Covid Class Guidance

Updated May 2022

In line with current Scottish Government Youth Work guidance, EYT can operate face to face classes. We ask that all parents/guardians and, where appropriate, young people make sure you have read through this page before attending an EYT class. 

Before attending EYT 

  • If any EYT student has any symptoms of COVID-19 (https://www.nhsinform.scot/self-help-guides/self-help-guide-coronavirus-covid-19) they must not attend EYT class.
  • If any EYT student has been asked to self-isolate for any reason, they must not attend EYT class.
  • If an EYT student has a cough but is otherwise well and has had a negative COVID test result, then they can still attend their session. You must contact EYT to inform us of this before attending.


Entering and leaving EYT class

  • Parents/guardians please drop off students at the entrance gate. 
  • Drama leaders will bring all younger students out to the gate for collection at the end of class.
  • It is important that students are dropped off and collected on time.
  • We understand that unavoidable situations can happen. If you are going to be late please phone EYT on 01316776406 to let us know and we will arrange to meet you at the gate.
  • Students who make their own way to EYT should arrive on time. Drama leaders will collect them at the start of class. They should leave promptly at the end of their session.


Moving around the building

  • Face coverings are no longer required, however, if your student wishes to wear a face covering they will be supported to do so.
  • Hand sanitiser will still be available outside each hall.
  • All door handles and surfaces will be cleaned between sessions and regularly throughout the day. Hall doors will be opened for ventilation between classes.


During EYT class

  • Please consider what your child brings to your class – the fewer items the better.
  • Students must wear comfortable clothing they can move around in: layers and sunscreen are important as classes may take place in the gardens. 


    • All classes are drop-off classes, with the exception of Preschool Dramatots – if your child needs a parent to stay with them, we ask that only one parent attends.
    • All class registration is done online via your EYT account



  • No food or drink will be allowed in classes unless otherwise stated, apart from student water bottles. Please ensure water is labelled with name.
  • Toilets will be accessible to one person at a time. Hands should be washed for at least 20 seconds and following current guidance. Hand sanitiser will be outside all halls for use before re-entering.
  • EYT operates a NOT NUTS policy.



  • Any requirement for First Aid will be dealt with in line with our current policy.
  • If a student is ill the student will be able to remain in the class or the EYT office with a member of staff until a parent/guardian can be contacted to arrange for collection.


Online alternative

  • In the eventuality of a lock-down or whole class needing to self-isolate, all affected classes will move online.


Important information 

  • Please continue to follow the Scottish Government Covid guidelines.
  • As this situation is continually changing, we will regularly review the current government and health guidelines and send you any updates as required to ensure the safety of our young people and staff. We will endeavour to give as much notice as possible of any changes.
