Ahead of our Summer Film Weeks we will be adhering to the following guidelines.
No more than 15 young people will be attending the film course.
Upon arrival young people, directors and helpers will have their temperature checked via a non-contact Forehead Thermometer.
The same director(s) and other helpers will be assigned for the entire week.
We will create a controlled environment and ensure children and young people are in the same small group at all times between 10am and 5pm and not interacting with anyone else. Participants must remain with the group during each day’s course.
Participants must provide their own packed lunch so that they don’t enter public spaces during the day (such as supermarkets).
We’ll aim to practise social distancing in line with the measures the government is asking everyone to adopt in public and in workplaces.
Wherever possible children and young people will use the same location throughout the day, with a thorough cleaning of any indoor space at the end of the day.
Surfaces that young people are touching such as film equipment will be cleaned regularly throughout the day. Sharing equipment will be kept to a minimum.
We shall ensure that sufficient hand washing facilities are available, cleaning hands on arrival, before and after eating, and after sneezing or coughing. Where a sink is not nearby, we’ll provide hand sanitiser. We will encourage participants to wash their hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds and dry thoroughly.
Participants must use a tissue or elbow to cough or sneeze. We will provide a bin specifically for tissue waste (‘catch it, bin it, kill it’).
We’ll be sure to ventilate interior locations using natural ventilation (opening windows/doors).
Government guidance is that the wearing of face covering or face mask in schools or other education settings is not recommended. Face coverings (or any form of medical mask unless instructed to be used for specific clinical reasons) should not be worn in any circumstance by those who may not be able to handle them as directed (for example, young children) as it may inadvertently increase the risk of transmission.
We’ll minimise contact with individuals who are unwell by ensuring that those who have coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, or who have someone in their household who does, do not attend.
