We sincerely hope you and yours are all well, happy and healthy.
We have already resumed private lessons and plan to restart group lessons on 17th August. In order to maintain social distancing, when we reopen, we will offer a combination online and face-to-face timetable.
Meanwhile, we are doing everything we possibly can to prepare the school not only to be safe, but also comfortable.
Social distancing measures we will put in place when we reopen the school:
- We are going to limit the number of students per class
- A one-way system will be in operation around the school
- Desks will be placed 2 metres apart
- Hand sanitising stations will be available at the school entrances
- We will ask everyone to pay by card or contactless
- Appropriate PPE will be provided for team members
- Team members will receive training and regular briefings on how to keep themselves and students safe
- We will follow rigorous daily hygiene routines throughout the school
We will do all that we can to ensure that your learning is not disrupted too much. Communication is key in all of this, so please do keep in touch with us.
Any questions, just send us a WhatsApp message – 07581880037.
The symptoms of coronavirus are:
- a cough
- a high temperature
- shortness of breath
But these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness.
- wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
- always wash your hands when you get home or into work
- use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
- cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
- put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards
- try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell
- do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
If you think you might have coronavirus or you’ve been in close contact with someone who has it:
- stay at home and avoid close contact with other people
- do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
- use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do next
