Will my child be in a group/bubble when attending breakfast club and after school club?

Yes, all children attending will be divided into a minimum of two groups which will remain consistent throughout their period of attendance. Each group will have their own dedicated space within the setting. Groups will always be required to maintain physical distancing of 2 metres from other groups.
