    Animals: Ingonyama enguin amabala x  12 (Quiet) (sung under Rafiki)
    From the day we arrive on the planet

    And blinking, step into the sun
    There's more to see than can ever be seen More to do than can ever be done
    There's far too much to take in here More to find than can ever be found But the sun rolling high
    In the sapphire sky
    Keeps great and small on the endless round

     

    It's the Circle of Life
    Animals: Ingonyama engine wemma x 14 (sung under the chorus)
    And it moves us all

    Through despair and hope
    Through faith and love
    Till we find our place On the path unwinding
    In the Circle
    The Circle of Life

     

    All: It's the Circle of Life
    And it moves us all

    Through despair and hope
    Through faith and love

    Till we find our place

    In the Circle

    Already learnt in class – Juniors sing highlighted yellow section from “everybody look left” to the end, remember not to sing simba’s line “everywhere you look I’m” and make sure you practice this one with the actions as it is a finished routine.

     

    Simba: I'm gonna be a mighty king So enemies beware!
    Zazu: Well, I've never seen a king of beasts with quite so little hair
    Simba: I'm gonna be the mane event Like no king was before I'm brushing up on looking down I'm working on my ROAR!!
    Zazu: Thus far, a rather uninspiring thing
    Simba: Oh, I just can't wait to be king!

     

    Simba and Zazu:
    No one saying do this | Now when I said that, I--
    No one saying be there | What I meant was...
    No one saying stop that | Look; what you don't realize...
    No one saying see here | Now see here!
    Free to run around all day | Well that's definitely out...
    Free to do it all my way!

     

    All: Everybody look left
    Everybody look right
    Simba: Everywhere you look I'm
    All: Standing in the spotlight
    Zazu:Not yet!
    All: Let every creature go for broke and sing
    Let's hear it in the herd and on the wing
    It's gonna be King Simba's finest fling
    Simba: Oh I just can't wait to be king!
    All: Oh he just can't wait to be king!
    Simba: Oh I just can't waaaaaait ...
    All: just can't waaaaaait ...

    *New Song* All juniors sing sections highlighted in yellow, some named hyenas have lines

     

    Scar: I know that your powers of retention
    Are as wet as a warthog's backside
    But thick as you are, pay attention
    My words are a matter of pride  
    It's clear from your vacant expressions (ooooooh ha ha ha)
    The lights are not all on upstairs (ooooooh ha ha ha)
    But we're talking kings and successions (ha ha ha)  (ha ha ha ha)
    Even you can't be caught unawares

     

    Lets prepare for the chance of a lifetime
    Be prepared for sensational news
    A shining new era
    Is tiptoeing nearer
    Edie: And where do we feature?
    Scar: Just listen to teacher (HA x 21)

    I know it sounds sordid
    But you'll be rewarded
    When at last I am given my dues!
    And injustice deliciously squared
    Be prepared!

    Banzai:  Yeah, be prepared. We'll be prepared, heh ... For what?
    Scar: For the death of the king.
    Effie: Why? Is he sick?
    Scar: No fool, we're going to kill him. And Simba too.
    Shenzi: Great idea! Who needs a king anyway?
    All Hyneas: No king! No king! la--la-la--la-laa-laa!
    Scar: IDIOTS! There will be a king!
    Banzai: Hey, but you said, uh...
    Scar: I WILL BE KING! Stick with me and you'll never go hungry again!
    Banzai, Shenzi, Eddie and Ed:  Yaay! All right! Long live the king!

     

    All:
    Long live the king! (spoken)

    So prepare for the coup of the century
    Be prepared for the murkiest scam (Oooh... Ha! Ha! Ha!)
    Meticulous planning (We'll have food!)
    Tenacity spanning (Lots of food)
    Decades of denial (We repeat)
    Is simply why I'll (Endless meeeeeeeeeeeat)
    Be king undisputed
    Respected, saluted
    And seen for the wonder I am (HA x 7)
    Yes, my teeth and ambitions are bared
    Be prepared!
    Yes, our teeth and ambitions are bared Be prepared!

    Already learnt in class – Juniors sing high backing section under Nala’s vocals. Please practice singing with your arm actions as this is a finished routine.

