ArtBase Online Class Policy and Guidelines

In order to create a safe environment for pupils and staff when taking part in ArtBase Zoom classes the following considerations must be observed. By accepting the Zoom meeting ID and joining the meeting, with parental responsibility, you agree to the terms set out in this document. 

  1. Our children’s Zoom classes are only to be accessed by a device in a communal family space. 
  2. The children’s Zoom classes should be supervised by an adult to deal with any technical difficulties. 
  3. The meeting ID is to remain confidential and not to be shared with anyone that it was not designated to. Each Zoom class will have a different password which will be emailed to participants before the sessions.
  4. We require that children only use first names or appropriate nicknames on screen. 
  5. Strictly no recording, photography or screenshots of the Zoom class are allowed by participants. Participants seen to be breaking this rule will be immediately banned.
  6. On entering the meeting, participants must validate their identity by face to face contact with the host.  Once validated participants can choose to turn off their video if they do not wish to be visible during the class.
  7. The Zoom class will be recorded by the hosting teacher and accessible for 7 days following the class, after which it will be deleted. If you do not wish your child to be visible on the recording you can disable the video function before the recording starts.
  8. The Zoom class will be locked by the teacher 5 minutes after the start time so that it can only be accessed by authorised participants. Unfortunately, anyone arriving late to the meeting will not be able to gain access even with meeting ID, but will be sent a copy of the recording as soon as it is available.
  9. For participants some Zoom facilities will be disabled by the host teacher. This includes but is not limited to the screen record function, chat and screen share.
  10. Lastly the same behaviour expectations that are set within a classroom apply to the Zoom class and the teacher retains the right to terminate a pupil’s participation. Please be conscious of background environments and others in the room.
