The department will work with stakeholders to provide more detailed advice on school activities in advance of school reopening.
Choir practices/performances and music practices/performances involving wind instruments may pose a higher level of risk and special consideration should be given to how they are held ensuring that the room is well-ventilated and the distance between performers is maintained.
Where possible students should be encouraged to have their own individual art and equipment supplies.
Shared electronic devices such as tablets, touch screens, keyboards should be cleaned between use and consideration could be given to the use of wipeable covers for electronics to facilitate cleaning.
To the greatest extent possible, instruments should not be shared between students and if sharing is required, the instruments should be cleaned between uses.
Where practical students should have their own books. Textbooks that are shared should be covered in a wipeable plastic covering that can be wiped with a suitable household cleaning agent between uses. Students should be encouraged to perform hand hygiene after using any shared item.
Shared Sports Equipment
Minimise equipment sharing and clean shared equipment between uses by different people.
