* Please note there is a full day option for all children, AND a creative writing session just for CM students in the mornings, should a CM parent want to sign up just for mornings.
Our COVID policy, based on current government guidelines:
Thank you for your confidence in Roaming Schoolhouse. Please find below our guidelines for camp. This will be a lengthy document, but we need to be as clear and precise as possible.
The team will continue to monitor the situation and discuss any easing of our guidelines that we feel appropriate. If we decide to make any changes, you will be informed right away.
Prior to arrival:
Please check your child’s temperature before leaving for camp and check for any symptoms (persistent cough or temperature of 37.8°C or higher). In this case, please keep your child at home and inform us immediately. If you have any doubt about their health, please keep them at home. If a child develops a cough or a temperature during the day, we will isolate them and ask that they are picked up immediately. Please make sure that your contact details are up to date on the website, in case we need to reach you.
All staff will be wearing masks.
All children over the age of 6 must wear a mask while indoors and in the playground, following the most recent government announcements.

Check-in (8:30-10 am):
This will take place in the main hall (préau) at the far right of the playground. Parents will not be permitted to enter further into the school building. Once check-in is complete, parents leave, and the child will wash or gel their hands.
17:30-18:00 Free time
All children must bring their own pencil case including pencils, pens, colours, a glue stick, scissors, disposable paper tissues and a ruler. Everyone must bring their own notebook (of any type) as well. A book to read is also a great idea.
Children cannot share their material.
Along with snacks and lunch for the day, this is all the children are allowed to bring with them for the day, unless we specifically ask for something else. Individual games may also be brought.
General Health and Safety:
Each class will maintain a self-contained bubble of no more than 15 students in a class.
There will be a minimum of two (sometimes three) additional adults on site during the day.
Cleaning and disinfecting will be carried out twice a day by the company that the school subcontracts cleaning to.
Children will wash their hands on arrival, as well as before and after each break and lunchtime. This is a minimum. Each classroom will be equipped with hand gel.
Children will be able to eat snacks at this time in the playground – please make sure that any snacks are in easy to open containers. Younger children often cannot open crisp packets themselves, for example.
In total, children will have 90 minutes of break time in the playground during the day.
Children will be supervised eating their lunch. Please make sure that lunch is in easy to open containers. Food cannot be heated, so please provide sandwiches, salads etc. For the younger children, please make sure that the food is easy to eat – preferably without cutlery. Please also make sure your child brings a bottle of water.
After 30 minutes of lunchtim, the children will have 30 minutes in the playground.
There will be at least one session of sports per day for each class. This will make sure that along with the 90 minutes of break, the children spend a reasonable amount of time outside.
This will either happen in the main hall or the playground between 4:30 and 6pm.The children will have returned to their classrooms between 4:30 and 5:30pm. Please maintain distance in the playground and advise us of an approximate time for pick up each morning.
Thank you for your help in following these guidelines that will allow us to have the best possible camp, given the health situation. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
We are looking forward to seeing your children at camp!
