  • The Trustees and staff recognise that careful planning is essential to keep the children and staff safe. Planning helps us to limit the spread of Covid-19 within our setting.
  • Children will now mix across the year groups whilst at Time Out Club.
  • Regular Handwashing will be maintained throughout our sessions.
  • Rooms will be well ventilated and we will endeavour to get outside as much as possible.
  • Facemasks are not longer required for parents and carers collecting their child.
  • Children no longer need to self isolate if a member of their household tests positive but a PCR test should be booked as soon as possible.
  • Wrap around care provisions are now required to have an ‘Outbreak Management Plan’.

What is an outbreak?

For most education and childcare settings an outbreak is likely to be identified, whichever one of these thresholds is reached first:
5 children, pupils, students or staff, who are likely to have mixed closely, test positive for COVID-19 within a 10-day period;


10% of children, pupils, students or staff who are likely to have mixed closely test positive for COVID-19 within a 10-day period
In the event of an ‘Outbreak’, we will put in place additional safety measures and be led by Hertfordshire Public Health.

If you have any questions regarding testing or self-isolation, please do not hesitate to contact us.
