Getting everyone back together safely

To keep everyone safe we need members and their parents to:

  • Sign-up to the ‘event’ invitation sent to the email address registered as contact in OSM
  • Check the Getting everyone back together safely web page
  • Check the details in the ‘event’ email for arrival and departure information and any other relevant information or messages from the leaders
  • Ensure my child goes to the toilet before traveling to the venue
  • Ensure my child washes their hands thoroughly before travelling to the venue
  • Follow the arrival and departure instructions fully and maintain social distancing measures

If you need to speak to a leader, please use the Contact Us details or email in the first instance.

Finally, we’re required to keep a detailed register of those attending each activity to help with the track and trace process. This will be kept and readily available for at least 6 weeks to facilitate contact tracing.

Our Keeping Safe Code

Keeping to the control measures we have put in place for everyone’s safety is extremely important.

All members will need to follow:

If these rules are not adhered to, a young person will:

  • be reminded of the rules
  • reminded a final time
  • parents will be contacted and the young person will be collected immediately

This is for the safety of everyone. If this happens, the Group Scout Leader will contact the parents before a return is possible and parents, young person, leader and Group Scout Leader will agree a personalised risk assessment and plan to make a return safe for everyone. The Group Scout Leader, in consultation with the District Commissioner reserve the right to stop further meetings until suitable control measures can be put in place the safety of everyone.
