Covid-19 Risk Assessment
Thursday, August 20, 2020 | Covid-19
During the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have put the following measures in place to ensure our students and their families are as safe as possible on our return to face to face lessons. Please could you take the time to read the information below as there are several big changes:
UPDATED NOVEMBER 2021
♩ Both our venues now have keyboards around the edge of the room, facing the walls instead of each other.
♩ This has created a large space in the centre of each room, allowing students to sit/stand more socially distanced for any group discussion or activity.
♩ There will be compulsory hand sanitising on entry and exit for all students.
♩ Students' temperature will be checked on arrival using a no-touch infrared thermometer.
♩ We will not be asking our students to wear masks, however please feel free to send your child in one if you wish.
♩ All keyboards, headphones, stools, door handles etc. will be sterilised between lessons.
♩ Students must bring their current music book, a pencil and an eraser to each lesson in a bag. Special PJC equipment has been provided for our students and charged to parent's accounts to cover the cost of these.
♩ In order to enable social distancing and allow time for cleaning between lessons, our Young Beginners Lessons will reduce from 55 minutes to 50 minutes.
♩ Parents are asked NOT to bring their children to lesson if they display any of the symptoms associated with Covid-19. Any student who shows signs will be sent home immediately and asked to get a test ASAP.
♩ During this pandemic, we are waiving our 24 notice requirement for receiving make-up credits for anyone who cancels because of Covid-19 Symptoms. Please just cancel as normal on the system and send me a text or email to explain why and I will add the make up credit back to your account. Please note, your child will need a negative test result if they wish to return before the 14 days isolation period.
♩ Although no one under the age of 18 is now required to self isolated if they are contacted as a close contact with someone who has contracted Covid-19, we ask parents to please ensure the student takes a lateral flow test on the morning of their lesson should this be the case.
