Covid-19 Policies

We're committed to keeping out students and staff safe & healthy during classes, so we've implemented additional safety measures to ensure all students can enjoy their classes safely.

When arriving at classes, students & parents are asked to wait outside the venue, where they will be greeted by a teacher and escorted into the building. Wherever possible, there will be a separate entrance & exit into the building.

 

Younger students in Melody Bear & Rosette can be accompanied by an adult.

Contactless Payments

We want to minimise contact, so all pay as you go fees must be placed into a named envelope, and placed directly into a teacher's zipped wallet.

Uniform & Changing

Unfortunately we will not be able to utilise changing facilities, so please arrive in clean uniform suitable for your classes, as you will not be able to change while at the studio.

Social Bubbles

All current classes have been organised into social bubbles to ensure students are not mixing and interacting with other classes. Unfortunately this means students in Grade 3 and below will not be able to double up on classes or participate in class outside of their bubble.

Each student will be assigned one of the below colour bubbles, and you will see this reflected in the amended timetables & schedules.

Pale Blue

Orange

Things To Remember

As well as introducing new policies & procedures during class, there are things you can do at home and before attending the studio to help keep your friends and families safe.
