JOIN US FOR OUTDOOR & ONLINE CLASSES THIS SUMMER!
Please read our Good Practise Guide and our Risk Assessment before joining a real life class.
With the current health crisis, Wyre Forest Taekwondo has taken every reasonable step to make your return to Taekwondo as safe as possible. Please ensure you have read and understood this good practise guide, and our complete risk assessment document.
Our aim is to support the wellbeing of every student, so please contact Instructor Katie Billingham on 07885 293088 if you have any concerns, or if there is anything we can do to help.
All students have responsibility for health and safety in line with relevant legislation, which include:
· Taking reasonable care of the health and safety of themselves and other people
· Not interfering with or obstructing anything that is provided in the interests of health and safety
· Not carry out any act that would deliberately put themselves or others at risk.
Do not leave home if you or someone you live with has any of the following:
· a high temperature (37.8C or higher) or a fever
· a new, continuous cough (coughing a lot for more than an hour or having three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours)
· a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste
Check the NHS website if you have symptoms or call 111 if you are concerned.
We would also ask you not to attend with any of the following symptoms:
· Shortness of breath
· Difficulty in breathing
· Muscle pain
· Sore throat
· Runny or stuffy nose
· A loss of taste or smell
· Change in the colour of the toes
Symptoms in children:
· A rash
· Red, cracked lips
· Red eyes
· Swelling of the feet or hands
· Joint pain
· Vision problems.
Please make sure you wash your hands before you leave the house.
Students are advised to bring antibacterial hand gel to class to maintain high hygiene levels
Please remember to cough or sneeze into your elbow joint.
Nails should be kept short so that they cannot harbour bacteria (and so that they do not scratch people).
Hair should be tied back.
Showering or bathing should be regularly carried out.
Hair should be washed.
Clothing must be freshly laundered – uniforms should not be worn outside of the setting to avoid potentially infecting other locations.
Clothing should be removed before re-entering the family home.
Watches and rings should not be worn (not that we would allow them anyway!) as these too can provide breeding areas for bacteria.
Bring your own tissues to class for coughs and sneezes
Do not touch any equipment (e.g. cones) you see around using your hands
AT THIS TIME TOILETS ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR STUDENT USE.
The outdoor areas have minimal things to touch.
Please always attempt to avoid touching fencing/gates.
Please bring a floor mat or thick jumper to use to avoid touching the ground for certain exercises
When the time comes to be moved indoors, we will take the necessary measures to maintain venue cleanliness between sessions.
We have considered how to organise your training area so that you can keep 2m apart including:
Physically arranging work areas to keep people apart
Marking areas using floor paint or cones
Providing signage to remind people to keep their distance from each other
Avoiding having people working face-to-face and placing them side-by-side instead
Water bottles should be placed in the students own training area, or carefully spaced from others if they need to be in shade.
Student numbers will be restricted per session
Parents/Guardians should wait far away but with eyesight of their child.
Be aware of maintaining distance while entering and leaving the space
Classes will ensure that students maintain distance at all time. Please be careful during arrival, leaving and during drink breaks, to always maintain 2 metre distance from anyone not in your own household.
If you wish to be social with your group before or after class, please step away from the main class to allow correct group distances.
STRICTLY NO CONTACT BETWEEN STUDENTS FROM DIFFERENT HOUSEHOLDS
The current government advice is that the public IS advised to wear PPE, however with physical exercise it can restrict the flow of oxygen.
You are welcome to wear as much PPE to class as makes you feel comfortable, but it is not essential.
Gloves have not been recommended to the public as these would need to be changed frequently to avoid the transmission of infection, but you are welcome to wear them if you wish.
Anyone who is high risk is advised to maintain online classes for the time being.
If someone in your home is vulnerable, the decision is yours to assess.
We will always take every measure to keep everyone distanced and safe.
Please see updated government advise to determine your personal risk category.
Please email WyreForestTaekwondo@gmail.com to receive a full copy of the current risk assessment, stating which venue you will be attending.
Classes will be booked each week with priority to those on standing order. As numbers are limited there will be waiting lists for each session. Please only book in if you are certain you can attend. Cancellation with as much notice as possible please to allow someone else to take the space. Classes must be paid for in advance.
