Covid Procedures

StageScreen MTA is committed to ensuring the health and wellbeing of all students, staff and volunteers and will continue to follow the advice of the UK Government, NHS, Public Health England and our local Health Protection Team.

We will continue to review and update our procedures as the situation develops and as more information becomes available.

Before their child attends a class or workshop, parents must agree to complete the health questionnaire, which confirms that no-one in their household has any of the specified symptoms or has been told to self-isolate. The questionnaire is linked from the home page of this website.

No parents will be allowed on site. Students must be dropped off and collected, by one parent only, at specified places that will be notified in advance. Students will be admitted one at a time.

Temperature checks will be performed and recorded and a member of staff will check-in each student providing their temperature is normal and the health questionnaire has been completed. Any student found to have a fever will be immediately isolated and their parents will be contacted to collect them.

A face covering must be worn in the corridors of the Oakland Village venue. On arrival, all students must immediately wash their hands and will then be shown to the studio by a member of staff.

Students should arrive suitably dressed, ready to take part in class. No bare feet will be allowed and there will be an allocated space where students can put on their dance shoes.

There will be rest periods every 30 minutes for movement classes. There will be staggered toilet breaks for small groups of students.

Singing will only take place in small bubbles of student groups. Students will be placed side by side or back to back with three-metre-plus social distancing in place.

Any student, student’s family member, teacher or volunteer who tests positive for COVID-19 up to two weeks after a class or workshop must immediately inform StageScreen management.

Risk assessments will be maintained and regularly updated as necessary.
