|Face-to-face assessments have resumed and a number of steps have been taken to make sure that the workspace is Covid-19 secure and that the governement guidelines regarding social distancing are followed. These include:
- The child, young person or adult being assessed will be able to come into the premises via a separate entrance. They will be greeted outside and then parents will be asked to wait outside, perhaps in their car.
- The assessment room will be well ventilated and will be set up with two tables of over 2m apart to enable social distancing.
- Both myself and the child/young person or adult will be provided with hand sanitiser and the room and equipment will be thoroughly sanitised and well-ventilated before and after the assessment.
- There is a Perspex screen between myself and the child/young person or adult.
- There will be no passing of materials between myself and the child/young person or adult .
- The child/young person or adult must bring with their own pencils, pens and pack of tissues. I ask that they also bring some water and a small bag to dispose of the tissues, should this be necessary.
- The wearing of a mask or visor will be discussed in advance of the assessment.
- A feedback meeting will be arranged at a convenient time during the afternoon, on the same day as the assessment, via Zoom, where the findings and ways forward can be discussed.
- A maximum of one child/young person or adult is seen per day so that the assessment area and materials can be thoroughly sanitised between assessments.
- If you or anyone in your household is unwell or shows any symptoms of Covid-19 during the 10 days prior to the assessment or has a cold on the day of the assessment, then we would need to postpone. Please check the current government guidelines regarding Covid-19.
