Covid-19 Risk Assessment

Date reviewed: 12/06/20

This is a supporting document to our General Risk Assessment, aimed at providing
additional considerations to be taken during the outbreak of COVID19.

Definitions:
  • Hazard – something with the potential to cause harm.
  • Risk – the likelihood of the harm being realised and the severity.
All Bee Active employees will have the responsibility for ensuring that there are suitable and sufficient risk assessments for the settings that they deliver in. They may delegate the task of carrying out the assessment to “competent” staff. Competency for the purpose of carrying out a risk assessment means: – An understanding of the work activity and best practice; – An understanding of the regulations they are complying with; – The ability to be objective and remain impartial. Employees of both the settings and Bee Active will be expected to comply with preventative measures identified by risk assessments. Failure to do so may put themselves or others at risk.

Reduced capacity & daily bubbles.

Daily bubbles with a maximum of 15 children per bubble, grouped by age and to remain consistent each day (where possible)

Dedicated coaching team per bubble.

2 Bee Active coaches per full bubble who will remain with the bubble and host venue for the duration of the Summer holidays.

Social distancing.

Activities will be adapted and parents / carers will be asked to wait in turn and follow direction markers during collection and drop off.

‘Home rooms’ for each bubble.

If sessions can not take place outdoors, bubbles will be in their home rooms, where their belongings and craft packs are stored.

Cleaning and sanitisation.

Daily deep cleans, with regular hand washing and rigid procedures for frequent spot cleaning of sports equipment and key contact points.

Only essential personal belongings.

Packed lunch, snacks, drink and suitable clothing for the weather. Books, technology and toys should stay at home for now.

Contactless temperature checks.

We have invested in contactless thermometers for each venue and will check the temperatures of all children and staff each day.

First aid.

Each bubble will have it own first aid kit with additional PPE if required. The Bee Active team would break social distancing in an emergency.

We are in un-chartered territory and doing all we can to provide a safe, fun and
meaningful experience for your children.

Covid-19 Risk Assessment for Holiday Clubs & Key Worker Childcare

DescriptionWho could be harmed?Action to be takenBy Who?When
Protecting Clinically vulnerable children.Greater risk of complications for shielded and clinically vulnerable children and young peopleShielded and clinically vulnerable children and young peopleFor the vast majority of children and young people, coronavirus (COVID-19) is a mild illness. Children and young people (0 to 18 years of age) who have been classed as clinically extremely vulnerable due to pre-existing medical conditions have been advised to shield. The government does not expect these children to be attending school or college, and have encouraged schools to continue to support these children at home as much as possible. Clinically vulnerable (but not clinically extremely vulnerable) people are those considered to be at a higher risk of severe illness from coronavirus (COVID-19). A small minority of children will fall into this category, and parents should follow medical advice if their child is in this category. Bee Active advises all parents of children that are clinically vulnerable to seek and follow the medical advice of their childs Dr before making a booking. Bee Active staffAt the point of booking
Protecting Extremely Clinically vulnerable children.Greater risk of complications for extremely clinically vulnerable children and young peopleExtremely Clinically vulnerable children and young people.It is the recommendation of Bee Active that children categorised as Extremely Clinically vulnerable follow the government advice and do not attend our clubs at this time. If this applies to you please contact Bee Active for free support activity ideas to do at home and we would be happy to help. Bee Active staffAt the point of booking
Protecting Clinically vulnerable staff.Greater risk of complications for clinically vulnerable staff. Clinically vulnerable staff. The government advises that clinically vulnerable individuals who are at higher risk of severe illness (for example, people with some pre-existing conditions as set out in the Staying at home and away from others (social distancing) www.gov.uk/government/publications/staying-alert-and-safe-social-distancing/staying-alert-and-safe-social-distancing#clinically-vulnerable-people ) have been advised to take extra care in observing social distancing and should work from home where possible. Education and childcare settings should endeavour to support this, for example by asking staff to support remote education, carry out lesson planning or other roles which can be done from home. If clinically vulnerable (but not clinically extremely vulnerable) individuals cannot work from home, they should be offered the safest available on-site roles, staying 2 metres away from others wherever possible, although the individual may choose to take on a role that does not allow for this distance if they prefer to do so. If they have to spend time within 2 metres of other people, settings must carefully assess and discuss with them whether this involves an acceptable level of risk Bee Active will ensure that clinically vulnerable staff are working from home where their role permits. Where the responsibilities of the job role do not permit the staff member to undertake their job from home, Bee Active will consider this in the individuals return to work interview and individual risk assessment. Clinically vulnerable staff will be supported in maintaining 2 m social distance from children at all times. If a child requires assistance that will break the 2m rule (such as first aid) we request that the other support staff member within the bubble would administer this first aid in place of the clinically vulnerable staff member. Roles and responsibilities of a clinically vulnerable staff member will be discussed and addressed on a case by case basis to ensure that both Bee Active and the staff member are comfortable with the given responsibilities.

