COVID-19

Please read our COVID-19 Policy below. You can also read our FAQS here, download our full risk-assessment here or ask us a question using the 'Contact' link in the menu.

When you register your child to join one of our sewing clubs or workshops, whether in school premises or elsewhere, you agree to the following statements and acknowledge that it is your responsibility to inform Pins & Needles of any changes in your child's health.

I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 Coronavirus and that the latest government guidance recommends practising social distancing and a range of other protective measures. 

 

I recognise that Pins & Needles has put in place a series of protective measures to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission within the setting, but I accept that Pins & Needles cannot guarantee that my child will not be exposed to COVID-19 whilst attending the club.

 

I understand that I must follow the procedures set out by Pins & Needles when collecting my child from the setting.

 

I understand the importance of vigilance regarding COVID-19 symptoms as a keystone of preventing the transmission of the virus to other children, staff and parents. 

 

Accordingly, I confirm that:

My child is not experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms such as cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell

My child has not tested positive for COVID-19, or been advised by NHS Test & Trace to self-isolate

My child has not been in contact with anyone in our household who has COVID-19 symptoms, or who has been advised by NHS Test & Trace to self-isolate

My child has not travelled abroad to any country other than those identified as ‘safe’ by the government within the last 14 days

My child is capable of following the club rules relating to protective measures, such as not mixing with children in other bubbles, washing their hands regularly, coughing and sneezing into a tissue and disposing of it safely, and not touching other children

I understand that if they are unwilling to follow the rules they may not be allowed to attend future sessions
