Episode two of Summer of Sport Finals & return to buildings

So the teams, Bumble Bee,  X Factor, Team Rock or In it Together, had completed all the heats. They had a morning of hilarious welly wanging to finally decide the winning team. If you ever want to bond a team try welly wanging, but make sure you have a big open space. So who were the winners? Building the tension? Find out further in this episode!!!!

Then came the medal and certificate presentation, when every single participant received a medal and certificate. Those who were not here today received theirs at home.

The winners were:- In it Together.

So the Green Team leave the field and Social eyes will return to building based activities, the week commencing Monday 28th September 2020.  We have thoroughly enjoyed our time on the field; however, it is now time to move back indoors. 

We will be using a small number of buildings and our minibuses to provide a five-day service Monday to Friday.  Individual timetables will be issued, and we hope to try and resume some level of normality to our day service provision.

We are all fully aware of the risks of Covid and Social eyes have put a number of safety measures in place to make our working environments the safest they can be in these current times. 

Can we please make you aware of these safety measures & ask for your full support when we are implementing them?

SAFETY MEASURES

There will be a new one way system when entering & exiting buildings.

NO parents / carers will be allowed to enter the buildings.

Everyone, all service users, staff, professionals who enter the building will be required to have their temperature & oxygen levels tested.  Anyone with readings that state high temperature or low oxygen level will be requested to return home (unless an existing health condition is known).

Everyone entering the building must sanitize hands on arrival & at regular intervals.

Social distancing will be respected at all times, entry to the building will be structured to ensure safety at all times.  Transparent screens / visual signs and stickers are positioned to help enforce social distancing.

All service users will be allocated a seat on arrival, which will remain their seat for the duration of that day.

The use of toilets will be done on a 1:1 basis, which will be supervised and each toilet cleaned after each use.

All personal belongings will be put into large transparent bags and hung up safely by staff members (no coats or bags will be permitted into the work zones), can we please request only one bag to be brought onto site.

Staff will use all correct PPE & we will use a clean as we go policy.

All items used within activities will be non-communal, service users will be issued individual pens, pencils etc there will be no sharing permitted.

When leaving the building NO parents will the enter the building, staff will escort all service users to parents / carers / transport.

We all have a level of responsibility to keep each other safe, can we please request if your son / daughter / ward is feeling unwell or showing signs of illness you keep them at home.

Staff will sanitize and clean the buildings at the end of every day.  Industrial foggers will be used to deep clean & sanitize all buildings on a regular basis.

While the safest place is still deemed to be outdoors, can we please request appropriate outdoor clothing is worn so walks, gardening & outdoor activities can take place.

Any service user that is deemed non-compliant or whose actions put themselves & others at risk will have their place in service reviewed.

This list should not be considered as final. We will no doubt add to the list of safety measures during the upcoming months, but will keep you informed.

If you would like to make any recommendations / suggestions, we are always open to new ideas.  You can make such suggestions when you speak to your key worker buddy or you can ring Social eyes direct.

We are entering a new chapter at Social eyes & the health & safety of service users & staff members will always be paramount.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. 

The list of rules may be long, but The Green Team are passionate about making new memories and gaining a new normality; and we promise as a service & as a team we will strive to do what we do best,

‘SUPPORT TO ACHIEVE’.
