Mad Hatters - Before and After-School Provision

We are delighted to be opening a new Mad Hatters before and after-school provision, under new COVID specific alterations, to support working families who are struggling with child-care arrangements.

This is a limited provision, and will we will review as restrictions alter for COVID. It is in line with our school Risk Assessment, and maintains the integrity of school bubbles. We have decided, to set up a class bubble mat at the beginning and end of the school day as a first working attempt to support our families with before and after-school child-care. We also have to maintain strict cleaning routines, which means provision must be shorter to allow for cleaning and fogging of the room.

The school hall will be set out with up to 12 mats at KG.

Families can purchase a place for their child, and the mat will be sanitised before and after use.

Children will be required to stay on their mat with their class bubble for the Mad Hatters’ session, and they can bring a snack with them – no refreshments will be provided by the school at this time. We ask you to make sure that your child has gone to the toilet before school, and we will ask them to go before the end of the school day.

Children can complete home learning, read or watch a film which will be played on the hall screen.

They will be expected to stay on their mat for the session.

Staff will remain with face coverings at a 2m distance from the children.

All children must be signed in at Mad Hatters Breakfast Club by an adult.

All children must be collected from Mad Hatters After School Club by an adult.
