As of 4 July, those offering out-of-school activities to children, including those not based on school premises, have been able to open for both indoor and outdoor provision with safety measures in place. The Department has published guidance for providers of these activities on the measures they should put in place to ensure they are operating as safely as possible, which can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-implementing-protective-measures-in-education-and-childcare-settings/coronavirus-covid-19-implementing-protective-measures-in-education-and-childcare-settings.

Out-of-school provision will continue to be permitted to operate during the autumn, and we will provide further guidance on the protective measures they should put in place in the autumn as soon as possible.
