FACEMASKS AND COVERINGS

POSITIVE COVID-19 AND TRACK AND TRACE

Any member/teacher or family member who is tested positive for COVID-19 up to two weeks post event dates must immediately inform AMC School of Dance management. The class that is affected will immediately be notified including students/parents/teachers. Should this occur while classes are running, the class affected will be shut down, and spaces deep cleaned immediately follow government guidance “COVID-19: cleaning in non-healthcare settings”.

FACEMASKS AND COVERINGS

SITE MANAGEMENT:

  • At least 2metres squared space per dance has been allocated.

  • For younger members this will be outlined as a box.

  • For older Juniors and Intermediates this may be outlined as a box or as a centre marker.

  • For PreSeniors and Adults, there may be no markers.  AMC staff will advise of spacing, but members can use their common sense to distance.

  • As it stands, the capacities of our School of Dance classes will decrease to a maximum of 12 participants and between 6 and 10 for Tots  

  • There will be a 10-15minute gap between classes for these changeovers to take place.

  • All door handles, barres and other surfaces touched by dancers and staff will be cleaned down before, in-between and after classes.

  • For Tots, each dancer will get a props bag to use in class - contents sanitised between uses.

  • Props used by Miss Adele will be sanitised between classes.

  • Any child with a fever must be immediately isolated and collected by their parents.

  • Dancers are to minimise the belongings they bring to class, there will be a specified space to place them during class.

  • For dancers doing multiple classes, they are welcome to bring food and eat in the specified eating area (committee room).  Water breaks will continue as normal.

  • For the time being, all our School of Dance and Tots classes will be 30-35minutes long - with a 10-15minute gap in between allowing for class changeovers and wipedowns.

  • There will be a specific teaching area for instructors and other staff.

  • Windows will be open where possible for additional ventilation.

FIRST AID AND CHILD SAFETY:

  • AMC first aiders will still administer first aid if necessary, gloves and a visor will be worn where social distancing is not possible.

  • If your child becomes upset and needs comfort and the parent is not present, the AMC Dance Instructor may apply a visor and gloves and break social distancing to comfort your child (subject to change dependant on the government guidelines) - unless you inform us you do not want this to happen.

  • All members of staff will have completed Covid-19 prevention qualifications and a Covid-19 risk assessment will be in place.

 

This policy is under continual review and may be altered at any time in-line with Government guidelines.  Any changes will be circulated to all members.