     

    Nala: Shadowland
    The leaves have fallen
    This shadowed land
    This was our home
    The river's dry
    The ground has broken
    So I must go
    Now I must go


    And where the journey may lead me
    Let your prayers be my guide
    I cannot stay here, my family
    But I'll remember my pride


    All: Pride Land
    My land
    Tear-stained
    Dry land
    Take this
    With you
    Fatshe leso

     

    And where the journey may lead you
    Let this prayer be your guide
    Though it may take you so far away
    Always remember your pride And where the
    journey may lead you

    Let this prayer be your guide
    Though it may take you so far away
    Always remember your pride

    We sit alone and watch your light, Our only friend through teenage nights
    And everything we want to get, We down-load from the internet

    No need to think, no need to feel
    When only Cyber space is real
    It makes us laugh. It makes us cry
    It makes us feel like we can fly, We can fly!

    A blueprint for our life on-line
    Touch any key The world is mine
    We're lost in space but we don't care
    Without your light our world's not there
    Complete control you are the power
    Our lives are programmed by the hour
    Global show, Global show

    All we hear is Radio ga ga, Video goo goo, Internet ca ca
    All we hear is Cyber space ga ga
    Marketing blah blah
    Always something new?
    Global soft All your world loves you!

    We watch our shows we watch your stars
    Across our screens for hours and hours
    We hardly need our eyes or ears
    We just log on and our dreams appear
    Global show

    Inters: We're not alone, we have our friends
    On Cyber love we can depend
    So stick around 'cos we'd all miss you
    We need our Graphics need our visual
    Complete control You are the power
    You use our lives up by the hour
    Global show

    All we hear is Radio ga ga, Video goo goo, Internet ca ca
    All we hear is Cyber space ga ga

    Always something new?

    All sing second chorus.

    Timon: I can see what's happening
    Pumba: What?
    Timon: And they don't have a clue
    Pumba: Who?
    Timon: They'll fall in love and here's the bottom line Our trio's down to two.
    Pumba: Oh.
    Timon: The sweet caress of twilight
    There's magic everywhere
    And with all this romantic atmosphere Disaster's in the air

    North and South Star:
    Can you feel the love tonight?
    The peace the evening brings
    The world, for once, in perfect harmony With all its living things

    Simba: So many things to tell her
    But how to make her see
    The truth about my past? Impossible! She'd turn away from me

    Nala: He's holding back, he's hiding
    But what, I can't decide
    Why won't he be the king I know he is
    The king I see inside?

    All: Can you feel the love tonight?
    The peace the evening brings
    The world, for once, in perfect harmony
    With all its living things

    Can you feel the love tonight?
    You needn't look too far
    Stealing through the night's uncertainties Love is where they are.

    Nala: And if he feels the love tonight, In the way I do
    Simba: It’s enough for this restless wonderer
    Simba and Nala: just to be with you

    We sit alone and watch your light, Our only friend through teenage nights
    And everything we want to get, We down-load from the internet


    No need to think, no need to feel
    When only Cyber space is real
    It makes us laugh. It makes us cry
    It makes us feel like we can fly, We can fly!


    A blueprint for our life on-line
    Touch any key The world is mine
    We're lost in space but we don't care
    Without your light our world's not there
    Complete control you are the power
    Our lives are programmed by the hour
    Global show, Global show


    All we hear is Radio ga ga, Video goo goo, Internet ca ca
    All we hear is Cyber space ga ga
    Marketing blah blah
    Always something new?
    Global soft All your world loves you!


    We watch our shows we watch your stars
    Across our screens for hours and hours
    We hardly need our eyes or ears
    We just log on and our dreams appear

    On Cyber love we can depend
    So stick around 'cos we'd all miss you

Covid-19 Return to Angmering School of Dance

Objective of the Guide

In preparation for our return to our new normal, this guide sets out our plan to reopen and rebuild our dance school in a world with COVID-19. It is not a quick return to ‘normality’ and inevitably, over the coming months, parts of this plan will have to adapted and updated in line with Government and The British Dance Council guidance.

This document aims to provide guidance and information on health and safety practices and approaches on how to prevent the spread of COVID-19 at ASD safely, while keeping the risk of contamination as low as possible.

