CHILD PROTECTION, SAFE GUARDING AND GDPR
Here at HW Dance your child's safety is our main priority.
Due to the current situation our main aim as always is to keep our students and staff safe. We are following government advice with the following agreement.
If the student, any one in their house hold or other bubbles (each dance class is a separate bubble under government guidelines) develops signs of COVID 19 (following the signs advised on NHS direct and from the government) they MUST get a test done, and isolate until the test results come back. This includes, school, dance, other after school activity’s and work.
If a student has shown signs and is needing to get a test (or someone in their bubble or house hold has) as their parent/guardian you MUST alert HW Dance straight away as we can put our procedures in to place.
Once the student has presented a clear test they may return to class. While they are off due to covid if they are well enough they are welcome to do their class via zoom.
It is at the discretion of the dance teacher if they suspect the student is showing signs of covid 19 they can advice the child does not take part in the class
All parents must drop off and collect from the gate. 1 student/family will be aloud to leave/enter at any one time. Social distancing must be followed. Should you wish to speak to the teacher you must wait until they have finished their duty’s, and then you may socially distance communicate with them.
Parents may not enter the studio while we are in a Covid 19 situation
Our main staff all have a DBS certificate (which can be checked with the DBS register at any point).
While we hope to not need to perform any first aid at HW Dance, while it is not a requirement to have a first aider in the team, our staff have had first aid training.
