How will A-life Workshops run from September 2020? Online & in school options

How will A-life Workshops run from September 2020?

“Returning to school is vital for children’s education and for their wellbeing. This means making judgments at a school level about how to balance and minimise any risks from coronavirus (COVID-19) with providing a full educational experience for children.”

Government Guidance for full opening: schools

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/actions-for-schools-during-the-coronavirus-outbreak/guidance-for-full-opening-schools

 

From September 2020 we are extending our workshop provision for schools to include online workshop options for schools that will keep their doors closed to visitors for a while longer.

When visiting schools, all our workshops will be run with measures in place to reduce the risk to the lowest practicable level while still keeping the fun, hands-on elements.

 

Measurements include:

  • Just one presenter visits the school
  • Hand sanitiser is provided for children to apply at the start and end of the workshop
  • Children attending the workshop are kept within their bubbles (maximum number of children at each session varies depending on workshop – see info below)
  • Option for children to carry out activities in smaller groups
  • Children will be asked not to touch display boards
  • For some activities fewer resources will be set out to allow for thorough cleaning between sessions
  • A break has been introduced into our timetable between each workshop/bubble for enhanced cleaning of resources

Alcohol and Drug Awareness Workshop (Years 5-8)

Online Option (Bronze Package) – coming soon