Until the development of a vaccine or medicine, the COVID-19 virus is likely to continue circulating in our community. Physical distancing measures, increased hygiene and other precautions will be maintained for the foreseeable future. We hope that the following measures we are implementing will reassure you that ASD is doing all we can to open in a safe working environment, seems like a lot of rules but the following should ensure a reduced risk of spreading covid-19. And bring us back to a fun safe dance environment.

Our priority is managing a safe return, physically and mentally, for all teaching staff and dancers alike

 

General Understanding of Covid-19 in Returning to Angmering School of Dance

Symptoms of COVID-19

Infection with the virus that causes COVID-19 can cause illness, ranging from mild to severe, and, in some cases, can be fatal. It can take anything from 2 days up to 14 days for symptoms of coronavirus to appear. Common symptoms include:

  • Fever (high temperature) – 37.9 degrees Celsius or above
  • A cough - this can be any kind of cough, not just dry
  • Shortness of breath or breathing difficulties
  • Sore throat
  • Head cold e.g. runny nose or sneezing
  • Loss of sense of smell &/or taste

Some people infected with the virus, (asymptomatic cases) have experienced no symptoms at all.

How COVID-19 Spreads

The virus that causes COVID-19 disease is spread from people in fluid and in droplets scattered from the nose or mouth of an infected person when they cough, sneeze, speak or breathe harder during exercise. The fluid or droplets land on objects and surfaces around the infected person. Other people contaminate their hands by touching these objects or surfaces and then bring the virus into contact with their eyes, nose or mouth by touching them with their contaminated hands. COVID-19 can also spread if droplets from an infected person land directly on the mucous membranes of the eye, nose or mouth of a person standing close to them. 

It is still not fully understood how long the virus survives on surfaces in different conditions but studies indicate that it can remain for up to 72 hours on plastic and stainless steel, less than 4 hours on copper and less than 24 hours on cardboard. The period of survival may also vary under different conditions (e.g. temperature or humidity of the environment) and in the absence of effective cleaning. While people are most likely to pass on the infection when they have symptoms, current information suggests that some infected people spread the virus to others prior to developing or displaying symptoms themselves.

Actions to Consider Before Travelling to ASD

Anyone with any even mild symptoms of COVID-19 must stay at home. DO NOT ATTEND CLASSES.  Contact their GP, or call NHS 111 / emergency services and follow their guidance. Also contact the Head of Administration, Sandra on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and the Principal on 07782148830 at the earliest possible time and notify them about this situation so we can implement NHS track and trace procedures. In such situations you are likely to be requested to stay at home and isolate.

If a family member shows symptoms/is self-isolating/quarantined from Covid-19 you all will be required to follow government guidelines and Dancers MUST NOT ATTEND SESSIONS. 

In the Case of Someone displaying Symptoms during Dance classes

The Principal or teacher in charge will assess whether the symptomatic individual can immediately be directed to go home and call their doctor / NHS 111 and continue self-isolation at home.

The following procedure will take place in suspected cases of a person being symptomatic with COVID-19 whilst at ASD and who cannot leave the facility immediately and risks Infecting / transmitting the virus to others:

  • The unwell person will be isolated to an area which is away from other people (designated area- separate classroom). The dancer will be escorted by a teacher to the isolation room where they will maintain a 2 metres social distance the dancer will never be left alone.
  • A face mask, tissues, hand sanitiser, disinfectant and/or wipes will be provided. Advice should be given to the person presenting with symptoms to cover their mouth and nose with the disposable tissue provided when they cough or sneeze and put the tissue in the waste bag provided. They should avoid touching people, surfaces, and objects.
  • We will then locate their parent/carer by phone/ or emergency services as appropriate.
  • The isolation room and all other areas / touch points involved are to be thoroughly cleaned once the unwell person has left. Where a case is confirmed it may be necessary to close off specific areas and to undertake a deep clean in accordance with the government guidance and our risk assessment the Principal will report it to school site manager ASAP. Our ongoing thorough cleaning (with evidence of this) should also be considered. Disposal of waste following contact with, or cleaning areas that have been contaminated by a suspected Covid19-sufferer should follow the government guidelines of double-bagging, storing safely away from human contact for 72 hours or until a negative test result, after which time, the waste can be added to the general waste.
  • ASD will carry out an assessment of the incident which will form part of determining follow-up actions. In the event of the unwell person being diagnosed with Covid-19 those who have been in contact will follow the government guidance on self-isolation / be contacted by the NHS Test and Trace service.
Making Our environment Safe and identifying risks

ASD is doing all we can to open in a safe working environment, seems like a lot of rules but the following should ensure a reduced risk of spreading covid-19.

