August/September Update

I hope you have all had a good Summer with a chance for some rest and relaxation. 
Thank you to all of you who supported our Summer Holiday Club and thank you to those who have chosen TASC as your out of school childcare provider for the next school year. Welcome to our new starters and welcome back to all those who are continuing with us.


Continuing Pandemic Response Measures

Please see our updated Covid-19 Risk Assessment on our Downloads page. You may notice that there are very few changes since the end of last term. The Board, the staff and myself are in agreement that this is still a precarious and risky time in the pandemic recovery and that we should continue to take a cautious approach to protect the children, staff and by extension yourselves. We are also following the school’s policy of continuing with Covid restrictions in place for the first 6 weeks of term at least. We will then review the situation and will keep you informed of any changes.
So, we would ask you to continue to drop off/pick up children outside and wear a mask if you are in conversation with staff or in close proximity to another adult, even if outdoors. You will see staff also wearing masks when close to other adults, or when moving around in school but as advised by the Care Inspectorate they can choose not to wear masks if they are static or seated within their “bubble” group or outdoors with children (this is actively encouraged so that children can see faces for improved communication).  
If you would like clarification or have any questions about the restrictions/procedures please ask.

Clubs/Children leaving independently

Other activities and clubs may be starting up again soon or you may be wanting to give older children the responsibility to walk home alone. Please talk to us about either of these so that we can gain your written permission and instructions to ensure we keep children safe.

Absences

Please could you let us know before a session begins if your child will not be attending by texting 07796 597976 or emailing tasc49@gmail.com Don’t forget that the school will not necessarily pass on information about absences to us. Thank you – it makes a huge difference to the beginning of each session!


I will be in touch regularly with updates, reminders and other information but as always, if you have any issues or would like a chat, catch me at After School club or email me on becky.tas@gmail.com
Looking forward to a fun term ahead, 

Becky
