  • Have a new and continuous cough; a temperature of more than 37.7 degrees and/or have experienced a loss of or change to sense of taste or smell.

  • Have been in contact with anyone who has had a positive COVID-19 test and so has been advised to isolate.

If your child has COVID-19 symptoms, you must follow these steps:


  • Your child MUST stay at home, and ALL MEMBERS OF THE HOUSEHOLD need to be tested

  • You should be tested as soon as possible, and self-isolate until you get a result

  • After a negative test, your child may return (we require proof of this)

  • If the result is positive, your whole household must self-isolate for 14 days



If there is a confirmed case among someone attending your child’s session, the whole class must self-isolate for 14 days. If anyone in your household reports any symptoms, you must be tested.


It is vital they do not attend FRESH Art Club if any of the above situations apply.





  • All workspaces will be cleaned before the session and hygiene will be maintained during the session.

  • Automated hand gel pumps will be stationed at the entrance for the children to use as they arrive and leave.

  • Every child will have their temperature taken with a non-contact thermometer before they come in. If their temperature is above 37.7 °C they will not be able to attend their session.

  • After each session the tables, chairs and materials will all be wiped cleaned with a safe antibacterial product and disposable cloths.

  • Children should only bring a named water bottle and coat to their session.

  • Children will be expected to come into and leave class one at a time.

  • To avoid crowding and to maintain social distancing parents will not be permitted to enter the room with their child. Children will be admitted one at a time. When collecting you should wait outside at a safe distance from other parents until your child is brought to you.

  • Every child will have their own large table with chair at a two-metre distance from other tables and their own set of materials to use during the session.

  • They will not leave their table during the session unless they need to go to the toilet, need first-aid or become unwell.

  • We will have our own toilets which will be cleaned before and after each session.

  • In the event of a lockdown or if any children or a member of their families develop COVID-19 symptoms and test positive, please let us know immediately. We will then inform the rest of their group and families to self-isolate for 14 days and their sessions will stop for 14 days.

  • The sessions will go ONLINE until it is safe to resume face to face.