 

Detailed risk assessments have been carried out to identify what risks are posed by the layout of the facility, our activities to ensure we take reasonable steps to minimise those risks. As you may be aware, the Health and Safety Executive, Local Authority and our insurers are entitled to conduct checks at any time therefore it is important that we as a dance school including all our members follow Government and British dance council guidance.  This will be displayed on the board outside for parents to see along with availability of all new policies and procedures sent to each parent via email and available to view online at our website www.dancemering.co.uk under the Covid-19 tab.

Note: that these documents will work alongside our existing policy documents / RAs which continued to operate

How we will be Implementing the COVID-19 Prevention and Control Measures to Minimise Risk to all ASD members

The team here at ASD are prioritising health and safety along with staff/volunteer helpers and dancer’s

well-being. I will be putting together a full training, induction and orientation day for our teachers and student teachers prior to our return.

It will cover:

  • health, safety, well-being
  • addition to current policies and procedures
  • changes to work duties or tasks
  • priorities safety and welfare of dancers along with the new normal.
  • details of how the facility is organised to address the risk from COVID-19 and specific information regarding the necessary controls identified in the risk assessment to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our dance school.
  • addition of a Covid-19 Monitor for each day
  • orientation of building one-way systems
  • socially distance teaching guidelines.

In addition to an extended staff training day:

 

We will be implementing a New COVID-19 policy (see appendix 3)

Staggered start times – working a new timetable, allowing for one-way systems, and cleaning

Mental health & wellbeing awareness will be promoted and there will be an open-door policy for all who need additional support for both teachers and dancers alike.

The Principal is charged with ensuring that COVID-19 measures are strictly adhered to and key information will be reinforced by on a weekly basis.

All Staff will be encouraged to undergo Coronavirus testing as and when it is widely available and necessary when traveling from abroad.

 

What is required of parents prior to returning to sessions at ASD

How you can help reduce the risk.  As numbers are limited and to work in line with our new

Covid-19 policy, we will need you to do the following.

 

  1. return your reply slip confirming that your child will or will not be taking their space in September
  2. payment for a full term paid by BACS (in rare cases an alternative method of payment can be agreed with admin when necessary) no later than 3 days prior to first session
  3. complete a screening checklist form on behalf of your dancer and return via email 3 days before first session
  4. have a good understanding of the covid-19 policy and have purchased the following items for your dancer to use during the session: hand sanitiser, black canvas ballet shoes (MTC and contemporary pupils only ) small wipeable bag labelled with the dancers name.
  5. to ensure all family members are well and show no symptoms of Covid-19

 

It is understood that for all of us who have been away from dance for months, returning may feel unsettling and much has changed in the interim.  For any dancers with an underlying health condition that we are aware of (stated on enrolment form), an individual risk assessment will be completed based on personal circumstances and a copy emailed to parent of said child.  If anyone would like to discuss any of the above privately please request a one on one meeting with the Principal and or welfare officer via email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. 

What to expect On Arrival at ASD for our ‘New Normal’

Whilst adhering to Government and British dance council policies on Covid-19 it is important to put things in perspective.  The list of things below may seem daunting but once we have had a chance to get use to the new way of working, dancers, parents and teachers will all be rising to the challenge and enjoying our live in-person lessons once more.

 

One-way systems, dancers drop off and collection point:

Taking into consideration the results of the survey and in-line with Angmering school regulations of  limited adults inside school buildings there will be NO PARENTS ALLOWED ONTO SCHOOL GROUNDS there has been, a new fence and gated entrances erected at the school, access to the grounds beyond these gates is limited to teachers and students only unless for an emergency, so we have implemented drop off and collection system. Note: carparking will still be available

Please see Appendix 1 at the end of the document for access route.

