Flintshire Summer Playscheme

To all Flintshire Parents and Carers.

The online registration process for summer playschemes will close from midday on Thursday 20th August, 2020. The county playscheme has now reached total capacity. This is in line with Welsh Government guidelines for Covid 19 and the delivery of play services.

This will enable us to manage the remainder of the scheme safely, for all children currently registered and our teams on site.

N.B. There is a parent/carer declaration within the form, specifically with regard to COVID 19.

Parent/Carer declaration – I agree that under no circumstances will my child attend the playscheme if they:

•    Feel unwell, have any of the four identified COVID-19 symptoms (a new continuous cough, a high temperature or loss of taste or smell) or they have tested positive to COVID-19 in the past 7 days
•    Live in a household with someone who has symptoms of COVID-19 or has tested positive to COVID-19 in the past 14 days.

The majority of our team are returning staff from playscheme 2019. They will have undertaken a full enhanced DBS check and will have completed a full and comprehensive training programme. This Includes:  Risk management and health and Safety in the workplace (Including COVID 19 controls) First aid; Child protection and safeguarding; Disability Awareness and the delivery of playwork in compliance with COVID 19 measures

All children attending will have to be pre- registered to attend local playschemes.

In terms of the safe operation of our playschemes we are now in receipt of the guidance from Welsh Government. We will deliver our playschemes in 100% compliance with all of the guidance.

It was noted that the latest Statement from the First Minister regarding changes to restrictions (10/7/20) allows for Larger gatherings of up to 30 people to now be permitted provided they are outdoors where these are organised and supervised by a responsible person for sports and other leisure activities and classes:
Places at playscheme sessions 2020 will be limited to maximum of 28 children per session. Once we have received the forms, our team will contact families with regard to session availability, if oversubscribed. Sessions will be allocated fairly and equitably

There will be gel stations at access/exit registration points.

Our team will have prepared the site and all of the equipment safely, before each session

Please do not send any personal items with your children. No drinks or snacks to be brought onto site

We will provide water for each child and label their individual bottle clearly

Our team are determined to make this the best possible experience for children this summer.
