School of Larks  Covid-19 Policy

Back-to-School Student Safety Guidelines for Covid-19 Prevention 
5th - 16th April 2021

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 (masks will not be worn by teachers for any classes with students under the age of 12. If any student would like to wear a mask for any reason, they are most welcome to).
  • Social distancing.
  • Taking of temperatures on the wrist.
  • 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 will have their temperatures taken on the wrist and 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 £19.
  5. Aerial students (under the age of 18) will be in a buddy system with one other student. They will be with this same person in each class for the whole half term period. Students already in a bubble with someone else will be with that person.
  6. For aerial classes, students will be training on one piece of equipment with a buddy in each class. Expect to be rotated to another piece of equipment for each subsequent class.
  7. Students age 12 and over must follow social distancing rules with other students and teachers during classes (apart from their buddy).
  8. Students need to come to the class in clothing ready for training as no one is allowed to change in the venues.
  9. Masks will be worn by teachers in classes for ages 12 years plus for the duration of the class. This is in order to ensure the safety of everyone involved.
  10. Windows will be open to allow adequate ventilation in the room. Please make sure layers are worn to keep at a comfortable temperature.
  11. 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.

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.