Protecting Clinically extremely vulnerable staff.Greater risk of complications for extremely clinically vulnerable staff. Extremely Clinically vulnerable staff.The government advises that clinically extremely vulnerable individuals are not to work outside the home. the government also strongly advising that people, including education staff, who are clinically extremely vulnerable (those with serious underlying health conditions which put them at very high risk of severe illness from coronavirus (COVID-19) and have been advised by their clinician or through a letter) to rigorously follow shielding measures in order to keep themselves safe. Staff in this position are advised not to attend work. advice here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-on-shielding-and-protecting-extremely-vulnerable-persons-from-covid-19 Bee Active are not asking clinically extremely vulnerable staff to return to work at this time unless they are able to work from home. Extremely clinically vulnerable staff will not be expected to attend any setting where children are present.Bee Active staffAt the point of return to work discussions
Protecting Children and Staff living with a shielded or clinically vulnerable personRisk of greater complications from COVID19 for a shielded or clinically vulnerable personClinically vulnerable staff and children.If a child, young person or a member of staff lives with someone who is clinically vulnerable (but not clinically extremely vulnerable), including those who are pregnant, they can attend Bee Active Key Worker Care or Holiday Club. Bee Active staff
Protecting Children and Staff living with an extremely clinically vulnerable personRisk of greater complications from COVID19 for an extremely clinically vulnerable personClinically extremely vulnerable staff and children.The government advises that if a child, young person or staff member lives in a household with someone who is extremely clinically vulnerable, as set out in the COVID-19: guidance on shielding and protecting people defined on medical grounds as extremely vulnerable guidance,https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-on-shielding-and-protecting-extremely-vulnerable-persons-from-covid-19 it is advised they only attend an education or childcare setting if stringent social distancing can be adhered to and, in the case of children, they are able to understand and follow those instructions. This may not be possible for very young children and older children without the capacity to adhere to the instructions on social distancing. If stringent social distancing cannot be adhered to, we do not expect those individuals to attend. They should be supported to learn or work at home. Bee Active advises that despite every effort being made to maintain a social distance of 2m, there is a strong chance it could be compromised at some point especially by younger children. As we cannot guarantee 100% adherence to social distancing due to the unpredictable nature of children, we must express that we advise that clinically extremely vulnerable, and those living with clinically extremely vulnerable persons should not attend our club. Parents will be advised as such during the online booking process.
Preventing the Spread of COVID19Persons feeling unwell prior to arrival, or at the point of arrival to clubs or sessions.Staff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.At the point of booking, all parties should be made aware, that they should not attend any session, or care provision if they or any member of their household is displaying any signs or symptoms of COVID19. These are as follows: - A new, continuous cough or a high temperature Staff and volunteers should be made aware prior to arriving at work that they should not attend if they or anyone in their household is displaying any signs or symptoms of COVID19. These are as follows: - a new, continuous cough or a high temperature A senior member of the BA team or Setting SLT should visually check all incoming parties (staff, children and parents) for signs of illness. It is reasonable for the team to question those arriving about signs and symptoms. Any party who is experiencing symptoms or lives with someone experiencing symptoms, should not be admitted into the session and should return to their home immediately and self isolate with their household following the latest government staying at home guidance here: www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance If a member of staff is sent home or needs to isolate they should inform their relevant management team (BA or setting management team) asap so that we can ensure that correct adult to child ratios are still being observed.Bee Active and Setting StaffPrior to arrival and ongoing.
Preventing the Spread of COVID19Persons developing symptoms during a session or club.Staff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.If staff, young people or children become unwell on site with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature they should be sent home. If they are unable to leave immediately in their own transport, they should be isolated while awaiting their collection. Children under 18 should be supervised by one adult, if safe and appropriate, in an open air space away from equipment, minimising the risk of transfer to the accompanying staff member. If a child is awaiting collection, and it is not safe or appropriate for them to be in an open air space, they should be moved, if possible and if appropriate, to a room where they can be isolated behind a closed door. Settings should be mindful of individual children’s needs – for example it would not be appropriate for younger children to be alone without adult supervision. Ideally, a window should be opened for ventilation. If it is not possible to isolate them, move them to an area which is at least 2 metres away from other people. If they need to go to the bathroom while waiting to be collected, they should use a separate bathroom if possible. The bathroom should be cleaned and disinfected using standard cleaning products before being used by anyone else. If they need clinical advice, they (or their teacher, parent or guardian) should go online to NHS 111 (or call 111 if they don't have internet access). In an emergency, call 999 if they are seriously ill or injured or their life is at risk. Do not visit the GP, pharmacy, urgent care centre or a hospital. If a member of staff has helped someone who was taken unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature, they do not need to go home unless they develop symptoms themselves. They should wash their hands thoroughly for 20 seconds after any contact with someone who is unwell. All household members of the unwell person must leave together, this includes siblings and parents that may also be on site as staff or volunteers. Once an unwell person has been identified care should be taken to thoroughly clean down all surfaces and equipment that they have been in contact with. Bee Active and Setting StaffOngoing observation.
Correctly managing a confirmed case of COVID19Confirmed Cases of COVID19 within our club. Staff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.When a child, young person or staff member develops symptoms compatible with coronavirus, they should be sent home and advised to self-isolate for 7 days. Their fellow household members should self-isolate for 14 days. All staff and students who are attending an education or childcare setting will have access to a test if they display symptoms of coronavirus, and are encouraged to get tested in this scenario. Where the child, young person or staff member tests negative, they can return to their setting and the fellow household members can end their self-isolation. Where the child, young person or staff member tests positive, the rest of their bubble or group within the setting should be sent home and advised to self-isolate for 14 days. The other household members of that wider bubble or group do not need to self-isolate unless the child, young person or staff member they live with in that group subsequently develops symptoms. Any siblings or household members of a child or staff member that has tested positive must also be sent home, but not their entire bubble. As part of the national test and trace programme, if other cases are detected within the cohort or in the wider setting, Public Health England local health protection teams will conduct a rapid investigation and will advise schools and other settings on the most appropriate action to take. In some cases a larger number of other children, young people may be asked to self-isolate at home as a precautionary measure – perhaps the whole class, site or year group. Where settings are observing guidance on infection prevention and control, which will reduce risk of transmission, closure of the whole setting will not generally be necessary.Bee Active, Public Health England, and NHS Track and Trace Service. Following a confirmed case.
Preventing the Spread of COVID19Cleaning of contaminated areas.Staff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.Cleaning an area with normal household disinfectant after someone with suspected coronavirus (COVID-19) has left will reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people. If an area can be kept closed and secure for 72 hours, wait until this time has passed for cleaning as the amount of virus living on surfaces will have reduced significantly by 72 hours. Wherever possible, wear disposable or washing-up gloves and aprons for cleaning. These should be double-bagged, then stored securely for 72 hours then thrown away in the regular rubbish after cleaning is finished. Using a disposable cloth, first clean hard surfaces with warm soapy water. Then disinfect these surfaces with the cleaning products you normally use. Pay particular attention to frequently touched areas and surfaces, such as bathrooms, grab-rails in corridors and stairwells and door handles. If an area has been heavily contaminated, such as with visible bodily fluids, from a person with coronavirus (COVID-19), consider using protection for the eyes, mouth and nose, as well as wearing gloves and an apron. Wash hands regularly with soap and water for 20 seconds, and after removing gloves, aprons and other protection used while cleaning. Government advice can be found and followed here: www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-decontamination-in-non-healthcare-settings/covid-19-decontamination-in-non-healthcare-settingsBee Active and Setting StaffFollowing the identification and removal of an unwell person or known COVID19 case.
Preventing the Spread of COVID19Waste Disposal following contaminated area cleaning.Staff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.Waste should be disposed of in a foot operated pedal bin that closes to reduce the spread. Waste from possible cases and cleaning of areas where possible cases have been (including disposable cloths and tissues): Should be put in a plastic rubbish bag and tied when full. The plastic bag should then be placed in a second bin bag and tied. It should be put in a suitable and secure place and marked for storage until the individual’s test results are known. Waste should be stored safely and kept away from children. You should not put your waste in communal waste areas until negative test results are known or the waste has been stored for at least 72 hours.If the individual tests negative, this can be put in with the normal waste if the individual tests positive, then store it for at least 72 hours and put in with the normal waste storage for at least 72 hours is not appropriate, arrange for collection as a Category B infectious waste either by your local waste collection authority if they currently collect your waste or otherwise by a specialist clinical waste contractor. They will supply you with orange clinical waste bags for you to place your bags into so the waste can be sent for appropriate treatment. BA staff should contact a member of the BA management team who will assist with this process.

