Update to Covid-19 guidance for holiday clubs.
Since the wider government announcement on Covid-19 measures on 8 December, the department has published updated guidance: Covid-19 protective measures for holiday or after-school clubs and other out-of-school settings (gov.uk)
Changes to the guidance since the previous update on 2 December 2021 include:
- updated asymptomatic testing section reflecting that you should encourage visitors to test before coming to your setting
- updated advice on Tracing close contacts and isolation to reflect the forthcoming change to isolation rules
- updated advice on face coverings
- updated sections on children and adults who were previously considered to be clinically extremely vulnerable
The government has made it a national priority that education and childcare settings should continue to operate as normally as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is important that HAF provision takes place on a face-to-face basis during the Christmas holidays.
The programme offers a wide range of support for families and goes well beyond the delivery of food: it provides enriching activities and is an opportunity to learn and socialise, an important source of childcare, and a point of contact for children and families during holiday periods that can be vital for them in accessing support and services.
The Government has published a contingency framework to guide decision makers in managing local outbreaks of coronavirus. This covers the decision-making process when considering any local measures that affect holiday clubs, childcare and out-of-school settings, including the HAF programme.
