As always, we will be taking a register at the start of each class and will have your details in our system from your online registration to our classes, so we can easily contact you and if needs pass this information on to track and trace. Bromley high school will also have a copy of this, as well as a record of all staff on site each week.
When should / shouldn’t a student attend classes at GWDA Ballet and Funky Jazz classes at Bromley High School and what will happen if there is a POSITIVE COVID test result at our academy?
If there is a CONFIRMED case in our dance academy class bubble we must close down this class bubble and isolate. This goes for ALL students within this class bubble AND the teacher. In this case classes will immediately switch to zoom.
If your child is sent home from school because there is a confirmed case in their school bubble and told they must isolate for 14 days they CANNOT come to our classes during this time, even if they have no symptoms.
If one of our student’s siblings/ household member is isolating under the advice of Track and Trace or their school, and remains well with no symptoms, the student IS allowed to attend our classes.
If someone in your household (NOT one of our students directly) has a POSITIVE test but our student remains symptomless we do NOT need to close down our dance class bubble. This is because ourselves and the other students are SECONDARY contacts. The student in question however, will have to isolate with their household and NOT attend classes with us.
If a student attends our class has SYMPTOMS but no positive test, we can keep our class running until we know the results of the test. Obviously, the student with symptoms cannot attend while awaiting test results.
If someone in the household with one of our students has SYMPTOMS, you must isolate and NOT ATTEND our classes until you know the outcome of the test.
To explain our teacher / class set up’s in case of a positive result at our academy:
Bubble A is taught by Teacher A. A student in bubble A tests positive for COVID19. The student, bubble A and teacher A have to isolate and our classes will switch to zoom.
Teacher A also taught bubble B & bubble C etc … These bubbles are counted as ‘SECONDARY’ contacts and do NOT have to isolate. Obviously a replacement teacher will teach the lessons whilst Teacher A isolates, or, if this is not possible classes will switch to Zoom.
Finally- DO NOT attend our classes if our student or their household have travelled outside of the UK within the last 14 days to countries not included in the ‘safe to travel’ corridors list as currently dictated by the UK government.
A reminder of CORONA virus symptoms:
-A high temperature
– A new, continuous cough
– The loss or change of sense of taste or smell
PLEASE NOTE: IF a case was detected at Bromley High School and Public health England was contacted, any decision they make would override any of the stipulations above and Bromley High would manage it with direct contact to you as the parents of the BHS girls.
A polite reminder that if your daughter has been off school unwell she CANNOT attend our afterschool ballet classes, even if they are feeling better.