Preventing the Spread of COVID19 through routine and as needed cleaning schedules. Routine End of Day deep cleaning.Staff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.Bee Active staff will be responsible for the stringent routine cleaning of their communal walkways and bubble spaces at their venues. Throughout the day the bubble staff should be cleaning frequently touched contact points as detailed below. In addition to this it is expected that each venue is deep cleaned at the end of each day. This is to preserve the safety of the 'daily bubble structure'. Coaches are expected to clean: - All door handles on their routes in, around and exiting the venue. - The sign in station: Computer mouse, key board, screen, check in desk and chair. - Home Rooms: Desks, craft kits, chairs, toilets, sinks. - The sports equipment used by the children in your bubble, ready for kit rotation with another bubble. This should take place with standard cleaning products. Staff will be provided with disposable gloves and aprons to wear during this time. Bee Active staff and Management TeamOngoing and at set intervals during the day.
Preventing the Spread of COVID19Surface contamination and ongoing cleaning as needed.Staff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces more often than usual (regularly throughout the day) using your standard cleaning products. High frequency contact points should be cleaned as required throughout the day, this includes (but is not limited to) external door handles, hand washing taps, toilet/bathroom door handles. Consider where possible and without compromising safeguarding if doors can be propped open to minimise contact. This should take place with standard cleaning products. Staff will be provided with disposable gloves and aprons to wear during this time. Bee Active and Setting StaffPrior to beginning the session, ongoing throughout the day and at the end of all sessions.
Safe issue and handling of cleaning products.Safe handling of cleaning products, soaps and sanitizers.Staff, Children, and Volunteers.Bee Active staff will be provided with their own cleaning kit for the purpose of sanitizing equipment. The kit will include, multi purpose cleaner, sanitizing wipes and hand gel. Along with disposable cloths, gloves, aprons and bin bags. Staff will be advised on the safe use and storage of the kit at the point of issuing. The kit and its contents will be kept with the coach at all times and kept out of reach of children. Where this is not possible Coaches are encouraged to return it to their vehicle in between use. It is the responsibility of the coach to replenish their kit from the provisions at the Bee Active office. If a coaches individual RA states that they are not to attend the office, then they should inform a member of the management team when kit supplies are running low. All Bee Active staff.Ongoing.
The spread of COVID19 via surface contamination.Spreading Covid19 specifically through the use of fixed and shared apparatus and equipment required for the playing of sports and craft activities. Staff, children and the wider community. Fixed playground apparatus should not be used. No shared gym equipment is to be used. No piece of equipment that travels , or is passed from one person to another should be used. Limit equipment used when planning and delivering activities, minimal - no equipment preferred. Guidance states that equipment should not be shared. If there is capacity to facilitate it, each child should have their own easily identifiable piece of equipment. This piece of kit should only be touched and returned by this one child. At the end of the lesson the kit should be returned to a box/bucket by the children (one at a time). After the lesson the coach will then clean and sanitize all equipment including the bucket or box. As well as interim cleaning between lessons the coach will be expected to deep clean the kit before loading it into his/her vehicle at the end of the session. This will ensure that only clean kit is carried in both company and individual vehicles. Equipment provided should be non porous and easy to clean. This would exclude kit such as ropes and beanbags. Ensure that kit and equipment that is 'tempting' to grab habitually is locked away or out of sight. Each child will have their own craft supplies, likely to be pens, pencils, scissors, and a glue stick. This will remain theirs for the entirety of the time that they are at our club. This will be kept in a sealed ziplock bag with their name on, and will be located on their individual desk within their bubbles home room. Once a child has left our club the individual craft bag will be taken in and the contents cleaned thoroughly before being placed into a clean zip lock bag to be used by another child. Sports coaches and Bee Active Management. Ongoing.
The spread of COVID 19 via poor hand hygiene.Spreading Covid19 specifically through the touching of frequently touched surfaces, such as door handles, signing in screens.Staff, Children and the Wider community. Coaches are expected to wash their hands thoroughly upon entering and before leaving a setting. Coaches should also wash hands in between class sessions. Hand washing should be thorough for 20 seconds or more and using soap, drying on paper towels. WHO Hand washing link here - https://youtu.be/3PmVJQUCm4E Every effort should be made to find a hand washing sink, however when one is not available coaches are encouraged to use hand sanitizer. How to use Hand Sanitizer link- https://youtu.be/4xC-_7ZiQoY Bee Active will provide all staff with a personal hand sanitizing bottle that should be on their person at all times. It is the responsibility of the coach to advise management in a timely manner when a refill is required. Sports coaches and Bee Active Management. Ongoing.
Preventing the Spread of COVID19Person to person contaminationStaff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.Discuss with young children daily the importance of good hand hygiene. Supervise young children to ensure they wash their hands for 20 seconds more often than usual with soap and water or hand sanitiser and catch coughs and sneezes in tissues. Everyone should hand wash on entry, before eating food and prior to going home. Additional hand washing opportunities should be highlighted by the BA coach or setting staff where he/she feels it is appropriate. Coaches should not offer hand sanitizer to children, as it may cause irritation to the skin. Where possible water and drinks should not be refillable at communal water fountains. Encourage children to bring enough to drink from home. If water bottles must be refilled this should be supervised by an adult to ensure that the bottle does not touch the tap. Hand shaking and hand to hand contact games (such as circle games like 'The farmers in his den') should be removed from the programme of activities. Activities that require minimal hand contact are preferable. For example: football. Bee Active and Setting StaffOngoing throughout the day.
Preventing the Spread of COVID19Airborne spread of COVID19.Staff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.Ensure good respiratory hygiene by promoting the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach. Where possible all spaces should be well ventilated using natural ventilation (opening windows) or ventilation units.Bee Active and Setting StaffOngoing throughout the day.
Daily Routine and HousekeepingAccess to the club, including pickup and drop off. Staff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.Bee Active will clearly mark 2m waiting markers outside of the venue entrance. These should be placed safely away from traffic or moving vehicles. See site specific RA's for further details. We request during the booking process that drop off and collection is limited to one parent or carer per family and all groups arriving at site adhere to the floor marked 2M markers while queuing to enter the club. We will also make Parents or Carers aware at the point of booking that we reserve the right to undertake temperature tests, request a verbal declaration of health daily, and have the right to refuse entry (with a full refund) if we believe a child to be ill. Bee Active and Setting StaffDuring booking process and ongoing throughout the day.
Daily Routine and HousekeepingRatios, Supervision and Bubble groups. Staff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.Children will be placed into a daily bubble with other children of similar ages. Bubbles will be capped at a capacity of 15 children. Siblings are not required to be in the same bubble. Consideration has been made about siblings being grouped together in a bubble, this will be at the coaches discretion if the siblings are close in age. Parents were surveyed and consistently prefered children to be grouped by age for social wellbeing. Each bubble will be referred to as a coloured group name and will remain the same name throughout the summer. This will allow us to keep a clear record on registers of which children have been in which group, and with which staff, throughout the course of the summer. Coach to child ratios have been increased to 2:15. Children will be supervised by the same 2 coaches daily within their bubble. These two factors will ensure that children do not get combined or cared for by a different coach during AM/PM wrap around care. Every effort will be made to ensure that the coaches for each bubble remain constant throughout the summer (allowing a tolerance for illness and annual leave)Bee Active and Setting StaffOngoing throughout the day.
Daily Routine and HousekeepingToiletingStaff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.As of July 1st 2020 the government have released holiday club specific guidence on toileting that reads as follows: It is not necessary for each class or group to use a separate toilet. However, you should consider how you can limit the number of children using the toilet at any one time and, where possible, you should avoid different groups using the same facilities at the same time. Importantly, you should promote good hand hygiene and encourage all children to wash their hands thoroughly, with soap and running water for 20 seconds, after using toilet facilities. As with all frequently used surfaces, toilets should be cleaned thoroughly using standard products such as detergent and bleach. The frequency of cleaning required will depend on usage but is advised to be more frequently than might have been previously considered appropriate. In most cases we expect cleaning of toilet facilities to take place at least twice a day, and in particular between use by different classes and groups. Where possible Bee Active advises coaches are advised to continue to use seperate facilities per bubble. This will mitigate any additional risk and is a sensible precaution. However we recognise that where this is not possible a club may still be able to operate safetly using shared facilities with frequent anf thorough cleaning. this will be addressed at a site specific level in the site specific RA. Coaches should consider how many children will be able to go to the toilet at a time and still be able to adhere to social distancing. If toilets are small then children should go to the toilet one at a time to allow for social distancing measures. Bee Active and Setting StaffOngoing throughout the day.