The drop off point is where we will be doing the register and implementing our Symptom Screening - temperature check in line with our new Covid-19 policy. This check will be carried out for all teachers/ volunteers/ Dancers of ASD.

NOTE: In case of fever access will be refused. This screening is not intended to be, nor is it a substitute for, a clinical diagnosis. Hand sanitiser will be applied for all dancers. During this meet and greet to protect our staff and yourselves by limiting face to face contact the teacher doing temp checks will be wearing a face clear visor, this will be removed once within the school and will not be worn within the session, unless necessary to do so for cleaning and first aid or singing.

OUR NEW DANCERS ENTRANCE

We will NO LONGER use the sports reception entrance, as we have been given sole use of the DRAMA and NEW DANCE AREA we will be using the entrance from the Quad, and exit from small linking corridor between canteen and drama (both the entrance and exit points are used by us for exam days) please refer to Appendix 1

 

  • Those waiting to enter for lessons will queue on the green area outside of the new reception building (drop off point) at 2m intervals once signed in and through the gate pupils will wait at 2m intervals for teacher to collect and walk them in single file around to the Quad. A following a one-way flow system into the school to minimise cross-contamination, with the doors remaining open to reduce contact with the door handles will be implemented.
  • A designated member of staff will be at the entrance to limit the number of people entering the facility to dancers and teachers only, informing everyone of social distancing requirements. Signage will reinforce social distancing guidelines and one-way systems.
  • Dancers will enter the building through the door off the QUAD and be asked to change into their dance shoes, place all items including outdoor shoes into their own wipeable bag, putting this into allocated individual baskets, Hand sanitise and follow the teacher at a 2m distance up into their studio for the day adhering to the one- way systems within the building (appendix 2&3)
  • All DANCERS PERSONAL BELONGINGS should be kept to a minimum water bottle, dance shoes, hand sanitiser, any medical requirements e.g. inhalers which should be kept in a wipeable bag labelled with their name. These bags will be taken into the building and placed in individual baskets which will be cleaned after every session to avoid cross contamination, however due to space the baskets are small and only have space for the items listed above. Please ensure that no unnecessary items are brought with them to sessions.
  • For older ASD pupils that attend The Angmering school and that are staying at school before sessions. you will have to leave the building and then re enter following the instructions above as temp checks will need to be carried out and register taken. If you have school bags, these will be placed in the open lockers outside new dance studio where it is your responsibility to clean before and after use.

 

It is really important to familiarise your dancer with the new Covid-19 policy, and appendix so that they know what to expect on arrival, please visit our website www.dancemering.co.uk  for orientation video the first week in September this may help dancers have a look as to how it will work, reassuring them that although the entrance and exits may be different, we will still cover and be running our normal sessions, they will be fun and we want all dancers to feel at ease when returning.

 

Other General information
  • Where there are other school hires user the facility at the same time, it is important to note that we all have separate entrance and exits on and off site and when in the building ASD has sole use of the drama end of the building and sole use of the new super loos just off the Quad

NOTE: The double door leading to access corridor to main sport hall and gym will be locked to block access for other hires within our designated area

It is important not to cross with any other hires on arrival or exit to prevent unnecessary contact

 

  • If you have Paperwork that needs to be posted to admin, this is to be placed in a designated box on desk at the dancers drop off point, please note due to restrictions it will take a week to process as it will be boxed for 3 days before opened it is very important that all correspondence moving forward to be online via email direct to admin and all payments are now paid by BACS.
  • We will not accept poor behaviour of 3rd parties and there will be zero tolerance of ignoring guidelines to protect staff / members and avoid staff / members feeling unprotected. The Principal will reinforce best practice guidelines with staff and deal with any unnecessary behaviour. The Principal reserves the right to exclude dancers/parents and teaching staff if poor behaviour continues to be displayed.

