August 2020

Looking ahead to the Autumn Term . . .

As we prepare to return to all our schools, we have been giving considerable thought to how Freshwater can deliver its engaging and interactive drama workshops.

Quite simply, our aim is to create a safe experience for everyone involved. We recognise that schools have a fundamental duty of care towards their pupils and staff and we will do all we can to support you in this, whilst also ensuring that our facilitators can work safely.

We are finalising a set of guidelines, which outline exactly what can be expected from a Freshwater session and how we have adapted to ensure the safest delivery possible. These guidelines have been drawn up based on Government guidance for Schools and the Education Sector, along with guidance for the Performing Arts Sector.


Key principles:

  • Socially distanced sessions and minimising contact visit
  • Enhanced cleaning procedures
  • Enhanced hygiene measures
  • Safe delivery spaces
  • Key protocols for facilitators to follow before, during, and after sessions


In addition to these guidelines, a risk assessment, conducted using HSE guidance, will be available to all schools if required.

We are looking forward to visiting schools again, bringing the curriculum to life with our drama workshops. Adhering to these principles will create a safe workshop environment for children, teachers and facilitators alike.  We want you to book with confidence, and to work with you so your children can enjoy all the benefits and fun of a Freshwater session.
