Having worked with over 2 million children throughout our 30-year history, we understand how to create safe environments where children can be active, have fun and learn with others.
In response to the unique challenge of COVID-19, we have developed and tested COVID-specific operating procedures, and these will be integrated into our standard operating procedures.
Our guiding principle for all policies and procedures is that we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Safer recruitment is central to the way we work and all staff and volunteers are expected to share our commitment to safeguarding, always creating an environment where young people feel safe and can thrive
COVID-specific procedures will be integrated into staff training, and our audit process to ensure they are adhered to.
Our procedures are available to all Kings Camps stakeholders including parents, programme personnel and venue personnel.
We all have a personal responsibility with Covid-19, it’s therefore important that you do not attend camp (or Induction day) if you or anyone in your household have:
- Been displaying signs of Coronavirus (check these here)
- Received a positive PCR or lateral flow test result
- Been told to self-isolate via the NHS Track and Trace system
- Recently travelled from abroad and need to isolate on your return to the UK
If you have any of the above, you may be putting others at risk and you must contact us (0114 263 2155/ email@example.com) as a priority.
Twice-weekly lateral flow testing is encouraged for all staff working in a school or childcare setting. If you are a teacher or student already under a testing routine, you should continue with your regular testing procedures at home every 3-4 days (twice a week)
If you have not previously had a test, you can get tested in one of the following ways:
- Get tested at a local authority testing site – find a site near you
- Collect a test at a local testing site – find a site near you
- Order a test to your home (tests should arrive within 2 days) – click here to get started
Lateral flow tests aim to give a result within 30 minutes, therefore we recommend that these are administered the evening before the first day on site, and mid week thereafter.
If you have received a positive testing result for Covid-19, you must not attend camp or induction day and you must inform us (0114 263 2155/ firstname.lastname@example.org) as a priority.
