Health Measures

As we take the safety of our students and staff very seriously, our plan is driven by the reassurance that we can provide a safe and enjoyable experience in each school. The safety measures include:

  • Covid-19 risk assessments
  • Limitation of class sizes to 8-10 to comply with social distancing regulations
  • We encourage good hygiene by:
    • Displaying notices reminding everyone to wash hands regularly
    • Provide hand sanitiser
    • Provide face masks for students in the school
    • Frequently cleaning touch surfaces
    • Providing hand-drying facilities
    • Providing clear guidelines for use of toilet facilities (ie. number of people who can use them at once)
  • Non-essential staff are being asked to work from home, and visitors will be kept to a minimum (appointment-only)
  • We are encouraging everyone to keep 2m apart when possible by:
    • Displaying notices reminding people to keep 2m apart
    • Using floor tape to mark 2m gaps where appropriate
    • Arranging one-way traffic through the school where possible
  • Where we cannot keep 2m apart, we are managing the contamination risk by:
    • Considering whether an activity needs to continue for the business to operate
    • Keeping the activity time involved as short as possible
    • Using screens or barriers to separate people from each other where possible
    • Using back-to-back or side-to-side working whenever possible
