Summer 2021 Holiday Clubs and Covid-19

As a leading Ofsted Outstanding holiday club provider we are confident we will be able to operate holiday clubs that are safe but still highly engaging and exciting for children.

We have been working closely with the Department for Education, Ofsted and the Local Authority through this pandemic and will continue to do so to ensure all our procedures are current, effective and thorough.

Our team of experienced and highly qualified staff can’t wait to see the children. We are busy planning activities that are engaging and fun for all the children whilst ensuring that the safety of the children and staff is maintained.

In the event of any changes that prevent us running holiday clubs we will offer a full refund.

In accordance with current Government guidance - holiday clubs are open to all children.

Some of our clubs are open to all children and others are exclusively for children at particular schools (you can see this information about each school on the next page that lists all the holiday clubs we are running).

How we will make our clubs safe

With the changes and restrictions in place we will be making some changes to our procedures, risk assessments and club set up, however we are confident this can be done without compromising on the high quality of provision we offer.

We know that the guidance is constantly under review and we are following this closely.

We will/ensure:

1)   Comply with all statutory guidance.  Currently this comprises of:

  • Covid-19 Secure guidelines – UK Government
  • Our plan to rebuild: The UK Government’s COVID-19 recovery strategy
  • Coronavirus (COVID-19): Implementing protective measures in education and childcare settings
  • Covid-19: Cleaning of non-healthcare settings

2)   Liaise and adhere to advice from all regulating bodies including UK Government, Ofsted, Department for Education, the Local Authority and our insurance provider. 

3)   Risk assessments will be completed and reviewed regularly to ensure the extra risks are minimised, managed and all measures taken to prevent impact from Covid-19.   This will give us the confidence that we can protect the safety and well-being of all those involved with Rattle and Roll Performance.  

4)   Communication with parents will be paramount to everyone feeling confident in attending our clubs. We will communicate all updates, changes and news to parents in a timely manner to ensure you have a full and comprehensive picture of how we will operate.  

5)   New procedures will be implemented to meet the above points. These are currently evolving as new guidance is released but include:

  • Maintain social distancing. 
  • Having ‘bubbles’ of children – very similar to the current school set up – where children will stay with their small group of children and their member of staff throughout the club to reduce the ‘cross contamination’ risk.
  • Staggered lunch breaks and playtimes for the children to ensure their ‘bubbles’ do not mix.
  • Hand sanitiser and hand washing will be frequently used throughout the day 
  • Bubbles will be kept apart for the duration of the clubs 
  • Sharing of equipment will not be allowed. Our careful planning will ensure this does not impact the quality of the activities offered.
  • New cleaning regimes will be implemented to meet the Government Covid-19 guidance 
  • First aid, toilet incidents and other close contact moments will be adapted to ensure the dignity of the children, their safety, and that of our staff.  
  • Use of the outdoor areas available to us will be maximised as advised by the current documentation.  

6)   New documentation will be in place prior to and during our clubs to help us remain compliant and safe.  We will need all parents/carers to agree that by attending on any day they confirm their child currently is:

  • Not confirmed as having coronavirus
  • Not living with someone who is currently suffering from Coronavirus
  • Not shown symptoms of Coronavirus within the last 14 days
  • Not currently isolating as a result of showing symptoms of Coronavirus
  • Not living with a member of the population who is required to be “shielded”

Holiday Clubs

Our holiday clubs are fun filled and action packed. Ofsted inspected us and rated our holiday clubs as OUSTANDING in all areas.

Our clubs are open to all children aged 3-11 (please note all children must be toilet trained in order to attend).

Each day is action packed and fun filled with lots of different activities. Activities include dance, yoga, drama, tag rugby, dodgeball, cricket, rounders, singing, crafts, art and much much more. Our clubs have a particular focus on team work, confidence building and wellbeing.

We accept all childcare vouchers.

What to bring and wear

  • Please bring a NUT FREE packed lunch and drinks with you, as well as plenty of snacks as we have lots of breaks during the day.
  • Please bring a refillable water bottle so we can ensure that everyone drinks plenty of water.
  • If it is warm, please apply sun cream before you attend the day as we will be outside as much as possible.
  • Please also send a coat in case of colder or wet weather. Whatever the weather we always try to get some fresh air.
  • Please dress in comfortable clothes and shoes that are easy to move in (i.e. trainers, leggings etc).

Young Leaders Programme – are you in Year 6 or above?

The Young Leaders initiative is for children in Year 6 and upwards and runs as part of our holiday club provision. It offers a structured programme of achievement focused around the development of core skills such as leadership; initiative; and creativity. The programme gives children the opportunity to develop and enhance their skills as well as gain valuable work experience.

There are just 8 spaces on each club for our Young Leaders who will work through our bronze; silver and gold levels. On each day they will be involved in leading activities with small groups of children and be assigned a mentor as part of the programme.
