Covid RULES & REGULATIONS
2020/21 risk assessment.
Premises – All Saints Weston. Chestnut Avenue, Weston Green, Esher KT10 8JL
REVISED FOR AUTUMN 2021
PERSONAL SPACE We have measured the dance hall and have devided the children’s work space into 3 metre by 2+ metre spaces. This is outlined by marking the floor and will allow for no more than 10-12 children in a class. Extra space on top of this has been allocated for teachers and assistants by opening the area of hall usually used as a waiting and changing room.
We will continue to use these spaces but will gradually introduce children back to a more normal class from Autumn 21 unless advised otherwise.
Autumn 21 - parents of very young children will be invited to wait in the All Saints Church Hall hallway. Parents with children in classes two and above will have use of a new waiting area in the actual All Saints Church just beside the dance hall, where we will be able to call for you if needed.
We have suggested parents bring their own flask/drink for the time being until we have use of the kitchen.
SAFE ARRIVAL & EXIT Children under the age of 16yrs should not be left unattended, we cannot be responsible for the children outside of their class.
Parents are asked to always inform a teacher or another class parent if an older child is to be left alone. Please make sure your child always has a contact number to reach you - we suggest keeping it clearly written somewhere in their dance bag and also in their phone contacts, if they have one.
Parents asked to always accompany their child. Please do not let your child run up from the car park alone in case hall is closed for any reason.
Upon arrival parents and dancers from class two upwards, will be asked to get ready in the Church waiting area - then line up ready for one of the dance assistants to come accross and call them. Children will file in – use hand sanitiser, take off coats and change shoes and go to their chosen dance space.
This term your child’s outdoor clothes will be left on chairs set out for them in the hallway, they will need their dance bag with their tap shoes in, to bring in with them.
A few minutes before the end of class parents from Class Two upwards, to wait inside the little side garden for their children. We have a different exit to entrance. Children will file out carefully one at a time. Please wave/step forward and make yourself visible to assistant.
Parents inside to please wear face covering.
UNIFORM Children have been asked to come wearing their dance attire ready under their warm outdoor coat with a big dance bag for their shoes and warm up garments.
Please show children how to put on their ballet/tap shoes – stickers work well for the little ones to get the right foot! Class Two please wear white tap shoes that do up with VELCRO so no laces to tie.
DANCERS HAIR TO BE WORN OF FACE AND IN A BUN, THIS WILL LIMIT THE NEED TO TOUCH FACE AND EYES.
Please check up to date regulations on GOV.UK.
Rules at children’s school will be a good guide.

We will have windows open during the morning and will open doors between classes. Hand sanitiser, sprays and wipes available.

*If possible - class will be covered by another teacher or class will be made up another time.
Government lockdown - If possible, classes will be covered online or work sent out via another online platform.
We are doing all we can to make the return to 'in person' dance classes at All Saints Hall as safe as possible. Please read this assessment and please speak to us if there are any other precautions you feel we can implement that could help.
