Covid-19 Information
(Updated September 2021)

'Clay, Paper, Scissors' have completed risk assessments in order to ensure that our classes are designed to keep us all as safe and well as possible.

 

Please read all of the following information so that you know the procedures that must be adhered to.

  • For our Family Events

  • Please do not attend the event if you, or any member of your household, are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms or if they have been experienced during the last 7 days. This also applies if you, or any member of your household, have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been advised to isolate by the NHS Test and trace system.

  • Please book in advance where possible. There is a maximum of 6 visitors or two households at a time in the studio.(If you made a booking but then are unable to come please let us know by email without delay.)

  • Please enter the studio by the right hand door (there will be a sign) and then exit via the double doors.

  • All members of the group must wash or sanitise their hands upon entry.

  • It is recommended that masks be worn by any member of the group that is 12 years and over.

  • Please ensure that you maintain social distancing throughout your visit.

  • Please use a tissue to contain a cough or sneeze and place this in the bin before washing your hands.

  • Please do not eat or drink in the studio.

  • We aim for every visitor to have their own materials and any that need to be shared will be cleaned in between use. There is a 5 minute window in between each session for cleaning of surfaces and furniture in between groups too.

  • If you or any member of your group or household develop COVID-19 symptoms within 7 days of attending the event, you must inform us by email (claypaperscissors@outlook.com) and use the NHS Test and Trace system to alert others.

Please do get in touch by email if you have any queries about these guidelines.
 
Our risk assessment will be ongoing and any changes or additions to our practise will be added to this page and dated accordingly.  
  • For our regular Classes and Courses

  • Please do not allow your child to attend a class if they, or any member of their household, are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms or if they have experienced them during the previous 7 days. This also applies if your child, or any member of their household, have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been advised to isolate by the NHS Test and Trace system.​

  • Children will need to be dropped off at the main entrance (right hand door) and picked up from the double doors (left side), in order to comply with the separate entrance and exit  doors now in place.

  • Wearing masks (parents/carers) and/or giving each other space at pick up and drop off is recommended. 

  • There remains a recommended number of people allowed into the studio, in order to maintain appropriate distancing in our classes. Therefore, parents will not be able to stay with their child for the duration of the session as before (unless it is an Open Studio or Family event). It may be possible for a parent/carer to enter the studio for a short time, in order to settle their child at the start of the class if necessary. Please let us know beforehand either by email or on the booking form if you would like to organise this. 

  • Children will be asked to wash their hands on entering the studio and they will be reminded about frequent hand washing/sanitising, best hygiene practise for coughs and sneezes and distancing during the introduction. All hand sanitisers and hand washing supplies are provided.​

  • Children may now bring a healthy snack and a drink to their class should they wish. Please make sure all personal belongings including water bottles, coats etc are named. ​

  • After the class, the studio will continue to be thoroughly cleaned so that there is minimal risk of transmission from one group to another. 

  • If a child falls unwell during a class, we will follow the Government guidelines which require us to call their parent/carer immediately in order for them to be collected. 

  • If your child or any member of your household develops COVID-19 symptoms, as described above, within 7 days of attending a class, you must inform us by email (claypaperscissors@outlook.com) without delay and use the NHS Test and Trace system to alert others.
