We will be providing hand sanitiser for pupils to use upon entry and when exiting workshops and where possible intend to wipe down materials in between sessions. Presenters will be come equipped with a face shield to be used when addressing the group and face masks when in discussion with individuals or smaller groups.
Workshops need to take place in the school dining hall, gym or sports hall. All the structure are dismantled as part of the workshop experience, so we are able to be out of dining halls in time for the catering staff to put out tables, which if necessary we will assist with.
Photographs are permitted of the workshops, so please ensure batteries in your cameras are fully charged. Video recording of the workshop process is strictly prohibited, as the processes of the workshops are covered by our copyright, but you may video your pupils during the activity.