Daily Routine and HousekeepingStaffing- Lunch breaks, Illness and Annual leaveLunch breaks: 2 coaches will work within one bubble. 1 coach will be on the early shift and 1 coach will be on the late shift. The coach on the early shift will break first, the coach on the late will break following their return. As per our General COVID19 Risk Assessment the coaches will be expected to bring their own food with them, (already prepared) and expected to avoid vending machines, and trips to buy food during the working day. (I refer here to the general COVID19 RA- staff should not be attending any other setting in their uniform, including supermarket shopping) Annual Leave- Any coach wishing to take annual leave over the summer period must submit their request prior to Monday 6th July. This allows ample time for the management team to assess the needs of each club, and will allow for a maximum of one staff member per club to be off at any one time. This will in turn limit the amount of cover needed and allow for continuation of routine at a club level. Coaches who have annual leave granted must put together a comprehensive hand over document so that a smooth transition can be made, limiting the amount of routine change for the children and other staff members. Where possible management will replace coaches that take annual leave with staff that have not been working in other schools. At present we don't envisage any issues with this model as we have staff on furlough that are not currently in contact with any other children. COVID19 related Staff Illness- Please see section for 'confirmed cases of COVID19 within our club' protocol. NON- COVID19 Illness- If a staff member needs to take time off work with a clearly identifiable non COVID19 related illness, the management team will endeavour to replace them with a staff member that has not been working in other schools. At present we don't envisage any issues with this model as we have staff on furlough that are not currently in contact with any other children. If a staff member needs to go home half way through a day the other coach in that bubble may be asked to come in early or extend their shift in order to preserve the bubble while alternative provision is put in place. Bee Active staff and Management TeamOngoing throughout the summer.
Daily Routine and HousekeepingBreak Times for Children Staff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.Children will still receive regular breaks from structured activities. At each venue there will be ample outside space to allow each bubble to have their own designated spaces. This will mean that breaks could take place simultaneously. This will allow the children to wave and communicate with other groups from a distance. We recognise that this club is here to build and reinforce social and emotional strength and value the importance of seeing other children outside of one bubble. Site specific risk assessments will address the spaces available to each bubble. If children are unable to have their own designated outside space then breaks should be staggered. This is addressed in the site specific RA. Older children (at the discretion of the coaches) will be allowed to play with their designated kit for the day, with close supervision to ensure that social distancing is maintained and sharing of kit does not take place. Previous clubs have allowed children to bring along their own bike/scooter at the discretion of their parents, to be used during free time and provided that they wear a helmet. Now that we are not able to assist with the fastening of a helmet, and given that this increases the risk of needing to administer first aid we ask that children do not bring their own bikes or scooter to club, unless taking place in a scheduled Bikeability session (see Learn to Ride RA)Bee Active staff and Management TeamOngoing
Daily Routine and HousekeepingVenue OrganizationStaff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.Within the venue each bubble will have their own 'Home room' this will be exclusively used by one bubble. The room will be set out with chairs and desks at a 2m distance. This is where children will spend their time during wrap around care and also provides a safe space to store belongings and eat lunch. Children will have their own designated desk and chair. Coaches will be considerate of the social and emotional well being of the children, seating them at adjacent desks to accommodate existing bonds/ friendships and to encourage new ones. Children will be asked to keep their coat on the back of their chair and their bag under their seat. On each desk the children will have their own bag of craft supplies for the day including pens, pencils, glue sticks and scissors. If children are attending club the following day these can remain on their desk. If children are not attending the following day or other day that week, the craft bag will be collected in by the coach, cleaned and bagged in a new bag for another child on another day. At the end of the day the coach will include a wiping down of the desks and chairs in their clean down procedure. At this point any lost property will be collected in and bagged up in a clean plastic carrier bag. It will be labeled with a description of the item inside and stored by the lead coach. All staff and children on site. Ongoing
Preventing the Spread of COVID19Staff equipment and transferablesStaff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.BA computer keyboard and mouse should be cleaned at the start of each day and should be used where possible only by the senior member of staff on duty to prevent cross contamination. All staff equipment that is used should be cleaned in between uses, or in between groups. It should also be cleaned again at the end of the day. Cash payments should be avoided- this will be communicated to parents at the point of booking. Where possible card payment via the booking website is prefered. Some venues may also be carrying the 'Sum up' card readers that will allow on the day contactless payment. If a cash payment can not be avoided it is recommended that the staff member handling the money uses their hand sanitizer or hand washes immediately after and before touching the keyboard to log the payment on the register. Passports and certificates are to be updated by the bubble coaches at the end of the day and left on a table in reception for the children to review or take home at the point of exit. This removes the need to continually hand them back and forth throughout the day. Prizes will be displayed on a table rather than a box. children should be asked to only touch the prize that they wish to take home. If prizes include a stock of whistles the children should be made aware that this is for home use only and not to be brought back into club during the COVID19 pandemic. whistles encourage hand to mouth contamination. The incident report pad and bump notebook for each venue will remain at the front desk. if a staff member uses the book they must wipe down the cover before and after use. It is advised at staff members name label their own pen and keep it in their pocket throughout the day. This will remove an opportunity for cross contamination between bubbles. Bee Active and Setting StaffPrior to beginning the session, ongoing throughout the day and at the end of all sessions.
The spread of COVID19 via surface contamination.Specifically the spread of COVID19 relating to the consumption of food and drink whilst at a Bee Active holiday club or with face and mouth contact such as the sharing of drinks bottles, bibs, bands. Staff, Children and the Wider community. Coaches should have their own drinks bottle, clearly labeled with their name. As stated in the section on staff breaks we advise coaches to bring their food with them, ready prepared. This should be kept in the bubble home room on the coaches desk. Staff should not use vending machines to purchase food or drinks. Children are encouraged to bring clearly labeled water bottles to a session with them. These bottles should be stored on the childs home room desk or placed down around the perimeter of the room or space, at least 2m apart. Remind children that they should not share. Children will be asked to bring their own lunch in a clearly labeled lunch bag. It is advised that parents only send children with food items that they can open and eat independently. This avoids unnecessary breach of the social distancing guidelines. Children will eat at their desk in their home room, or outside on fair weather days in a pic nic style, socially distanced format. Coaches should avoid using whistles, unless in emergencies. Sports coaches and Bee Active Management. Discussed with the setting prior to arrival and ongoing.
Daily Routine and HousekeepingAdministering first aid and medicineStaff, Children and the Wider community. Social distancing will be broken if a child requires first aid to be administered by a coach. Coaches are provided with masks, aprons, and gloves to wear whilst breaking social distancing. Coaches are permitted to have discretionary contact with a child they feel needs emotional support following bump. This is at the discretion of the coach. We recognise that due to the caring nature of individuals working within a childcare setting that it is very likely that at times our staff may feel the need to comfort a child with a hug, especially with our younger children. In this instance we recognise that the social and emotional needs of a child can outweigh the need for social distancing. We recognise that on occasion Children need to take routine medications such as inhalers, or allergy medications such as eye drops. Coaches will not be able to administer routine medications to children. Coaches will be able to store required medications. Coaches will be expected to oversee the administration of a medicine, to ensure correct dosage is adhered to. All medicine must be signed in using a medicine form that is completed and signed by the parent, where explicit permission, timing and dosages must be clearly given. Coaches will ensure from a distance that the correct dosage is adhered to. If it is unsafe for a child to administer their own medication, or if it is administered incorrectly, the child may not be able to attend club, and/or may be sent home.

Daily Routine and HousekeepingActivitiesStaff, Children and the Wider community. The Bee Active team have put together a list of over 100 appropriate and COVID safe activities. This can be accessed by all coaches via our internal Drive system. Coaches are continually supported by each other and management with exciting new and safe ideas. Coaches should note that there may be an additional risk of infection in environments where you or others are singing, chanting, shouting or conversing loudly. This applies even if others are at a distance to you. You should consider this added risk in environments that require children or adults to raise their voice to communicate with anyone outside their household and consider how to reduce the risk by avoiding particular activities in your setting, such as group singing activities for example. Further, more detailed DfE guidance on music and singing for September onwards will be published shortly.Bee Active staff and Management TeamOngoing.
Daily Routine and HousekeepingSEND Staff, Children and the Wider community. Children with SEND are permitted to attend Bee Active clubs on a case by case basis, where by a member of the management team discusses the ongoing needs and capabilities of the child before or at the point of booking. We want to provide an enriching experience for all children but must ensure that it is safe and suitable for the SEND child and other club members. Whereby a child usually receives 1:1 and/or personal care at a school setting, it is unlikely that Bee Active will be able to match that at a holiday club setting. Additionally now we must consider if the child will be capable of understanding and adhering to the principles of social distancing. All children are different and will be considered on a case by case basis. Parents of SEND children should contact the office directly if they would like their child to attend a Bee Active club. Bee Active staff, Management Team and Parent collaboration. Ongoing.
Daily Routine and HousekeepingBehaviour ManagementStaff, Children and the Wider community. Coaches are encouraged to understand that it may take a little longer than usual for good behaviour patterns to be established, this is due to the fact that many children will have been isolating with only their siblings or possibly alone. The usual 5 step Behaviour Bee Active behaviour management system must be adhered to correctly and children must follow it for the safety of themselves and others. As is the final step of the behaviour management plan children must be sent home if they are unable to abide by club rules. This is more important now than ever as social distancing plays a huge part in keeping us all safe. Children will only be guided by their bubble coaches. Bee Active staff and Management TeamOngoing.
Daily Routine and HousekeepingCOVID 19 communication proceduresStaff, Children, Volunteers,Parents, Guardians and the wider community.At the point of booking parents will be asked to give multiple methods of contact, It is important that parents provide an additional contact number at this point. We will use these details to communicate any issues that we may encounter. Please note that we reserve the right to share these contact details with the NHS test and trace service if asked by them to do so. Verbal communications with children should be regular and clear. Bee Active will also design and display COVID19 actions and 'rules' that must be adhered to as a visual reminder to children throughout the day. Bee Active staff and Management TeamAt the point of booking
Daily Routine and HousekeepingEmergency evacuation All persons on site.It is recommended that coaches familiarise themselves with the existing site specific fire procedure. This should note the closest exits to the new 'Home Room' spaces that may have never been used by club attendees or BA Staff. Please check with your site if they have the space to remain social distanced in their usual fire assembly point and if not what is the suggested alternative provision. As is procedure with any holiday club coaches are expected to include evacuation procedure instructions in their daily briefings whenever a new attendee is present at club. Bee Active make whistles available for their staff for instances where whistles are necessary for fire or evacuation procedure. Staff should have their own labed whistle on them at all times. These should never be shared, even when cleaning has taken place. Bee Active staff and Management TeamOngoing.
Daily Routine and HousekeepingParking and accessStaff, Children, Volunteers,Parents, Guardians and the wider community.Parking at some of our venues is sparse. It is advised parking at drop off and collection allows for social distancing. If space allows the coach may wish to come off every other parking space. This should be addressed in the individual site risk assessment. Only one parent should bring their child to the door. Parents will not enter the building at drop off or pick up. Bee Active staff and Management TeamOngoing.
Daily Routine and HousekeepingClothing jewelry and footwearStaff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.As per our general Risk assessment children and staff should not be wearing jewelry to a Bee Active Session. One wrist watch is acceptable. It is advised at the point of booking that children attend club in shoes that they can comfortably take off and on independently. for younger children this may mean velcro or elasticated shoes are needed. This prevents unnecessary breach of the 2m social distancing advice. Bee Active staff and Management TeamOngoing.
House keepingVenue of multiple use.Staff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.If the holiday club is operated in a shared space such as a community centre, Bee Active should discuss infection protection and control measures with the owner of the space. For instance, discuss with the owner what measures are in place to clean the space between different groups of people using it and be clear on who is responsible for taking action if, for example, the timetable changes to more groups using the setting more frequently or government advice on cleaning changes. Senior coaches should check with their venue if the sapces are being used by other parties when not being used by holiday club provision. Bee Active will work with venue mangment to ensure that a stringent clean is taking place between uses.Bee Active staff and Management TeamBefore the start of Holiday clubs.

