Entry into the premises
Students must arrive to their lesson at their lesson time and are not permitted to wait in the building. Either wait outside or arrive at your lesson time and go straight in.
Parents are asked not to enter the building unless they have prearranged it with Anna. If you need to speak to a teacher or if you ave any queeries then please call/text/email Anna to arrange this. This will limit the amount of people entering the area and enable us to control the environment much easier.
Payment can be arranged online or an envelope can be sent in with your child to hand to our administrator on the first week of term. Payment via card payment or bank transfer is preferable where possible.
Students must use the hand sanitisers provided upon entering and exiting the building.
All students will be required to sanitise at the beginning and end of the lesson and the work space and instruments/music stands used will be sanitised by the teacher between each lesson. Each teacher will have a sanitising station in their rooms.
Teachers will wear masks/visors at lessons where students are over the age of 13 or for under 13’s upon request of the parent or student. Please be sure to ask if this is your preference.
