Covid-19 Policy

We are committed to keeping both our staff and the children we teach safe in these uncertain times, we have considered how we keep the environments we teach in clean and healthy.

The Sew What? team have all completed a Prevent Covid 19 – online training course, see Fiona’s Prevent Covid-19 Certificate

We are practising safe social distancing for all our classes.

Policy for classes held at schools

  • Tables will be cleaned prior to the children entering the room and staff will have used hand sanitiser
  • All children will use hand sanitiser on arrival
  • Children will be kept in Year groups within the room and sat down in rows, socially distanced as much as possible
  • Only 15 children will be enrolled for each session
  • Each child will have their own paper bag with a needle, pins, needle threader and scissors which remains theirs for the term
  • All children must remain seated during the session
  • If a child feels unwell they will be taken out of the room and we will liaise with the School Office
  • On leaving the session children will put away their own equipment into their bags and leave on the table in front of them
  • We will then collect them into sealed bags
  • Tables will be cleaned before the next session begins and at the end of the last session
  • Registers will be taken so we know attendance
  • Teachers will be unable to collect or to find and remind children to attend their session, please ensure you remind your child on the day to attend their session at the correct time

  • The studio will be kept well ventilated

  • Children are welcome to wear masks at parent/carer’s discretion

Refund Policy

For school classes, should the school close for a period of  2 weeks or more, then a refund for missed sessions only will be issued. We are unable to offer refunds where the class is still running – even if your child is unwell, self-isolating or has forgotten to attend a session, as we need to pay for staff and room hire.

For studio classes, full refunds will be issued if a person is unable to attend a pre-booked session due to illness or self-isolation, in all other circumstances we will issue a credit note or a sew-at-home kit.

For studio-based term time club
Refunds will only be given should Sew What? notify you that the club is unable to run for whatever reason, or if government Covid-19 guidelines change.

In the instance whereby sessions are missed due to an individual’s illness or through self-isolation, a sewing kit will be made available and delivered free of charge (Local TW1 & TW2 postcodes only).