Covid-19 Risk Assessment for Teaching Physical Education

DescriptionWho could be harmed?Action to be takenBy Who?When
Government Statment:Schools have the flexibility to decide how physical education, sport and physical activity will be provided whilst following the measures in their system of controls. Pupils should be kept in consistent groups, sports equipment thoroughly cleaned between each use by different individual groups, and contact sports avoided. Outdoor sports should be prioritised where possible, and large indoor spaces used where it is not, maximising distancing between pupils and paying scrupulous attention to cleaning and hygiene. This is particularly important in a sports setting because of the way in which people breathe during exercise. External facilities can also be used in line with government guidance for the use of, and travel to and from, those facilities. Schools are able to work with external coaches, clubs and organisations for curricular and extra-curricular activities where they are satisfied that it is safe to do so. Schools should consider carefully how such arrangements can operate within their wider protective measures.
Coaches are unprepared for new changes in procedure in the post COVID 19 workplace. Lack of preparation could result in mistakes and errors being made in the workplace. Staff, children and the wider community. All coaches must read the entire BA Risk Assessment before returning to the workplace and must raise any concerns with management prior to their first day returning to work. All coaches must complete the return to work questionnaire. The questionnaire will determine the suitability of a return to work. Each individual will be risk assessed by the management team based on their own health and the health of their household among other factors. Coaches and Management.Prior to returning to work.
Coaches are unprepared for new changes in procedure in the post COVID 19 workplace. All schools are different and will pose their own individual risks, such as site layout, and pupils with special considerations. Poor planning could result in inadequate PPE, resources, and spaces. Staff, children and the wider community. It is paramount that coaches contact their venue/setting prior to arrival to determine the spaces available, class sizes and familiarise themselves with site specific COVID19 considerations. Ask your setting specifically if they have changed their fire proceedure due to Covid 19, if so make yourself familiar with the changes. It is advised that coaches keep an open narrative with their school via telephone or email as COVID19 continues. Coaches.Prior to attending a setting for the first time after the National Lock down period. With regular ongoing communications as the government continue to make changes, such as the phased return of further age groups.
Prevent Preventing the spread of Covid by Test and Trace.Staff, children and the wider community. Bee Active pledge to engage with the NHS test and trace service. We will do this by taking full contact details for children attending extra curricular clubs and comprehensive registers of attendees. Any staff displaying a sign or symptom of COVID19 will be immediately removed from a setting and will be made to take a test and isolate awaiting results.
Protecting Clinically vulnerable staff.Greater risk of complications for clinically vulnerable staff. Clinically vulnerable staff and extremely clinically vulnerable staff. Staff who are clinically extremely vulnerable: Gov advice now states: Rates of community transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19) are now reduced to levels below those seen when shielding was introduced. Shielding measures will therefore be paused from the 1 August 2020, with the exception of areas where local lockdown means that shielding will continue. Therefore, we advise that those who are clinically extremely vulnerable can return to school in September 2020 provided their school has implemented the system of controls outlined in this document, in line with the school’s own workplace risk assessment. In all respects, the clinically extremely vulnerable should now follow the same guidance as the clinically vulnerable population, taking particular care to practise frequent, thorough hand washing, and cleaning of frequently touched areas in their home and/or workspace. Staff who are clinically vulnerable Clinically vulnerable staff can return to school in September. While in school they should follow the sector-specific measures in this document to minimise the risks of transmission. Pregnant women are in the ‘clinically vulnerable’ category, and are generally advised to follow the above advice, which applies to all staff in schools. Employers should conduct a risk assessment for pregnant women in line with the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 (MHSW). Bee Active will continue to monitor the health of their staff and will continue to assess the health and safety risks posed by the evolving COVID19 pandemic.

