February Half Term – We are currently working with our partners in regards to providing Critical Worker care in the February Half Term and will communicate any confirmations once we have them.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and look forward to welcoming your child back as soon as possible.
Breakfast & After School Club Session Information
While Early Years and childcare guidance does not require us to operate the same bubbles as the school – we are working with each individual school requirements in regard to their preference with regards to active bubble practice at their individual school. Whether this is through separate Year Groups, Key Stages or Segregated Areas, we will implement the desired bubble strategy within our activity areas. All bubble practice will adhere to the current Early Years and Childcare COVID-19 requirements with each group size limited where required (no bubble will be greater than 30 children).
Children get dropped off by parents any time from the start of the session. This is typically 7:30am but please refer to the times of your particular club. To reduce the interaction, parents/guardians will not be required to drop off or collect inside the school – where possible our teams will collect from school gate or designated drop off/collection area specific to each school.
At the end of the session Key Stage 2 children are released to make their own way to their classes, while Key Stage 1 children are escorted to their class teacher or a designated drop off point.
After School Club
Key Stage 1 children are collected or dropped to a designated meeting point while Key Stage 2 make their own way to the club.
Children are able to go outside as soon as possible each day (normally once everyone is registered and the playground has cleared). Children are able to flow between the indoor and outdoor area. Children can freely play outside, taking advantage of the school facilities including adventure play areas where they are available. There is also equipment such as skipping ropes and sports equipment, as well as go karts and scooters at some clubs too.
In line with our Safe Practice Guidance – We will continue to use outdoor activities as much as possible and schools have provided us with extra space to accommodate the bubble requirements where required, enabling us to restrict some equipment for specific groups, in addition we have increased our cleaning requirements with daily checklists and products.
Parents can pick up at any time up until 6pm. All children must be signed out by an adult over 16 who is named on that child’s registration form.
Food and Snack
A snack is available for children on a rolling snack basis so children can decide when to eat. Healthy Eating Guidelines are followed and includes wraps or sandwiches with cheese or meat, vegetables, fruit and yoghurt. In small clubs all the children sit down together for a social snack. Food will also be available for children who arrive later (after attending an extra curricular club).
**Please note: all Energy Kidz Clubs are nut-free zones.**
NEW Menu & Safe Snack Setup
We will be changing our menu and supplies to ensure we continue to provide each child with nutritious breakfast and lite bite but reducing and minimising children having to make contact with the food. We have adapted our food preparation and menu, all food preparation is in line with Health & Hygiene requirements. In our larger clubs we will be staggering snack times within each respective bubble.
Items includes items such as; a selection of Cereals, Toast, Crumpets, Milk, Water and Fruit.
