Will breakfast clubs and after school provision continue?
Schools are being encouraged to resume breakfast and after-school provision, where possible, for the autumn term.
Schools may need to respond flexibly and build this up over time because it will be logistically challenging for schools, particularly for clubs that would normally offer support across year groups, where parents are using multiple providers, or where childminders are picking up/dropping off pupils.
Schools will carefully consider how they can make such provision work alongside their wider protective measures, including keeping children within their year groups or bubbles where possible. If it is not possible to maintain bubbles being used during the school day then schools will look to use small, consistent groups.
Please check with your child’s school for details of the arrangements which have been put in place.