PreventPersons feeling unwell prior to arrival, or at the point of arrival to clubs or sessions.Staff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.All host schools and settings should be made aware, that children and staff should not attend any session, if they or any member of their household is displaying any signs or symptoms of COVID19. These are as follows: - A new, continuous cough or a high temperature Staff and volunteers should be made aware prior to arriving at work that they should not attend if they or anyone in their household is displaying any signs or symptoms of COVID19. These are as follows: - a new, continuous cough or a high temperature A senior member of the BA team or Setting SLT should visually check all incoming parties (staff, children and parents) for signs of illness. It is reasonable for the team to question those arriving about signs and symptoms. Any party who is experiencing symptoms or lives with someone experiencing symptoms, should not be admitted into the session and should return to their home immediately and self isolate with their household following the latest government staying at home guidance here: www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance If a member of staff is sent home or needs to isolate they should inform their relevant management team (BA or setting management team) asap so that we can ensure that correct adult to child ratios are still being observed.Bee Active and Setting StaffPrior to arrival and ongoing.
PreventPersons feeling unwell during a session lead by Bee Active. If anyone in the school becomes unwell with a new and persistent cough or a high temperature, or has a loss of, or change in, their normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia), they must be sent home and advised to follow ‘stay at home: guidance for households with possible or confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection’, which sets out that they should self-isolate for at least 10 days and should arrange to have a test to see if they have coronavirus (COVID-19). If they have tested positive whilst not experiencing symptoms but develop symptoms during the isolation period, they should restart the 10 day isolation period from the day they develop symptoms. This only applies to those who begin their isolation on or after 30 July. Other members of their household (including any siblings) should self-isolate for 14 days from when the symptomatic person first had symptoms. If a child is awaiting collection, they should be moved, if possible, to a room where they can be isolated behind a closed door, depending on the age and needs of the child, with appropriate adult supervision if required. Ideally, a window should be opened for ventilation. If it is not possible to isolate them, move them to an area which is at least 2 metres away from other people. Coaches should identify the location of the isolation room at each of their settings prior to starting to coach. If they need to go to the bathroom while waiting to be collected, they should use a separate bathroom if possible. The bathroom must be cleaned and disinfected using standard cleaning products before being used by anyone else. Coaches must ensure that know the location of the bathroom at their setting. PPE must be worn by staff caring for the child while they await collection if a distance of 2 metres cannot be maintained (such as for a very young child or a child with complex needs). More information on PPE use can be found in the safe working in education, childcare and children’s social care settings, including the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) guidance. As is usual practice, in an emergency, call 999 if someone is seriously ill or injured or their life is at risk. Anyone with coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms should not visit the GP, pharmacy, urgent care centre or a hospital. Any members of staff who have helped someone with symptoms and any pupils who have been in close contact with them do not need to go home to self-isolate unless they develop symptoms themselves (in which case, they should arrange a test) or if the symptomatic person subsequently tests positive or they have been requested to do so by NHS Test and Trace. Everyone must wash their hands thoroughly for 20 seconds with soap and running water or use hand sanitiser after any contact with someone who is unwell. The area around the person with symptoms must be cleaned with normal household bleach after they have left to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people. See the COVID-19: cleaning of non-healthcare settings guidance. Public Health England is clear that routinely taking the temperature of pupils is not recommended as this is an unreliable method for identifying coronavirus (COVID-19).
PreventSpreading Covid19 specifically through the touching of frequently touched surfaces, such as door handles, signing in screens.Staff, Children and the Wider community. Coaches are expected to wash their hands thoroughly upon entering and before leaving a setting. Coaches should also wash hands in between class sessions. Children should be encouraged to safetly wash their hands at the start and end of every session. This is extremely important due to the nature of our staffing structure and the fact that staff can move between settings over the course of a week. Hand washing should be thorough for 20 seconds or more and using soap, drying on paper towels. WHO Hand washing link here - https://youtu.be/3PmVJQUCm4E Every effort should be made to find a hand washing sink, however when one is not available coaches are encouraged to use hand sanitizer. How to use Hand Sanitizer link- https://youtu.be/4xC-_7ZiQoY Bee Active will provide all staff with a personal hand sanitizing bottle that should be on their person at all times. It is the responsibility of the coach to advise management in a timely manner when a refill is required. Sports coaches and Bee Active Management. Ongoing.
PreventSpreading Covid19 specifically through the touching of frequently touched surfaces, such as door handles, signing in screens.Staff, Children and the Wider community. All coaches will encourage good respiratory hygeine by promoting the catch it , bin it, kill it approach. Some pupils with complex needs will struggle to maintain as good respiratory hygiene as their peers, for example those who spit uncontrollably or use saliva as a sensory stimulant. This should have been considered by the childs educational setting prior to the Bee Active session. It is the responsibility of the coach to ensure that they are familiar with each childs care plan and risk assessment prior to the start of the session. Risk assessments will be in place in order to support these pupils and the staff working with them, and is not a reason to deny these pupils face to face education. Public Health England does not (based on current evidence) recommend the use of face coverings in schools. This evidence will be kept under review. They are not required in schools as pupils and staff are mixing in consistent groups, and because misuse may inadvertently increase the risk of transmission. There may also be negative effects on communication and thus education. Face coverings are required at all times on public transport (except children under the age of 11), when attending a hospital as a visitor or outpatient, or when in a shop or a supermarket.Sports coaches and Bee Active Management. Ongoing.
The spread of COVID19 via surface contamination.Spreading Covid19 specifically through the use of fixed and shared apparatus and equipment required for the teaching of PE.Staff, children and the wider community. Fixed playground apparatus can be used if permitted by the venue or setting. Before proceeding with this coaches should ensure that they are following the setting/Venue RA advice for individual fixed aperatus. This will vary setting to setting. No shared gym equipment is to be used. No piece of equipment that travels , or is passed from one person to another should be used. Limit equipment used when planning and delivering activities, minimal - no equipment preferred. Guidance states that equipment should not be shared. If there is capacity to facilitate it, each child should have their own easily identifiable piece of equipment. This piece of kit should only be touched and returned by this one child. At the end of the lesson the kit should be returned to a box/bucket by the children (one at a time). After the lesson the coach will then clean and sanitize all equipment including the bucket or box. As well as interim cleaning between lessons the coach will be expected to deep clean the kit before loading it into his/her vehicle at the end of the session. This will ensure that only clean kit is carried in both company and individual vehicles. Equipment provided should be non porous and easy to clean. This would exclude kit such as ropes and beanbags. Ensure that kit and equipment that is 'tempting' to grab habitually is locked away or out of sight. Sports coaches and Bee Active Management. Ongoing.
The spread of COVID19 via surface contamination.Poor communication with Staff and pupils.Staff, Children and the Wider community. Communication is key. Call and email ahead. Keep an open line of communication with school in a remote way. Consider the use of google meet to video call with class teachers for the purpose of report writing and pupil updates. Communication with children must be clear and easily readable. A simplified visual based RA poster will be produced by Bee Active with new rules for safe PE. This will be sent to all Bee Active schools. If children in the PE lesson do not have sufficient command of the english language, attention or understanding then they should not participate in PE alongside their peers and alternative arrangements for physical education should be made. Use a socially distancing management system during PE lessons to ensure children are maintainging safe distances during activities. Bee Active are happy to use the system below or equally adhere to any system that the school has in place. Suggested socially distancing management system for PE: Coaches are encouraged to use the Bee Active traffic light system as a clear visual verbal indicator to the children. Green- Safe to proceed with the activity. Amber- Stay Alert. Remember to ensure 2m distance and proceed with caution. Red- Stop and reset to a 2m distance. Traffic light cards will be laminated and easy to clean and personal to each coach. Coaches should report any issues or considerations back to the Bee Active Management team asap so that the Risk Assessment and consideration of operation can be safe and helpful.Sports coaches and Bee Active Management.

The spread of COVID19 via surface contamination.Spreading of COVID19 by contact with the face and mouth such as the sharing of drinks bottles, bibs, bands. Staff, Children and the Wider community. Coaches should have their own drinks bottle, clearly labeled with their name. We advise coaches to bring as much water as they need with them each day to minimise the amount of time that they spend within a school setting. (Avoiding opportunities for additional contact such as having to go into the kitchen, staff room, or to a water fountain) Children are encouraged to bring clearly labeled water bottles to a lesson with them. These bottles should be placed down around the perimeter of the room or space, at least 2m apart. Remind children that they should not share. Coaches should avoid using whistles, unless in emergencies. Sports coaches and Bee Active Management. Discussed with the setting prior to arrival and ongoing.
Spreading Covid19 via personal contact.Spreading of COVID19 by lack of robust hygiene routine in children.Staff, Children and the Wider community. It is the role of the Coach to ensure that a robust hand hygiene is in place for their students. Coaches and children should wash their hands with soap before and after activity. Coaches should include good time for hand hygiene and cleaning in between each class. This should be discussed with the setting prior to arrival. Children should be given good space at the sink and so will need to allow additional time to allow for social distancing within bathrooms. Coaches should monitor the number of children permitted to use the bathroom at one time. Settings may choose to close 'middle stalls' to ensure social distancing can take place in bathrooms. Sports Coaches.Ongoing.
Spreading Covid19 via personal contact.Spreading COVID 19 via person to person contact when moving in and around the setting.Staff, Children and the Wider community. It is our aim to minimise contact between individuals and maintain social distancing wherever possible Bee Active coaches must consider how this is possible at each of their settings. Each school will have their own methods already in place and coaches should familiarise themselves with this. The overarching principle to apply is reducing the number of contacts between children and staff. This can be achieved through keeping groups separate (in ‘bubbles’) and through maintaining distance between individuals. These are not alternative options and both measures will help, but the balance between them will change depending on: children’s ability to distance the lay out of the school the feasibility of keeping distinct groups separate while offering a broad curriculum (especially at secondary or in the case of Bee Active where a specialism in PE is provided to several schools) It is likely that for younger children the emphasis will be on separating groups, and for older children it will be on distancing. For children old enough, they should also be supported to maintain distance and not touch staff where possible. Each school that Bee Active visits will have their own systems in place. It is paramount that Bee Active staff reduce all possible contact with children of all agers due to the nature of their role as a 'satelite teacher'. Points to consider and implement: How to group children Consistent groups reduce the risk of transmission by limiting the number of pupils and staff in contact with each other to only those within the group. They have been used in schools in the summer term in recognition that children, and especially the youngest children, cannot socially distance from staff or from each other and this provides an additional protective measure. Maintaining distinct groups or ‘bubbles’ that do not mix makes it quicker and easier in the event of a positive case to identify those who may need to self-isolate, and keep that number as small as possible. However, the use of small groups restricts the normal operation of schools and presents both educational and logistical challenges, including the cleaning and use of shared spaces, such as playgrounds, boarding houses, dining halls, and toilets, and the provision of specialist teaching. This is the case in both primary and secondary schools, but is particularly difficult in secondary schools. In this guidance for the autumn term, maintaining consistent groups remains important, but given the decrease in the prevalence of coronavirus (COVID-19) and the resumption of the full range of curriculum subjects, schools may need to change the emphasis on bubbles within their system of controls and increase the size of these groups. Schools should assess their circumstances and if class-sized groups are not compatible with offering a full range of subjects or managing the practical logistics within and around school, they can look to implement year group sized ‘bubbles’. Whatever the size of the group, they should be kept apart from other groups where possible and older children should be encouraged to keep their distance within groups. Schools with the capability to do it should take steps to limit interaction, sharing of rooms and social spaces between groups as much as possible. When using larger groups the other measures from the system of controls become even more important, to minimise transmission risks and to minimise the numbers of pupils and staff who may need to self-isolate. We recognise that younger children will not be able to maintain social distancing, and it is acceptable for them not to distance within their group. Both the approaches of separating groups and maintaining distance are not ‘all-or-nothing’ options, and will still bring benefits even if implemented partially. Some schools may keep children in their class groups for the majority of the classroom time, but also allow mixing into wider groups for specialist teaching, wraparound care and transport. Siblings may also be in different groups. Endeavouring to keep these groups at least partially separate and minimising contacts between children will still offer public health benefits as it reduces the network of possible direct transmission.- This may be the case with schools that want to offer Bee Active extra curricular care. The mixing of class bubbles will be at the discression of the school and Bee Active staff will make every possible effort to maintain social distanciong strictly within these groups. All teachers and other staff can operate across different classes and year groups in order to facilitate the delivery of the school timetable. This will be particularly important for secondary schools. Where staff need to move between classes and year groups, they should try and keep their distance from pupils and other staff as much as they can, ideally 2 metres from other adults. Again, we recognise this is not likely to be possible with younger children and teachers in primary schools can still work across groups if that is needed to enable a full educational offer.- This will apply to Bee Active Coaches who offer a specialism in PE. Coaches should adhere to social distancing and should aim for 2m spacing where possible. This may mean that new spaces are used, and one way systems will need to be adhered to where necessary. As above we advise that coaches get in touch with their setting ahead of time to familiarise themselves with the layout of their setting and to discuss Safe entry and exit. Ideally lessons should take place outdoors where possible and classes should be brought outside by the teacher to prevent unnecessary inside traffic.

