Parental Guidance

We've collected together some useful information for parents and guardians of members of Cringleford Scout Group. If there's something you're not sure about, hopefully you'll find the answer here.

Returning to Face-to-Face Scouting

As some of the government restrictions around the COVID-19 pandemic have been relaxed, we’re beginning to return to face-to-face activities. Our restarting plans will follow all government rules and guidance from Scouts’ UKHQ. Our priority is to keep young people and adults safe.

An outline of how we will operate, following Scouts’ ‘COVID Code’:

  • New control measures will be in place for all activities
  • Additional hygiene measures will be put in place
  • Social distancing will be observed
  • Group sizes will be limited
  • Adjustments will be made for young people and volunteers vulnerable or affected by COVID

Returning to Scouts will happen in phases, the first of which will let us resume outdoor activities in small groups. Returning to face-to-face Scouts is voluntary for all young people, parents/carers and volunteers. We encourage all parents and carers, young people and volunteers to raise concerns, ask questions and provide feedback.
