Dear Parents,

Please read and confirm you have read, and agree to the following information re COVID 19 and the measures in place at both our Encore PAA Studios and classes, based on Government guidelines.

Anyone who has coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, such as a raised temperature, a new persistent cough, or a loss or change to their sense of smell or taste, should stay at home. They should not attend Encore PAA studio and should follow Stay at home guidance for households with possible or confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection and get a test.

If your child becomes unwell while at Encore PAA, we call you immediately to come and collect them. While your child is awaiting collection they will be kept separately from others by a distance of at least 2 metres, in a well-ventilated room with appropriate adult supervision.

You should arrange a test for them as soon as possible to see if they have coronavirus (COVID-19). You can do this by visiting NHS or HSE Website, contact NHS 119 via telephone if you do not have internet access or contact your GP. You and other fellow household members should self-isolate for 14 days.

If your child tests negative, they can usually return to Encore PAA subject to confirmation from local health protection professionals.

If your child tests negative but is unwell, they should not return to Encore PAA until they are recovered.

If your child tests positive, please contact Rebecca Thompson immediately so she can contact those that have been in contact with your child to offer advice. This advice may be that the rest of their class or group within Encore PAA should be sent home and advised to self-isolate for 14 days.

Please note that children are only permitted to arrive at the studio no earlier than 5 minutes before their start time which will help minimise contact and mixing between groups of children by altering the environment to allow for social distancing between children and keeping children in small consistent groups.

The measures within the Encore PAA Studios are as follows:

  • We encourage staff and children attending to clean their hands more often than usual, including before and after activities and before and after using toilet/washroom facilities.

  • Ensure good respiratory hygiene by promoting the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach.

  • Cleaning frequently touched surfaces more often than usual using standard products, such as detergent or bleach.

  • Increased frequency of cleaning of toilets and washrooms.

  • As this is a very fluid situation, this policy can change based on further Government or Medical advices that we may receive.

  • Please tick the box to acknowledge you have read and agree to the information provided.

Thank You