Spreading Covid19 via personal contact.Spreading COVID19 via person to person contact that may be required in order to administer first aid.Staff, Children and the Wider community. As satelite teachers that may see several social bubbles of children within the week it is advised that first aid is administered wherever possible by the teacher or teaching assistant that regularly cares for the children within the given social bubble. Where the regular teacher or TA is not available the health of the child will take priority and coaches will administer first aid in the usual way by breaking the social distancing 2m rule. As always with first aid, coaches will be considerate of infection control.All Bee Active Staff.Discussed with the setting prior to arrival and ongoing.
Spreading Covid19 via personal contact.Spreading Covid19 via person to person contact usually required for the safe teaching of PE.Staff, Children and the Wider community. Lessons should adhere to social distancing and children and coaches should remain 2m apart. This may mean that a new space and smaller classes will need to be arranged. To encourage social distancing with younger children (KS1) Individual equipment such as spots or hoops may be useful (note that these will adhere to the personal equipment rule above and will be sterilised before and after each lesson and will not be shared during use.) There should be no organised contact activities, including team practices or training. High risk activities where a coach would be required to support the body of a pupil (such as the safe teaching of a hand stand or forward roll in gymnastics should be avoided). Individual activities and sports are reccomended, where pupils are working in isolation. Safety is paramount- if a child can do a skill safely and it is well within their ability, then allow it. Discourage activities that are physically challenging, which might require adult intervention or physical support, or could result in injury. There should be no sports or games where children or coaches are close (within 2m of each other). This can be replaced this with personal challenges(speed, flexibility, strength based), running, jogging, free skipping (without ropes), Dance, Yoga, Aerobics.

Spreading Covid19 via personal contact.Spreading of Covid19 within the PE lesson. Staff, Children and the Wider community. Government guidence on group sizes states: Schools should assess their circumstances and if class-sized groups are not compatible with offering a full range of subjects or managing the practical logistics within and around school, they can look to implement year group sized ‘bubbles’. Whatever the size of the group, they should be kept apart from other groups where possible and older children should be encouraged to keep their distance within groups. Sports coaches will work to protect the integrity of the bubbles and will lead their group by providing exercises and activities that can be done whilst adhering to social distancing. After school and extra curricular clubs can include children from mixed bubbles at the discressionm of the school setting. Every effort should be made by the Bee Active coach to ensure that distancing is maintained between children especially where bubbles are mixed in extra curricular care. Sports Coaches and ManagementDiscussed with the setting prior to arrival and ongoing.
Spreading Covid19 via personal contact.Spreading Covid 19 during the changing of clothes and shoes for PEStaff, Children and the Wider community. Social distancing must be adhered to whilst changing for PE. Most schools have put into place their own rules around changing for PE. There seems to be a tred for children arriving to school already dressed for PE. Coaches should only allow children to participate in a PE lesson where their clothing is suitable and safe to exercise in. This could realistically mean that only a change of shoes is required. this will mean considerable less risk by not changing fully for PE. Young children who are not capable of changing independently will be encouraged to take part in PE by removing jumpers, ties and changing footwear only. The activities planned will take into account the risk of the participants not wearing the correct PE kit. If possible, we recommend that children wear their PE kit all day and arriving at school in kit on days when PE is scheduled. This consideration may already be addressed in your settings site specific risk assessment and may differ setting to setting. It is the responsibility of coaches to suggest this to their setting in their pre visit conversations. Where this is not possible consider the use of large hoops for changing inside, or the 'dressing the chair' method to prevent cross contamination between clothes. Lost clothes and shoes that have been worn by another child in error should be bagged up and returned home to parents with a message, where possible. If this occurs we recommend that the coach brings it to the attention of the class teacher for consideration. It may be that the setting can offer a clean alternative or clean change of clothes.Sports CoachesDiscussed with the setting prior to arrival and ongoing.
Spreading of COVID19 across multiple settingsSpreading Covid 19 across multiple settings via the coach.Staff, Children and the Wider community. The movement of coaches between schools on the same day should be avoided. Bee Active management acknowledge the need for coach continuity within school and community settings where possible. This means that the same coach attends the same schools, week in week out. To achieve this sessions should be 'clumped' together over one day rather than smaller sessions spread out throughout the week. This ensures that a coach can be wearing one set of uniform in one school, for one day, before a fresh change for the next days work. Our uniform is our first level of PPE. Bee Active staff will not use the staff rooms at their settings to prepare food and drinks and take their breaks. Alternatively we recommend that staff bring their food already prepared to work and eat it in an outside space or in their own vehicle. Coaches and Management.Ongoing.
Spreading of COVID19 across multiple settingsSpreading COVID 19 across multiple settings via clothing.Staff, Children and the Wider community. Coaches have been provided with a full set of clean uniform by Bee Active, including multiple pairs of trousers, shorts and t shirts. Coaches must wear a completely clean set of uniform each day to work. Coaches are only provided with one winter coat and one Zipped jacket. If worn these items must be washed before the next use. The Bee Active uniform is a form of PPE and should only be worn in the work setting. Coaches should change before making other essential trips, such as food shopping for example. All staff should ensure that the uniform is not worn into and around the home. It is advised that clothing is washed immediately at the end of each working day. All Bee Active Staff.Ongoing
Handling a suspected case of COVID19Persons developing symptoms during a session or club.Staff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.If a child becomes unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature you should inform the supervising teacher immediately and the pupil should be sent home. From this point Bee Active staff should take advice from the setting Risk Assessment as all venues will be laid out differently. Government advice recommends: Children under 18 should be supervised by one adult, if safe and appropriate, in an open air space away from equipment, minimising the risk of transfer to the accompanying staff member. If a child is awaiting collection, and it is not safe or appropriate for them to be in an open air space, they should be moved, if possible and if appropriate, to a room where they can be isolated behind a closed door. Settings should be mindful of individual children’s needs – for example it would not be appropriate for younger children to be alone without adult supervision. Ideally, a window should be opened for ventilation. If it is not possible to isolate them, move them to an area which is at least 2 metres away from other people. Each setting will have a designated room or space for this isolation to take place. Coaches should familiarise themselves with the location of the space at the setting prior to teaching. If they need to go to the bathroom while waiting to be collected, they should use a separate bathroom if possible. The bathroom should be cleaned and disinfected using standard cleaning products before being used by anyone else. If they need clinical advice, they (or their teacher, parent or guardian) should go online to NHS 111 (or call 111 if they don't have internet access). In an emergency, call 999 if they are seriously ill or injured or their life is at risk. Do not visit the GP, pharmacy, urgent care centre or a hospital. All household members of the unwell person must leave together, this includes siblings and parents that may also be on site as staff or volunteers. If a member of staff has helped someone who was taken unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature, they do not need to go home unless they develop symptoms themselves. They should wash their hands thoroughly for 20 seconds after any contact with someone who is unwell. If a Bee Active staff member has come into contact with someone that has been sent home with suspected COVID19 they must inform the Bee Active management team so that a RA can be undertaken based on the individual circumstances. Once an unwell person has been identified care should be taken to thoroughly clean down all surfaces and equipment that they have been in contact with. If a Bee Active coach becomes unwell with continuous cough or a high temperature at a setting, they should inform the setting staff and leave site immediately. Without touching anything further where possible. If appropriately well to do so, the bee active staff member must inform the Bee Active management team as soon as it possible. This staff member will be asked to remain at home in isolation as per the government recommendation. An individual RA will be undertaken before this person can return to work. Schools and settings are duty bound to inform Bee Active asap if an outbreak of COVID19 occurs in their school. Bee Active and Setting StaffOngoing observation.
Cleaning of contaminated areas.Staff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.Where possible, cleaning of a contaminated areas should be undertaken by setting staff. If a Bee Active Coach is required to clean a contaminated area they should: Clean an area with normal household disinfectant after someone with suspected coronavirus (COVID-19) has left will reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people. Note that if an area can be kept closed and secure for 72 hours, wait until this time has passed for cleaning as the amount of virus living on surfaces will have reduced significantly by 72 hours. Wherever possible, wear disposable or washing-up gloves and aprons for cleaning. These should be double-bagged, then stored securely for 72 hours then thrown away in the regular rubbish after cleaning is finished. Using a disposable cloth, first clean hard surfaces with warm soapy water. Then disinfect these surfaces with the cleaning products you normally use. Pay particular attention to frequently touched areas and surfaces, such as bathrooms, grab-rails in corridors and stairwells and door handles. If an area has been heavily contaminated, such as with visible bodily fluids, from a person with coronavirus (COVID-19), consider using protection for the eyes, mouth and nose, as well as wearing gloves and an apron. Wash hands regularly with soap and water for 20 seconds, and after removing gloves, aprons and other protection used while cleaning.

