COVID Health Management Policy

COVID-19 Guideline for Parents and Carers

 

Prevention

  • 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.

 

Response to any infection

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

 

Singing

  • In line with recent government guidelines and current research, it is ok (and beneficial!) to sing in class.

 

Use of shared resources

  • I have changed some of the ways in which the class has been run in the past. For instrument time at the end of the class, each child will be given a music bag with his/her name on it  - this will be for their use for the rest of the term. Any other items used in the class (like scarves and claves etc) will be cleaned after each use. 

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.

  • The room will be well ventilated by keeping the windows open. Having outdoor air circulating has been shown to have the best results in keeping transmission low.

  • I will be testing regularly with lateral flow tests.

  • I will 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..

  • Each child will have his/her own named bag with instruments to use during class. All other props will be cleaned after class. 

  • I will observe social distancing as much as possible 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.
