Collecting Children from The Afty
At present, parents and not allowed into the club hall or school building except in emergency situations.
Please wait on the bridge when you arrive outside the club hall and a member of our staff team will come out to greet you; they may ask your name, who you are collecting and their security pin(s).
Our staff will be equipped with walkie talkies, so they will locate the children, help them get ready to leave, and bring them out to you as quickly as possible. If you are in a rush, feel free to call/text us in advance and we will help get them ready for your arrival.
The head teacher has advised that, at present, no parents should enter the school, even the entrance area to the club hall, so if it is raining heavily, we are sorry to have to ask that you wait under the bridge if you need shelter. Again, if you call or text us in advance, we will aim to have your child ready for your arrival so you do not have to wait long.
Staff will also be happy to assist with things you would normally have been able to do yourself, such as going into the school to locate a missing item or helping your child get changed and ready for an evening club (eg. football or Brownies). Again, contact us in advance if you need help with anything.
To help us with infection prevention and control, when you are on the bridge, please observe physical distancing and personal hygiene measures by staying two metres (roughly three steps) away from other adults and covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve if you need to cough or sneeze.
You are not required or expected to wear a mask or a face covering, but you can if you wish.