Safe issue and handling of cleaning products.Waste Disposal following contaminated area cleaning.Staff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.Waste from possible cases and cleaning of areas where possible cases have been (including disposable cloths and tissues): Should be put in a plastic rubbish bag and tied when full. The plastic bag should then be placed in a second bin bag and tied. It should be put in a suitable and secure place and marked for storage until the individual’s test results are known. Waste should be stored safely and kept away from children. You should not put your waste in communal waste areas until negative test results are known or the waste has been stored for at least 72 hours.If the individual tests negative, this can be put in with the normal waste if the individual tests positive, then store it for at least 72 hours and put in with the normal waste storage for at least 72 hours is not appropriate, arrange for collection as a Category B infectious waste either by your local waste collection authority if they currently collect your waste or otherwise by a specialist clinical waste contractor. They will supply you with orange clinical waste bags for you to place your bags into so the waste can be sent for appropriate treatment. BA staff should contact a member of the BA management team who will assist with this process.

Safe issue and handling of cleaning products.Safe handling of cleaning products, soaps and sanitizers.Staff, Children, and Volunteers.Bee Active staff will be provided with their own cleaning kit for the purpose of sanitizing equipment. The kit will include, multi purpose cleaner, sanitizing wipes and hand gel. Along with disposable cloths, gloves, aprons and bin bags. Staff will be advised on the safe use and storage of the kit at the point of issuing. The kit and its contents will be kept with the coach at all times and kept out of reach of children. Where this is not possible Coaches are encouraged to return it to their vehicle in between use. Bee Active staff should be undertaking enhanced cleaning of kit, including cleaning frequently touched surfaces often using standard products, such as detergents and bleach Cleaning time should be built into the schedule in between each session to ensure that adequate time is allowed for a good clean. More frequent cleaning of rooms and shared areas that are used by different groups should be undertaken, including the cleaning of frequently touched surfaces such as door handles, aperatus, and mats. The cleaning of toilets should be regular and will be overseen by the setting. It is jointly our responsibility to ensure that toilets are clean for pupils. if you notice that this is not happening, please speak to a member of the Bee Active management team. Toilets will need to be cleaned regularly and pupils must be encouraged to clean their hands thoroughly after using the toilet - different groups being allocated their own toilet blocks could be considered but is not a requirement if the site does not allow for it Public Health England has published revised guidance for cleaning non-healthcare settings to advise on general cleaning required in addition to the existing advice on cleaning those settings when there is a suspected case. It is the responsibility of the coach to replenish their kit from the provisions at the Bee Active office. If a coaches individual RA states that they are not to attend the office, then they should inform a member of the management team when kit supplies are running low. All Bee Active staff.Ongoing.
Local OutbreakLocal LockdownStaff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.In the event of a local outbreak the D of E will advise local authorities on what action to take. Bee Active will follow this advice.
Individual school outbreakIn the event of a local outbreak, the PHE health protection team or local authority may advise a school or number of schools to close temporarily to help control transmission. Schools will also need a contingency plan for this eventuality. This may involve a return to remaining open only for vulnerable children and the children of critical workers, and providing remote education for all other pupils. If there is a localised outbreak in a school that has accomodated a Bee Active coach, that coach will follow the advice of the NHS Test and trace service and may be asked to isolate.

This should take place more often than usual using standard cleaning products. High frequency contact points should be cleaned as required throughout the day, this includes (but is not limited to) all door handles, hand washing taps, toilet/bathroom door handles, keyboards and screens, buttons on door bells, printers, and computers. Some staff members have their own desks and computers at the Bee Active office. These staff members should continue to use the same computers, desks and office spaces ever time they visit the office. These should not be shared. Staff members that usually use the communal space to 'Hot desk' are discouraged from doing so. In the event that a staff member needs to use a shared computer in the communal area they must ensure that they clean the key board, mouse and screen throughly before and after use. Its is also compulsary that they sit at least 2m apart and further than that if the space allows.

Bee Active and Setting StaffPrior to beginning the session, ongoing throughout the day and at the end of all sessions.
Preventing the Spread of COVID19Person to person contaminationStaff, Children, Volunteers, and the wider community.Discuss with young children daily the importance of good hand hygiene. Supervise young children to ensure they wash their hands for 20 seconds more often than usual with soap and water or hand sanitiser and catch coughs and sneezes in tissues. Everyone should hand wash on entry, before eating food and prior to going home. Additional hand washing opportunities should be highlighted by the BA coach or setting staff where he/she feels it is appropriate. Where possible water and drinks should not be refillable at communal water fountains. Encourage children to bring enough to drink from home. If water bottles must be refilled this should be supervised by an adult to ensure that the bottle does not touch the tap. Hand shaking and hand to hand contact games (such as circle games like 'The farmers in his den') should be removed from the programme of activities. Activities that require minimal hand contact are preferable. For example: football. Bee Active and Setting StaffOngoing throughout the day.
