FACILITIES: We have created one big, spacious classroom to allow for adequate distancing and every student to have his or her own desk.
VENTILATION: We have improved the ventilation system. Fresh air is circulated not recycled between each class. We monitor the CO2 level so that it is below 700 ppm at the beginning of each class, and never above 1000.
CLEANING: The entire centre is cleaned and disinfected every day. Tables, chairs and frequently used items are disinfected between each session.
SMALL GROUPS: All groups have strict number limits. Groups are between 5 and 11 students.
MASKS: All students over 6 years old must wear masks. Students under that age will help protect their fellow classmates and teacher if they wear a mask, although they are not obliged to do so.
TRACKING: The attendance of students attending each class is recorded and communicated daily by whatsapp.
DETECTION OF SYMPTOMS: In the case that a younger student displays symptoms, h/she will be taken to a separate area, not to the classroom, where family will be contacted and h/she may wait to be collected.
SEPARATION BETWEEN GROUPS: There is a ten-minute break between each class, for disinfection of tables and chairs, and to avoid agglomeration.
CLASS MATERIAL: Is individual. Students are welcome to bring personal computers or tablets.
SAFE METHODOLOGY: We continue a ludic, dynamic methodology, adapting process to ensure that our fun is safe fun! For example we use digital dice, teams without touching, large screen visible for all…
CONFINEMENT OF STUDENTS: You can join the class via Zoom. We'll send the link via whatsapp. Of course, young children will need to be accompanied by an adult who can help with the technology for the entire duration of the class, given that they themselves don't yet have the technological skills to participate on their own. You will need access to a mobile, a computer, camera, microphone and audio. This is completely optional, some parents have taken great advantage of the service with their children, others opt for in-class sessions only.
CONFINEMENT OF TEACHER: Classes will continue online via Zoom, or will be recorded and broadcast via YouTube or will be made up at a later date. Students will be advised by class whatsapp.
MAKING UP CLASSES AND CALENDAR: All groups receive 32 sessions. From February 28th to March 4th there is a contingency period to make up any sessions which could not be offered.
UPDATING OF PROTOCOL: All protocols must be in line with government regulations and as such may be altered in line with official policy.