 

Cloakrooms and Toilets

 

  • The changing facility is limited to Angmering school pupils only in the case that they are staying after school
  • All dancers are to come to the school changed, ready to participate. Coats should be left with the parent. Shoes must be kept in a named wipeable bag which will be left in a designated basket area within the cornered off corridor with any personal items (e.g. water bottle/mobile/inhaler)
  • Participants will use hand sanitiser before they go into the toilet areas then use sanitiser again on leaving the toilets having first washed their hands as per guidance provided at the sinks. All toilets will be sanitised each time they are used, and a deep clean will take place before we enter the facility and at the end of the day. The number of people allowed into the toilets at any one time will be limited to 2. There may need to be a greater staff presence around the toilet areas.
  • There will be 2 toilets allocated for girls and 2 allocated for boys, a separate toilet allocated for ASD teachers all clearly labelled on the doors
  • There is a one-way system out of the studios which will need to be followed when a pupil wishes to go to the toilet see appendix 2 – black arrows
  • Please make sure that your child has been to the toilet before coming to dance!!

 This will ensure that they have much time as possible within the session, as with the new one-way systems and cleaning regime the dancer will have to walk further and then wait until the teacher has effectively cleaned toilet are ready for next person which all takes time so they will miss out on fun dancing.  

Outside
  • All dancers must keep to the left at a 2m distance when walking around outside following teacher or student helper following the one-way system displayed on Appendix 1.
  • School site staff member will still be available for assistance should they be needed

 

 

Dance studio’s – what will be expected

A pre-lesson inspection and thorough cleaning will be carried out in each day on arrival of teaching staff.

 

  • The re-starting of each session will require that we stick to a certain number of participants per lesson this has been calculated according to the square footage in each of the studios and divided by social distancing rules. The total number of dancers in Drama will be 18, New dance studio 12, new drama 12. This will stay the same up until end of Autumn term when all guidelines will be reviewed.
  • Lessons will be planned effectively to ensure social distancing teaching measures whilst ensuring delivery in a fun and effective way. With regards to singing within our MTC session it will be done quieter with less projection and classes will be structured so large groups will not sing together and all pupils will be facing away from each other, Miss Polly when singing will be wearing clear PPE all kept at a 2m safe distance which will be clearly marked out. If a pupil would prefer to wear a clear face visor for singing? they are more than welcome to bring their own to use during session.
  • At the start of lesson dancers will place their belonging into the designated numbered basket provided as directed by staff, The dancer then changes into dance shoes as required and will be guided to a floor marker which allows the 2meter social distancing rule to be adhered throughout the lesson
  • Dancers will be asked to use hand sanitiser on entering, halfway through session and before they go home.
  • Session goals and new ways of working i.e. One-way systems will be communicated effectively from the teacher to the dancer this will be key to the success of the session being carried out safely. However, if a dancer is unsure, they must be encouraged to speak up so we can all move forward into the new normal as a team and everyone feels at ease when back in classes.
  • Dancers will be accompanied out of the studios to any other part of the building to ensure one-way systems are adhered too.
  • British dance council guidance does not make face masks mandatory and will not be worn during lessons, but if teachers feel for theirs and their family safety they would like to wear a face shield they will be allowed to do so. Clear visor face shields will be worn for cleaning, first aid and on entrance temp check where lots of face to face contact necessary also for singing.
  • FOR MTC & contemporary sessions: when using the new dance studio Black canvas ballet shoes must be worn.

 

Control / Reduce the Spread of Infection through People’s Hands and Surfaces

Cleaning

Undoubtedly, you as our members will have high expectations of cleanliness once we re-open. It is important to reassure you that we are doing all we can to ensure the facility is being cleaned frequently and thoroughly.

All staff who are participating in cleaning of any kind will be wearing clear face visor, gloves, and where necessary a face mask covering if they feel the need to do so.

  

Who will do the deep cleaning? School site team. This will be done before school opens in the morning

Then again at the end of the school day before we as a hirer can enter the facility.

Who will carry out cleaning of equipment before/ after use?  - Teachers.

Staff will be scheduled to assist with cleaning tasks before/after and during sessions when necessary and in accordance with the relevant checklist. There will be staff training for new cleaning regimes and new cleaning products. PPE is available for staff to use for cleaning. Cleaning materials will include disposable wipes, cleaning agents, disinfection products, paper towels and waste bins/bags. Staff will be made aware of any risks from cleaning products.

