COVID Health Management Policy

COVID-19 Guideline for Parents and Carers



  • Please do not attend class if you have COVID-19 symptoms, or you have someone in your household who has symptoms or have been advised by NHS Test and Trace to self-isolate.

  • Please allow your temperature to be taken upon arrival to class (carer and child).

  • Please clean your hands and your little one’s hands by using the alcohol hand gel supplied (or you can use your own) and making sure that all parts of the hands have been covered.

  • Please ensure good respiratory hygiene by using the ‘Catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach.

  • After going to the restrooms, please wash hands thoroughly for 20 seconds with running water and soap and dry them thoroughly.

  • Classes will be arranged slightly differently to maintain social distancing, so please be respectful and do not move any of the circles. Please follow instructions about social distancing during the class time.

  • For now, please can carers wear a face covering during the class (this will be reviewed).


Response to any infection

  • I will be following government guidelines for the NHS Test and Trace process.



  • In line with recent government guidelines and current research, it is ok (and beneficial!) to sing in class. As adults will be using face-coverings, this will mitigate any spread of infection through singing.


Use of shared resources

  • I have changed some of the ways in which the class has been run in the past. Now each carer will be given a music bag each week with the items that we will be using during the class. I will be cleaning these before and after each class.

  • During the class, please keep all the items in your assigned music bag until it is time for each of them to be taken out. Please do not share these items with other members of the class.


Face Coverings

  • Would adults please use a face covering during class as this will mitigate transmission. Face covering policy for classes will continually be reviewed to ensure that there is still good communication between carers, teacher and children as well as keeping transmission risk low.

Risk Assessment

My utmost concern is for the safety and well-being of the children and carers that are coming to my classes, and I will do everything possible to make the environment as safe as I can.

  • I will wash my hands when I arrive in the building and wash hands/use hand sanitiser before the class begins and during class if necessary.

  • Children and their carers will be asked to use hand sanitiser as they enter the building.

  • I will open doors, move items in the room etc to minimise others touching surfaces.

  • Before class we will use hand sanitiser.

  • Carers will be handed a bag with the day’s props which will be cleaned and sanitised before each class.

  • No items will be shared during the class.

  • The room will be ventilated with an open window and/or door.

  • I will use a mask (or a visor depending on how comfortable the children will feel) for the class.

  • I will observe social distancing during class.

  • As an added safety precaution, and for everyone’s peace of mind, I will check my temperature before the class and of the children and carers when they arrive.
