Members of staff do not have to wear a mask so long as they are at least 2.5 meters away from the front line of students.

Members of staff can move around / between students while teaching so long as they are wearing a mask and do not spend longer than 30 seconds in close proximity to an individual child.

Parents are not allowed to enter the dance studio or any studios at all. The Link has confirmed with us that the seating area above the studios is ok for parents to sit as long as they abide with the current social distancing rules.

In the event of a student within any bubble/class having a positive COVID result theschool will, unfortunately, have to shut that class down for two weeks.
