoothly – a queueing system with families requiring to be 2 metres apart will be in place at the sign in/sign out area. In order to contain this as much as possible – Fit For Sport will be offering 8.30-5.30pm for all bookings.

We have equipped our staff with a wide range of techniques to help positively remind children throughout the sessions to respect the 2-metre rule and their personal bubbles. Further to this, each activity camp site will contain a host of visual reminders such as posters and coned distances to reinforce the restrictions. Additionally, all games have been adapted with staff trained in the new measures to ensure all children and staff adhere to the latest distancing rules. 

 What happens if a case of COVID-19 – whether it’s a child or family member has attended or is attending the Activity Camp?

If a child is suspected to be ill and is awaiting collection, our staff members will find a suitable room where they can be isolated away from the other children taking part in the sessions. Depending on the age of the child the correct adult supervision will be maintained by our staff at all times.

If children need to go to the bathroom while waiting to be collected, they will be escorted to a different bathroom that is being used by the other children where possible. The bathroom used will then be cleaned and disinfected using standard cleaning products before being used by anyone else.

Where the child, young person or staff member tests positive, the rest of their class or group within their childcare or education setting will be sent home and advised to self-isolate for 14 days.  (1.
