Coronavirus Policy

At Music Tree Tuition, we ensure that all staff are fully aware of all aspects of the health and safety of our students and teachers. 

At this time, we are aware of the need to provide safe lessons. We are up to date on Government guidelines that are to be followed and we raise awareness through training notices, team meetings and supervision on these. Laura Tetlow – owner is the Policy lead on this.

Coronavirus Policy at work

We have a Coronavirus Policy in place to protect both pupil and teacher during our lessons during the current period:

  • The teacher will assess the teaching room before and after lessons commence and will clean any surfaces that could pose a cross contamination risk with antiseptic wipes.
  • Antiseptic hand gel will be used by the teacher before and after sessions.
  • Antiseptic wipes will be used on shared instruments before and after sessions.
  • The teacher will have their own demonstration instrument where appropriate to use in lessons to stop cross contamination.
  • The student will be instructed to wash their hands before lessons and/or to use antiseptic hand gel.
  • No food is to be consumed by the student during sessions but students may bring a bottle of water into lessons.
  • Students will be asked to wait outdoors for their lesson; The previous student exits after their session has ended and the next student enters. 
  • Students will be asked to not bring any additional personal than is necessary to the lesson. 
  • The window of the teaching room will be open to encourage free air flow. 
  • The teacher will take weekly Lateral Flow tests.
  • The teacher and student (if above school year 7) has the personal choice to wear a face mask when entering or exiting the building. Face coverings will not be worn during lessons.
  • The teacher will not teach and will self-isolate if they show any symptoms of Coronavirus.
  • Please do not come to your lesson if you have any of the symptoms of Coronavirus or are unwell. Lessons can be taken via video if requested.

Music Tree Tuition takes the health and safety of our students and teachers very seriously and we feel that the measures above will enable us to provide safe lessons at this time.