Touch surfaces - Frequently touched surfaces including light switches, door handles, music centre/stereo, etc will be wiped regularly and before / when used / when visibly dirty. These will be wiped by school site cleaning team in the morning , lunch and in all deep cleans, along with ASD teachers between each session and at the end of their day.

Toilets- these will be part of the school deep clean and cleaned after every use by ASD covid-19 monitor throughout each session and deep cleaned at the end of the day.

Who will (constantly) check and monitor standards, ensure compliance and review effectiveness? – Principal and designated lead teacher. A cleaning record will be placed in each room detailing what is to be cleaned and all cleaning must be recorded.

What gets cleaned? All main floor surfaces moped twice daily during schools deep clean, vinyl and all touch surfaces wiped or moped after each session, all equipment during each session when used and then at the end of the day

  • The number of waste bins will be increased and emptied regularly at the end of each day.
  • Older Dancers will be encouraged to share responsibility by ensuring that any equipment they use is cleaned after use.

Every member must become a part of our cleaning/housekeeping team and every staff member must become a friendly compliance ambassador! Provided we are all seen to be doing the right thing, members will be our advocates and encourage one another to be the same.

Hand Hygiene

All pupils and teachers must ensure they are familiar with and follow hand hygiene guidance and advice: 

  • Wash hands with soap and water or with an alcohol-based hand rub regularly and in particular:
  • before and after being on public transport (if using it)
  • when arriving and leaving the gym
  • before and after preparing food
  • before and after eating
  • before and after each class and if possible before and after each rotation. Before and after planned support of a skill
  • after coughing and sneezing
  • when hands are dirty
  • after toilet use
  • if in contact with someone who is displaying any COVID-19 symptoms
  • Avoid touching eyes, mouth, or nose
  • Don’t share objects that touch your mouth e.g. bottles / cups /food
Respiratory Hygiene

In addition to hand hygiene, good respiratory hygiene and cough etiquette is also necessary.

Tissues are provided throughout the facility as well as bins for their disposal. Bins are emptied daily.

Physical Distancing

Physical distancing is recommended to reduce the spread of infection. The current recommended distance to be maintained between people to minimise risk of transmission is 2 metres although in some settings is 1 meter. Physical distancing may be achieved:

  • one way system for entry/exit
  • sign-in/sign-out system adapted
  • no-contact greetings
  • direct contact minimised
  • working areas rearranged
  • small teams who consistently work together
  • reduced numbers of participants where needed
  • maintaining a distance of 2m / 1 m+ as needed
  • limited toilet facilities
  • meetings conducted via online when possible. Where face to face meetings are necessary participants must maintain physical distancing at all times. Meeting rooms should be well ventilated.
  • gatherings at the beginning and end of dropping off of gymnasts are discouraged

 

A contact log will be established - a list (date/ name of colleague/member) of anyone that a member of staff has come into contact with over the course of a shift without being able to observe the minimum distance rules for longer than 15 minutes. Each person will be responsible for the contact log and notifying the Principal that this has been completed. The log can then be used to establish a list of tasks that cannot be achieved using physical distancing – these tasks can be reviewed, and alternative control measures can be put in place for these tasks. 

First Aid and Safeguarding 
  • First aiders must be aware the symptoms of Covid-19
  • The first aider will aim to maintain social distancing if possible
  • Hands must be washed / sanitised prior to administering first aid and washed thoroughly afterwards. Gloves are available for use when carrying out first aid.
  • Following the administration of first aid, all areas contacted must be cleaned thoroughly
  • Safeguarding Policy and Procedures remain in place and any concerns must be reported to the welfare officer
  • There should always be 2 adults present who should always have sight of the activity in the gym.
  • In the event of an emergency evacuation it will not be necessary to remain 2m/1m+ apart if unsafe to do so.
  • A register of who has contracted or thinks they have contracted the Covid-19 virus will be set up.

  

Monitoring of all policies and information within this document

 

The effectiveness of the policies and procedures put in place will be constantly monitored and adapted / revised as necessary. The plan will also be reviewed in the light of further government guidance.

Every member plays a crucial role in making this work therefore all are encouraged to make suggestions for improvements and/or to raise concerns.
