Location

Access to our setting may be slightly different due to restrictions regarding COVID 19. These are detailed below.

We are based in the first modular building next to the schools pitch, through the green gates to the left hand side.  Access is via the outside ramp. Please press both bells 1 & 2 and a member of staff will come to the door. No adults, other than staff will be allowed into the club building.

Routine

Please note that there will be some changes to our daily routine at the moment due to safety measures regarding COVID 19. These are detailed below.

Breakfast club – children can be dropped off from 8am. Please ring the bell at the door & a member of staff will collect your child from you. Please note that no adults are permitted to enter the portakabin in order to adhere to Government Social Distancing Guidelines.  They are served a variety of different breakfast food until 8:50am.  The children have access to all resources & activities in their allocated areas or can go outside to play.  Just before 9:00am the staff escort the children to school, until their teacher collects them.

After School – P1 are collected from the P1 area where a member of staff will be waiting . P2 & 3 children are taken to the dinner hall where they are met by the staff from their bubble. All other children make their own way from their class to G.O. Kids and enter their allocated area where they are greeted by the staff & a register is taken. Children are encouraged to wash their hands on entering the club, when using the toilet and before and after eating.  No child needs to leave the school grounds to get to G.O. Kids.  During registration staff will tell the kids what will be happening during the session and will remind them of our new rules regarding hygiene and safety.  All children are encouraged to play outside for most of the session.  We have access to the playground area directly outside the cabin & the schools football pitch and have lots of outdoor toys, however children are welcome to take toys from inside out.

Snack – We encourage our children to take an active part in the selection & preparation of all of our snack options.  All of our snack options take into account our Healthy Eating policy & also consider any allergy or dietary requirements in the club.  Children eat snack in their group area or outside, they are encouraged to wash their hands before and after eating.  All cultural dietary requirements are respected & vegetarian options will always be available.  Snack begins at 4pm.  The children are encouraged to come into the snack room & at least have a drink of water & a piece of fruit if they do not want to try the snack on offer.

Children are then free to play with any of the resources on offer.  These include; arts & crafts materials, board games, construction toys (e.g. Lego & Kennex), imaginative play resources (e.g. kitchen area, shop area/toys, dress up costumes); Outdoor resources such as balls, bats, scooters, skate boards and much more.  If there is anything in particular that your child enjoys doing please let the staff know.  We are more than happy to source any toys/activities that we don’t already have. Children are discouraged from bringing in any toys from home so that we can ensure that all resources are clean and safe for the children to play with.

Children can be collected any time before 6pm from the portacabin door/school gate.  No adults, other than staff, will be permitted into the club building to adhere to current Social Distancing rules. Please let us know if they will be collected by someone who does not usually collect them or is not on the preapproved list on your registration form.
