School of Larks  Covid-19 Policy

Back-to-School Student Safety Guidelines for Covid-19 Prevention 
28th February - 9th April 2022

These are the measures that we will be taking for optimum safety against Covid-19:
  • Soap and water for washing hands.
  • Minimum of 70% Alcohol based hand sanitiser.
  • Hypochlorous Acid (this is a completely non toxic but highly effective disinfectant with a 99.999% disinfectant rate. We have chosen to use this to disinfect our equipment and spaces because it is effective, environmentally friendly and non toxic. It consists of water and salt which is converted through electrolysis into hypochlorous acid).
  • Face masks may be worn by teachers whilst spotting students and demonstrating if students are age 11 and over. If any student would like to wear a mask for any reason, they are most welcome to do so.
  • Social distancing.
  • Taking of temperatures on the wrist (for students under the age of 16).
  • Ventilation.

Students must adhere to the following:
  1. Students must wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds on entering and before leaving the venue.
  2. Students must use hand sanitiser or hypochlorous acid spray (provided) immediately before using any of the equipment and also after.
  3. Students under the age of 16 will have their temperatures taken on the wrist (at a distance of a few centimetres) just before they wash their hands after arrival in class. Any students above the normal temperature will need to wait in a designated area outside the room to be picked up by their parents.
  4. All students need to bring their own exercise/pilates/yoga mat for warm ups and cool downs. These can be purchased from School of Larks if needed for £20.
  5. For aerial classes and handstand classes, students may be buddied up and either train on one piece of equipment per class OR rotate on all of the equipment (this is at the teacher's discretion). Those training on one piece of equipment can expect to be rotated to another piece of equipment for each subsequent class.
  6. Face masks may be worn by teachers whilst spotting students and demonstrating if students are age 11 and over. If any student would like to wear a mask for any reason, they are most welcome to do so.
  7. Windows will be open to allow adequate ventilation in the room. Please make sure layers are worn to keep at a comfortable temperature.
  8. Students must not attend classes if they have any Covid-19 symptoms such as a new persistent cough, fever or loss of smell or taste. Or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive or has symptoms.

NB: We will be reviewing the above constantly and if any measure prevents us from doing our job properly and safely we will amend accordingly. We will notify you of any changes that are made. Any parents that have any concerns or questions about the safety measures we are taking, do please email us.
